A big thank you to The Southeastern Bride for their beautiful feature of Kelly + Will's lakeside engagement!
I've always been a firm believer that it takes time to truly get to know someone. Love at first sight is a feeling; a recognition that someone is compatible and an impression that you can immediately put your trust in someone you just met. But, it doesn't give you any concrete idea of who they are as a person. That can only come with time.
Kelly and Will have been together for years, and knew each other before that. They can see each other to the core. My favorite part about them? That they can laugh together at the most trivial of things. A sense of humor, after all, is one of the key ingredients to any relationship long-term. These two can look at one another and truly understand each other -- sometimes there's silence, but most of the time there's a smile or a laugh that says it all.
Meet Kelly + Will -- she's vivacious and full of laughter; he is kind and collected. They balance each other perfectly and I so enjoyed my precious time with these two!
