Wedding Wednesday: The Boyd Wedding

The Boyd Wedding | October 8, 2016 | Photography by: Anna Bowser Photography

Marlea and Jarred first met in high school; she says he was mean to her, but Jarred insists it was only because he liked her so much. After starting college, they eventually began dating. Six years later, Marlea went out to Colorado to see Jarred after he finished his clinicals. They traveled across several states together, eventually ending up in Kentucky for July 4th. Marlea and Jarred watched the best fireworks show she'd ever seen, and it was there Jarred asked her to be his wife.

Because their wedding day would be filled with a large, diverse group of family and friends, Marlea and Jarred knew it was important for everyone to have fun and feel included. Their theme of love and family capitalized on their wishes. Despite rain moving their ceremony indoors, they took it all in stride, placing their gorgeous arbor on the venue's stage. Guests stayed busy with good food, fun music and a photo booth, in addition to a dessert bar made up of Marlea's grandmother's special treats like mini cheesecakes, baklava and lemon bars, to name a few. The bridal party did a lip sync battle as well, surprising guests in the best way. Marlea says her favorite wedding day memory is during the reception, when a dance line formed to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." The conga line formed throughout the venue, filled with family and friends. She says it was an amazing moment that connected everyone to feel important and loved, and the dance line did just that. The couple ended the night with a spectacular downtown exit.
