Russell and Kelsey are M-A-R-R-I-E-D! I had such a BLAST with these two and their sweet friends and family this past weekend at this new venue in Austin, TX right outside of Dripping Springs. My face was cramping up by the end of the night from smiling so much! They said their I do’s under the mature live oaks at The Addison Grove and danced the night away in their beautiful modern celebration barn that has a nice balance of rustic hill country and a modern clean feel.
They are such a sweet couple, and they are so cute on camera! We did their engagement session not too long ago (check it out here) and I got to know them a little bit better, but it wasn’t until their wedding that I realized how many of the same people we know! I saw my seventh grade pre algebra teacher and classmates I went to high school with, and Russell’s step-brother was actually our ring bearer in our wedding! What a small world. There was a surprise at every turn.
Speaking of surprises, Russell did one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen. Toward the end of the night he serenaded his new wife with the song “With You I Am” by Cody Johnson. There were audible “awwwww”s from all of the ladies, and Russell scored major brownie points! (Scroll down for those sweet images)
Kelsey and Russell, I wish you decades of happiness and love. It was an honor to be a part of your best day ever, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
The bridal suite at Addison Grove is A DREAM!!!
Russell’s ring inside was marble! This is a great idea for someone who is allergic to nickel, too. Will I ever tire of Kendra Scott jewelry? The answer is no! I can’t believe I babysat these two when they were little! Elijah (on the right) was my ring bearer 4 YEARS ago! This veil was Russell’s idea, because he knew how epic their photos would be. Thank-you, Russell! Kelsey and Russell have been together for six YEARS, so this cake topper was definitely fitting! The guys got a song! And then the girls. haha! And then Russell sang to Kelsey, and the whole room smiled.
