When Jonathan proposed to Kayla, he whipped up a home-cooked dinner and placed an antique tin water pitcher full of blue hydrangeas—Kayla's favorite—beside an old leather picture frame containing a photo of the words "Will you be my wife?" at the center of the dinner table. This inspired the look and feel of their August affair: "We wanted the wedding to have an antique feel, filled with family tradition," says Kayla. The day featured a color scheme of soft blues, greens and creams and, of course, tons of hydrangeas.

The ceremony was held at half past six in the evening under the gazebo in Genevieve’s Garden at Brook Lodge in Augusta. The event was a family affair: Jonathan’s father, a pastor, conducted the ceremony while Kayla's grandmother read some meaningful scripture. One of Kayla’s close friends sang “For the Beauty of the Earth,” a favorite hymn.
