Mustard Seed Gardens Wedding – Spencer and Lyndsay

Spencer and Lyndsay’s wedding was my most favorite kind of wedding. Simple, laid back, and sweet with so much meaning in every little detail. We arrived just as Lyndsay was putting on her mother’s wedding dress before she walked down the aisle to an ecstatic Spencer. After their vows under the shade of a gorgeous, old tree in front of their nearest and dearest we shot portraits in the hazy September sun before their reception started. Instead of doing a formal entrance they greeted each guest as they entered the Mustard Seed Gardens barn, such a lovely way to greet each guest. Each table had photos of the two of them at the same age as the table number and sweet little facts about them and their relationship (not to mention the best dang wedding favor of all time, the insanely delicious sugared walnuts Lyndsay and her mom made for the occasion, good lord I could write a whole blog post about them!!!) Dinner was served after everyone was seated followed by a sweet speech from Lyndsay’s father and cutting their beautiful cake. After their first dance and parent dances the guests took to the dance floor and we wrapped up our evening shooting a few more portraits as the sun made its way to the horizon. This was such a special and beautiful day and we were over the moon working with these two!

Brown County Wedding – Tori and Steve

We’ve been heading down south quite a bit this year and Tori and Steve’s day was a perfect Brown County day. They held their wedding on a friend’s property next to the gorgeous Lake Lemon. The ground was a little muddy and the air muggy from the previous day’s storm but it was nothing a little plywood and happy dispositions couldn’t fix. And happy dispositions were abound. After getting ready the pair shared the sweetest first look and we shot their couple’s portraits around the heavy greenery surrounding the property. Guests began to arrive and they exchanged vows under a big shade tree and we headed off to the reception. Their reception decor was AMAZING, probably one of my most favorites. Tori and her mom did all the flowers themselves and I even have one of the succulent favors sitting on my kitchen sink! I haven’t killed it yet! After cutting their cake and their first dance everyone enjoyed an incredible hog roast dinner before we headed out to catch the last light of day for a few more portraits. After speeches and parent dances the dance floor opened up and we wrapped up our day while the music was going strong and the dancing probably lasted all night. I can’t say enough about these two and their perfect day. The warmest, sweetest pair ever and we spent this whole day loving every second.

Thomas Hunt Morgan House Wedding – Chelsey and Chris

When Chelsey had first contacted us about shooting her and Chris’s wedding it was to be in Indiana where Chelsey’s family lives but as time went along they decided why not do it in their beautiful home town of Lexington, Kentucky? We happily came along for the ride and spent the day in the beautiful downtown district at their wedding located in the Thomas Hunt Morgan House. The threat of rain loomed all morning while everyone got ready but luckily held off until after we finished portraits in the stunning garden next to the historic home and the thunder clouds rolled in just as guests were seated and the ceremony was set to begin. After a sweet ceremony complete with a hand fasting ceremony guests were treated to dinner in the incredibly gorgeous rooms. After dinner, cake, and speeches the dancing began and the crowd was so rowdy and fun that the floor shook and buckled and we were sure we were all about to fall through to the basement. The night ended with a few portraits in the rain before the pair were sent off with cheers and glow sticks. This wedding was so lovely and laid back and everyone was sweet as pie, the perfect way to spend a warm September day.

P.S. Chelsey and Chris hired the best wedding planner we’ve ever worked with, Doug Smith Designs and I honestly can’t say enough good things about Doug! If you’re in Lexington and getting married HIRE HIM!
