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!

Ritz Charles Wedding – Erin and Justin

Erin and Justin’s beautiful wedding was a joy to shoot from start to finish. I say this a lot but this wedding was HOT. Like, the kind of heat that makes you sleepy and just want to lay in a kiddie pool with a hose running on you. That didn’t stop this pair from being incredibly sweet and their wedding guests having an amazing time. Our day started with the girls getting their hair and makeup done before heading to the Ritz Charles  to finish getting ready. Once arriving Shane headed off to hang out with the guys and can I just say that Justin is a pro groom? He taught everyone how to fold their pocket squares, pin their boutonnieres, and even bustled Erin’s dress after the ceremony! After everyone was ready and portraits wrapped up guests began to arrive and Erin and Justin said their “I do’s” amongst family and friends. After their ceremony the crowd moved to the beautiful garden pavillion behind the chapel while we squeezed in a few sweet portraits. Their reception started with dinner, cake, and speeches, and we took a little break from the heat for some photos as the sun dipped down and headed back to start their first dance. A wild dance floor followed fueled by their band ended with their bouquet and garter tosses. Their sparkler exit ended the night and the guests sang the star spangled banner as they ran down the rows of happy faces. Indianapolis wedding photographerRomantic Indiana photographer

Washington Township Park Avon Wedding – Morgan and Tyler

Morgan and Tyler’s wedding was a muggy, muddy, rainy Sunday and it couldn’t have been sweeter. The rain stopped just as Morgan’s dress was on and Tyler and their pup waited outside for their first look. After a few portraits around the park guests began arriving for their ceremony with the soft gray clouds hanging low behind them. After their vows their reception started. Their DIY reception was so perfect with the cupcakes Morgan and family made themselves and all the pretty wildflowers Morgan didn’t just arrange but GREW herself. After speeches, cupcakes, and dinner the pair shared a first dance and Morgan a dance with her dad before the dance floor opened up and the party began. Just before packing up and heading out we took them outside for a few more portraits in the damp woods, always my favorite way to end a wedding. These two were so calm and kind and sweet and rainy weddings like this make me so darn happy.
