It was a whim, really. Kelly was freshly transplanted from Texas and attending a welcome party for his pilot class at Delta. It didn’t take him long to realize that the party was going to be a room full of men shaking hands and making small talk, so he and his friend went searching for something a little more fun. That’s when they stumbled upon Hand in Hand in the Virginia Highlands. Kelly had no way of knowing that by walking into that bar, he was on his way to meeting the girl he would spend the rest of his life with. Laura was hanging out with a group of her girlfriends, and she happened to run into Kelly at the sweet tea table. Their romance started with a simple question- “Why on earth are they serving sweet tea at a bar?” And the rest, as they say, is history!
I am so honored that Kelly and Laura have invited me to be part of their wedding. Laura is one of my sorority sisters, and she is such a classy, beautiful young woman. She has met her match with Kelly, who is friendly and charming, and seems that he could carry on a conversation with anyone. They’re the type of couple that can make you feel like you’re old friends in minutes, and I’m so excited to celebrate their marriage in November! They chose Eagles Landing Country Club as the location for their engagement pictures because Kelly is a member there and they love to golf together. I think these turned out so cute!
