Literally. As a flight attendant for Southwest, Kelcy was accustomed to seeing hundreds of passengers every day. But one October day, Jonathan boarded her plane and everything changed. “We talked the whole flight,” Kelcy says. “We both have a passion for travel and a love for the mountains, and we just hit it off.” At the end of the flight, Jonathan gave Kelcy his card and said, “If you ever want to go skiing, give me a call.” And the rest is history.

Ten Mile Station in Breckenridge, CO.
Kelcy and Jonathan had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the patio with the sun shining on the mountains in the background. Dinner was inside the station, and the dancing commenced in a white tent.
“We had beautiful bistro lighting that connected the tent to the building and these really cool paper lanterns hanging inside to light it up and create atmosphere. It was simple, and it was just what we wanted.”
“I’m from Texas and Jonathan is from the East coast, so our friends and family are all over the country,” Kelcy says. “That was by far the most special thing to us was having everyone we love there to celebrate. We felt so loved and supported.”
“Elite was our DJ/MC and we had a live band too. They played off of each other so well and kept the party going. It was perfect.”

“We both loved the toasts,” Kelcy says. “They were so funny and heartfelt, and it was really fun to hear what our friends and family had to say about us.” Even on their wedding day, Jonathan was full of romantic surprises. “There’s a line in our first dance song that says ‘I’m a man that brings you roses when you ain’t got none,’ and he had roses behind his back and got on one knee and gave them to me,” Kelcy says. “It was one of my favorite moments.”
“We just loved looking back through all our pictures,” Kelcy says. “There’s not a single photo where everyone isn’t smiling or dancing. People were having the best time and that meant so much to us.”
“The Photobooth was incredible,” Kelcy adds. “I’ve never seen anything like this before. The technology was amazing. It edited the photos instantly, and people could share them on social media. Everyone was just being goofy and silly and having so much fun.”
“Having a wedding planner was one of the best decisions I made,” said Kelcy. “At least have a coordinator for the day of so you don’t have to worry about anything.” The most important thing in Kelcy’s book is also the hardest for brides to do. “Enjoy the process,” she says. “Your wedding day goes by so quickly and it’s one of the most special days of your life. Don’t let it become a task. Enjoy every single moment along the way.”
