Mr. and Mrs. Lisby

When I said I was finished blogging all of my 2018 weddings I wasn’t telling the full truth. I was holding this one for the 4th of July because this wedding took place during 4th of July weekend last year. Wendy and John got married on July 7, 2018 at Gallrein Farms in Shelbyville, Ky. This wedding was full of red, white and blue from the grooms socks, to the red bridesmaid dresses and navy groomsmen suits. The day ended with a beautiful sunset and pictures by the water. Wendy’s dad even brought down his 69 Camero Z28 to snap a few pictures with. Everything about this day was exactly the way Wendy and John wanted it and it was perfect. Happy 4th of July everyone, I hope you all enjoy this wedding :)

Mr. and Mrs. Morgan

This was my final wedding of 2018, which means I’m caught up on my 2018 weddings. Hallelujah!! JD and Emma Morgan got married 4 days shy of Christmas, and it was nothing short of magical. Emma started the day in matching flannels with her girl squad. They got ready at the reception venue, The Signature Club at Lansdowne, which provides a bridal suite for the couple and their wedding party.    The ceremony was held at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church in their beautiful sanctuary. Wreaths were hanging down behind the alter and Emma's dress, from David's Bridal, glowed the whole way down the aisle. There was not a dry eye in the house (including me, I’ve never cried so much during a ceremony) as Emma walked herself down the aisle in memory of her father who passed.    After the ceremony, the bridal party took a limo from Gold Shield Limo and headed to the reception. All the fun was caught on video by Lindsey Ritchie and coordinated by Danielle Trenaman. Emma and JD ended the night dancing with all their friends for hours on hours! I'm so thankful I got to capture this emotional, loving, and fun wedding!

Mr. and Mrs. Trenaman

Danielle and Hunter's winter wedding day was filled with their love for Christ and the spirit of Christmas. Danielle and her 14, yes 14, bridesmaids started the day at a huge, beautiful house in downtown Cincinnati. The amazing wood embellishments in the house popped in the background against the matching flannel bridesmaid pajamas. The groomsmen got ready at an AirBNB in Over the Rhine and it was equally as stunning.    The ceremony was held at Christ Church United which was decked out in Christmas decor and had a huge vaulted ceiling. Danielle and Hunter said, "I do" standing next to a huge christmas tree surrounded by a packed out sanctuary of people. The reception venue was so unique, The Mess Hall at Fort Thomas has been renovated to hold large weddings and facilitate the perfect wedding night.    The wedding details were captured by an amazing team. Hunter Rogers was the wedding coordinator and did such an amazing job, she inspired Danielle to pursue doing the same thing to help other brides! The video was captured by Morgan Price who always catches the sweetest, tear-jerking moments and I was lucky enough to take these wedding photos for Danielle and Hunter who are so near and dear to my heart!

Mr. and Mrs. Adekoya

Morgan and Justin had the perfect fall, barn wedding on October 20th, 2018. Farmstead at Shawnee Trails provided a great location for both the ceremony and reception. It was a chilly day, but I don’t think you can tell. The night ended in a stunning sunset that gave the bride and groom photos they will cherish for a lifetime.    Morgan started the day with mimosas and a gorgeous floral robe that complimented the florals her grandmother put together by hand! The brides wedding gown had a sweetheart neckline and sheer fabric with lace florals up to her collarbone. The dress was purchased at Meant to Be Boutique in Lexington, Ky. The bridesmaids wore maroon gowns that had sheer lace from their knee to their feet, I love the uniqueness of them!    Family means so much to Justin and Morgan and that was evident throughout the day. Morgan got embroidered handkerchiefs for all the special women in their lives and many tears were shed! She looked forward to the dance with her dad for such a long time and it was everything Morgan dreamed it would be! Justin and Morgan ended the night being celebrated out by all their loved ones.

Mr. and Mrs. Bright

The Bright wedding was a day full of color and celebration! From the bridal bouquet to the horses and stables, Ben and Laura had every detail planned perfectly. The bride had a bouquet full of dull pinks, warm oranges, and deep reds and maroons. She wore a beautiful lace, form fitting gown with a birdcage veil in her hair.    The bride and groom got married under a breathtaking four post canopy, at the brides family farm. Small vases with flowers adorned the canopy and hung over them as they said, "I do." My favorite part of the day were the bride and groom portraits after the ceremony. From their “tiny house”, Laura’s beautiful horse and the stunning sunset, what more could I have asked for on a wedding day as the photographer.    The couple's barn wedding was a classy take on the rustic look. It was decked out with greenery and small paper hangings all around the canopy. The caged lanterns and paper lanterns glowed all night until the couple ran out amongst the sparklers. I hope you all love this bright and color wedding as much as I do.
