One of my favorite things about Kayla and Garrett are their larger-than-life personalities…and love for each other. When I met Kayla I knew this wedding would be exciting simply because of her big ideas and level of detail. I also learned Garrett’s nickname was “Pink” and he would be surprising everyone with a pink suit…of his own choosing! I love how they compliment and shine the spotlight on each other.
This wedding day was a little different than others with Kayla not feeling the best, but it really makes me happy when a wedding day is reflective of the marriage it is starting. Garrett was attentive, kind, and thoughtful when it came to Kayla and her needs. They were surrounded with friends and family that were willing to support them and lift them up.
And even when the scenario wasn’t ideal, everyone still had a blast with each other celebrating the new Kings.
It was a day filled with thoughtful details from Kayla, including custom gifts for the bridal party and a bowtie for Garrett with photos of his angels, and dances and toasts honoring their late fathers. (I also loved the cute touch of having the littles walk down the aisle to “Just can’t wait to be king!”)
Kayla and Garrett, it was such a joy to watch the two of you and I know you both will always bring the love and the party. Congratulations!!!
