Natalie and Kellen's wedding was one for the books! They hosted their beautiful Savannah wedding at Bethesda Academy in Savannah. Their ceremony was in the stunning Whitefield Chapel! If you ever are lucky enough to step foot in that chapel, you are in for a treat!
Natalie and Kellen's love story is truly one of my favorites. Just like every strong couple, they have been through some of the lowest lows and highest highs and managed to create a beautiful love story out of it. Natalie was previously married and had her two sons, Noah and Will. Kellen was the boy's babysitter. Unfortunately, Noah and Will's father passed away. Natalie told me on their first phone call that the boy's father loved Kellen, so it's so sweet that later on in life Natalie marries Kellen. Don't worry, Natalie and Kellen are only 7 years apart. ;)
Kellen proposed in Minnesota while they were sledding and the planning began! The girls began getting ready on Tybee Island and finished at Bethesda Academy. Once they were ready, I captured a precious first look of Natalie with her sons, Noah and Will. We took some bridal party photos before the ceremony began. Natalie planned the perfect decor for the chapel. Whitefield Chapel is beautiful on it's on, so she added just a hint of neutrals and greenery and it was PERFECT!
They wasted no time to pop the confetti for the reception and it was not long before the laughs filled the room. The speeches made the room laugh and cry, the food was delicious, the cake was stunning and don't even get me started on the flaming donuts! TO DIE FOR! One of my favorite parts of the day was the dance floor because of the wide age-range of people just having a blast!
Natalie and Kellen, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing the MDBP team to be part of your special day! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness and lots of confetti!
Thank you to all the vendors that made this special day come to life!!
