Cooper Chapel Wedding | The Kelley’s

Is it weird to say that people can have things in common with buildings? Because between knowing just a small snippet of Danielle & Elliott’s story and reading the history of Cooper Memorial Chapel – they are both testaments of great faith. I cannot image a more appropriate place for the Kelley’s to begin their lives together. This Cooper Chapel wedding is one I will never forget.

Danielle and Elliott have a warmth about them that make you instantly relax in their presence. They share a joy for loving on people and expressing God’s goodness and grace. They expressed to me how important it was to them to get a photo with all of their guests and how much they were looking forward to thanking each guest individually for coming. The chapel was filled to the brim of people who were eager to celebrate their love, and I am so honored we were asked to be a part of it all.

I especially love how relaxed and intimate morning weddings feel. Rather than wait all day to see each other, Danielle and Elliott were able to spend nearly their entire wedding day together. The light at Cooper Chapel for a morning wedding is just beautiful and the smiles on the faces seemed to shine even brighter – but that also may just be the effect that the Kelley’s have on their surroundings.

Danielle and Elliott are in for a life full of joy, adventure, and abounding love. Cory and I are thankful to call them friends and are excited to see what they accomplish together.
