For the wedding, Jenelle's first child, Jace, was the only family member in attendance, besides her other children whom she has custody of, Kaiser and Ensley. "Everyone David knows is there, she has no body there,” Barbara said. “When push comes to shove it doesn’t matter. When you’re a mother it’s unconditional love. To do this to me, it is heart wrenching. If this is what she chooses to alienate me out of her life so be it.”
