When a childhood pal gets hitched and you get to be a part of it, it’s magic.
I first met Kailey when we were 11 — when we also went to school with three of her bridesmaids and her amazing hair and makeup artist. It was so incredible to see her wed her longtime love Dillon with her girls — and pup — by her side!
Kailey and Dillon’s backyard tent wedding was held at her grandparents’ home in Cheltenham, not too far from where we grew up. It was an all-hands-on-deck affair; her family worked so hard to transform the spacious backyard with string lights, outdoor lounges, and even a shed bar!
One of the coolest things for me was that the bride and groom’s pooch, Ari, was a big part of the day as well. From walking down the aisle to see his mom and dad get married, to hanging out under the head table at the reception, Ari was definitely the runner-up for the star of the show.
And one thing I can say for sure is this wedding was one heck of a party! Everyone had so much fun dancing in the tent and enjoying the beautiful late-summer day outside (complete with bonfires!).
Congratulations Kailey and Dillon! What a beautiful day for a beautiful couple!
