Oh Kelsey & Anthony, how I adore you!  Your wedding was an inspiration to all couples because of the deep appreciation, pureness of heart, and radiating joy that you show each other and everyone around you.  Also, Eighteen Ninety Event Space wedding photography is a dream because the venue and staff are so amazing.  It is set up perfectly for couples tying the knot, wanting to celebrate, and have beautiful photos without leaving the venue. Both the bridal suite and groom’s preparation areas are full of character, beautiful light, and gorgeous decor. The outdoor ceremony, cocktail space, & indoor reception is perfect for a great party.  Then you add on the magnificent floral & designs of KP Event Design and all the time and planning (& other stellar vendors) Kelsey & Antony put into their wedding day…and oh my!  You will see.

See what I mean about a gorgeous bridal suite?  I love the image of Kelsey looking out at her ceremony site as it was getting set up.  The girls had matching robes and fun drinks so we made sure to photograph them all together before the bridesmaid dresses came out.  bride in robe with garter and bridesmaids toasting in robes

And the guys.  What a fun group.  Kelsey’s father really gave Anthony a hard time throughout the day about needing more goats.  If you haven’t heard the story, you should ask them about it.  But this “hard time” was met equally with a twinkle in his eye and eventually big hugs (and Anthony snuck in big smooches too).  Also a funny story. I love Anthony’s big laughs (not hard with his crew) and the image of his brothers helping him put on his jacket.guys getting ready at 1890 event space

My second photographer joked with Anthony that she was going to have me photoshop tears onto his cheeks while he was reading the card from Kelsey.  But who needs tears with expressions like this?  Then his mom helped with the pinning of the boutonnieres.  Throughout the day and evening, there were so many special moments between family members.  This is just the start. groom reading letter from bride, pinning of boutonniere with mom

A sneak peek for dad!  Check out that expression and mom looking on in the background when he sees Kelsey’s dress for the first time.  Pretty sure he was blown away. 

First look!  Check out the expression on Anthony’s face!  Followed by some magical portraits right after that capture the love and excitement they have on their wedding day. Couple's first look

Bridal party portraits & family formals:

Anthony and his flower girl had so much fun together.  So did the guys. 

I was lucky enough to have photographed Anthony’s brother’s wedding in the fall of 2015, so it was really fun to see these siblings together again.

Right before the ceremony, we took a little breather for some bridal portraits.  Her anticipation is there, but so is the excitement.

Guest are arriving and the bridal party is doing their job just right.

Their pastor, Andy Frazier, did a great job with their ceremony.  It was personal and inspiring.

The emotion right after the ceremony is so much fun!

Cocktail hour!

Check out that cake!  Take the Cake by Kay.

Photobooth and DJ & master of grand entrances: Ray with  Icon Entertainment  got the party started with a totally unique photo booth and super fun grand entrance. The newlyweds followed it up with their first dance.

After an amazing sit-down dinner catered by Brancato’s (the best wedding food I’ve had EVER!) we snuck out for 15 minutes for some golden hour portraits.  You just can’t beat that dreamy light and newlywed glow!

Look at that sun coming down on them! wedding day portraits of bride and groom

The cake cutting and toasts had no shortage of laughter (and some fear when Anthony’s brothers spoke).

Father/daughter dance and mother/son dance.  This was a first for me.  Anthony’s song for his mother had his words/voice overlaid ontop of the song telling his mom everything he loves about her.  So special.
