I don’t even know where to start with this heartfelt beach wedding! These two could not be more perfect for each other! Garrett has been my step-brother for almost 20 years and I love him like a brother, especially after we made it through high school together…LOL! Growing up, I always loved hanging out with him. He’s goofy, hilarious & so fun to be around but he didn’t always act like that in front of everyone until Kelly came around! She brings out his true self and it’s one of the most amazing things I’ve ever witnessed! Kelly is so warm, so kind, so loving! I couldn’t have picked a better wife for Garrett! There are so many beautiful & heartfelt stories in this wedding weekend that I don’t even know if I can put it into words properly but I will do my best and let the photos tell the rest of the story …
A sweet note from Kelly’s stepmom… Kelly and her gorgeous daughter, Malia… I was in tears pretty much this whole day! Their new family! His & hers have now become theirs……and it’s so sweet how well they get along! Like mother like son… little models! I think our whole family was tears all weekend too! : ) After we did their first look & most of the family photos, we headed to beach for the ceremony…A circle ceremony on the beach… surrounded by love! I noticed a little lady bug land on Garrett’s collar … obviously good luck! : D During the ceremony, Kelly gave a necklace to Gabby & Garrett gave a necklace to Malia…… it was just the sweetest thing!
Gabby sang the sweetest song in her beautiful little voice and brought everyone to tears!Every little moment of this intimate ceremony was perfect! Aren’t they just the cutest couple?!?! : DThen we went back to the house for a little reception while the sun set.
The kids ran off to the beach and came back with this! Everyone danced the night away …… it was the perfect day!
Garrett & Kelly, I love you both so much! It was such an honor to photograph this beautiful day in your lives! We miss you already and can’t wait to come back and visit! We are so incredibly happy for you!
