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.

Melanie & Aaron

Central Kentucky, Frankfort, Wedding

Bourbon Bride + Distillery Wedding

Melanie and Aaron came all the way from Wisconsin to celebrate their wedding with friends and family at Buffalo Trace Distillery. They picked a sunny but cool Friday evening, with the portraits in the gardens and a sunset portrait rendezvous among the barrel houses and smoke stacks. It was delightful meeting their lovely family and getting to photograph the cutest little twins. Thank you Melanie and Aaron for having us, for letting us follow you around your beautiful venue and being such wonderful subjects for us to photograph.

With love,

Brittany & Ben

Colorado, Elopement

Rocky Mountain Elopement

I was very honored to follow Brittany and Ben around the beautiful Rockies. They got an airbnb outside Boulder, with a view of mountains (and Denver.) Their puppy, Sally, came along for the ride. The morning of the wedding was rainy and quietly energized. Brittany and Ben spent the morning apart and had an intimate first look outside their airbnb after donning on their wedding attire.

Piled in a car, we started out along Trail Ridge Road. When we came over a peak, we knew exactly where their ceremony would be. The mountain range being them offered the perfect backdrop to tearful vows, and a long kiss. My boyfriend Josh, officiated the ceremony and played soft acoustic tunes during the ceremony and we took some portraits afterwards. We drove around during the last bit of daylight and captured some mountain reflections on a lakeside and enjoyed a tasty sandwich on an outdoor patio with Sally in Boulder.

The day was unpredictable, the weather forecast warned of rain and flash thunderstorms, but we only saw sunshine, fluffy clouds, chilly winds and a soft sunset. All together, a smashing success. Congratulations Ben & Brittany, you nailed it.

WITH LOVE,
