kaelin and james | the wedding

A few things that I’ve learned about Kaelin and James, by Molly Connor

First of all, on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, Kaelin scheduled a meeting for the three of us to sit down at Panera to talk about their wedding and to look at sample albums, etc. That meeting was to take place on Sunday, March 17, 2013. She told me she would be wearing red pants. Five days from the time she requested the meeting. I learned that she’s prepared, on the ball and knows what she wants.

On Sunday, June 30, 2013, we met downtown to do engagement photos. Their first outfit option was a floor length purple sequins dress and a tuxedo. I learned that they could score high on the fancy scale.

A few months later, Kaelin sent me photos of the new closet that James built for her in the house that he was living in, but she had yet to occupy. When she sent me the photos, it wasn’t just a closet. Her closest had a closet. He had converted an entire bedroom into a closet with a dressing area and vanity. I learned that he would do anything for her.

Finally, on Friday, May 2, 2014, the three of us met for milkshakes and Chick-fil-A at their house. That day, I learned (well, confirmed really) that we were all going to be friends for a very long time.

One of the true joys of my job is to see a couple with a VERY specific look in mind bring it to fruition. They assembled of team of some of the most amazing vendors in town and that is exactly what everyone set about doing. It was really a magical day.
