Mykell Daniel and Zachary Kidder were married October 24, 2020 in a 5:00 after-noon ceremony held at The Anderson Center with Rev. Gregory Daniel officiating. The bride’s grandfather, who she’s very close to, welcomed everyone. A reception followed at The Anderson Center.
The bride is the daughter of Gregory and Kelli Daniel of Florence. She is the granddaughter of Bobby and Judy Crosswhite and Margaret Daniel and the late Horace Daniel.
The groom is the son of Rodney and Ann Kidder of Crown Point, Ind. He is the grandson of Don and Wendy Kaminski and Charlotte Kidder and the late Rae Kidder.
The bride chose her gown and veil from The Something Blue Shoppe, with alterations by Urban Altered. She wanted to incorporate her mother’s veil, so she added pieces of it to her veil.
Maids of honor were Keeley Osborne and Corrina Hall, best friends of the bride. Bridesmaids were Rebecca Gans, Samantha King, Meghan Mitchell, friends of the bride, and Jill Kidder, sister of the groom. Flower girls were Kenslie Brown, family friend of the bride, and Macy Kidder, niece of the groom.
Best man was Clayton Grana, best friend of the groom. Groomsmen were Jon Atwood, friend of the groom; Lucas Gans, friend of the bride; Kaden Daniel and Kai Daniel, brothers of the bride; and Allen Leigh, Jr., cousin of the groom. Ushers were Josh Leigh, Alex Leigh, Preston Kaminski, and Jackson Kaminski. Ring bearer was Lettie McMahan, cousin of the bride.
Wedding director was Terri Brown. Floral designer was Dugger’s Florist in Athens. The bride’s mother decorated the reception area. Music for the ceremony was provided by Kenneth Rogers. Caterer was Jill’s Sweet Memories, who also made the wedding cake and groom’s cake. Photographer was Matt and Jasmine Photography, and videographer was Bruce Granger Fractal Image.
The bride loves Disney so she incorporated it in subtle ways into the ceremony and reception: Beauty and the Beast themed music, cake topper, and the ring bearer carried a rose shaped ring box like Beauty and the Beast.
For their honeymoon, the couple spent a week in Captiva Island, Fla. in a beach cottage, and then a day at Magic Kingdom in Disney World. They are now residing in Florence.
