This wedding is sooo special for me to post because it’s my cousin Kellie’s wedding! This wedding was beautiful, fun, and probably the most I’ve ever danced at a wedding. And it was the first wedding I photographed AS A BRIDESMAID! #goals… but this wedding isn’t about me, so I’m gonna just dive right in!
Kellie and Evan had a magical day. It may have been windy and cold but dang these two dominated the day, their wedding party and their families. The morning started out at the resort while the guys and the gals got ready. The guys were at a beach front house and the girls in a suite overlooking the beautiful OBX beach. These two shared a beautiful first look close to where they would be saying I Do and as a result, we got to see the day really come t together. I loved Evans response to seeing my cousin Kellie!
Soon after, family members and the wedding party joined them on the lawn and the bulk of portraits was done on the front of the day. The ceremony was beautiful, florals everywhere and the ceremony was sweet, short, but intimate. I especially loved the ring bearers who had a blast throwing petals! A friend/groomsmens married these lovebirds which was super cool.
Reception with show stopping! With beautiful florals covering a chandelier, a head table and everywhere you looked, it was stunning! Everyone cheered as they were introduced as Mr and Mrs Rutherford which they soon after did their first dance as husband and wife! My Uncle Rick shared a sweet welcome honoring his daughter and new son-in-law. My brother Josh prayed the blessing, and the parent dances were wonderful and special.
The night was wild, fun, hilarious and full of great moments. Being able to photograph a reception, then dance, then keep taking pictures was soo much fun. It went way too fast but was probably the best timeline we’ve made in years and would do it all over again. Evan and Kellie, wow, just wow. We love you guys. Thank you for trusting us and choosing us. We don’t take it for granted that you trusted us for something so intimate and once in a life time. We are so excited to make more memories with you and watch your love grow and flourish!
