Where to even start with this day!!! From the moment I walked in to the mall salon, to the last song I heard exiting the VFW in Waverly… this day made a mark in my heart. I can’t even begin to share how sweet this couple is! Kelsey and Josh and their son became a family, forever, and it truly couldn’t have been a more gorgeous July afternoon to start life off together!
These two love their people— it’s not hard to see, especially once you know they each had seven friends/family standing up with them in their wedding! Not to mention the kiddos. SO many cute nieces & nephews and friends! (Kelsey is a teacher, which possibly explains a little bit. Haha!!)
Kelsey’s style also shone brightly on this day. Rose gold & navy accents were everywhere, I couldn’t handle it! My heart. SO pretty. Alsooooo, her wedding bouquet designed by Ecker’s Floral in Waverly should win awards. I seriously considered stealing it. :) (Not really! But if a bride gave me flowers ever I’d probably have to offer her a place in my future bridal party.) #flowerobsessed Make sure to take note of the matching family converse shoes & Josh’s super unique wedding ring!!
First looks with dad… always brings out the tears! (For the bride, dad, and me!)
Next up, time for the actual first look!… or so groom Josh THOUGHT. Haha! I was SO excited for this prank first look. Josh’s family is very into practical jokes, so I know Kelsey is gonna be a great fit there. ;)
Ben is the husband of Anna (matron of honor). He was the only guy willing to find a dress to wear, and he had a BLAST. Later on, he told me that he was so hot outside in his dress clothes that he wished he’d kept the dress on! hahahaha.
For real this time…
MARRIED!!! On to the reception!
Congrats, Josh & Kelsey!! I’m such big fans of you & your family. Can’t wait to keep up and see what adventures are in store for the 3 of you! Love forever, Amelia
