Kellyn and Jon’s story is a tale of two Nittany Lions. The couple met at Penn State when they were both in the Masters of Accounting Program. They both started their accounting careers in Pittsburg before moving to Charlotte in May of 2016.
After five years of dating, Jon finally popped the big question at Romare Bearden Park. They were walking around uptown, when Jon stopped in front of the water fountain and got down on one knee. After Kellyn said yes, her three best friends came around the corner and surprised her. They all celebrated the big engagement that night in uptown Charlotte. Kellyn has said that she knows Jon is her soulmate because he is her best friend and has always been very supportive of her.
On September 2nd, 2017, the pair headed back up to Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania for the big day. They had their first dance as husband and wife to Kip Moore’s “Hey Pretty Girl”. Kellyn wore Maggie Sottero’s timeless “Winstyn” gown. This sweetheart fit and flare gown featured a dreamy lace and tulle combination that effortlessly dripped down the train. Kellyn chose to go with the light gold version of this gown, which added a touch of vintage romance and drama. She paired a hand beaded crystal Kitty Chen belt and scalloped lace veil for the perfect icing on the cake.
As for her favorite aspect of the wedding day, Kellyn said it was listening to Jon read the vows he wrote. Of course, she loved celebrating their marriage surrounded by friends and family at the reception as well. One unique detail that the couple tied into the big day was having the Penn State Nittany Lion mascot show up at the reception. He greeted the guests during cocktail hour, and was present for pictures as well.
Kellyn, you looked absolutely stunning! We are so happy to of been a part of the big day. It is a pleasure sharing your story!!
