Our love is unconditional…we knew it from the start. I can see it in your eyes…you can feel in from my heart. From here on after, let’s stay the way we are right now…and share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow. ~ George Strait
Kendra Lowery Turner and James Richard (Chad) Hett of Albany, GA., were married on Friday afternoon, April 22, 2011, at 6pm under the 300 year old Cedar Tree in the beautiful oceanfront Neptune Park on St. Simons Island, Georgia. I officiated the double ring ceremony before a small group of close friends and relatives just as the sun was setting in the west.
Kendra was so pretty in her floor length wedding gown of cream ivory chiffon. Beautiful chiffon blossoms softly cascaded her shoulder on a trendy one-shoulder floral detail. The subtle neckline and empire waist gave the soft A-line silhouette gown a clean and sophisticated design. She carried a beautiful, bright and colorful bouquet of seasonal flowers consisting of lilies, daffodils, and cymbidium orchids.
Kendra’s Matron of Honor was her sister in law, Sandy Lowery. Sandy wore a bright teal short dress with empire waist and carried a small seasonal flower bouquet which matched her dress.
The flower girl was the groom’s daughter, Emery Hett. She wore a cream ivory knee length satin dress with pearls on the bodice. In her hair was a halo of flowers and ribbon adorning her beautiful blonde curly pony tail.
Chad, the groom, and Marshall Lowery, the best man, both wore khaki shorts and a white button down polo shirt…just perfect for a beach wedding. Their boutonnieres were a white cymbidium orchid.
The weather was perfect for an island wedding and when the clock struck 6pm, it was as though the day had been chosen right from a story book. Chad was his usual calm and laid back self while Kendra made sure everything was in order. Her father, Ken Lowery, gave her away to the man of her dreams and they held each other’s hands and gazed intently into each other’s eyes as they said their vows.
The sounds of the park with its tourist and sightseer’s suddenly became muffled and Kendra and Chad were pronounced husband and wife together.
So beautiful…so romantic…so perfect for two people in love.
And if along the way we find a day, it starts to storm…you’ve got the promise of my love to keep you warm.~ George Strait
