Our Wedding

You are coridially invited to:
The Wedding of Chad P. Kelley and Yvette Maldonado  :)

November 14, 2009 at 2:30pm
Ceremony - Mary Immaculate, Farmers Branch
Reception - Eisemann Center, Richardson, TX

I never really knew what I would REALLY feel on our wedding day.  Nerves?  Anticipation?  Disbelief that this day had finally arrived after waiting so long for my knight in shining armour?  As the hour approached on that day, November 14th, 2009...standing in that church dressing room waiting for my time to head to the alter...all I remember was this overwhelming sense of CALM.  No butterflies doing funny things in my stomach, no worries, no racing heartbeats...not even nerves of being the one everyone would be looking at as I walked to meet my groom.  (I'm not one to draw attention to myself, if I can help it at all)

I was completely and utterly READY for this.  This was the man I was meant to be with.  My best friend.  My soul mate.  My everything.  As cheese as that may sound, he was the symbol of every cheesy romantic cliche you'd ever heard about and I was about to begin the first day of the rest of my life.  (all together now... AWWWWWWWWW....) ;)  It. Was. Perfect.

Instead of Grooms Cake we had... ICE CREAM!

***  All the amazing photos taken on this day were by our awesome wedding photographer Jim Miller of Jimmages.  Him and his sweet wife Jacki made picking out our wedding photographers a breeze.  We were sold from our first meeting with them, we just wish Jacki could've been there to celebrate with us (she was sick the day we got married.)  Everything came out beautifully and we're estactic to have such beautiful memories captured so wonderfully!  :) 

***  And our wedding couldn't have gone as smoothly as it did if it wasn't for the undercover, ninja like coordinating from our ALWAYS fabulous wedding planner, Rachel Leuck of Rachel Events.  Going off without a hitch, Rachel was there to make our special day go as seamlessly as possible.  If there were any issues, we had no idea... This wedding was truly like a well oiled machine!!  Thanks for the love and constant support throughout the entire process Rachel, we seriously couldn't have done it without you!
