Bryce Harper is enjoying a blissful married life with Kayla Varner. Let's get more details of their beautiful wedding, multiple engagements, as well as the similar passions of this adorable duo.
Bryce Harper's Married Life
Bryce Harper is married to the beautiful Kayla Varner. They tied the knot on 17th December 2016, at the San Diego Mormon Temple. Their family and friends made sure the night was memorable as they partied all night at San Diego's iconic Polo fields.
Speaking to The Knot News in 2017, Kayla said:
"We made a grand entrance at the reception and then, we had a quick ring ceremony… We did it in the middle of the dance floor surrounded by our bridal party and all of our family and friends."
"My grandpa explained what we did in the temple, and then, we actually had our videographer do a same-day edit. So he kind of gave a little video of us at the temple so people could get a little piece of that too."
In fact, the couple wanted to make sure everybody would fit inside, so they paid to have a huge barn on the property.
At the wedding, Kayla wore a white gown which was designed by Penelope Perkins, while Bryce opted for a classic suit made by Stitched. Moreover, impressively Harper's wedding day jacket was lined with photos of his bride.
Meanwhile, the cake was not ordinary either. They got a donut cake from VG Donut and Bakery.
Earlier, Harper and Varner were initially engaged and planning to get married in January 2015, but the two did not take their wedding vows at the time.
Rumors back then suggested the couple split for a few months. Kayla disappeared from Harper's social media posts for some time which made the public think the duo had parted ways.
However, in July 2016, the pair was spotted together at the ESPYs. Their second engagement announcement arrived in July 2016 through Instagram.
A few days later Kayla took to Instagram once again, but this time to display her engagement ring.
The couple later spent months planning for their big day but they couldn't control the weather. The entire ceremony was beautiful except it rained that day and they decided to embrace the mother nature.
