I might be a wee bit OBSESSED with this wedding as Kelly and Tony are family!!! More than that, they are two the of kindest, smartest, and down to earth people I know. This past weekend, my brother-in-law married his best friend in a gorgeous Highgrove Estate wedding right outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. Kelly and Tony met while attending Elon University, quickly became friends, and started dating right before graduation. They mastered the long distance relationship thing as Kelly received her DPT from Duke and Tony traveled to California to pursue his PhD in Chemistry at Berkeley. Shortly after she graduated, Kelly joined Tony in California! These two are adventurers at heart and love spending their days playing tennis, going on runs, or cooking up something delicious in the kitchen. Speaking of delicious, Tony proposed to Kelly in Ghirardelli Square (yum!) and the planning for their southern celebration began.
