They first bumped into each other at a Naval pizza fundraising event. At first glance, Kelly was breathless and had to leave the room to get some air. She found out later that this “breathtaking” individual was named Dave and just happened to be her co-worker/friend’s roommate. How could this be?!?! Kelly has been over to her friend’s apartment several times before, but never saw him…most likely cause he stuck to his room. From then on, they started to hang out more and more and the rest is history. What was once dubbed as Operation White Bread, turned to Operation White Cake this past weekend when Kelly + David tied the knot at Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club in San Diego.
With Annie still on the sidelines with baby Jerelle, we had our friends, Jared and Jackie, join me to capture the moments as Kelly + David were getting ready…Kelly in her wedding dress and David in his Navy Dress White Uniform. They shared a very intimate moment alone during their First Look before the ceremony. (For those, who don’t know what a ‘First Look’ is, I’ll explain in a future post.)
The reception was filled with lots of fun and emotion. Something unique was the “Married the Longest” dance where all married couples were brought out to the dance floor, and the DJ would eliminate couples as he called out # of years married. In the end, the couple left standing were Kelly’s grandparents for having been married 50+ years!!! What had me teary-eyed was the dance David saved for his mom, Connie’s best friend Cathy. Elvis’ Kentucky Rain will do that to a person =p.
Congrats again Kelly + David…you now have each other as partners-in-crime!
