You know we go weak at the knees for a lovely military wedding, so when it happens to be a military wedding with a little sparkle? Count. Us. In. Kelley and Chris’ wedding in Virginia, captured by Evelyn Alas Photography, pairs military traditions with pageant girl glam. That’s right, folks. When the bride is a former pageant girl, you know there’s going to be plenty o’ sparkle to go around. And, you can see it all right here¦
Kelley’s wedding planning advice for other DC-area couples:
I always tell people to pick your colors after you pick your venues. You will be happier when everything matches. Plus you will spend less because you won’t have to over decorate.
