weddings: kellie & jeff

When I first met Kellie, we clicked RIGHT away.  I think it was around this time last year.  I instantly knew we’d make a fabulous team.  You may remember Kellie & Jeff’s NYC Engagement Session – where we walked around New York City and got some really great images.  I met Jeff that day, and was really taken with how fabulous they are together.  They are beautiful inside and out, and a LOT of fun to work with.

This wedding was SO fun to be a part of.  From the ceremony at Kirkpatrick Chapel to the imaginary double-dutch (jump -rope) on the dance floor at the Palace at Somerset, this party was NON-STOP.    Kellie & Jeff’s wedding was absolutely amazing – and an awesome event to be a part of.  Too many favorites.

Kellie & Jeff decided to see each other before the ceremony, which is a great way to have some  intimate time alone to see each other before the wedding and take a few photos together privately and then get formals done.  This enabled them to have the first few moments by themselves and enjoy the cocktail hour in it’s entirety.   This has become increasingly popular in recent years and I think it’s fabulous!

He just sorta, fell to the side right after he saw her 🙂  I’d say he looks pretty happy, wouldn’t you?  🙂

They had a NYC themed wedding.  Instead of numbering their tables, they named each with all of their favorite NYC Restaurants.  Blue Water Grill happens to be one of Jimmy and my favorite restaurants so of course I had to post this one in particular.
