There are so many many reasons why this wedding was so special to me.
Traveling from California to Virginia to photograph such magical wedding was out of this world. A once in a lifetime opportunity. Never in my wildest dreams have I ever imagined that I would have been giving the opportunity to photo such a fairy tale.
Having been the one to photograph my long time friend Kayti was a dream come true, like she kept saying…”This is totally fate!!!!” We met, Oh I’ll say about 15 years ago, back when LiveJournal was the thing to do. We connected by our common love of Art. We share and traded Fantasy art…a few fairies and mermaids later..here we are, we finally met in person. For me, meeting her after so many years, was the icing on the cake!
The Airlie Center in Warrenton Virginia was so perfect for this whimsical vision, it’s gorgeous property provided and made the bride’s dreams come true.
Kayti is such an amazing artist, her touch of creativity was seen all over the details, from the wedding invitations to the party favors. She made this DIY wedding a true fairytale.
If my comments here does not convince you on how awesome she is..Take a look here. She is the brilliant creator and master mind of 78 Tarot Project https://www.78tarot.cards/
