When: March 2019
Megan found me on a facebook group for Louisville Wedding Vendors and Brides. She was looking for a photographer who could handle the contrasting skin tones of her and her fiancé, Kerry, as she had bad experiences in the past with photographers not giving her quality photos. Once I sent her samples of my work and sat down and talked to her, she was confident that I knew how to take care of her on her wedding day.
Kerry and Megan’s fun Kentucky wedding was on a snowy and rainy day in Louisville and they used the theme of royalty and kings and queens. The girls got ready in the world famous hotel, The Seelbach located in downtown Louisville. The hotel is famous for having Al Capone as a frequent guest. And Megan even had some portraits taken in his special poker playing room. Megan looked beautiful in her full ball gown style dress from David’s Bridal. And her bridesmaid’s wore beautiful gold sequin gowns purchased from Dillard’s. Kerry looked classic and stylish in blue suit accented with a gold tie, from Men’s Warehouse.
The ceremony was at the couple’s church in Louisville, and the pastor and family friend officiated the ceremony. The couple also included a touching exchange of vows with their children as well. Because the couple had a later ceremony and did not have a first look, we only had a couple minutes to get some beautiful portraits of the bride and groom before the sunlight was gone. Because they were so easy going and fun, it wasn’t hard at all in the time crunch!
Their reception followed inside the Jeffersonian event venue. The tables were decorated with royal blue linens, gold accents and centerpiece of gold wine bottles with white flowers. They also had a beautiful cake made by the bride’s mother for their guests to enjoy after a taco bar provided by their friends. I could not believe how beautiful the hard crafted sugar flowers were that Megan’s mom had made for her cake! The couple also had frozen drinks provided by Frozen Delites.
Megan and Kerry had a fun surprise first dance to Here & Now by Luther Vandross that gets interrupted by their daughters and ending with the entire wedding party dancing to the Wobble Song.
The couple were able to enjoy their reception with family and friends because of their DJ, a friend of Kerry’s and a photo booth provided by Laser Labs. Kerry & Megan ended the night partying and dancing the night away with their closest friends!
