I love weddings. I truly do. I love everything about them. The excitement; the emotion; the gowns; the details.
And the wedding of Kristen and Seth that I photographed back in the spring with my good friend and colleague, Amanda Eller, was no exception. And it didn’t hurt that she chose a pretty shade of pink (which y’all know is my personal favorite) and cream as her wedding colors.
We started the day with Kristen having her makeup and hair done at Bella Lago salon in Salisbury. Kristen is such a beautiful girl – the makeup artist didn’t have to work too hard to get her ready.
All brides should be as happy as Kristen was on her wedding day!
Elvis had nothing on Kristen and her smokin’ blue suede shoes!
She had one of the most elegant gowns I’ve seen in a good while — I just loved it’s simplicity. Her mother and BFF/maid of honor helped her get into it and all zipped up. Yowza! Seth was looking all handsome like he’d stepped out of GQ Magazine… I love this image with Seth and his boys… And are these some stunning bridesmaids or what? These girls were such a delight to be around… Beautiful BFF….i can’t get over her eyes (yes, they were really that blue!) Could this little guy possibly be any cuter as he makes sure the coast is clear for the bride? I love ring bearers with personality – and this one was loaded with it! This image of Kristen just before she walked into the church with her dad is one of my favorites.
Being a daddy’s girl myself, this image just makes me happy. There is just something about brides and their dads on their wedding day …
Their traditional service was held at the lovely Gays Chapel United Methodist Church in Salisbury and was just a sweet display of love. Kristen was having a hard time holding back the tears. Another favorite image from their day… The new Mr. and Mrs…. They held their reception at the Historic Salisbury Train Depot – an amazing old train station that’s been restored and renovated especially for events like this.
A gorgeous cake for a gorgeous couple…and it was as yummy as it was pretty too!
Fun introductions at the reception…
These are two of my favorite first dance images – perhaps ever… They looked at each other like this all night long…. talk about the googly eyes….THIS is why i love weddings! The happy couple – so much in love! This image of Kristen and her dad is so poignant… I love how happy for them that their friends were… Cutting the cake… This bride certainly wore her boogie shoes….she was on the dance floor most of the night – with or without her groom! I just love a good party and a fun dancing crowd – and this bunch sure didn’t disappoint!
Thank you Kristen & Seth for allowing me to be part of your day – I was truly honored. And thank you, Amanda, for allowing me to be your sidekick and partner. As always, it was a blast!
