Kandy & Kevin are career Marines. After serving months apart on different continents, imagine arriving in Texas the week before the wedding. Planner Lauren Kelly provided inspiration & coordination during several months of Waco-to-Senegal email & telephone planning. The dress was purchased off the rack at Joanne’s Bridal a week before the event. Lyncca Harvey scheduled a bridal portrait afternoon on the Monday prior (hair by Phillip Sanchez/Salon Wabi Sabi, makeup by Sandra Shapiro. These were but a few tasks crammed into a week filled with many family and starting-life details.
Kandy was raised in Dawson, TX. Kevin’s home state is Maine, but he and his family love heat – good thing because their wedding day was hot and humid! The shades of red, white and blue color palette blended beautifully with Kevin’s dress blues. Kandy’s aunt baked the delicious cakes. Bestyett Catering provided a sampling of foods from the many countries the bride and groom have travelled while serving our country, & Diamond Productions kept guests dancing throughout the evening. Attached are Lyncca Harvey’s composites of their celebration day; this group enjoyed lots of laughing, silliness and pure joy to be able celebrate their special day with friends and family.
