Meet Dana & Chris who were married this summer. Last year I had the pleasure of photographing Dana's sister Sara's wedding, which made this wedding even more enjoyable because I was familiar with the whole family. Chris and Dana wed at the Church of Ascension. Photos began that day with the gentleman giving me all kinds of suggestions. They were a fun bunch that insisted that we do a jumping picture that turned out great. The ladies were all smiles and giggles. They were quick to strike a pose. Dana looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress that she purchased from the wonderful ladies at the Couture Closet Bridal Boutique. After the ceremony, the bridal party hopped on a trolley to travel to the Louisville Marriott East. Photos began with each member of the bridal party dancing into the room. Teague Ridge with Ridgerock Entertainment cued the song "Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon and the happy couple exploded into the room and the guests erupted in cheers. After an incredible plated dinner prepared by the catering staff at the Louisville Marriott East, Audrey Petty the events manager helped with the cake cutting ceremony that lead into wonderful speeches by the bride's sister and groom's brother. The highlight of the evening had to be a choreographed dance number performed by the whole bridal party that ended with Dana jumping into Chris's arms. It was a joyous celebration and I am so happy that I was able to capture yet another Horstman family wedding.
Remember the Snowmeggadon???? That was exactly days before Becki and Chris's wedding. I can't lie I was a little worried, but when the big day rolled around the roads were clear and there were no worries for this Louisville wedding photographer. The snow actually made the photos quite beautiful and unique. The couple chose the Church of Ascension to wed. This church is coming up on its 50th anniversary next year and has gorgeous stain glass windows. After all the family portraits we made our way over to the Woodhaven Country Club. Wedding photographs are always very scenic with their lake view, water fountains, and manicured landscaped golf course. Lisa and the Woodhaven staff was very welcoming and served a delicious dinner. Afterwards, Corey Leonardo with Party Zone Productions kicked off the receptions formal events. The guests got to know the couple a little bit better because of Party Zone's Newlyweds Game. The crowd was in an uproar over the expected and unexpected answers. As always it was a pleasure working with Corey and I love having his packed dance floor to photograph.
Thanks Becki and Chris for including me in your special day and for choosing me to be your Louisville wedding photographer. I wish you all the best!!
