Lucky in love, Kayla and Gunter became husband and wife on St. Patrick’s Day. It was quite the party, like all St. Patrick’s Days should be. Like marriage, however, it was so much more than that. Kayla and Gunter’s wedding day reflected them and their love at every turn. It was so fun to see them get married and celebrate with all their favorite people.
There are many things about Kayla and Gunter that struck me when I met them. They are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. They are silly and easy to be around and they really are so much fun when they are together. The one thing that really hit me though was they have this deep and effortless love. You can see it when they steal a glance at each other while you are talking to them. You can see it when they hug and breathe in. You can feel it when they hold hands and get lost in their own world. And of course you can hear it when they talk about the other. As soon as I met them I could see their joy radiating and I was so excited to be a part of their wedding.
When the day came it was everything I imagined. Kayla was calm and sweet and ready to marry Gunter. She had been ready for a long time as this was their lucky number 7th year together. To the day, they met 7 years ago on St. Patricks day. Gunter and his boys were having a blast catching up and sending their best friend off into an awesome marriage. They had all sorts of adorable touches that spoke to them and their relationship. They guys had their favorite hockey teams as their cufflinks. The girls had monogrammed shirts and Kayla a perfectly green robe. She made her awesome Dallas Stars high heels and rocked her Colorado Avalanche garter. Can you see a theme? The two of them love Hockey and incorporated throughout the day.
This wasn’t the only thing that made the day fun, though the hockey stick entrance was pretty incredible. One of my favorite parts of the day was when they were pronounced as man and wife and everyone “sent” them off with paper airplanes flying around them. It was so original and cute. I loved the idea. It was just another clever thing that made their wedding so interesting. I have always said the reason I love weddings is the story and the people. Kayla and Gunter were the epitome of this. I loved getting to know them over the last couple months and to see them get married. They are so meant to be together and I feel so happy that I got to celebrate with them.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Ainsworth! You don’t need luck when you have a love like yours.
Thanks to all the awesome vendors:
