We had the honor of photographing Haley and Cade's beautiful Wedding Day! We captured moments for the new Mr. and Mrs. Brown from start to finish at the lovely venue The Place at Gilead in Glendale, KY. This venue is so perfect! Me and Heather, my second photographer, were very excited to get to work. The structure and placement of the buildings flowed so well! When we arrived we greeted the Groom, checked out the reception area. Then made the short walk to greet the bride. Haley greeted me like an old friend. She wore the biggest smile while the awesome ladies finishing up her hair and makeup buzzed around her like two fairy godmothers perfecting her final touches. We got to work as we had two long hours before the ceremony started. I say long because when you book a venue where no one has to leave, it adds so much value to your timeline!
The high sun was beaming down the brightest golden light on us. Mr. Brown, with his sensitive eyes, stood at the alter nervously waiting to see his bride! When he turned to see Haley it was the most adorable first-look moment. Cade did a little jig with his legs while squinting/smiling at his dear bride! (Squintmiling? Smiluinting?) Their Ceremony was one to be admired, short and meaningful. They braided three strands of rope to symbolize their union and sealed it with a kiss! We immediately headed to a nice shaded area for portrait formals. The reception area is by far one of my most favorite venues! The doors at the back of the venue create a lovely glow of light flowing in until sun down. Which was a dream to work in, as the DJ drastically changed the lights with every traditional moment that passed.
It was a joy working with The Brown and Johnson Family! These families knew how to have a good time! They were busting out their best moves on the dance floor! I can't thank Haley and Cade enough for letting me steal them from the reception a couple of times to take some dreamy sunset images and again to have a little sparkler fun! It was a real joy and honor to capture their special day. I cant wait to finish editing their wedding images. But for now please enjoy a BIG sneak peek!
