Happy Wedding Wednesday loves!! I have a super special to share with you all. It’s extremely adorable and exactly my style. Laid-back, stylish, and very personal.
Kendra and Paul were married on December 6th, 2014 at Camp Kiwanis in Florida. Their outdoor wedding was a combo of rustic chic, DYI, and intimate. They also included so many awesome and creative details!
More about the wedding from Corner House Photography…
Kendra and Paul wed on December 6th at Camp Kiwanis. Tucked away in the Ocala National Park, Camp Kiwanis was the perfect outdoor venue for their DIY inspired wedding. From the moment you drove down the rocky road, signs handmade by Kendra pointed guests to the where the ceremony was being held. Kara, Kendra’s twin sister and maid of honor, and Kendra’s bridesmaids wore pastel floral dresses and brown leather cowboy boots. Kendra’s mom helped zip her up in her vintage inspired lace gown. The bride’s bouquet glittered with silver broaches on top of pastel lace and cotton material. It was the perfect delicate pairing to Paul’s fortified gun shell boutonniere.
The two have known one another since they were 12 years old and met in Church. It was love at first site for Paul when introduced during their youth group. Paul made Kendra feel welcomed and happy with his “smile that was so contagious.” They started off as best friends, tagging along to help ‘supervise’ Kara and her boyfriend Lee on their dates. After nine years of ups and downs, meeting others, and coming back to one another, they knew that there was no one else in the world that could make one another happier.
Paul proposed to Kendra the night of the second blood moon in April of this year. Right out of the notebook, Kendra and Paul were watching the sky as they waited on the moon on top of Kendra’s truck. Of course, being Florida the mosquitos didn’t help with the romance and while Kendra wanted to go back inside the truck, Paul would pull her close and ask her to stay. “After many mosquito bites and a few shooting stars, he got down on one knee in the middle of that field and asked me to be his wife and best friend forever.” And Kendra said yes.
Congrats to Kendra and Paul! A special thanks to the wonderfully talented Samantha Eckhaus for sharing this beauty with us!
