Kenney Yopp Wedding

Congratulations Taryn Kenney & Stephen Yopp


It was a bold move from Taryn that won Stephen over…for life! Stephen, a chef at Besito restaurant, in West Hartford, was surprised by a glass of wine sent over to him after work by an unknown patron. Taryn was embarrassed by her seemingly bold gesture and quickly left. The chef was intrigued and tracked her down later in the week at a nearby restaurant where she was working. After their first date, she already knew he was the one!

The bride is the daughter of Darryl and Debbie Kenney, of Plantsville. Taryn graduated from Central Connecticut State University and is currently the technical assistant at Michael Baker Engineering, Inc.

The groom is the son of Robert Yopp, Sr., and Maureen Yopp, of Old Bethpage, NY. Stephen graduated from the Culinary Academy of Long Island and is currently the head chef at Besito, of West Hartford.

The April wedding and reception took place on a beautiful day in a picturesque setting under a willow tree at The Barnes at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown.  After their honeymoon cruise to the Bahamas, they now reside in Rocky Hill.
