What an incredible wedding event, filled with so much love, excitement and unique details - if you want to host an unforgettable wedding, it’s all about the details and unexpected elements- and you can take notes from Kelsey and James’ big day - because it was the definition of epic. 
Step into a world of pure enchantment as we embark on a captivating journey through the extraordinary real wedding of the one and only Kelsey Breisinger, the influential force behind the popular Instagram account @kelclight. Prepare to be whisked away to the stunning waterfront Powel Crosley Estate, a grand historic gem nestled in picturesque Sarasota, Florida. But hold onto your seats because this celebration is about to take you on a rollercoaster ride of incredible details and unexpected surprises!
Picture this: the sun begins its descent, casting a golden glow over the estate and the majestic Sarasota Bay as guests eagerly gather for the anticipated ceremony. And then, out of the blue, Kelsey herself makes a breathtaking appearance from the iconic second-story balcony! Talk about a showstopper moment that left jaws dropping and hearts skipping a beat. 
As the timeless melody of Michael Bublé's "Everything" serenaded the air, played on a violin, the bridesmaids and parents made their way down the aisle. The stage was set, and anticipation filled the air as Kelsey, accompanied by the soul-stirring sounds of Shania Twain's "You're Still the One," descended the grand staircase - a vision of elegance in her beautiful A-line gown. It had a whimsical oversized bow at the back, adding a touch of romance that left everyone breathless.
And oh, the veil! It took our breath away. Adorned with a tenderly embroidered lyric from the “You’re Still The One” song—"Look How Far We've Come, My Baby"—it was a sweet, sentimental touch that tugged at the heartstrings of everyone present.
But let's not forget the star of the show—Blu, their furry bundle of joy and faithful companion! Blu trotted down the aisle as the honorary ring bearer, making pit stops along the way to shower loved ones with wet kisses and wagging tails. It was a moment of pure joy and utter adorableness.
And just when you thought the surprises were over, enter the custom newspapers! As guests settled into the ceremony, they were treated to personalized programs that took the form of chic newspapers. These extraordinary keepsakes spilled their love story onto the pages, showcasing engagement photos, heartfelt well-wishes from loved ones, and a special section dedicated to honoring those who were dearly missed. What an incredible idea!!! 
As the ceremony concluded, the celebration gracefully transitioned into the reception, where sophistication and glamour reigned supreme. The cocktail hour was an explosion of joy and excitement as guests revelled in the ceremony space, capturing picture-perfect memories at every turn. Delectable passed hors d'oeuvres delighted taste buds, while espresso martinis brought a touch of indulgence to the evening. And who could resist a "Kardashian-style black and white photo booth? It was the perfect opportunity to strike a pose to create timeless memories to cherish.
Moving to the reception, where things really got pumped up, the atmosphere crackled with anticipation as guests gathered around the dance floor, eagerly awaiting the bridal party's grand entrance. And they made quite the entrance! To the infectious beat of Riley Green's "There Was This Girl," the bridal party strutted their stuff, tossing custom T-shirts and hats into the ecstatic crowd. It was a moment of sheer excitement and a true reflection of the couple's vibrant personalities and favorite things. But that was just the beginning.
As the cheers subsided, the spotlight shifted to Jamie and Kelsey, the epitome of love and togetherness. They stepped onto the dance floor, their hearts beating in perfect sync with the soul-stirring melodies of Luke Combs' "Better Together." At that moment, time stood still as they swayed and twirled, enveloped in the warmth of their shared love. 
Friends and family sang along, their voices blending into a chorus of joy and celebration. And with the sun bidding its farewell, painting the sky over Sarasota Bay with a breathtaking kaleidoscope of colors, their first dance became a magical memory.
But the party was far from over! The dance floor beckoned, and guests surrendered themselves to the rhythm of the night. Branded cigars and more espresso martinis added a touch of sophistication, while an Italian-style coffee cart ensured that caffeine enthusiasts stayed energized. And how could we forget the traditional Pittsburgh Cookie Table? Overflowing with homemade cookies from adoring family members and delectable mini Crumbl Cookies, it was a sweet tribute to family traditions and the joy of indulgence.
As the clock struck 11:30 pm, bringing an end to this unforgettable and epic wedding event, guests bid a reluctant farewell to the enchanting Powel Crosley Estate. But the celebration wasn’t over yet…guests and the newlyweds continued the party as they made their way to the Art Ovation Hotel, where the night unfolded into a kaleidoscope of laughter, love, and cherished moments.
Kelsey Breisinger's real wedding was a tapestry woven with love, elegance, and special surprises. It was a celebration that defied expectations and left an indelible mark on the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to be a part of it.
