Nashville-rooftop reception

Went to a wonderful wedding reception in Nashville last weekend. The view was amazing! Such a great party. Loving the dessert bar! What we liked about the wedding was that is was a true reflection of the bride and groom's taste. I think that makes a wedding extra special.

Keeneland Brunch

I am a little behind on blogging about all of our wedding festivities! Some of my bridesmaids threw us the nicest brunch before Keeneland. We had a blast! It was such a pretty day and we enjoyed seeing so many friends! The next time I am at Keeneland with all of my friends, I will be married!!!!

engagement pictures

We had our engagement pictures taken last week. I LOVE them! I woke up that day and it looked like a tornado was coming. I was nervous because I was having my hair fixed and makeup done. It was windy all day but no rain! We went to Ashland and then Gratz Park. We had so much fun! We love our photographer, Josh Merideth of Bella Grace Studios. He is located in Louisville but traveled to Lexington for our photos. We are so excited to have him photograph the wedding! I am beyond pleased by how the photos turned out!!!

I can't stop looking at them!    Thanks Josh! 

Here are just a few of the pictures he took. More are on his website in his portfolio. 

My makeup was done by Ana Crane Simpson. If you are in Kentucky and need your makeup done... I can't recommend her enough. She is a doll! She has done my makeup twice and it is beyond fabulous. It does not come off. It looks so pretty and natural. My hair guy is Brad Davis at Brittin Tate. It is in Chevy Chase and they have a nice new salon.

i heart fleur de lis!

One of my favorite gifts from my first shower. We love fleur de lis! I received 8 of my tall glasses, 4 of the double old fashioned, 4 napkin rings and a sugar packet holder. The glasses are from The Baker's Rack in Owensboro and Tradewinds in Louisville. The rest is Arthur Court. Since we will be most likely living in Louisville some day, it is perfect!
