Kendra and Neal's
reception décor was a true marriage of Neal's Indian traditions and Kendra's southern flair. Kendra carried over the hummingbird theme by creating origami hummingbirds out of vintage Reader's Digest pages that the couple included at every place settings. Kendra recruited Amy from Bride and Bloom Flowers
to help her create the perfect centerpieces. They used vases and jars from thrift shops and spray painted them white to give them the white milk glass jar look that Kendra loved. To keep the originality going, Kendra used vintage Encyclopedia of Science's that she had been collecting and used the pages in them as place mats because she loved the illustrations on them! Kendra was also able to find a way to make sure her late grandmother's spirit was still with her on her wedding day.
"The thought of my grandmother not physically being at the wedding was very sad, so I wanted to make sure that we honored her in some special way. She was known for her amazing southern cooking. Each guest was gifted jars of her candied pecans and her bread and butter pickles. My husband made most of these on his own for me, he's such a trooper!"
Thank you so much to Kendra for sharing her and Neal's special day with us. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and touching, and we wish you guys nothing but the best of wishes!
