Kevin and Kelsey met on Mouse Mingle, which is appropriate considering how they both are the biggest Disney fans that you will ever find. You could say that it was love at first contact, but it was their first date that sealed the deal. They both knew immediately that they had found their happily ever after.
Their wedding was nothing short of a fairy-tale. It was an Enchanted Forest/Disney themed wedding. Their colors were green and purple. The Bellingham Golf & Country Club was transformed with moss, evergreens and moss covered mickey mouse heads. You truly felt like you were having tea in the Disneyland gardens. Every detail honored their families, their love story and their passion for all things Disney.
Kelsey, her mom and her sister (who were also her bridesmaids) got ready together at the The Chrysaliss INN. Kelsey did a first look with her dad that he had me and everyone in the hotel lobby crying. Shortly after Kelsey gave both of her parents hand-written letters and gifts to thank them for all they had done for her. Kevin did the same for his family. I have never had a couple who was so thoughtful and gracious to their families on their wedding day.
Their ceremony was an intimate celebration with their closest family and friends. Kevin & Kelsey wrote the whole ceremony in addition to their own wedding vows. I loved every word and I hear that Disney is already trying to purchase the script.
The weather held out for most of the day and allowed us to get some amazing photographs outside on the golf course. To honor some of Kelsey & Kevin's favorite things we recreated a Star Wars Themed Photograph for Kevin & had a Giant Cat chasing the wedding party for Kelsey.
The reception was just as magical. The food, and even the drinks were symbolic to the Disney theme. Everyone in attendance had a wonderful time. Kevin & Kelsey had a grand bubble exit before they headed to Hawaii for their honeymoon. This was one for the record books...
Kelsey & Kevin: I am so happy that you two found each other. It is clear to everyone who knows you that you belong together. Your adventure may be just beginning but I know you two are on the road to happily ever after. I pray you always make time to be silly together. I pray that you keep the romance alive, and that you laugh often. When the next generation says 'Once Upon a Time' they will be writing stories about you. I wish you both all the love and adventure that this life has to offer.
