Featured Wedding: Kelsey + Johnny

I am so excited to show off pics of one of our very own staff members daughter, Kelsey Parker who got married last fall to Johnny. They were truly one of the sweetest and easiest couples to plan with (and it always helps when you have a Mom who is a professional Wedding Hostess) and I am so excited to share their truly special love story....

Kelsey and Johnny met in the Deaf Studies program at UVU and a few weeks later, left to spend the summer in Ghana, West Africa, teaching in different towns and in schools for the Deaf. They dated the next school year and in May, headed once more to Ghana and taught again, in different towns. They were able to see each other a few weekends, and in July, Johnny completely surprised Kelsey by proposing in one of their favorite quiet spots! He gave her a temporary ring to wear in Africa, and presented her with the real thing in the airport when they arrived home. They both cherish the beautiful, brown, playful, Deaf children of Ghana and this guessed it, will return, but this time, in the same town!

Kelsey & johnny's wedding was such a beautiful fall wedding with red, yellow and brown as her colors. Even the trees outside matched perfectly!

As you can tell from this picture, Sunflowers were the main flower of the wedding which was adorable. They even tied mini sunflowers on all the sashes which was such a great way to add a pop to all the chairs!

I LOVE this combo of lanterns and Poms. They feel so modern and fresh and were such a great way to add a splash of wedding colors to the middle of the room.

We decided to also hang poms from the cake arch which, combined with this cute mini brownie diplay (instead of cake), really had a unique and fun look!

I can't say enough good things about the Florals which were done by Stacie Hardy with LaBelle Fleur! She never ceases to amaze us with all her uniqiue designs and her vision is truly magnificent!

Kelsey and Johnny are now both freelance interpreters for the Deaf, will finish at UVU in 2012 and head off to graduate school where Johnny plans to earn a masters degree in Occupational Therapy. They are such an incredible and inspiring couple to me and I wish them all the HAPPINESS in the world as they begin their new lives together!
