Amy & Hank

Ever thine

Ever mine

Ever ours

Just a few simple (but powerful) words when it comes to love. Amy and Hank knew quickly their love was real. Raw. And most importantly genuine. Their love grew when they started attending church together and the rest… was history. They have known each other for years… attending weddings of mutual friends and hung out at local charity functions…. the list goes on. Amy fell in love with Hank’s good humor, warm heart and great character. She knew he was the one. Hank always knew Amy was a catch. He even tried to ‘capture’ her heart one day offering to bring her cupcake holders for a fundraiser she was helping. The simple things. This day, Amy and Hank wanted a day filled with love, all their friends and family and of course lots of laughter…

A catch.

A veil is always a good idea.

The beautiful wedding morning scenery.

Little Zoe, equally beautiful in her pale grey JCREW dress.

Classic beauty. You are.

Jeanie & Daniel { Romantic Rehearsal Dinner}

When I saw you

I fell in love, and

you smiled

because you knew.

- William Shakespeare

 Jeanie and Daniel were amongst their closest family and friends one cool summer day in August… who came from afar to celebrate their union Kentucky Style. Horses, bourbon and touch of romantic, vintage glamour they were all decked out in the fanciest dresses, fascinators, and bow ties : )

Their wedding weekend began at the Woodford Reserve, a setting truly ‘horse country’ and bourbon making. They chose the site as a treat to their distinguished guests to tour and enjoy. They wanted an outdoor garden feel for their dinner gathering but also knew what Kentucky weather was like. Unpredictable. So, a clear tent was the perfect idea for their ‘garden’ vision. Emma, the groom’s mother had big dreams of a vintage themed event with lace, pearls, cream and blush. Old books, antique tea roses and cut glass vases came to mind as she researched for hours online. Yes, pinterest was largely to blame. For months Emma kept a folder with dreams, ideas and to do lists. She made ‘DIY’  framed pictures of the lovely couple to bring touch of personal to the tablescape. Multiple pillar and tea candles added to the warmth and romance of the event. Other ‘soft’ elements were nude table linens, sashes and ivory lace. Everything hard and harsh at the Dryer House was covered and draped. Bolts of cream and blush stretch fabric were used to make garlands.. carefully draping the black iron rails. No detail was overlooked. All these came together with the help (and magic hands) of Doug Smith and Glenn Blind of Doug Smith Designs and Events. Perfectly placed florals, bows and settings, everything came together more perfectly than Emma had imagined. Her dream of a warm and inviting but ‘from years gone by’ event came true. An appetizer to a spectacular wedding weekend.

Jeanie and Daniel seeing everything for the first time…

Emma has collected vintage tea cups since her own wedding day.

Keeping with the southern charm of Kentucky, the guest tables were named after famous bourbons, instead of traditional table numbers.

 Jeanie sparkled in her Parker beaded and feathered dress, perfect for dancing the night away. Here with her is Rachel, her Maid of Honor, in a Sue Wong creation. Oh how I love these fabulous dresses!! These designs exudes sensuous Hollywood glamour and the mystery and romance of Paris. They’re made of soft silk… hand-beaded and embroidered with art deco lines and swirls. Jeanie and Rachel chose a classic silhouette with a flirtatious hemline.

Jane & Kenny { Ashley Inn B&B }

i feel you whisper

across the sea

They met across the seas…. finding each other in the most unexpected place. At a rowing club. They rowed, flirted, played, and traveled and finally Kenny asked the MOST important 4 words…. Jane could not refuse. She smiled and whispered… a yes. They married across the Atlantic ocean in February and now in Kentucky. Not a detail spared! Jane got to plan two weddings and second time around, she dreamed of a romantic feat with Kentucky (horse country) accents. With a new dress by couture bridal designer Stephanie Allin, she glowed and wowed her US family (and her groom!) and friends. Soft shades of lavender, blush and pale blue were accents throughout her day… from the pretty lavender ‘grecian-like’ bridesmaid’s gowns to the whimsical, mix matched table settings at her reception at Ashley Inn Bed and Breakfast. Pretties aside, the day started off unusually wet and mild for a SUMMER Kentucky wedding. She must have brought LONDON with her because it rained all day prior and on the wedding day! Luckily with a little prayer, the skies cleared for some glorious sunshine during the outdoor ceremony AND pictures!! Indeed a prosperous day!

At Ashley Inn, we chose the TARA room for Jane’s getting ready. It’s soft blues and posh details complimented everything Jane had in mind for her romantic day. The light was insanely beautiful and I could not have dreamed of a more perfect room to feel and look pretty in.

Jane and Kenny chose these unique handmade wedding rings by Ruth Tomlinson.

I adore these delicate necklaces the girls wore. Soft pearl and leaf design by Luxedeluxe at Etsy.

I couldn’t help but to explore a little at Ashley Inn. I found some old classics in their library, a perfect perch and accent for Jane and Kenny’s details.

Kenny is no slouch when it comes to dressing. Carefully chosen pieces by Ted baker and Duchamp were just the tip of the ice. His handmade, bespoke Buday shoes paired well with the GRAY suit he chose for this special occasion.

Yes, every (stylish) man should own a Ted Baker suit.

On the way down to meet Kenny for the ‘second’ time…

Light rain started but the day was still perfect…

Love! Macarons and cake? She read my mind. Delicious treat for my (ok, everyone’s) heart.

Their adventure. From London to Kentucky and beyond… What great stories they would tell!

KEEP

CALM

Jane and Kenny’s SLIDESHOW is coming up soon!! Thank you so much for stopping by : )
