Kayla Locklear + Richard Ward
Photographer: Samantha Floyd Photography
Wedding Coordinator: Bailey Grinde, Pinehurst Resort
Like most kids in a small town, Kayla and Richard grew up in the same circles — but it would take years before the two realized they were soulmates. Richard made up for lost time by getting down on one knee during his own college graduation party, when both were surrounded by family and friends.
Kayla recovered quickly enough not only to say yes, but to plan the couple’s dream wedding at The Carolina Hotel in 10 short months. From the contemporary styling to the custom painting of their first dance, Kayla wouldn’t change a thing.
