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!
