Kacey & Tony | Top of the Bay Wedding
Kacey & Tony’s Top of the Bay Wedding
I first met with Kacey & Tony well over a year ago and it seems like it took forever for their wedding day to arrive! While Tony wasn’t at our initial meeting, I instantly connected with Kacey and knew I would love to work with them. Needless to say, I was thrilled when they booked with me and we had a ton of fun at their engagement session last spring! These two are so perfectly matched for each other and I just love how they compliment each other in every way. Kacey is so vibrant and charismatic and you can actually see a change in Tony’s demeanor when he talks about her or when she enters the room. His face just lights up and I know it makes my heart skip a beat! I just know that these two are going to enjoy many happy years together and I am so grateful that I was able to take part in their special day.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t going to let Kacey & Tony enjoy their wedding day as planned. With the crazy storm we had last weekend, their ceremony was rained out and had to be held inside. However, we did luck out with a break in the rain to do some couples’ portraits, after the ceremony! We started the day at the Wingate by Wyndham hotel in Belcamp.
I just loved how personal all of Kacey’s bridal details were to her and her family. She wore her grandmother’s wedding set on her right hand, she had a special hair barrette (which we called her “wedding beret”), she wore her mother’s pearls and her veil was made from her mother’s wedding gown. How awesome is that? And her shoes! Oh, how I love her shoes. I don’t think there was any personal connection to the shoes, other than they were amazing. This is actually Kacey’s wedding rings on top of the box her shoes came in! I LOVE the sparkles! Both pairs of Kacey’s shoes… reception and ceremony! Kacey gifted Tony these awesome cufflinks! Kacey & Tony had a “non first look” and it was so sweet! After the ceremony, there was a break in the rain for some portraits. The ground was still pretty wet, so we kept the bridal party on the porch for a few fun photos! Also, since the ceremony started a bit late, I had exactly 25 mins to do all family portraits, bridal party and couples’ portraits. And you know what? This group ROCKED it. Mandy and Maria were an amazing help making sure everyone looked fantastic and these guys totally made it happen! I guess now would be a good time to mention that Kacey is a dancer… Tony may not be professionally trained, but he had some moves, too!
