Hi there! Welcome to the KLP Blog, a journal about all the things that I love about life. Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm kayla.

Arynn and Mitchell’s lakeside backyard wedding was all things magical, I pinky promise.

A lot is misunderstood about engineers. Despite their notorious right brain tendencies, they have hearts that match that tenacity. Their aptitude for mathematical calculations is only matched by their emotional IQ to know when some is right, it is right, and when it is way right, it’s special.

To each other, Arynn and Mitchell were extra special. They met as engineering students, following a similar path of study. Both insist that it was indeed love at first sight, and each knew that they had found their person in one another. The date they chose to be each other’s forever was not a random, arbitrary date. It was on this exact date twenty-eight and thirty-three years prior that both sets of their parents said I do, too.

Just as easy as choosing date was choosing the venue. It was in Grand Rapids at the home of Mitchell’s parents, Mary and Ken, that these two would say I do to their forever.  It was a beautiful dusk ceremony, illuminated by the soft sunset light that glinted off of Pokegama Lake and the delicate twinkle lights that draped from the trees. The ceremony was officiated by the instructor that brought these two together, and on each side stood the best of friends, siblings, and family as Arynn and Mitchell entered there next chapter of their love story, sealed with a kiss and a pinky promise. 

Their love story already includes some of the greatest details. The dynamic duo has recently purchased their first home; no doubt it will be filled with children of all nature (currently that includes the sweet fur baby named Bexley). 

Congratulations again, Arynn + Mitchell!! Thank you so much for letting me hang out with you! Best of luck to you and your future!!

As always, Shaw Florists outdoes themselves!
