When we arrived at the VanLandingham Estate, I knew this is was going to be the perfect day! All the flowers were in bloom, the sun was out, and there was a buzz around the whole property of people getting ready and setting up for the wedding. I made my way to where the girls were getting ready. As I was introducing myself to all eight bridesmaids, a special guest made his grand entrance. Their awesome pitbull named Gatsby who was the ring bearer for the ceremony! It was a special moment when kelsey saw him on the morning of her wedding.
The First Look
It was already getting warm out but there wasn’t a cloud in sight which was a huge blessing because the entire wedding day was going to be held outside. Edward and kelsey shared a first look in the beautiful pathway through the garden. Tall green hedges hid them from the world and let me just say the way he looked at her in that moment, nothing else could have mattered. His sole attention was on his soon to be wife!
Being Their Photographer
One of the things I love about being a wedding photographer is that I get to capture beautiful moments between the couple and the people they love most in the world. The ceremony was perfectly set in the corner of the garden. Edward and kelsey read their vows under the flowering magnolia trees. One of my favorite parts was watching their flower girls walk down the aisle throwing flower pedals on the ground. Let me just say that they were Kelsey’s grandmothers and they nailed it!
Edward and Kelsey
Edward and Kelsey love each other, love their parents, and they quiet clearly love their friends! They danced the night away and shared so many sweet moments. Towards the end of the night I was able to sneak off with the bride and groom to take some beautiful evening portraits of just the two of them. And let me just tell you, well actually.. take a look for yourself. Below are just a few of my favorites from their magical day.
Big thanks to the vendors who made their day perfect!
