It's been a couple years since I had the chance to photograph a wedding at Warrenwood Manor, so I was thrilled when Janice & Quentin told me that's where they were getting married! It's not often a venue has a gorgeous space to get ready, multiple location options for having the ceremony, as well as an ideal reception space. As a photographer, I can't tell you how much stress is alleviated from a wedding day when you don't have to drive from location to location. It makes it so everyone can have some downtime and really be present, plus it gives us the ability to take couple's photos casually throughout the day instead of in one bigger block of time. Before this turns into an advertisement for Warrenwood, let's talk about this amazing couple.

Janice & Quentin are full of joy & laughter. They are remarkably kind to each other and everyone around them, so it didn't surprise me when they made every member of their vendor team feel like family. It was humbling to get to photograph their wedding and I am so happy to now call them friends! 

I could go on and on, but I really should just let the images speak for themselves. I’ve shared a few more details throughout the post that I couldn’t resist including.

During the Chinese tea ceremony, Quentin & Janice served tea to their parents and grandparents as a way to show respect and say thank you for helping them become the people they are now. Each of those family members said a little something after they had been served tea. I LOVE this tradition— it brought a new layer of intention, thoughtfulness, and intimacy to the day that really stuck with me and set the tone for the remainder of the day.

In their words, "having dinner family style is not only a great tie into Chinese culture, but also helps us make the evening more intimate and bring together people from all different parts of our lives." I couldn't agree more— getting to sit and chat with guests during dinner was wonderful and I enjoyed watching so many important people from their lives all talking and getting to know one another.

Amanda + Gil // Whitehall Garden Wedding // Louisville, Kentucky Wedding and Elopement Photographer

For Amanda & Gil's blog post I wanted to try something a little different. Their garden wedding had so many gorgeous greens and Whitehall has lots of lovely colorful wallpaper as well...but every time I went through the images the black & white versions were what stood out to me. I've always wanted to share a wedding in just black & white, so today I'm taking the leap! Please keep in mind I delivered both color & black and white images to them, you can see some of the color versions on Instagram, but I'm excited to share the monochrome versions with you all here!

Amanda & Gil had been in a long distance relationship for a couple of years while Amanda worked in Iowa and Gil worked in Louisville. Now they are happily settled in Texas. Their wedding was a celebration of their new marriage of course, but it also felt like a celebration of finally getting to live together. I really enjoyed documenting each of them interacting with their parents and their side of the wedding party before the ceremony— you could tell how much everyone in their lives cares for them. Giving them the space to have some time together alone in the gardens after the ceremony allowed for some really sweet and intimate images as well. They used Amanda's grandmother's cake stand and the knife her parents used at their own wedding. I really loved getting to stay all the way until the end of the night when they left Whitehall in their getaway car with all their friends and family waving on the front porch. I feel like the images really speak for themselves, so that's all I'll share! 

If you're looking for more gorgeous, historic weddings Annmarie & Ethan's Warrenwood wedding and Lauren & Dean's Paducah wedding would be wonderful to check out!

Lauren & Dean // Intimate & Historic Paducah Wedding // Louisville Kentucky Wedding and Elopement Photographer

Lauren and Dean's intimate, historic wedding in Paducah, Kentucky is literally what wedding photographers dream about. Not only was it filled with gorgeous details and dreamy light, but they have such a big love for each other and everyone around them, and it really came through in their images. I feel so lucky to have been a part of their wedding day.

Driving down to Paducah from Louisville was a wonderful way to start the day. It's easy to get used to how stunning Kentucky is, but as I drove through the rolling hills in Western Kentucky I was in awe. I always get "warmed up" on a wedding day with detail shots— Lauren's dress was so perfectly her. I couldn't even imagine how she found one to fit her style and personality so seamlessly, but soon I learned that her mother Amy made it by hand and it all made sense. In eleven years of photographing weddings, I don't think I've seen a handmade dress - let alone one sewed by the bride's mother! All of their details felt that personal and I absolutely loved it. Dean said, "Lauren being a graphic designer by trade really helped keep the aesthetic timeless and classic. She has a great eye!" and I couldn't agree more. 

For their ceremony, "we wanted to incorporate both our religious upbringings in the service. It was important for me to include some Filipino traditions, the coins, cord, and veil, in the service to honor my heritage and our commitment to each other. We skipped the candle lighting and some other traditions (sand, ribbon, etc) and trimmed down some of the Christian traditions to just what we wanted and felt was right."

My favorite moment of the day ended up being their favorite moment as well, which makes me incredibly happy. After the dance floor had been going for a little while, the sun was getting pretty low, so I snagged them and we snuck out to the fire escape to watch the sunset. I always try to give me couples a breather to reflect on the day and really take it all in at some point and I'm so glad they enjoy it as much as I do. 

I'll leave you with some words of wisdom from the couple, "I got this advice from a bunch of people for our wedding day, but I'll pass it along: The day goes by so quickly so it's important to stop worrying about everything and slow down and notice all the details and the little moments. Also to make sure to take time to be alone together and enjoy some moments alone together as newlyweds."

Cassie + Drew // Outdoor Farmington Wedding // Louisville Kentucky Wedding and Elopement Photographer

cassie-drew-wedding-farmington-sarah-katherine-davis-photography-430edit.jpg

I first met Cassie in college through mutual friends. We went out dancing a few times, and of course, my camera was always in tow. She was so fun to photograph, always laughing and smiling. When I saw she was engaged I crossed all my fingers and toes that she would ask me to photograph her wedding, which brings us here! 

Cassie and Drew wanted to keep their wedding day simple and to skip any traditions that didn't feel significant to them, which I 100% recommend for everyone getting married. They chose Farmington because it was already gorgeous and didn't need a lot of extra decorations to make it feel special, plus they could have all the day's events in one location to cut down on driving and to make everything more relaxed. Cassie skipped a bouquet because she didn't want to have to carry it around all day— a decision that led to two amazing corsages. We both agreed that her upper arm corsage felt especially badass. Her engagement ring was designed by Heidi Gibson around a family stone and is possibly the best ring I've ever seen.

As Cassie walked down the aisle, the wedding party joined in singing the "na na na na" part of "Hey Jude" and all of Drew's side put on sunglasses. Cassie says it was her favorite part of the day— it felt so special and fun. Drew's aunt Kathy performed their ceremony which Drew and Cassie worked together to create based on other ceremony scripts they found online. 

After the ceremony, I knew they wanted to prioritize spending time with friends and family over posed photos, so we spent about thirty minutes total on all of the family formals, wedding party photos, and couples photos. It might have been the quickest I've ever managed to do them (shout out to their family for being so organized!) 

Their reception had the best energy— DIY colorful pom-poms hung with string lights from the ceiling, wildflowers filled eclectic vintage vases, and the garden was close enough for couples to sneak off for a romantic stroll. I loved watching all of their friends dance with their family members and seeing everyone get to know each other more as the evening went on. My three favorite reception moments were when the conga line formed, when everyone (myself included) sang along to "Kiss From a Rose", and at the end of the night when family and friends formed a circle around Cassie & Drew for a final dance.

Elle & Suzy // Spring Wedding at the Lincliffe Estate // LGBTQ Kentucky Wedding and Elopement Photographer

It's always really hard for me to choose a favorite moment on wedding days, but I will never forget Suzy's face when she saw Elle for the first time at the ceremony. It's way up at the top of my list of best moments from the day (although it was full of amazing moments). If you're short on time, scroll down to the start of the ceremony photos because I really don't want you to miss those reaction shots.

When I first pulled up to the Lincliff Estate I was blown away and I have never been SO GLAD to get to a venue early. There was enough time for me to explore the gardens and once again I found myself fangirling over plants at a wedding. It ended up raining throughout the ceremony (and well into the reception), but it made it feel really intimate and fun. Their grandmothers were the flower girls and one of their best friends was the ring bearer. They had several friends and family members do readings throughout the ceremony— it felt personal, intentional, and romantic. 

I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little teary during the toasts and as Elle & Suzy danced with their families. With every interaction, you could tell how much everyone there adored them. Also, EVERYONE was tearing it up on the dance floor— I don't know if I've ever seen a dance floor so packed and full of energy. 

If you're wanting to see even more gorgeous spring florals Angela & Jon and Lauren & Joey brought their A-game to the floral department as well. Also Elle & Suzy's engagement session was so much fun— you really should check it out if you haven't seen it already. Or even if you've already seen it because it's that good. As always, I've linked to all the amazing vendors at the bottom of the post.
