Kelsey grew up here, in this home.. with her adorable family (including her identical twin sister). That threw me for a loop…..but that story is for another day. There’s something so special about getting married on your own land where your little feet were just years before. It’s nostalgic and it makes me feel REALLY honored to be there…like here, come be a part of these memories upon memories, we believe in what you do! Talk about stopping your heart. The cool thing about this wedding was not only did I know Kelsey was beautiful beyond words, she has incredible fearless style, too. She has excellent taste in clothes, design & men. Specifically, Jesse. He is stylish, sweet and adores who she is…even from across the ocean (stationed in Naples, Italy). I know, he’s that cool.

Their unique relationship is evident to everyone and with that kind of love, I can’t help but be excited….even after 8 hours of backyard muddy-ness. So please, enjoy this backyard wedding in Gloucester, Virginia. Even nearly 1 year later, it is still on my heart & my mind.

Hello world wide web. Are you shocked to see new photos? Well sheesh louise in a fry pot SO am I. I guess I should start by apologizing for my hit or miss blogging over the past year, so…….I’m really sorry. I’ve been so *generously* reminded by those close to me that I haven’t blogged in a while and although it would be way more fun to say that I’ve been doing fun stuff instead, I’ll sadly have to blame it entirely on my websites hosting. Which is now completely switched over to someone else. HAPPILY. I fought and fought with my posting and finally figured out that it wasn’t wordpress or prophoto OR my internet and that GoDaddy was the problem. Did I just call them out right there? Oops. Well I said it. Can’t backspace now.

So I hope you can forgive my absence and will check back more frequently now! Starting things back up, here is part II of Stephanie & Josh’s adorable engagement photographed right down the road from our house in the cottons last few days.

xoxo,  k
