Kelsey & Marcus | Wedding


Posted on May 6th, by Becca in wedding life. 18 comments

Kelsey told me on her wedding day that she remembers seeing Marcus on the dance floor at a high school party and thinking “THAT guys looks like a lot of fun”.  Fun is the perfect word for these two.  Each time I see them, they leave me smiling.  I’m sure that their friends rely on them to be the life of any party.  To top that, the Walsh and Perry families have wonderful and rare closeness.   All things that made this a fantastic first wedding of the season for me.  Enjoy a glimpse…

Kelsey is quite often “all smiles”

In the few times I have met them, I have admired Kelsey’s parent’s relationship.  This moment was so beautiful to me.

And some of my favorite frames from the day happened in the last 30 minutes, after last call, after the lights went up.  Here Marcus’ dad pulls him aside for a few words.
