Looking Back...with The Hendersons

This year I'm looking back over ten years as The Bridal Garden and re-visiting some of my favorite couples to see where they are now. Of course, one of my favorite brides, and first weddings to do, was for

my twin sister, Jeni!

Jeni (Young) and Dennis Henderson met through a mutual friend and went on a blind date...a scary thought! Frightening as a blind date might be, they were lucky - after only a few dates, they knew they were meant for each other. Jeni was attending USAO in Chickasaw at the time and it was a long commute each weekend to Tulsa, where Dennis lived and still works for the Salvation Army. But the trip was worth it!
After a few years of dating, Jeni and Dennis were married on June 6, 2002 at Tarp Chapel in Broken Arrow. Jeni's colors were shades of purples and her florals included purple roses, hydrangea, asparagus fern and had a garden feel. Purple linens with sheer florals topped the tables. After the wedding, they honeymooned in sunny Barbados.
After getting married they adopted their first "child" - a golden retriever named Brinkley. Three years later, in 2003, Bryce was born (Jeni went into labor just as her baby shower was about to begin!). Three years later, in 2006, Ben followed his big brother into the world. Keeping with the pattern of 3's and B's, three more years passed and sweet baby Baylea joined the Henderson family. Jeni was thrilled to have a girl and decided they were through having babies!

Ten years later the Hendersons are still going strong. Jeni is an award-winning National Board certified art teacher. Dennis continues his good works helping others at the Salvation Army. The boys are active in football, t-ball, and basketball and Jeni can't wait until Baylea is old enough to participate in dance and cheerleading. Now, they are all living...
happily ever after!
