Michele & Cody // Lost River Cave // Bowling Green, KY // September 2017
Let's talk about Lost River Cave. First of all, what a hidden gem! I didn't know about it until Michele & Cody reached out to me last year and I definitely should have known about it much sooner. With that in mind— if anyone reading this knows about any other magical spots that you haven't shared with me please message me so this won't happen again! Now that we have that out of the way... Lost River Cave was the perfect location for Michele & Cody's woodsy wedding. They love all things outdoors (kayaking, hiking, and backpacking are their jam) so it only makes sense to get married at a spot that reflects that. They fell in love with Lost River after exploring the area on a date and knew right away that's where they would like to get married one day.
Their wedding day felt adventurous, magical, and intimate. There were all kinds of details I really enjoyed (specifically that Michele wore her mother's veil and their geode cake involved rock candy) but the ceremony itself was the element that really stood out to me. They each wrote their own heartfelt vows. As they shared their promises with one another the sun got lower and lower and the evening songbirds began singing. It was a really special moment— I would be surprised if there were any dry eyes by the end of the ceremony.
After dinner, friends and family joined Michele and Cody on the dance floor. As the dancing heated up and the valley cooled down a mist rose from the cave into the starlit woods. It was a beautiful way to end a beautiful day.
