Genny and Kilee are right for each other. I’m not going to say “meant for each other”, because “right” is just too appropriate. They love obscure musicals, Halloween stores, antiquing, animals, dancing, cooking, singing, and rollercoasters. It was actually on both their lists of things they wanted to find in a partner before meeting each other. Rollercoasters and musicals were their deal-breakers.
Their awesome dogs Wallaby and Atticus were so sweet and well behaved, and even wore outfits for their job as ring bearers!
Their friend Kaytie Hensley of White Willow Creations made Genny’s tie. Special touches like this make everything better.
Genny found all of the driftwood and carved their initials in them for the centerpieces. She described how they wanted their wedding to be as “Vintage/Rustic/Old timey/weird”. When I see “weird”, I know some good stuff lies ahead!
The emotional and beautiful ceremony was under tall trees in a grove below the Union Hotel.
One of the best elements of the wedding was the music! They played movie theme music before and after the ceremony and everyone got to play trivia throughout the day to guess the songs- which isn’t easy when there is absolutely no wifi. After the first kiss, they walked out to the Indiana Jones theme (insert heart eyes emoji here)!
The second half of the first dance was the Dirty Dancing choreography and they KILLED IT. At the end, friends and family jumped in and did the flash mob style dance from the movie. I cannot tell you how happy this made me.
Kilee is a beautiful singer and performed “I’m gonna love you” to Genny.
The toasts were meaningful and heartfelt,
and Kilee’s family performed a skit (a Cooper family tradition) of their love story to the theme of The Wizard of Oz. It was AWESOME.
The night went on just as they wanted it to- dancing until people pass out.
Genny and Kilee, it was an honor to be part of your day and to experience something really special.
