In light of everything going on in our world with COVID-19, Bailey and Tim opted to cancel their reception and have a microwedding with only their closest friends and family. But even without a reception, their day was nothing short of a party. These two met at work and dated for seven years before they promised each other forever. As their officiant so eloquently put it, when they said “I do” they were promising to love and each other even when life sucks and respect each other even when there were things they would change about them. In our culture, we can be so quick to forget how simple it is. We just have to keep choosing to keep that promise, when everything is great and also when everything is hard.
Their hot September wedding day threatened rain but held off until evening. We took full advantage of the chance to get outside for portraits, and even played a bit of Frogger on the Roebling bridge to get “the shot”. Bailey and Tim are were naturals at posing even without an engagement session and are just so clearly well matched. They have so much fun together and don’t take themselves too seriously. I had the best time getting to spend the day capturing their love!
For their small ceremony, Mansion Hill Sanctuary provided the perfect backdrop. It’s in the cutest area of town, tucked away in Newport, Kentucky and exudes a timeless blend of classic white walls, high ceilings, and beautiful exposed beams. And even though they didn’t have a big wedding cake, they made sure their guests didn’t leave hungry and gave away cupcakes as wedding favors. Bailey and Tim, your day was perfect in every day and we were so thankful to be a small part of it! Congratulations!
