Wedding: Kayla and Cody’s Shenanigans

wedding shenanigans at st john's lutheran church

This is one bride whose wedding I was very much looking forward to because we have known each other for over 15 years.  As a dancer, she was precocious and full of life.  And as a dance instructor, she keeps the happy in the dance.

Starting at the beautiful McFarland House in Martinsburg, WV, the wedding preparation was done in their now infamous “bride room.”  Lots of laughter and plenty of smiles, along with those awkward moments that are only shared by sisters and best friends when trying to make sure that the clothing “fits.”  We took a few photos in there, and elsewhere within the McFarland House.

A short trolley ride, courtesy of our friends at Detailed Destinations, and the ceremony was on at the eras-old St. John’s Lutheran Church.  After a few more photos there, we headed back to the McFarland House, but this time the bride and groom rode back via horse and buggy.

Then the real party began!

The happy couple spent the day enjoying their family and friends, the wonderful food and the delicious cake.  There was plenty more shenanigans (see the cake pictures), and lots more laughter.  It was my idea of the “perfect wedding.”

Congratulations to Kayla and Cody.  It was a lovely wedding.  And only a couple of weeks after this lovely wedding, we did a Trash the Dress session the very dress she wore to her wedding.
