Kyle is the son of Rick Shearer of Clyde and Chris and Janie Smith of Tiffin.
Kendra, given in marriage by her father, wore a white, A-line gown with corset closure featuring an overlapping, ruched bodice that transitioned into a softly draped skirt. The fluted side drape revealed a gathered tulle inset panel with lace drifting toward the scalloped hemline.

She carried a cascading bouquet of ivy, pink star gazers, white roses and peacock feathers.
