Kelly & Phillip – Hayfields Country Club

Oct 22, 2012

As I go through these wedding photos, I really have to stop and think was this wedding real? It was too perfect. Everything was amazing. So amazing that I have over 5000 photos to go through. Kelly and Phillip are both the biggest sweethearts you will ever meet. I got to know them so well at their engagement session in DC. They told me about how they met at a birthday party happy hour, using the lamest pick up line ever. You know at happy hours that usually you get a few apps maybe and drinks, well, Kelly ordered a salad. And Phillip, suave and charming, went up to Kelly and said “Is that a caesar salad you are eating?” Luckily, it was the last pick up line he ever needed.

Last Saturday was just perfect. The weather, the fun and total awesome people, the entertainment, everything was amazing. And I think it is time to finally, after 9 days of mulling over what photos to choose, show you some photos. Also, I would like to thank all of the vendors from the night!! Good vendors can make or break a day and these are some of my dream team of vendors!

I loved this idea! They used years of their lives as table numbers!

You have no idea how cool it is to walk into a reception venue and see one of your photos blown up on canvas. So cool.

The bridesmaids sent this text to Phillip before the ceremony started. So cute!!

Just stunning.

I think some of you photog friends would be shocked to know that most of these are SOOC! (straight out of camera)

I know I already showed you these, but they are just so pretty!

Reception Toms!

I can’t even begin to talk about this guys smooth dance moves.

These girls don’t know it, but I heart all of them! Especially the one to the left of the bride, who was the one who referred Kelly to me, you might remember her better from this post.

This is either Don’t Stop Believing or Total Eclipse of the Heart. I can’t remember. But it was epic.
