Lucille and Kellen have a modern and personal Palm Harbor White Chapel wedding with tons of greenery, wine and family!
Having lots of things in common and probably running into each other a few times in high school, they officially hung out for the first time at a Mowgli’s concert while both attending the University of Missouri. Their first date represents them as a couple, spontaneous and fun loving, they went CLIFF DIVING! They are both really close with their families as well which is why they live in Florida now since Lucille’s parents and siblings live here. Not to forget, Lucille is named after her dad’s mom which is extremely important. We first connected on the name because of my love for Lucille Ball. They decided to have a Palm Harbor White Chapel wedding so that they could bring a modern edge to a church wedding.
Things I remember most about their wedding day:
Lucille’s beautiful Hayley Paige dress, the raw diamond in her engagement ring, the handmade map in their stationary, Kellen’s gift of home brewed beer for his groomsmen (so thoughtful!), their exchange of personal vows at sunset on the dock, their love for wine and how they chose bottles for decor, how close they are with their families and how INSANELY talented Lucille and her family are at dancing! WOW! Her parents say it comes from going to Catholic dances growing up.
Thank you to the following for making their day possible:
Her brother Brooks for doing videography, Lucille’s friend Amanda for helping with videography, Something Borrowed Blooms, Delectables Catering, Locale Market for the cake, Kevin Kramer DJ, Lucille’s cousin Sheila Cook and friend Jessica Dennis for helping coordinate.
I wish I had Luc’s confidence in talking to new people and and how outgoing she is. She’s a great communicator and expresses her feelings/emotions much better than I do. She makes lists and has her life together much better than I do.
\His laid-back nature. When Kellen is around, people feel calm. He’s level-headed, rational and calm, and he knows the perfect way to calm me down when I need it most.
Luc always writes me cards. I feel so loved when I read her words. She sent me cards while we were apart for a summer, and they made me feel so much better. She’s honestly the best card-giver ever. She also met me after work one day with pizza and we watched the sunset on the beach while eating pizza and drinking beer.
Kellen is really, really good with kids. He likes to pretend he doesn’t like kids that much, but he’s like a kid whisperer. Anytime we’re with kids, whether it be his nephew or my little cousins, they’re climbing all over him and begging him to play games with them. I even have a video of Kellen’s nephew crying and trying to suction to Kellen while he was trying to put him down.
Simply put: people. She loves helping people, telling people’s stories, and just loving on people. She was the RA for the only Social Justice dorm on campus the first year we were dating. She gets so excited about telling people’s stories. She wrote a story about adults with autism in Oklahoma, and her main source painted a picture for her. I love her passion and excitement she gets when she tells me about anything journalism, people, or social justice.
Kellen and I have made it our mission to make every day and adventure, but he deserves all the credit for making that happen. He makes going on late night walks an adventure. He makes our upcoming life plans an adventure. He makes BUDGETING an adventure. If this man can make budgeting an adventure, he can bring adventure to even the most boring person’s life.
So I can’t quite pick one single adventurous thing I’ve done with Kellen, but I’d say going through life with him is an adventure in and of itself, and marrying him will be the greatest adventure yet.
