I am sitting here this fine day in January enjoying having the windows open on a nice 70 degree day while I feel even warmer inside looking at all of the photos from Kelly and Adam’s January 12th wedding.  Although it was a chilly day and snow was in the forecast, all of the smiles were warm, the hugs were warm, and the love was warm.  Kelly and Adam live in Atlanta but Adam is from New Hampshire and Kelly is from Kansas, so they decided to have a wedding here in the midwest!  They were married at Country Club Congregational United Church of Christ with their reception at the Hobbs.  When I first saw the church, I immediately thought it reminded me of a church I would see in the Southeast part of the country.  It fit Kelly & Adam perfectly.

It was so enjoyable to be a part of such a wonderful celebration.  Kelly and Adam both are the kind of people who you can instantly feel good about, the kind of people you know have  lifelong friends and you want to be one of them.  They are smart, ambitious, warm hearted and endearing.  Kelly has a smile that will draw you in in seconds and while Adam may look like a sophisticated James Bond in his tuxedo, he is perfectly playful and hilarious.

I will tell rest of the story with the photos :)

I want to to give thanks to my second photographer, Mike Tsai, for helping me capture all of the wonderful moments, and my assistant Amber for of course making my job easier :)  And it was super fun working with one of my former brides, Erin Webb, as the coordinator for Simple Elegance!

I flew to Atlanta to photograph Kelly & Adams engagement session and we had such a fun time, so I want to start by sharing just a couple of my faves!

I cant help but remember a moment when we all walked through the Nelson to warm up for minute or two, the lady working at the Nelson smiled brightly at Kelly and said “you are the prettiest bride I have ever seen!”  So wonderful and true!

I have to admit I was really hoping we would get a bit or mare than a bit of snow that was forecasted. I was dying to photograph them in a good snow storm :)  But only a few flakes sparingly tossed around in the night.  But when I got home I saw that it stayed east and I had about 2 inches at my house!  So here is my snow photo :)Kelly&Adam-1160blog

Big fun!

I had Mike snap a shot of me with Erin, the lovely wedding coordinator and my very favorite wedding band :)kelly-me

 

Congratulations!  I hope you are still honeymooning in Paris and the islands!
