A crazy sweet couple, epic stain glass windows and a large group of family and friends showering the bride and groom in love made this wedding day a dream. The College Hill Methodist Church in Waco KY gives brides the perfect mix of classic and modern. The church is filled with wooden pews and stunning stain glass windows and the fellowship hall is what modern dream are made of-open, high ceilings, clean lines, and wooden floors.
In true Kentucky fashion the sun was shining and the humidity was high. Smiles and excitement from both Chance and Emmalee were so contagious. I love it when you can feel the anticipation of marrying your best friend.
Donuts, cake and dancing are the perfect trifecta to finish off a beautiful Kentucky wedding. Congratulations Chance and Emmalee. I am so thankful I was able to to get to know the two of you and share in your wedding day. I pray for continued blessings and lots of new adventures and experiences together in your marriage.
These two are seriously the cutest! I did a happy dance when Emmalee reached out to me about her fall wedding and we quickly started planning their engagement session. I use these sessions as a way to get to know all of my couples and to hear their story. I love not only hearing their story but also watching their interactions as they take turns sharing their memories about how it all began.
Kentucky weather is known to be a bit unpredictable. Crazy humidity and a constantly changing weather forcast is the norm in the summer so a forecast of rain for 9 days straight was no surprise when I made my way to Kentucky. The day of their engagement session was the first time I saw the sun during this trip. I love some sunshine, but give me some amazing post rain clouds each and every session. It was a perfect combination for this beautiful couple.
It felt like the glowing sun just followed Emmalee and Chance around as they walked through the fields and talked about their love story. They laughed, and snuggled and let me see their sweet connection.
I made Chance check for snakes and then I had him twirl her in the tall grass. My favorite moments are when I wouldn’t say anything and they would start whispering to each other and then they soon erupted into laughter-those moments are my favorite-real laughter, real snuggles and kisses. Give them all to me. I don’t want to rush time but I might be counting down the days until their wedding.
I don’t get to do it very often but when I have a open Saturday and get the chance to second shoot with one of my really good friends the answer is always yes! Jessica, the beautiful face behind Shutter and Bloom was not only the main photographers for this wedding but she was also the matron of honor!
The flowers from Love and Bloom Farm were unreal and Meghin would take anyones breath away. The combination created a ceremony was straight out of a storybook. The families cried happy tears as these two exchanged their vows. I had to fight back tears myself.
The fairy tale continued through the night with the reception. Any reception the includes donuts from my favorite spot, Hole and Corner Donuts, will automatically become something straight out of my dreams! Ben and Meghin dance the night away and I was lucky enough to share in the smiles and a few donuts of course!
I have always heard that is is good luck to have a little rain on your wedding day. So when it won’t stop raining that has to be a amazing sign! A marriage is symbolized by a knot and a wet knot is basically impossible to untie. When you ‘tie the knot’ on a rainy day your marriage and bond is hard to unravel.
Joby and Breana’s day was so beautiful and most importantly filled with so many smiles and so much love. We had to adjust and move the beautiful setup indoors but everyone was so eager to help make the adjustment as quick as possible. The rain ended just in time for the fog to roll in over the mountains. I always sneak my bride and groom away for sunset portraits when I can but this time it was for the fog which has become my newest obsession.
Everyone ate cake and the kids danced in the rain. It was a beautiful day and I am so thankful I was able to share in it with this sweet couple.
Kentucky weather is crazy (as most of you know). This September wedding was one of the hottest I have had all year. But can we talk about how beautiful the Bride Alicia still looked? I was a hot sweaty mess but she was glowing. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day for a farm wedding.
All the details were perfect from the wildflower bouquets to the family quilts covering the hay stacks. The sweetest part of the day was the unity sand where all of the kids were involved, each having their own container of sand. Alicia and Daniel I pray continual blessings over your marriage and your beautiful family. Thank you for allowing me to capture your day.
