Oh, how I adore this couple and their beautiful wedding day! I am almost at a loss for words to describe this day but thankfully I am much better with taking photos to tell the story for me!
First of all, THESE TWO. They are the everything. Everything good and kind and fun and just an all around joy. As with most of my couples, I knew within minutes of meeting Kelsey and Andre that I wanted to be a part of this time in their lives. (And not just because Kelsey- like me- is a huge Green Bay Packers fan!) I loved hearing their story and all about their wedding plans. The details they wanted to incorporate into their big day were so thought out and their desire for their wedding to be so much more than just a celebration. It was truly a union of their lives before God and their families.
Chateau de Vie was the perfect backdrop to their classic, timeless wedding day. Kelsey's lace gown, the green and gold color scheme and the gentlemen looking dapper in classic black tuxes looked like something you'd see in a magazine. Walking into the bridal suite that day I instantly felt surrounded by friends. I always think you can tell so much about a couple by the people they have around them on their wedding days and just as special as Kelsey and Andre are, so are their friends and family. The entire day I felt more like a family member than a vendor.
My favorite part of the day was their first look in the Library. Kelsey had emailed me a few days before the wedding asking if they could have it there and in my mind I envisioned something so magical, and it turned out even better! They decided to share their own personal vows privately there before the ceremony and watching them both tear up, I couldn't help but join them.
The rest of the day was a dream. Fun and joy and tears and love and beauty and cake and dancing.
Everything you want in a wedding, theirs had it.
And it was perfect.
