Kelly and Mike have been patiently waiting for what seems like forever for their blog post, so I am just going to jump right in with no further ado.
Kelly is another of my fabulous Talbot’s brides, and she just might be the sweetest girl walking the planet. The moment I met her and Mike I knew I wanted to photograph their wedding — they both have this lit-from-within quality that photographers go crazy for. When I did their engagement session in the spring, I was hooked!
I spent the morning with Kelly, her mom and sister, and her super-fun friends in a private cabin at the Boston Golf Club where they were getting ready. Kelly was so relaxed and happy and at ease with the whole process, which makes everything flow so nicely. I was lucky enough to have Wayne Chinook along as my second shooter that day, and he spent the morning with Mike and his guys and I am so pleased with the results. Mike is just plain awesome. Seriously. He’s a guy you just want to hang out with all the time.
After Kelly got into her absolutely stunning dress (seeing her girls react when she came into the room was a high moment of the morning), we headed off to Indian Pond to get ready for the ceremony. The bridal suite at the Club is right at the front of the building so that you can see all of the guests as they arrive, but it has one-way glass, so that those walking by have no idea what’s happening inside. When the guys arrived, all of the girls went over to the window to watch them come in, and the look on Kelly’s face when she saw Mike just sent little love arrows shooting through the room. She is GORGEOUS and just lights up when she sees her guy. The ceremony was lovely — it’s a good thing Mike is tall because the sun was so bright and would have been directly in Kelly’s eyes if not for him! — and once it was over we all headed off to the links for some fun wedding party photos.
After some great speeches that had me and Wayne teary-eyed, the dance floor was packed all night. I am so happy for these two and I feel incredibly honored to have been a part of their day. Enjoy these photos!
