This classic Kentucky wedding was an absolute dream. Christa and Zach tied the knot on Long Ridge Farm
in Shelbyville, Kentucky. When I talked to Christa on the phone for her pre-wedding consultation, I knew her day was going to be amazing. I could tell the amount of love and work she put into her wedding day. For example, some of her centerpieces were oil lamps that she collected at a variety of antique stores over time. Christa describes herself as an old soul. This little touch on her wedding day was just the perfect amount to showcase her personality, while also being classy. Christa also told me that she wanted a ton of beautiful florals for her wedding day, and Charissa’s Floral Design
truly delivered! These florals are some of the prettiest I have seen all year. Of course, I’m a little partial to all of the blue flowers and details, because it is my favorite color.
When I first arrived at Long Ridge Farm, Christa showed me the room where she would be getting ready. It’s gorgeous! Somehow, it perfectly matched Christa’s colors and personality. It’s decorated with a little bit of a classic, antique-feel. In the photos below, you can see how I was able to use a chair in the room to photograph her details. It was a photographer’s dream!
In lieu of a traditional first look, Christa and Zach decided to hold hands and pray together before their ceremony. This is becoming more common! And, I think it’s a sweet way to calm your nerves, and come together before walking down the aisle. It’s a great option for couples who are more traditional, and are adamant about not wanting a first look.
And, to top everything off, we had a gorgeous sunset on this evening, complete with some horse portraits. I really don’t think this day could have been any more perfect! Christa and Zach were so photogenic and easy to work with. They are, without a doubt, one of the most easygoing, kindest couples I have ever worked with, and I’m so glad they are a #kgpcouple! I wish them many years of happiness as they embark on this new chapter in their lives!
Your pictures are the most beautiful ones that have ever been taken at our venue, The Hay Barn at Long Ridge Farm! Of course Krista was a beautiful bride so you had an advantage….thank you for sharing these photos!
