You know when you meet someone for the first time and it feels like you've known them for decades? That's how this whole wedding felt. Spending the day photographing Kelsey and Danny was like spending time with dear old friends. They were so easy going and we immediately clicked.
Even though this was a large wedding, it felt so intimate. Kelsey and Danny are very loved -it showed in every detail of their wedding.
Ok, let's get to it. Kelsey and Danny were married at Kelsey's childhood home just outside of Bellingham, WA. I love when brides and grooms have meaningful locations for their wedding. It adds such intimacy to the wedding photos. The wedding rocked a spunky and surprisingly sweet goat, Trevor, you will see below. Although to be fair, I honestly don't know any other goats. During the ceremony, I ventured into Trevor's pasture to get some wide shots and he was very welcoming. A fun first.
Also, how gorgeous is Kelsey's wedding dress?! It was simple and vintage feeling. So good. Be sure to check out the surprise dance Kelsey and her bridesmaids performed for the boys. It was amazing. And as for the guys, check out the love note Danny wrote to Kelsey. On a mirror. In lipstick. Such a sweet surprise for his bride.
I could go on and on about this wedding. Keep your eyes peeled for more deliciousness when I share Kelsey and Danny's after wedding session. This is a fun alternative to engagement photos. Without further ado, please enjoy.
