My cheeks still hurt from smiling at Kelsea and Jess’s wedding because I haven’t stopped! Kelsea and Jess’s smiles were so contagious! It was clear how happy, excited, and in love they were with each other!! Kelsea and Jess’s wedding at Great Marsh Estate left me truly in awe of the two of them! They are so thoughtful, kind, and fun! They threw the best party that truly lasted the entire day!

Walking into the bridal room, there were girls everywhere! With eleven girls in Kelsea’s bridal party, it felt like the party had already started! There was music playing, girls getting ready in all four rooms, and everyone was having a blast! I love it when the bridal suite pumps up the bride!! I knew from then on that the day was going to be just one huge joyful party!!

“It’s black and dark,” Kelsea said as I am placing her dress into place for the first look. Kelsea had told Jess for months about her dress and how black it was. She didn’t want to give away any real clues, which resulted in the most beautiful first look I’ve ever experienced! He couldn’t take her eyes off of her and kept stepping back to take another look! She was the most beautiful bride!!

Jess even shed some tears as Kelsea walked down the grand staircase and the aisle with her dad! He couldn’t wait to be married to his beautiful bride!!

By the time the reception started, everyone was READY to dance and celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs. Barger! I have never seen a dance floor stay so crowded for so long! The party never stopped. I couldn’t help myself when a few of my favorite songs came on and danced the night away with them all!

Kelsea & Jess

I hope you are having the best honeymoon in the Maldives and Dubai! I absolutely LOVED your wedding and can’t wait to share more with you two!! I wish you both have a lifetime of happiness and making each other laugh!!
