Where to begin? With the burger eating and booty dancing that was going on in the bridal suite? Or with the most terrible luck I’ve ever had a bride have the week leading up to the ceremony? Let’s start with the couple: Kylie and Kerner.
Separately, these two are two of the biggest goofballs I’ve ever met. Now, a lot of times with sillies, two of them together is just too much. But when Kylie and Kerner are together, that’s not the case. There’s an ease and comfort about them, they both settle into each other, like when you plop onto your grandma’s comfy couch, or slipping on your favorite pair of jeans; everything just seems as it should be.
Even more a testament to who they are, I don’t think I’ve ever met so many family members. Not just because Kylie has a ginormous family, but because that’s just what they do. They love everyone, take them in, and bam, they’re family. The whole day, it was so obvious just how much they are loved in return.
I could talk a lot about the decor. There were beautiful things everywhere. From the tiniest details to the perfect venue. Their ceremony and reception were at the beautiful Majestic Oaks Ranch in Lake City. But honestly, the way they love each other overshadows all of it. While getting ready, I thought Kylie might break through the doors and make a run (well as fast as you can run on a broken toe) for it. Not from cold feet, just because she couldn’t wait to see Kerner. “I just want to see him because I love him!” she told everyone as she tried to catch glimpses of him through the bridal suite windows. And Kerner is no better. The way he looks at Kylie is nothing short of the way Noah looked at Allie in The Notebook. I say that, not as an exaggeration, but only because it’s the truth.
I love weddings. I love watching people being just completely smitten. And Kylie and Kerner were like an all you can eat buffet for my love appetite, I say in the most loving, not creepy like I wanted to eat them, kind of way lol.
Annnnyway, before I say anything weirder, let’s just get to the good stuff!
