Kelly and Craig were Married at the Willow Oaks Country Club in Richmond Virginia in a very emotional Ceremony that left everyone reaching for their tissues. Kelly’s Dad is no longer with us, and not having him at the wedding was hard on everyone. But his presence was felt throughout the day. Like when a torrential rainstorm happened a few hours before the Ceremony, but miraculously stopped and dried up almost immediately, you just knew he had something to do with it. Craig is a photographer, check out his work here, and at first I was a little nervous to be working for someone in the business. But honestly, shooting for a photographer proved to be the best thing ever! He really thought about all the things that photographer’s love on wedding day’s and incorporated them into their wedding. The did a First Look, he hired Blue Steel Lighting to make the Reception look gorgeous, he made the timeline very conducive to a wedding photographer, and he and the Groomsmen even did a dance for Kelly after the toasts that no one knew anything about! It was great!! So, Thanks Craig! 🙂 And, Kelly and her Bridesmaids were a BLAST! I had so much fun hanging out with them. So full of fun and laughter. I was truly honored to be a part of your wedding Kelly & Craig. I laughed, I cried, I danced it was amazing and I know you two will have an epic love story until the end of time! Congratulations!! XOXO!
