Justin and Kayla met in 2011 in Salisbury, where Kayla was attending college, at a favorite local bar. In 2018, the two got engaged during a hike.
The couple married just shortly after their ten-year anniversary at Dulany’s Overlook in Walkersville in October 2021. “It was the first and last venue we looked at. We fell in love with it and knew we wanted our dog involved so it had to be an outdoor wedding. We were supposed to get married in 2020 but had to postpone it due to Covid.”
150 guests, including an 11-person wedding party, helped them celebrate their fall nuptials. “We picked some of our favorite music to walk out to. We also incorporated our dog who is basically our child.”
Kayla and Justin leaned into the fall season and chose burnt orange and maroon colors for their laid-back wedding decor. “We served late-night pretzels and dips and also had a yummy interactive pasta station during cocktail hour.”
Kayla works for Humane Society International and Justin works at Volvo Silver Spring. They currently reside in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
