Kentucky Wedding Venue, Starlit Heights in Lancaster, KY

Kentucky Wedding Venue, Starlit Heights in Lancaster, KY

We had the pleasure of going out to Lancaster last week to visit a new Kentucky wedding venue, Starlit Heights.  The coordinator, Amber, was so kind to give us a tour of the location and let us know more about what they offer.  The venue has an open air pavilion that would be perfect for wedding receptions as well as other events.  The setting overlooks miles of gorgeous Kentucky farmland and a cute little pond is one of the focal points.  There are several options for your ceremony location and portrait possibilities are endless on the 9+ acres!  There are wooded areas that would be so pretty in photos!  We can definitely envision beautiful engagement photos being shot here!  One of the highlights is Burdette Knob, an amazing overlook that would be a super romantic place for a proposal or an elopement and Amber would be happy to help you set that up!  

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

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
