Did you know I serve Kentucky brides? It’s something I don’t talk about very often, but it’s true! This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to serve Audrey and Justin on their wedding day. If you’ve never been to Kentucky in early May, I would highly recommend it. Ryan and I lost count of the expansive fields of goldenrods we passed on our journey. I wish we had made time to stop and take some photos! It was simply magical. Not only did we get to spend time photographing this gorgeous wedding, but we also briefly spent some time with the Gallaghers, and it was like medicine to my soul. I miss my Kentucky family so much, so I cherish any time I get to spend with them. (Kentucky brides, I would love the an excuse to visit home!)
I had been looking forward to Audrey and Justin’s special day for months on end! As soon as I talked to Audrey on the phone last Fall, we immediately “clicked”. And, when I met her and Justin for their Fall engagement photos, we had such a great time, and a breathtaking sunset for the occasion. Audrey and Justin are just so relaxed and natural around each other. I love working with couples like that. And, I knew their wedding day was going to be beautiful!
I had shot a wedding at the Country Plantation House before and completely fell in love with its classic charm, grandiosity, and versatility. There are chandeliers, countless rooms painted different colors, huge windows, fireplaces, darling loveseats, and a grand staircase. I forgot to mention the wrap around porch! This venue really is the epitome of my style, and I hope to shoot there again someday!
Take a dream venue, an amazing couple… And well, I had a blast! Audrey’s details were stunning. Her neutral florals were the perfect complement to her breathtaking gown, and long veil. Her something borrowed was a bow from her mother’s wedding dress! She used it to hold up her long train at the reception! You have got to see this day for yourself!!
Even though it rained, I don’t think the ceremony could have been more beautiful. It was so personal. I loved hearing why Audrey and Justin love one another, and watching them take their first communion as husband and wife. It was truly a precious day.
