Kelly and Ray are the best kind of people. Period. Fun loving, carefree, up for absolutely anything and full of smiles, they made their wedding an absolute show stopper. Every hour of the day had a new fun surprise: from the personalized pocket watches all the groomsmen had to dancing to Don't Stop Believing as their send-off song, this was a party through and through and I'm so incredibly lucky to have a front-row seat on days like this.

I love my job because people have to laugh at my jokes because I'm the one with the camera.

Remember when I mentioned Don't Stop Believing? It went something like this and it was amazing:
