This wedding was one I was waiting for all summer long! Keli is my best friend Kevin’s little sister, and she totally feels like a little sister to me. I grew up in Missoula alongside their family, and have witnessed first-hand Keli grow up into the beautiful and caring young lady she is.
Keli’s been wonderful at including in her wedding planning process (#photographerdreams). She always texted me ideas, invited me to view the venue, and we’ve met up multiple times to go over all the details. I knew right away when she and her family went to Kleinfeld’s in NYC and sent me a picture of her LITERALLY “Saying Yes to the Dress”–aka the most incredible Pnina Tornai gown–that this wedding was going to be a real life Disney fairytale.
It was that and SO MUCH MORE! Keli’s ballgown was by far the most beautiful thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on. She looked beyond brilliant (thanks to her amazing glam team that totally killed it with all the bridesmaids’ makeup) and her dress fit her to a tee. Price was overcome with emotions seeing his beautiful bride at the first look…and I might have cried a little too. Their wedding party was also super duper fun! I love massive bridal parties, and this one with 20 people was the biggest I’ve ever photographer (or super close to it)! Did I mention that Keli’s grandma made the bridesmaids skirts BY HAND?!?! Like I said, dreams come true.
The ceremony was so sweet, and Keli and Price really incorporated all of their family into it. It was so touching. Then, we all danced the night away and celebrated this beautiful new couple! Cue: sparkler exit and riding off into the sunset on a horse drawn carriage (okay, okay, no horse drawn carriage, BUT they were totally real life Prince Charming and Cinderella!)
CONGRATS KELI & PRICE! Love you both so darn much!
