River Uplands Farm Wedding in Millboro, VA
Kellee and Randy joined their families together in a beautiful ceremony at River Uplands Farm. But when you hear the couple’s story, their families had already been intertwined meaningfully for more than a decade! The couple’s wedding day in Millboro, Virginia (about 30 minutes from Hot Springs + Lexington, VA) beautifully made that union official.
Their family is top priority for this sweet couple. The details of their entire day were centered around so many ways they could involve their family. Kellee wore her mother’s veil, her grandmother’s pearl earrings and the ring bearer’s pillow was from Randy’s parents’ wedding. The 5 ring bearers and 2 flower girls were their nephews and nieces, and Kellee’s aunt Gail made the 5-tiered wedding cake. Their stunning wedding bands were handmade by Kellee’s Dad, Dennis.
The sentimental details didn’t stop there. Sitting on a table tucked away by the DJ stand was the ball glove that started it all. When Randy was a little boy, Kellee’s dad was his coach. He saw potential for Randy to be the team’s catcher and gave him the glove he’d need for the new position. Now that catcher’s mitt is being saved for if Randy and Kellee have a little slugger one day.
It’s only fitting that Kellee and Randy had started dating after a chance encounter at a baseball game! Kellee and her mom were there to watch her nephew play, and Randy was there with his mom watching his brother play. The two moms stopped to chat after the game, and Randy ended up asking Kellee out!
Over the weekend, so many stories were shared about how Kellee and Randy shared not just a love for their families, but also a very similar upbringing. This particular story was my favorite. The couple’s moms shared the moment they realized just how much the two families had in common. Kellee and Randy purchased a house and started moving their furniture into it. That’s when they realized that some of the living room furniture that Randy had grown up with was the exact same as pieces from her family that Kellee was moving into the house. They had a good laugh over the identical end tables, lamps, etc.
Congratulations to the happy couple, and best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together! It was an honor to be part of y’all’s big day!
