Victor and Kenley's wedding at the Hidden Gardens Venue in Fort Worth, Tx was definitelt one for the books! Kenley had been telling me all her gorgeous plans for months and we were so excited to finally see her vision for her big day come to life! After meeting at the DFW Bridal Show, Kenley and her mom came in for a consultation and we had the best time! We knew then that this was going to be one of our favorite families and we were right!
High school sweetheart stories are always my favorite! Kenley was a Freshman and Victor was a Senior when they met, but it wasn't until after Victor graduated that their story began! Having mutual friends their relationship started off slow, but even with some separation while Kenley was in college, their love for each other rekindled and they haven't been apart since!!!
Now here's my favorite part... the proposal!!!! In March they went on a cruise to Mexico, Kenley's first and Victor made sure it would be one for her to remember! All his months of planning paid off when he took her to the highest deck, got down on one knee and presented her with her dream ring (that he picked out all by himself!) and of course she said "YES!"
Despite the bitter cold weather on their wedding day, both Kenley and Victor were constantly smiling and so excited! And the love and excitement from their families was even more so! Our day started with all the ladies getting their hair and makeup done, while all the decorations were being set up. We absolutely love the bridal suite at the Hidden Gardens! So much character and chandeliers everywhere!!!! Kenley and Victor had each written each other a note and after everyone was ready, we sat down for them to read them before we headed out for the first look! First looks are always my favorite. It's literally the only quiet time you get to be with each other on this day and it was so sweet to watch them look at each other with so much love and excitement before they say "I do". And then of course Dad had to come out and get me all teary-eyed!!! Then we braved the cold to get some gorgeous couples portraits before heading back in to get ready for the ceremony!
Every detail of the ceremony was absolutely perfect! We had plenty of blankets on hand for everyone to snuggle up while we watched Kenley and Victor tie the knot! And while Kenley looked absolutely radiant walking down the aisle, I think we can all agree that little Aida, as the flowergirl, stole the show at some times! Especially the part of the ceremony where she was invited up to be with her dad and Kenley, for them all to make a commitment to one another as their new family begins! Once again, tears were running down my face!
We ended the night with fabulous food, crazy dancing and sending the amazing couple out with sparklers to take off in the groom's most precious Mustang!!!
Kenley and Victor, no one deserves happiness more than you! I am so beyond happy to we got to be there to witness the next step in your adventure together! Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure gets better each and every day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness!!
