Meredith is one of my “Raleigh girls.” I’ve photographed the wedding of one of her friends each year since 2006 & its like a reunion every time I show up to shoot. I was so excited to see everyone, I didn’t even notice the little baby belly on one of my 2008 brides, Dee! ( Congrats guys!) I think the world of this group & can’t wait to see who will be next to tie the knot!!

Meredith & Chad’s day had no shortage of sweet moments. Chad designed a special scrapbook for Meredith as a surprise wedding gift (see below). It documented their story leading up to their wedding day & even included a few images from their engagement session. I know these two have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them…they are truly the very best of friends. Here are a few of my favorite frames from the day…..Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Awww, Kellie! This is exactly why we hired you! We haven’t even seen the gallery yet and we’re so thrilled…you captured some amazing moments. We can’t stop looking at them and will be for many, many years to come! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  2. Kellie, we cannot wait to see you at the next wedding too!! It is always a pleasure :) I love the blog post and cannot wait to see the gallery! I have to say I just love the one of Meredith in the mirrors as she reads the card from Chad…what a sweet moment that we would not have seen otherwise…love those moments that you always seem to capture!

  3. These are so precious and we can’t wait to see the rest!

  4. Definitely tells the story of the big day =) #1476 belongs LARGE and on CANVAS…it is spectacular and I hate that I missed the flare – ughh!!! I am sad that Gingi didn’t make the blog though… I know everyone would have loved seeing him here! =) Congrats again Mere & Chad, hope this is just the first of many amazing days for you!

  5. Emilee, I totally agree with you about 1476! And I can’t BELIEVE I forgot to blog “Gingi”!!! I will add him tomorrow. He deserves his own blog post… ;)

  6. At the risk of sounding like a total sap I just want to say that is the sweetest little card ever that he gave her!!!! I got a little lump of emotion in my throat. What an adorable wedding. Filled to the top with sweetness just like you said. Beautiful heart warming images as always Kellie. :)

  10. Yay for more awesome Kellie shots! I love that you did our wedding & that you’ve been able to shoot so many of our friends’ weddings as well. Your work speaks for itself in each wedding you do–I love your creativity and the intentionality you have of getting just the right shot. The one of Meredith & Chad dancing with her parents in the background is one of my favorites. Hope to see you at the next wedding…or maybe at a shoot of our little one!
