Kelly and Damian live in Chicago but elected Wheeling, West Virginia as their destination wedding location.  They chose Wheeling because Kelly’s grandmother lives here, and Kelly didn’t want to take a chance of her not being part of the day.  Mrs. Carenbauer is her last living grandparent.  At the rehearsal, Kelly’s mother Anne reminded me that my grandmother had been her kindergarten teacher many years ago.  Not only that, Anne decided to become a teacher because of my grandmother.  Amazing to hear how the women who play such significance in our lives have also touched the lives of others.

Sandscrest was a beautiful location for the wedding with Sarah Lydick providing true hospitality and gourmet meals.  She comes from the French Laundry!  Fingers crossed that I can organize a photography retreat at this same location 2015.

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was the dancing at the reception.  It both terrified and impressed me with its daredevil wizardry and ballet grace.

Hope you’ll enjoy!

Wedding Coordinator:  Karen Nottingham, Fab Affairs
