No matter what you celebrate this time of year, it’s all about love. So, we thought there’d be no better way to celebrate that (and the upcoming Christmas holiday) than with a bride and groom whose story warmed our hearts.
Kelly and Corey have known each other since the third grade (the third grade!). That’s pretty special, so it’s no wonder their fall wedding day was, too. Of course, it helps that Kelly just happens to be in the wedding industry – she works part-time at the amazing Wedding Wonderland, where she chose her custom Odette wedding dress.
So, if you’re in for a goosies-worthy love story (and who isn’t!?), read all about Kelly and Corey from our wonderful bride below:
“I’ve been dreaming of this day since I was in third grade. Not necessarily the wedding day, but the day I would marry my elementary school ‘sweetheart’ and begin our forever. Corey and I have been ‘in love’ (quotations because that term was used VERY loosely) on-and-off ever since we met in third grade, at the age of eight. When I was a little girl, I would make my imaginary school students call me ‘Mrs. Wolfenbarger’ (Corey’s last name), and I grew up telling my friends I was never getting married…unless, of course, Corey asked me. Did I ever realistically think it would happen? No way. So to say our wedding day was a dream come true is an understatement!
I’ve always wanted a fall wedding, and I work at the wedding venue we chose to get married at, so we were able to plan pretty quickly. Both of us are very creative people, plus I work in the wedding industry and see the same things over and over, so I definitely wanted our day to be unique and reflect our personalities. Our day was filled with all sorts of handmade goodies, from our watercolor invitations to a dessert bar with pies and cakes made by family and friends to my custom wedding dress made by Lea-Ann Belter! It was the best day, and I wouldn’t change a thing!”
We’re so thrilled and honored to have been a part of your dream come true, Kelly! Best wishes and warm holiday wishes to you all!
