Brooke and Chase tied the knot at Pinecroft at Crosley Estate earlier this month, and the day could not have been more perfect! These two reconnected after hitting it off at a mutual friend’s house years earlier, and the second time was the charm. To celebrate their two year dating anniversary, they planned a trip to Red River Gorge where they rented a cabin and set off to explore Daniel Boone National Forest together. After some suspicious questions about what they should wear for the hike and his insistence that Brooke walk in front of him (since the ring was in his pocket), they started along the trail up to a secluded outlook. Chase surprised her by dropping to one knee and asking her to marry him, and the rest is history!
Family is such a priority for these two, and it was evident in every moment of their day. Immediately following Brooke’s dance with her father, her grandfather requested an unscheduled dance with her. Their DJ, Vince, pulled up a perfect song for them and Brooke proceeded to share the absolutely sweetest dance with each of her grandfathers. Those types of unscripted moments are the things that make a wedding day magical, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house watching the precious interaction.
Brooke and Chase, I know you each cared so deeply that your friends and family enjoyed themselves and had fun. I am happy to report that everyone in that room felt so cherished by you, and I hope you felt just how loved you each are by everyone who knows you. Pinecroft at Crosley Estate was the most beautiful backdrop for each special moment you two incorporated in your celebration. Thank you for trusting us to capture your best day ever!

The Bell Event Centre hosted the most incredible party to celebrate a beautiful story that began just over two years ago. After getting to know each other on Bumble, Andrew and Laura went on their first date to MadTree Brewing. They bonded over their CPA careers and found out that same day that Laura had been approved to adopt a sweet puppy named Renzo. Over the course of the next year, they traveled together, met each other’s families, and enjoyed plenty of red wine and Mexican food.
Andrew and Laura told me they love their friends and family. That is the understatement of the year. These two love their people fiercely, and it’s obvious how much they prioritize those relationships after spending any amount of time with them. On their wedding day they stood at the back of the crowd hugging and greeting people for the first half of the reception, and they spent the second half lighting up the dance floor. They even went out of their way to provide sweet activities for their kids in attendance at each table so they wouldn’t be bored. On the day they got engaged, Andrew popped the question with Renzo’s help at their favorite park to walk their energetic pup – and I got to hide in the bushes and capture the moment! It was perfect and intimate and perfectly THEM. But he knew Laura would want to celebrate with the friends and family they love most. So he took her out to celebrate at their favorite restaurant while all of their people gathered at The Transept to surprise her with an incredible engagement party that very same night.
If there’s one thing I never get tired of, it’s a couple that wants to spend their wedding day TOGETHER. From the first look to the dance floor, these two filled their day with laughter and friendship and togetherness. Laura, I will never forget your dad coming up to me in the middle of the dance floor at The Bell Event Centre and telling me how beautiful your mom is. (I think his actual words were, “Look at her! My wife is hot!”) What a foundation of love you are building on from each of your families. Each of your sweet relationships with your parents, and each of their strong marriages, paint a picture of love that stands the test of time. Andrew and Laura, thank you for including us in the magic of your big day. You are already building the most beautiful future together.

The Bell Event Center provided the perfect backdrop for Caroline and Jake’s best day ever! These two met on their first day of job orientation as nurses and began getting together after work for Thursday trivia nights. Six months later, as Caroline puts it, Jakob finally made a move and the rest is history.
When it came time to plan the perfect proposal, Jake decided to pop the question on a walk with their dog around the lake at one of the their favorite parks… but the timing never worked out. He then convinced her to go for a drive around a couple local parks, secretly scoping out the perfect spot but couldn’t find the right one. Finally, he took her home and began pacing the house and acting strange. He eventually went to the kitchen to get himself together, came back to the living room where Caroline was sitting, and gave her a handwritten letter with tears in his eyes. While she read it, he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of their lives together. Another beautiful example of an imperfect moment turning out perfectly.
From getting ready at Caroline’s childhood home to finishing out the night with a packed dance floor, every minute of their wedding day was perfect. These two have so much fun together, and they genuinely make each other better. Listening to their priest share the sweet words they each wrote to each other during their premarital counseling had me getting emotional behind the lens! Their day was a scorcher, but they were absolute troopers through the heat. And between their gorgeous church and the architecture at The Bell Event Center, Caroline and Jakob treated their guests to incredible views both inside and out.
Caroline and Jakob, thank you for trusting us with these precious memories. We had so much fun with your family and friends and absolutely loved celebrating you two!

Morgan and Kyle had a beautiful faith-filled Spindletop Hall wedding. I’ve actually known Morgan since she was in middle school and I was her cross country coach, so this was an extra special one for us. In fact, these two first met each other at Morehead State University where Kyle played football and Morgan was a distance runner on the cross country team. Shortly after they met, Kyle decided to transfer schools to pursue his football career. He didn’t stay long before he came back to Morehead State for a girl.
Four years later, after a surprise Pawley Island proposal on the beach with two of her closest friends there to help pull it off, these college sweethearts started planning their wedding at The Club at UK’s Spindletop Hall. The Morehead State Athletic Team Chaplain, who knew them both from their college days, made the trip to Lexington to perform their ceremony. Close family friends prayed over them in a quiet moment during the wedding. In every little detail, they prioritized keeping God at the center of their relationship and marriage.
In addition to making sure everything was meaningful and beautiful, Morgan and Kyle were intentional about which customs they incorporated into their wedding celebration. Exactly one month before they tied the knot, these two buried a bottle of bourbon, following a southern tradition thought to keep the rain away on their wedding day. Although they initially had a hard time finding the shovel and then the bourbon, eventually they were able to dig it back up and enjoy a shot together after they said, “I do.” (And their wedding day remained sunny from start to finish!) From the gorgeous white Bentley that Morgan and her dad made their entrance in to the macaroni and cheese bites they couldn’t wait for guests to get their hands on, every minute of their day was perfectly curated for them.
Morgan, I know pictures are a big deal to you. Preserving these moments and being able to look back on them forever. Telling your story for generations to come. I pray each one takes you back to a different beautiful memory of the day your forever love story officially began. Congratulation, you two – the best is yet to come!
