Kelsey and Joe and their families planned a truly amazing wedding. The day was full of laughter and surprises. Kelsey and Joe exchanged thoughtful, yet humorous gifts before their first look. Kelsey surprised Joe with a sing-a-long during the ceremony. Kelsey and her mom organized a giant, absolutely incredible golf course cake by Sweet Cheeks Baking company to surprise Kelsey’s father for his birthday. And then there were a ton of awesome personal details everywhere you looked. From sentimental pieces of jewelry on Kelsey’s bouquet, Grandma’s angel subtly watching over the reception from their cake, to a M&M jar just for Joe at his place setting, no small detail was overlooked. And Staci and team Bliss Events did a truly incredible job executing the vision for this wedding which was no small feat!

Kelsey, Joe, you have inspired me to stay true to myself and to find time to laugh more and fill life with surprises. I’m humbled to have been a part of your wedding day. Lynette, Larry, Britt and Nancy, thank you so much for your hospitality. It is very much appreciated!!
