Kelsey and Sidney :: Fall Auburn Wedding


October 7, 2017


He says she is bubbly, sweet, and present and she says he is loyal, intelligent, and rare. 

Kelsey and Sidney actually met in elementary school but were never close until one year when Kelsey returned home to Auburn for Christmas break and the rest, my friends, is history. These two are adventures but constant companions at the same time. It was clear through rehearsal dinner speeches and stories from family and friends, that these two are loyal to those around them. They love those around them well despite the many miles between them and their friends and family.

Their Fall Auburn Wedding on their family’s farm was so “Kelsey and Sidney” and reflected them in so many ways. Thorne and Thistle did an amazing job of creating stunning floral decor that celebrated so much of the natural fall beauty this time of year. From the flowers, to floating greenery at their ceremony, to the amazing floating floral arbor above the cake, every little detail was so perfect for this bride and groom and this wedding. There was a small threat of rain but we were so thankful that the weather allowed this beautiful outdoor wedding to happen flawlessly!

Some of my favorite moments were when Kelsey had a first look with her father and exchanged gifts with her parents… their love for each other truly overflowed. Kelsey and Sidney’s first look was pretty magical, especially hearing about all of the memories Sidney had running around in that exact field. I loved that during couple portraits Sidney found an awesome bug and picked it up and explained all about how cool it was. I loved how fun their bridal party was and how intimate their ceremony and reception were. Lastly, I loved their pups as some additional attendants in their wedding 😉

Kelsey and Sidney, what a perfect day your wedding was. I pray these images are just a small glimpse into the love and joy your marriage has brought you and those around you! Thanks for trusting me and loving black and white film as much as I do 🙂

I cannot handle dad looking at his own bride as he walked their little girl down the isle. Totally melted me.
