Last month, I photographed Kelsey and Matt’s gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Montauk Point Engagement session. Kelsey is actually one of my best friends so I am so happy they have chosen me to be their wedding photographer!
Kelsey and Matt first met when they were in high school, but did not begin dating until 2008. Matt is a musician and they reconnected at one of his band’s shows. Kelsey and her friend went to an after party following the show, and when she lost her ride home, Matt wouldn’t let her walk home by herself so instead, he walked her home. How romantic! 🙂
I asked Kelsey how she knew Matt was the one and she said: “I knew I loved him after only a few months. But, I knew he was the one when I saw how well he fit in with my family. It was just natural. Everyone loved Matt as much as I do.”
Kelsey and Matt were engaged right before Christmas this past year. From the bride: “I was working late because it was our employee holiday event at work. I was tired and cranky and couldn’t wait to get home. I walked into the house and Matt was waiting with our dog Betty. He asked me to come stand in a certain spot in the living room. All I was thinking was that I wanted to put my bag and my coat down. He wouldn’t let it go. So I stood in the spot. Then he got down on one knee. And I said yes!”
When Kelsey and Matt are not wedding planning, they like to go to the beach with Betty, they love going to concerts together, they also enjoy their backyard fire pit and drinking wine. They are planning a January 13, 2018 wedding at the Three Village Inn and Kelsey describes the wedding as “Classic with a vintage rustic charm”. After the wedding, they are looking forward to starting a family. They want to build a happy home full of love and want to grow into older versions of themselves. And true to their rock and roll souls, they want to ride their motorcycles off into the sunset together as two happy old people still very much in love. <3
Any advice for future bride’s planning?
“Elope. Haha. The advice everyone gives you really is accurate. It’s an undertaking! But, remember that the day is about celebrating the love of the couple getting married. That’s what matters.”
And finally, what are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?
“The dancing and the party!! We are dancing fiends and always tear up the dance floor at our friends’ and family’s weddings. Now it will be our turn to tear it up as husband and wife. (Finally!!)”
