Depending on who you ask, Reid + Kelly might tell you different versions of the story of how they met. One common thread is that in the end, they both knew that they were the right ones for each other. After their first date, it was clear that their lives would never be the same. It only made sense that Reid would make their love story continue by asking that all-important question: “will you marry me”. With sparks literally flying on the 4th of July, Kelly couldn’t help but say yes. Read all about Reid and Kelly’s timeless wedding at The Paxton Ballroom!
The bridesmaids all stood in unity with the bride by wearing the same shade of maroon in their sheath-cut dresses. Although each dress looked the same in that matter, the necklines were all different in order to show the uniqueness between each bridesmaid.
To complement the bridesmaids, the groomsmen kept it classic with a simple grey suit, white button-down shirt, and black tie. This tie played off of the groom’s all-black suit, white button-down, and printed tie.
To fit the elegant theme of the night, Kelly wore a simply classic wedding dress. It had a bateau neckline, meaning it ran high across her collarbone. Traditionally, that neckline also has a modest back. To give the dress a little more, Kelly’s dress had an open back that met in the middle of her back. Dainty pearl buttons then went all the way down to the end of her train. The fitted dress had an overall timeless feeling.
After the wedding party was ready, Kelly + Reid were ready to begin their ceremony at the Boystown Chambers Chapel. Two by two, the wedding party made its way down the aisle, finally leading up to the lady of the hour. Kelly stepped out in her wedding dress with a family member by her side.
