Hayley & Kendall’s Wedding at Koru Berry Farm in Homestead, IA

“From the planning tools to the wedding timelines, we knew we were in good hands. We had SEVERAL wedding party members comment that this was the most well-organized wedding they’d been in. And most importantly to us, we both felt relaxed throughout the day. We enjoyed every second of our wedding thanks to your incredible logistics and behind-the-scenes magic.” – Hayley, bride


They Met at a Wedding

This lovely couple met during a wedding between their mutual friends. Hayley caught Kendall’s eye at the reception bar. They had so much fun chatting and dancing that evening. The two began dating soon after but it was long-distance because they lived in different parts of the midwest. After a year long distance dating Kendall moved to Chicago to be with Hayley.

Falling In Love

Soon after moving to Chicago, Kendall knew he had found the one. He admired how independent Hayley was, and how she had worked hard to make a life for herself in a place that was very different than the small towns they had grown up in. Hayley loves traveling, and knew Kendall was the one when they took their first trip together. After going to Albuquerque for a long weekend to do some hiking and sightseeing, she realized she had found her ideal travel partner who felt like a true other half.

An Autumn Beach Proposal

Kendall surprised Hayley with a weekend trip to Milwaukee in October 2020. He proposed on the beach of Lake Michigan with the beautiful fall foliage in the background. Their sweet dog, Ralphie, was the sole witness. It was so sweet & intimate, and suited to the two of them in every way. She said yes!

I Do

The couple reached out to Soirée because it was overwhelming trying to plan a wedding from afar. They had sent out their Save the Dates, booked the venue, but not much else. Hayley and Kendall chose The Assistant Package and we were delighted to jump in. We helped keep everything organized and running smoothly to allow the couple time to be present, mingle and see their guests as much as possible. It was a beautiful day that they will be able to reflect upon and cherish forever.

Thank you and congratulations to Hayley and Kendall from all of us at Soirée!
