I cannot believe it’s been over a year since I first met Kelsey and Travis! After months of planning, anticipation, and the craziest engagement session weather ever, their wedding day finally arrived. And seriously, it was a fairytale. From Kelsey’s stunning illusion backless gown, to the beautiful turquoise touches (my fave color!), every detail culminated in a gorgeous day they’ll never forget.

But as much as I love pretty details, they weren’t my favorite part of this wedding day. Nope, not by a long shot. The best part was the down home, welcoming vibe, and that’s something every person there helped create. I couldn’t help but smile while watching friends and family reunite on the dance floor or over a game of corn hole on the sprawling back lawn. Even Leigh and I ran into old friends at this wedding!

(Heads up to our friends and fam: if we see you at a wedding, we’re taking a photo together!)

Travis’s Pennsylvania family was treated to the best southern Maryland has to offer. The Olde Breton Inn‘s breathtaking views offered a stunning sunset after a warm afternoon, and guests feasted on crab balls during cocktail hour.

Kelsey and Travis chose to exchange letters to one another as a wedding gift. Moments before walking down the aisle, we cleared the bridal suite so that Kelsey could read her letter. I don’t know what he wrote to her. But I know that watching this beautiful, strong woman blinking back tears as she read, fingers tracing the words, then finally bursting into laughter at one of his last sentences, was such a joy to witness.

As the party started and the sun began to set, I took Kelsey and Travis out on the lawn for sunset portraits. Travis kept calling Kelsey “wife” rather than by her name. I jokingly teased him about it, and he had the sweetest response:

“I just can’t stop saying it! She’s my wife!”

Congratulations, you two. Guthrie got the girl!
