Coral Country Wedding Photos – Crystal Springs | Shelly & Brandon

May 25, 2012 4 Comments


Crystal Springs has never looked so good!  I’ve shot a couple weddings (and check out this one too) at this venue and I have to say, Shelly & Brandon dressed this place to the nines!  Every direction you turned there were personalized & rustic elements from lanterns lining the staircases, wooden wagon wheels flanking the stage, custom printed koozies, and more “S”s and “B”s than I could count on my fingers and toes!


Let me start by re-introducting Shelly & Brandon to you.  You might remember them from their engagement session earlier this year.  They had an extremely memorable proposal story!

Over the last 7 months, I’ve had the extreme pleasure of getting to know Shelly & Brandon (and Daisy & Bubba) as well as their family and friends.  During Shelly’s bridal session, Anna and I got to know the Barrett family even more.  My cheeks were sore from laughing and smiling so much! We talked all about her wedding plans, the huge guest list and she even spilled some of the details about her handmade decorations but I had no idea just how amazing the day would turn out to be.

The heart, soul, and amount of hot glue that was put into this wedding was amazing.

Shelly’s dress was awesome!  Not only was it a flowy and beautiful, and expressed her personality with it’s fun slit (to show off her boots), but it’s also convertible!  Wait for the reception photos to see the short dress option!

The royal treatment for one good looking group of gals!

How gorgeous are they!!!

The coral dresses, turquoise jewelry and fashionista cowgirl boots? Check, check and CHECK!

One of the other lovely ladies I had the pleasure of meeting was Brandon’s mom.  She’s such a delightful woman and her smile was so contagious!

Shelly and Brandon opted for a First Look (stay tuned to the blog for a post specific to the advantages of having a first look on your wedding day itinerary!)

Go for the gold! This was quite the rumble for the bouquet…

Such a great party with great people and plenty of love!


Shelly & Brandon: Thank you so much for including Motley Mélange in your absolutely amazing day!  I wish you both all the best and I hope you had the most memorable time in St. Lucia.  You guys are truly a blessing to each other and everyone around you.   Congratulations!

<3, Kori
