We met Kelly and Josh way back in 2007, at the wedding of Sarah and Ben. Sarah and Ben’s wedding predates this blog, which goes to show you just how quickly three years can pass! Josh was the best man in Sarah and Ben’s wedding and, at the time, Kelly and Josh were boyfriend and girlfriend. Sometime during the reception, Lincoln or I took a photo of Kelly and Josh stealing a kiss (not unlike the photo below). Fast forward two years, I receive a call from Kelly, saying that she and Josh are getting married. The photo we took of their kiss at Sarah and Ben’s wedding had been one of their favorite photos as a couple, and now they wanted us to photograph their wedding. As a wedding photographer, that’s one of the best compliments you can receive!
Kelly and Josh were married at the place where they met: on the gorgeous campus of Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. I think that every couple hopes for sunshine on their wedding day. However, it’s also said that rain on your wedding day is lucky. Kelly and Josh were fortunate to have both! Everyone embraced the light shower that proceeded their ceremony with smiles and umbrellas. Just as Kelly and her dad walked down the aisle, the rain stopped and the sun came out. It was truly was beautiful and one of the most memorable outdoor ceremonies that we’ve photographed. Congratulations, Kelly and Josh! We wish you the best in life and in love.
Josh made the beer that they served at their wedding!
This is the photo I mentioned in my post:)
