I've known Kelsey for nearly 15 years now (How is that possible?!), and since I met her, I knew that she was dreaming of her Disney wedding day! When she reached out to me just over two years ago to put a hold on my calendar as she planned her day, you can bet I said: Count me in!! (After picking my jaw up off of my keyboard, of course!) You see... I photographed Kelsey and her sweet sister Brittany so often at the start of my business! They were always down to try a new location with me, and at one point, Kelsey was even the model on the back of my business card! Now... her wedding day has come and gone, and it meant so much to me to be there as Kelsey married her very best friend in a place that means so much to her. Talk about a full-circle moment! I have to say... this wedding was definitely a bucket list destination, and pressing publish on this blog post feels so surreal! The fact that these two trusted me to photograph such a special day for them means more to me than I can even say... now, hop on over to the link in my profile to see more for their gorgeous Cinderella inspired Disney Wedding Day! 💕🏰✨ #happilyevergilbert #CKPCouple A special thank you for those that made Kelsey and Blaine's day so special: @DisneyWeddings @mgnyofficial @perfectskyproductions @theprincessbridaltx @hayleypaigeoccasions @onsitebeauty @eventsbyinbloom @perfectskyproductions @orlandoweddingdj

SO many more sweet sneaks to come, y'all! Catch a few more on my story for the next 24 hours!

You know it may be busy season when your morning before a wedding is spent at your computer! I usually try to take the time before a wedding as intentional personal time, but when you have so much pretty to get into the hands of your sweet clients, sometimes you just can't help yourself! If you need me for the rest of the day though, you can find me celebrating two sweet souls in our nation's capital! It is going to be a GORGEOUS day!
I started a new adventure bright and early this morning! I am so beyond excited to be teaching group fitness for @equinox! This morning I had my very first class at the beautiful and brand new Anthem Row, and if the energy in the room (before the sun even came up!!) is any indication for the fun that awaits, I'm READY! What a dream come true to be working with beautiful souls in such a beautiful place! I am feeling all sorts of grateful and excited for all that is to come 💕💪🏼 Thank you to the group fitness team for this incredible opportunity to learn, grow and to share something that I love so much with others! For my CKP friends... I've been hoping to incorporate sharing my love for exercise in my corner of Instagram for a while, and now, it’s finally happening! You can expect to see some more fitness fun in my stories and feed from here on out! 💕
Oh, I know y'all have been waiting patiently for this sneak peek! I've known Kelsey since the 6th grade, and since the day we met, I knew that she was dreaming of celebrating her wedding day at Disney. Well... somehow, that day has already come and gone, and to say it was incredible, magical and absolutely perfect would be a huge understatement. I'm sooo excited to share more from their day with you soon! Until then, head to my story for the next 24 hours for some more sneak peeks! #happilyevergilbert A special thank you to those that made Kelsey & Blaine's day so magical: @DisneyWeddings @mgnyofficial @perfectskyproductions @theprincessbridaltx @hayleypaigeoccasions @onsitebeauty @eventsbyinbloom @perfectskyproductions @orlandoweddingdj #CKPCouple

To my work wife, CKP October tour manager, “fake mom” to my wedding parties (if you know, you know) & the woman keeping my life together during such a wild week... thank you. Thank you for keeping me on schedule... for telling me when I’m being far too stressed about something that doesn’t need stressing... for planning the non-work part trip & making sure I’m taking time to have some fun... for helping make so much CKP magic happen this week & always... for searching high and low through the parks for food that I can eat with all my ridiculous allergies & so, so much more than I can say. I literally don’t know what I would do without you💕 We’re exhausted after a 15 hour wedding day yesterday, but so excited for a fun day at Magic Kingdom! After renewing our work wife vows at weddings nearly every weekend, we’re finally taking our honeymoon 😂🙌🏼 #ckpbehindthescenes
