Well prepare yourself for what is likely my largest blog post of all time. I have never shot a wedding at Bayville Golf Course, nor have I been to a wedding there or even assisted at a wedding there. So when this inquiry initially came through I was SO excited and after being there for not only their engagements but now their wedding, I want to learn to golf just so I can visit this beautiful spot over and over!
Kelsey & William have been through it for their wedding planning. Our first engagements got rained out (HERE) so we did it again (HERE). Their first wedding got moved, so we did it again at her parents’ beautiful home one very dark and day. Her first reschedule came and went, so we did it again in June 2021!! I mean two times the charm for these two all the way around!
Williams wrote to Kelsey, not every person is lucky enough to marry the love of their life twice and I think that sums it all up!! I wish I could remember word for word the poem her dad wrote at her reception because it completely choked me up. Kelsey, you better frame that(yes even though you feel a way about poems!)
While I was praying for a cooler day, it was not that but it wasn’t raining so I was thankful!!! It was HOT and so so HUMID outside but the bridal party was troopers (especially the guys in those suits!!) and William was happy the entire time. Kelsey was a VISION in her classic wedding gown ( I mean how lucky is she to wear it twice?!).
This blog post is massive because somehow I was supposed to narrow down images from her beautiful day?! Well just imagine how hard of a time I’m having for a final gallery. So many gorgeous shots, so many fun moments, it was a joy to finally celebrate BIG with these two!
