I tend to think couples start to look alike after being together for a long time. I remember meeting Chris and Chelsea for the first time when they were dating and thought they were brother and sister, which means that after being married for awhile they will be identical! Clearly they are not brother and sister but an awesome couple who are now husband and wife. Their wedding took place at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church and Kimball Hall in Roswell, Georgia on a super gorgeous spring day. All of those purple flowers you see on trees (Wisteria- they are actually a vine) were in bloom and covering the trees at Kimball Hall making for a perfect setting for the reception. Chelsea chose tiffany blue as one of her main wedding colors and had a lot of thoughtful reception details, like a timeline of major events in their relationship and pictures of each bridesmaid and why they are significant to Chelsea. Each table had significant numbers to Chris and Chelsea's relationship and an explanation of those numbers. They did an awesome job personalizing their wedding day!
One part of the day that really sticks out to me is Chelsea and Chris' flower girl, Audrey. She just cracked me up all day but the best was when she read the reading during the wedding ceremony. It was so special to hear her little voice read about God's love, how he loved us first. And to hear her say big theological words from the bible like "propitiation." It was my favorite ceremony reading yet.
Chris and his groomsmen are clearly close (figuratively and literally as you can see:). They are a really fun group of guys who made sure to give Chris a hard time and make him laugh all day. And when it came time to dance at the reception they made sure to bust a move.
One of my favorite moments of the day was seeing Chelsea's grandmother give her two thumbs up before she walked down the aisle. So precious! I hope to one day be able to see grandchildren get married!
Kimball Hall is a beautiful reception venue with a real family feeling to it. I loved how wonderful and personal the staff was to work with at every step of the evening and what a beautiful job the owner, Julie, did in making everything go smoothly and being great to work with. I can't recommend this venue enough! And check out the reception ballroom... incredible.
Chris and Chelsea- thanks so much for having me and the talented Steven Wallace photograph your wedding... you guys are clearly in love and so loved by those around you; I hope this day always reminds you of that!
