I was SO excited to shoot my first wedding at Rip Van Winkle Gardens for Kelsey & Josh. Thheeennn I saw the forecast for that day and begun to worry. I met them at RVW and was automatically smitten by Kelseys amazing gown! I still cannot get enough of the detailed beading on top combined with a simple bottom! Despite the forecast the weather ended up being absolutely perfect (typical Louisiana). However, there was one hiccup to the day. Kelsey’s sister, and maid of honor, had gone into labor and unfortunately had to miss the wedding. At least she got her hair and make up done first, right?! But really – Kelsey and her family handled it all so graciously. During the reception they got word that the baby was born and it was such a beautiful moment! ( I admit, I shed a tear… or two).
I feel so blessed to have worked with Kelsey & Josh. They are honestly such genuine people and I’m so so happy for them!
P.S. I’ve NEVER shot (or even attended) a reception with this much dancing! I could barely get on the dance floor!
