Kendall and Justin were married in an afternoon ceremony at the Cathedral Basilica in St. Augustine that was made extra special because it was performed by Kendall’s uncle, a priest at the parish.

The couple and their guests returned to Ponte Vedra Inn & Club for their absolutely gorgeous reception, which featured a completely transformed ballroom with fabric along the walls and custom shades for the chandeliers. Everyone was also treated to a surprise visit from the famous pigs, Priscilla and Poppleton, at the end of the maid of honor’s speech.
