Married: Cindy & Alex: Louisville, Kentucky Wedding Photography

Cindy & Alex were married in Louisville on the lawn of the Peterson Dusmenil House on Memorial Day weekend. They live in Germany where Alex is from. Cindy works as a translator there. A month before this American ceremony they participated in a German ceremony so they got to get married twice:) Such a lovely day!

It's always fun to hoist the groom!

Don't you just love these "clothes pin" people? Of course the groom is is traditional German garb:)

 

Engaged: Stephanie & David, Lexington, Kentucky Wedding/ Engagement Photography

Stephanie has one of the sweetest dispositions you can imagine and drop-dead gorgeous looks to go with. I couldn’t imagine her swatting at even a fly! That’s why she needs a prince like David. Together they make up the definition of “cute couple.” Stephanie & David have that perfect balance. I could see how much they cared for each other during their engagement session. We were trying to photos with the horses in them but they were being elusive and staying away. David knew how much Stephanie wanted horses in their photos so he on several occasions would go over to the fence and try to get their attention. Their August wedding will be here before we all know it. I’m double excited because it falls on my birthday:) It’ll be a grand day indeed!

I asked Stephanie for a few words on how David proposed and here’s what she wrote:

**We were on vacation in Destin, FL when David proposed.  We had just enjoyed another beautiful day on the beach and we were heading out for what had become our ritual sunset beach walk.  On a private part of the beach David caught me completely off guard and delivered the sweetest, most touching proposal.  He produced from his pocket the most beautiful ring I had ever seen and dropped to one knee and popped the question.  Of course, I said yes!  David had champagne waiting on our balcony when we returned and then we headed out for a celebratory dinner on the dock at Dewey Destin’s Restaurant. It was a perfect day!**

 

Married: Melissa & Jamie, Lexington, Kentucky Wedding

Melissa & Jamie: perfect for each other. How could Jamie resist a woman so sweet as Melissa? Melissa spent time getting ready with her sisters and mom at the Hunt Morgan House (where the Lexington’s Woman’s Club meets). It’s historic grandeur only added to the romantic feel of the day. Lining the driveway of the Unitarian Universalist Church were hand made signs reading things like “Love Birds This Way” and “Welcome to Our Wedding.”  The couple met each other in the garden area before the ceremony took place. A delightful time was had by all the guests as they enjoyed the wedding, dinner and cake. The reception commenced with the sending off of giant heart-shaped paper lanterns. All of the guests took part, watching a sky filled with floating symbols of love:)

Married: Tasha & Tyler: Lexington, Kentucky Wedding Photography

Tasha and Tyler married in the Old Morrison Chapel on Transylvania University’s campus. What a beautiful shade of Malibu blue that laced its way though the decorations to the bridesmaids dresses. The couple couldn’t have been more happy to make their love official in the presence of friends and family!

A photo with all of their guests!

Married: Stephanie & Ben: Simple and Sweet, Wilmore, KY

I knew Stephanie as a co-worker form the Asbury University Challenge Course. When I heard she and Ben, her fiance and best friend, were planning a very small, simple wedding on a Tuesday afternoon I couldn’t say no to taking photographs. She was just thinking a few at the small backyard ceremony and cook out. I told her Id love for her to have some of her and Ben to cherish forever. We took a couple hours before the ceremony to go to the country and have some fun. I just adored her yellow dress and wild daisies for an early May wedding:) Who couldn’t be happy for a couple so full of laughter and joy?
