Welcome to the KSP blog, a place where I share my work, wisdom, and a peek into my everyday life. I'm so glad you're here and hope you stay awhile!

Hi! I'm Kyla.

Megan and Sam’s winter wedding at Willowdale Estate was the most incredible way to kick off 2024 weddings! They are the special kind of people who radiate joy and warmth. Megan was quite literally glowing from the inside out during their entire day. It was truly a reflection of her loving and compassionate heart. The way Sam looks at her is absolutely precious. It is a beautiful demonstration of how much he cherishes her and the life they are building together.

New England is filled with beautiful venues and countless places to get married. But Willowdale Estate stands out as one of the *most* special of them all. It is the first venue I ever visited at the start of my career in weddings. Ever since, it is a perennial favorite that continues to loom large in my heart. Nestled in the woods of Bradley Palmer State Park, it’s a storied place filled with history and charming detail. And their team cannot be beat when it comes to care, attention to detail, warmth, and collaboration.

It is no coincidence that Megan and Sam, one of our most intentional couples of all time, chose such a special place to begin their married adventure together. Together, they filled the space with light and love and a touch of sparkle. It was made all the more beautiful by their precious family and friends who filled the space for the evening. We had the best time celebrating these two and capturing their joy. I hope you enjoy this special peek into such a sweet day!

To Megan & Sam:

You two are so special to us and we’re incredibly thankful that God saw fit for our paths to cross! It has been an honor and joy to serve you both through this sweet season. Your wedding day is one that we will always remember! We are cheering you both on SO big and praying hard for your marriage. I hope these images forever serve as the sweetest reminder of the day when your lives merged into one beautiful one held by the One who continues to write your love story!
