Victoria + Brice { Magical Romance Lake Wedding }

We live in a wonderful world

that is full of beauty, charm and adventure.

There is no end to the adventures we can have

if only we seek them with our eyes open.

~ Jawaharial Nehru

The day started bright and early at the cabin, lakeside at a warm 80 deg F. For days leading up to this day, we prayed for a clear, sunny day as rain poured and flooded many areas in eastern Kentucky and this very lake. Fortunately, the sun and skies greeted us kindly and we knew it was going to be a great day.

We know we love shoes. Lace, beading and sparkly stones adorned this ivory, Alisa wedge by Betsey Johnson… acquired to match her gorgeous Sasha gown. A bit a romance, a bit of glamour.

A gown made for Victoria. Its classic, fit to flare line and stunning allover encrusted bodice, screamed romance to the nines. In person, it is breathtaking!

Effortless beauty.

Victoria’s double halo oval engagement ring. Prettiest proposal you’ve ever seen?!

The final touch… fairy tale worthy cathedral length veil to compliment her divine Hayley Paige wedding gown.

Just across the street, Brice gets ready to marry the love of his life. Looking dapper in his dark grey suit and ivory/ pearl tie, he  is eager to see his bride for the first time.

At the right time, the best man delivers a beautiful binder of love letters Victoria has written days leading to the wedding day.

“The unknown is where we come alive. Set ablaze your own trail.”

~ Danielle Doby

Brice, ready as ever. He walks along the lake, away from crowds to meet his new bride.

Their heartfelt first look.

 I love you

because the entire universe

conspired to help me find you.

~  The Alchemist

Yes, he can’t stop looking at her.

The majestic Buckhorn Log Cathedral was completed in 1928, constructed of white oak from the surrounding mountains and recently underwent a major remodeling project. More on its history HERE.

The cathedral was described as somewhat medieval in appearance and Scandinavian in style.

The Hook and Hasting Organ, renovated in 1982, sits like a crowning jewel in this majestic building.

Married, at last!

Above: THE cake takes center stage. Buckhorn Lake reception room has never looked so gorgeous! Special THANKS to Susan Lockhart and her team for this glamorous, beyond beautiful space.

Below: LOVE this welcoming bar.

Beautiful, classic cake by Martine’s Pastries. They wow me every time.

Above: Their sweetheart table lined with all her favorite blooms- peanies, roses, and hydrangeas…. along with lovely white candles to set the mood. Victoria’s vision of pinks, golds and lots of sparkle comes to fruition perfectly.

My heart is,

and always will be,


~ Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
