Garden Court Louisville Vietnamese-American Wedding

Tucked away in the middle of Louisville, Trent & Trang married in the afternoon at Garden Court. They shared both Vietnamese and American wedding traditions throughout the day. The weather was perfect, the venue was magical, and Trent & Trang were smiling all day. Not to mention they practically glowed throughout their wedding day. It was a pleasure to join them and a pleasure to join their selected vendors, including White Owl Weddings.

Amber & Ryan

Louisville, Wedding

Downtown Louisville Art Gallery 21C Museum

I was so pumped to photograph this wedding after Amber & Ryan met me last year. We laughed about the fun we could have with penguins and the views from the rooftop of 21C Museum Louisville. They were so fun and easy going, I knew I’d get much needed creative liberties with them during our portrait sessions. 21C did not disappoint.

But even more impressive is the event Amber and Ryan planned for their guests. They created their own piece of art during their ceremony in front of their guests. They even true some paint around, Amber got some on her dress and she loved how appropriate that made their wedding. (side note: Amber and Ryan met in art class!) They also had their reception, toasts, dances in the gorgeous atrium at 21C Museum. Their guests enjoyed roaming from gallery to gallery admiring the art and ambience of the venue.

It was a real treat to follow these guys around and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to know them.

Aliqae & Andrew

Louisville, Wedding

Elegant Wedding at the Louisville Henry Clay House

Aliqae & Andrew traveled to Louisville, from the rural parts of New York State, to have a downtown wedding with their friends and family. They chose the essence of elegance, the Henry Clay. The ornate mirror she got dressed in front of, was wall height, mirroring her wedding gown with a lace cover up top. He wore a cumber bun and bowtie, and the two saw each other for a first look on the sun filled and brick wall lined patio.

The ceremony was personally tweaked to include new and old traditions, carefully chosen readings and the backstory on how Aliqae and Andrew came to be Aliqae & Andrew. They kissed twice for their first kiss and spent the following cocktail hour with their guests, mingling and conversing with a group from all over the US.

As expected, dinner was exquisite, the music, lively, and a retro photobooth kept guests moseying around the ballroom in sombreros and masks. Nieces & nephews excitedly watched the cake cutting and then admired Andrew & Aliqae’s first dance as the sun slowly sank below the rooftops outside. It really was an elegant event perfectly designed and executed by two classy souls. I feel very fortunate to have been apart of it.

Special thanks to the vendors on this one. Maggie, the wedding day coordinator was absolutely top notch. Aliqae & Andrew selected a great team of vendors because everyone worked flawlessly to help make this wedding celebration a smashing success.

Kirsten & Rashad

Louisville, Wedding

Elegant Downtown Louisville Wedding

This elegant wedding day may or may not have started at a go-kart racing track outside Louisville Kentucky. We met the groom, Rashad just before he donned on his racing helmet and he competed against groomsmen, friends and family. The crew there were super helpful with giving us access to places for cool shots. The winner was still unclear at the end of their race, but obviously the real winner was Rashad: he left the go-kart track and got ready to marry a drop dead gorgeous Kirsten.

We then made the trek into downtown Louisville to the Embassy Suites across from the Seelbach Hotel. In a beautifully lit suite, Kirsten got ready with her bridesmaids. The best part about watching the wedding party get ready, is that despite running late there was a room full of laughter. Despite a misplaced veil, there were butterflies and excitement for the first look: smiles and greetings followed by hugs filled the Embassy Suites Hotel Lobby. The wedding party nailed their portraits and we snuck a few of Kirsten & Rashad just in time to hide from their guests as they entered the ceremony space.

The ceremony was kept at a low light. The Embassy Suite’s chandeliers (Kirsten’s favorite element of the space) just barely illuminated the guests as they stood the entire ceremony for Kirsten & Rashad. Not a single soul wasn’t captivated by their romantic ceremony and passionate first kiss (and second kiss!)

It didn’t take any time at all for the guests to head up to the reception hall and begin the celebration with dancing and the most touching speeches. The bride and groom had invited such a loving and happy group together to celebrate their marriage and it was a hell of a party. Thank you so much, Kirsten & Rashad for having us.

Sidenote: I absolutely adore this top photo. It’s the moment, in the middle of a kiss, when you stop to smile. All candid, not provoked or posed. All love. All Kirsten & Rashad.

Noah’s Event Louisville Wedding

Renee & Cody met me super early for their engagement session to wander through the woods, watch the deer, and then hang amongst the murals in the distillery district of Lexington. I was so excited for their wedding after I became so taken by these two. Renee made her own Moss Boxes with wood from her Parents house. They are so impressive! Renee also forewarned me that she had an epic wedding gift for Cody. That was just the Cherry on top.

I won’t ruin the surprise, you’ll have to check out the photos below to see what her gift was. Thank you to Renee & Cody for being gracious and accommodating throughout the day. They had the most contagiously high spirits and it makes our hearts so warm.

Shelbyville Red Orchard Barn

Jessica & Jason has one of my favorite engagement sessions. We explored Joe Ley Antiques and 21c Hotel. That being said, I was super excited about their wedding and it did not disappoint. They had origami cranes as a backdrop to their ceremony on a beautiful day in October. Their reception was the perfect setting for a group dance to Bohemian Rhapsody. They remade the painting of Rene Magritte’s Lovers II and exited to sparklers. I loved the personal touches and the amount of fun had all day and night. Congratulations to these two for a wedding to remember ❤
