Inn at Willow Grove Intimate Wedding
When asked what she wanted her day to be like Kelly very simply replied relaxed. She wanted a casual laid back affair where they could enjoy the evening with friends and family. The Inn at Willow Grove provided the perfect backdrop that late summer Sunday evening for their wedding. Keeping things simple and intimate Kelly and Lafayette celebrated their I do’s in a garden ceremony with the closest of friends and family. When I chatted with Kelly a few days prior to the wedding she asked me if we could take her parents up to the overlook for sunset photos. They were celebrating 30+ years of marriage and she wanted them to have a few beautiful portraits celebrating that love! I chatted with them during the shoot and her mom told me their let a friend take their wedding photos and let’s just say things did not go so well :(. So I hope these portraits make up a little bit for that! They were so sweet and I was thrilled to photograph them!
I have to say that Kelly had some of the most amazing shoes I’ve ever seen! I was slightly obsessed on the wedding day taking photos of them and Instagramming them :). The detail of the cutouts was so cool and props to Kelly for being able to walk in them and look like a million bucks!
