On Saturday I had the joy and honor of photographing Kelly & Josh's wedding day at Worsell Manor in Warwick, MD. I have worked with this fun and inviting family before when I photographed Josh's cousin's wedding almost exactly 2 years ago. I have been counting down the days to see Kelly & Josh and their friends and family again!
Worsell Manor was a perfect venue for their wedding day festivities. The manor itself is where the ladies prepared for the day as well as the backdrop for their ceremony, and the barn perfectly housed their high energy reception. Man, am I thankful for the loft in the barn because there wasn't any room on the dance floor! What a party!
The day was absolutely perfect and highly emotional throughout. Even the sky shed a few happy tears :) Kelly & Josh have been together for 9 years and are high schools sweethearts, and their long anticipated day did not disappoint. There were too many moving moments to count but my absolute favorites were Kelly surprising Josh with an engraving on his wedding band just before their portraits together, the sweet notes they read from each other before the ceremony, and - by far my favorite - Josh's reaction to seeing his gorgeous wife for the first time as she walked down the aisle. Swoon!! What an incredible love these two share.
The decor and details of the day were impeccable for their fall wedding! The lovely cranberry hues, a part of Kelly's mom's wedding dress sewn into her veil, Josh and the groomsmen's socks, Kelly's grandmother's brooch on her bouquet, the handkerchief Kelly had made for her mom to carry, and all the handwritten signage...! Pfew! I love it. The time and attention to detail made their day extra special and unique.
Kelly & Josh - I know you two are lounging on a beach in Aruba soaking up every moment of your honeymoon. Congratulations again and thank you for allowing me the privilege of photographing your wedding day!
