Kendra Timberlake’s and Sean Cantlon’s love for cars is what drove them together—physically and metaphorically. The two met in 2011 at a car meet-up at a Sonic restaurant. From that day, they grew as friends and eventually decided to officially be a couple. After a year of dating, Sean proposed. He planned a trip to Amelia Island to celebrate their one-year anniversary. After dinner, the couple walked and talked under the moon and stars—one of their favorite things to do at night. Sean got down on one knee and asked Kendra to marry him and as she said “yes,” a falling star flashed through the sky.
The couple didn’t have a large wedding party. The maid of honor was Kendra’s mother and the best man was Sean’s father. “We wanted the wedding to be more intimate, focused on us,” says Kendra. • Their love for autos was evident throughout the décor, with gold-painted toy cars incorporated in the centerpieces.
Sean was very nervous and anxious on the big day until his dad opened up his jacket, pulled out a flask and offered him a drink. • Sean wrote Kendra a letter before the wedding that brought tears to her eyes as she read it while getting ready.
