When I first met Kellie and Paul, I thought they looked just like Disney royalty. They are gorgeous people who look like they were lovingly drawn by the same animator for a classically romantic fairytale. But appearances aside, Kellie and Paul are beautiful inside as well, and it was a joy getting to know them from their engagement session to their gorgeous summer garden chic wedding.
Kellie carefully considered and designed every wedding detail from their getting ready photos to their amazing reception at Concorde Banquets. We fell in love with the stunning florals by Flowers by KH. Kellie got ready with the women she most cherishes at her mother's house; it was such a sweet moment when her bridesmaids, mom and now mother-in-law all saw her for the first time in her stunning Martina Liana gown. After some treats and a champagne toast the girls all loaded into a party bus and made their way to the beautiful St. Paul of the Cross in Park Ridge. Paul was nervously waiting for the ceremony to begin while looking dapper in a white jacket and classic styling by Emanuele Tuxedo. The look on his face was beyond adorable when he saw Kellie walk down the long aisle of St. Paul's, and throughout the day he kept his gaze fixed on his gorgeous bride.
After their emotional ceremony, Kellie and Paul greeted their guests before leaving the church through a shower of bubbles. We then snuck in some wedding party photos before the rain came at Vehe Barn before heading to Concorde's gorgeous ballroom for their reception. Kellie's emotions bubbled over when she entered the room she had so carefully designed. As the rain stopped and the sun peeked through the clouds we took more beautiful wedding party photos before settling in for an unforgettable evening of great food and joyous dancing. Kellie's dance with her Dad was one to remember, they opened the dance floor in style and stayed there for the rest of the night. It was the most perfect day, just like something out of a fairytale.
Congratulations, Kellie and Paul, we love you and wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
