I met Kelly a few years back when I photographed a wedding at the Columbia Conference Center. Kelly is the Social Events Manager at that venue and ever since then, we’ve spent time hanging out at wedding vendor events and I have always admired her amazing makeup skills and selfie game on instagram (I’m not kidding- she takes the prettiest selfies!) I first met Dan at a vendor party two years ago and I can still remember thinking how great those two were together and how much Dan made Kelly laugh and smile. I was so honored and excited when Kelly asked Dave and I to photograph their wedding!
Their engagement session (including a stop at Carolina Ale House) was a blast and Kelly’s bridal portrait session in Blythewood was gorgeous, but it’s the wedding day that we’ve all been looking forward to for so long.
I started the wedding day with Kelly and her girls at the Springdale House.
We did a first look with Kelly’s Dad and took a few family photos and bridesmaid groups at the Springdale House.
Kelly’s brother and co-officiant of the ceremony led the group in a prayer before the wedding.
Bonnie Brunt did an amazing job on this timeless white wedding cake.
Ronny of Partytime DJs got the reception party started with some dance tunes and a bridesmaids sing-along to MmmBop!
I hope you’re having a great honeymoon in Gatlinburg and I can’t wait to share all the rest of the photos from you big day soon!
-Katie and Dave
