Kelly and Jarad met by chance during college although they lived miles apart. Jarad was playing football at Florida Atlantic University while Kelly was up in Tallahassee at Florida State University. They would see each other every so often while visiting mutual friends in Orlando. It wasn’t until 4 years later that something clicked and their friendship soon changed into something more. They both relocated to Orlando so they could be closer to each other and now they are the parents to some cute little kitty children.
Jared wasn’t thrilled about doing a first look and seeing Kelly before the ceremony but with their wedding at sunset Kelly really wanted to have photos in the daylight before the ceremony. She surprised him with two different styles to her wedding dress. When he saw her at the first look she had on a flowing shirt over her straight, fitted gown. Before the ceremony she removed the shirt and walked down the aisle looking totally different! It was several minutes into the ceremony when you could hear Jarad over the microphone say “you are wearing a different dress!” It was too funny!
Since we took care of all the family and the huge wedding party photos (25 people in the wedding party!) before the ceremony we were able to hop on the golf cart with just the two of them after the ceremony and wisk them away for some fun sunset photos. Their reception was held in the grand ballroom with the always amazing Leonard Brothers Band. The dance floor was never empty for the rest of the night! And being that Kelly and Jarad love sports they chose to go skiing in Whistler Canada for their honeymoon. Hopefully Kelly might let Jarad win a few times as they come down the mountain!
