Michael and Kelly’s wedding was so special to me! I’ve known Kelly for a few years because she is a dance instructor at my daughter’s dance school, Adagio, in Lake Wylie, SC. From the minute she asked me to photograph her wedding, I felt like I was a member of her family. When we did her bridal portraits, I was greeted with hugs from her mother and grandmother. That family love was such a blessing when, on the morning of the wedding, I received word that my grandmother had passed away. I could not have asked for more than to have been with such an incredible family of truly loving people. Michael and Kelly’s wedding was amazing. They share a love like that of my grandmother and grandfather – one that is genuine and everlasting. Kelly’s relationship with her grandmother was so similar to mine with my grandmother and it brought me back to my own wedding day and having my grandmother by my side. What an incredible day it was, to celebrate love and family just as my grandmother did every day of her life! I will forever hold this wedding and the Richardson and Bartlett families dear to my heart.
