Christa & Stephen | Stanford, KY Wedding | Keith & Melissa Photography

ashley-inn-bnb

Weddings don't always have to take a year or more to plan...sometimes they can be planned in six weeks and be amazing!  Christa and Stephen are an adorable and sweet couple that managed to pull off a beautiful wedding in that amount of time.  It was an elegant and classy day that started out with preparations at the stunning Ashley Inn Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster, KY.  It was the perfect setting for a beautiful bride to get ready and outdoors in the yard was where the bride and groom did their first look.  You'll see how cute that was! 

The ceremony and reception took place in the sanctuary of the New Hope Baptist Church in Stanford, KY.  We found out there that the bride and groom and their entire wedding party had homeschooled and attended the LIGHT homeschool co-op there at the church!  Since we homeschool our daughter, Olivia, that was pretty cool for us to discover!  Most of the wedding guests were also homeschool families and I have to say, they know how to party!  And without a drop of alcohol!  ;) 

Christa and Stephen, we had so much fun capturing your wedding day and are grateful that we had the opportunity to get to know you.  We hope you enjoy browsing your sneak peeks!

Prep Location:  The Ashley Inn

Molly & Matt could not have chosen a more perfect Kentucky fall day for their engagement session!  The light, the location...everything was just beautiful!  Molly is in studying to be a Physician's Assistant and Matt is in Medical school so they're a very busy couple!  They are still planning an amazing wedding and we can't wait to shoot it next December at The Grand Reserve!

Aylua & Taylor | Lexington, KY Engagement Session | Keith & Melissa Photography

lexington-ky-engagement-session

This has been one of the most beautiful autumns that Kentucky has seen in awhile!  I have been constantly amazed by how bright and colorful the leaves still are into November.  I'm so thankful for that since we've had several sweet weddings and engagement sessions in late October and early November.  Like this one of Aylua and Taylor!  They are getting married next spring in the Richmond/Berea area and having their wedding reception at the beautiful Boone Tavern in Berea.  They are a sweet couple that are planning a lovely wedding and are both so involved in the wedding day decisions.  We shot on a nice fall morning at sunrise, starting out at the Arboretum and ending up at McConnell Springs in downtown Lexington.  Just look at those colors in the trees!!!

When a husband and wife make God the center of their lives and their marriage, wonderful things can happen. Abby planned a beautiful wedding day that took place on a foggy November morning where it was made clear to us that following Jesus will be their main priority.  Abby and Evan are such a sweet, loving couple that has so much fun together.  They laugh together all the time and what marriage doesn't need laughter?

Florals:  The Craft Nook, Winchester, KY
