When Kelly originally reached out to me about photographing her wedding, I thought it was so cool when she told me it was going to be a camping wedding! Shannon and I love being outdoors, and the idea of a camping wedding just seemed like so much fun!
Kelly & Hank, along with Kelly's daughter Allie, who was Kelly's Maid of Honor, often spend time together fishing and enjoying beautiful spots in California. I love that the took what is special and meaningful to them and added their own special touches for their wedding day.
Kelly & Hank actually met in high school, but it wasn't until years later that they reconnected through old friends and sparked up a relationship. When I met Kelly and Hank for their engagement session is was clear that they just 'get' each other. I love seeing couples who know just when their partner needs a hug or a laugh, and Kelly and Hank are that for each other.
A couple months before the wedding, the crazy rain we got in Northern California flooded the campsite where their wedding was planned. I know it made Kelly nervous that it might not be as perfect as she wanted it on her wedding day, but as you'll see below, it was an absolutely gorgeous day! The ladies got ready at the Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort & Spa in Livermore before heading to the camp site.
Kelly and Hank had a beautiful wedding day filled with love, laughter, sweetness, and a few hitchhiking insects along the way! We wish them (and Allie) boatloads of all of those things (minus the insects) in their lives together.
We hope to see you guys again soon, and maybe kick back by the lake on a warm summer evening!
