Kenisa and Ryan’s West Virginia backyard wedding took place just a few weeks ago on August 6th in Parksburg, WV. With many beautiful wedding wear details, the bride wore a vintage inspired wedding dress and birdcage veil. The wedding day ceremony was held in the bride’s countryside backyard surrounded with lush greenery, a pond, and winding paths. Their backyard West Virginia wedding was captured by photographer Olivia from Liv Hefner Photography. Olivia tells us more about these high school sweethearts, their wedding day music choices and some of the moments that made the day so special…
Olivia tells us, “Kenisa and Ryan had many special songs playing during their wedding day. “Marry You” by Bruno Mars accompanied Ryan while he waited for Kenisa at the end of the aisle. The father and bride walked down the aisle to the song “Marry Me” by Train. During the ceremony, the couple lit a Unity Candle which flickered out, but amazingly was relighted by itself by the end of the ceremony. One symbolic gesture during the wedding was the placing of a reserved chair in honor of the bride’s grandmother who passed away last year. Kenisa also honored her grandmother by wrapping her pearls through her bouquet and carrying a necklace of hers.
Kenisa’s little brother, Nicholas, served as the ring bearer and even broke out some of his break-dancing moves at the reception with his big sister during their special dance to “Boom, Boom Pow.” The reception featured a three tiered red velvet cake by “Cakes by Kristen.” The bride and groom shared their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar and a father and daughter dance was set to “My Wish for You,” by the Rascal Flatts. The spectacular evening wrapped up with dancing and dinner provided by The Windmill Café.”
