Jesse & Kelly’s wedding day at Perona Farms was such a special wedding for me for so many reasons! You see Kelly was not just any bride that I welcome into the Brielle Kaschak Photography family, but I have known her for as long as I have known my husband and his best friends ( since middle school)! I was so excited when we first sat down to talk wedding day details, especially after she told me the venue because it was the same place I had gotten married a few years ago!
When I had met Jesse and Kelly last year for an engagement session at a park in Springfield, there was one thing I knew was certain, they loved each other, and loved their dogs too! They even brought along the two dogs to the engagement session! So it was only natural that they should be included in some fashion on the wedding day. Sure enough, not only was there photographs at a table, but also a signature drink in their honor at the bar!
As a photographer I see so many different ideas for wedding guest books, and I think Kelly & Jesse’s guest book was my favorite so far! On a table, they had a wooden frame that said, “Happily Ever After starts here”, with string and clothes pins to hang photographs. As if that was not good enough, the next part made my photographer heart so excited, Kelly had gotten a Fuji Instax instant camera!! Guests were LOVING taking pictures and seeing them come up instantly on the film and hanging them on the frame. I was automatically approached at a few different times to help load the film because nobody really knows how to work them, but it was so much fun capturing some shots on film for guests, and of course my digital camera too!
In the end, it was such a great joy to be there as the two families came together to celebrate such an sweet couple! Congratulations Jesse & Kelly, I wish you nothing but lots of love and happy memories together!
This was an heirloom ring Kelly wore for the big day, how stunning!
A little rain during the first look did not stop them, I love how they turned out in the orchard!
