Meet Jennifer and Ashley. They are getting married next October at The Foundry at Glassworks. We enjoyed a fall evening taking engagement photos in Nulu on Market Street and then at the Parklands at Floyd's Fork. I had such an enjoyable evening getting to know these two better. We found out that we all had a great love for Taco Punk and were crushed when they closed. I could talk about this in great length, but I will only say that my heart broke when I could not longer order their guacamole and queso. Anyway, I am super stoked about Jennifer and Ashley's wedding next fall and being able to photograph at one of my very favorite venues again, The Foundry at Glassworks. Below is just a few of my favorites from that Louisville engagement session :)
Meet Amanda & Alex. They were married this summer at The Foundry at Glassworks. It was a beautiful day with sunny skies and just enough breeze to give the pictures an attractive wind blown look. The pink bouquets and men's pink ties were poppin' against the formal dark black dresses and suits the bride and groom had picked out making the photos look gorgeous. The flower girl and ring bearer were so cute they almost stole the show. The ring bearer was a little hesitant to walk down the aisle but his Uncle Alex knew the trick. He bribed him with a roll of smarties once he reached the end of the aisle. Amanda looked stunning with her long blonde hair and beautiful smile as she beamed walking down the aisle to her husband-to-be. After the ceremony we headed into the reception since we had taken most of the pictures beforehand. The Foundry at Glassworks large reception venue was awash with pink. Fleur de Lis Events & Design created some stunning large vases of pink roses and orchids drawing everyone eyes to the centerpieces on the tables. Cory Leonardo with PartyZone Productions kicked off the formal events after dinner with a Newly Wed Game giving all the guests an opportunity to get to know the couple just a little bit better. This always makes for great fun and gets lots of laughs. The cake cutting ceremony was somewhat tame with Amanda just smearing a bit of cake on Alex's face. Alex went first and had a little bit more restraint. Cory knew just the right music to play to keep the dance floor packed and the party going well into the night.
Alex and Amanda thanks for including me in your special day. I enjoyed being your Louisville wedding photographer and wish you many years of happiness!!!
Meet Josh and Brittany. I had the pleasure of photographing their Louisville wedding this past May. They met at the University of Louisville and we actually photographed their engagement session on campus. They now both work on a college campus in Texas. Brittany & Josh entrusted Paul Latham and Alex Hunnicutt with Fleur de Lis Events & Design to design their whole wedding at The Foundry at Glassworks and surprise them on the wedding day with the final result. Paul & Alex referenced Brittany's Pinterest page and knew that her favorite color was pink. The couple was absolutely blown away with their ceremony and reception decor. I have included quite a few decor pictures below because it was so over-the-top gorgeous. The reception venue reminded me of an outdoor piazza including vibrant green trees, string bulb lights, beautiful towering pink floral arrangements, and tablecloths offering a little glitz and glamour. Once again Fleur de Lis Events & Design wowed each and every guest with their original designs.
Brittany & Josh chose to do a first look before the ceremony in order to take most all of the pictures beforehand leaving more time for them to visit with their guests. We took this opportunity to walk around the block to Main Street. The Foundry at Glassworks weddings are conveniently located near museum row. We strolled to the Hillerich and Bradsby building, the Slugger Museum, and the Science Center. It was quite hot that day, so we made sure to take a couple breaks in between.
Brittany and Josh- Thanks for entrusting me to capture one of the most special days of your life. I enjoyed being your Louisville wedding photographer and wish you many years of happiness. Here a just a few of my favorite photos of the day.
Janelle & Chris were wed at one of my favorite venues The Foundry at Glassworks. It is always a joy to work at this contemporary event space that is so convenient in downtown Louisville and has a very welcoming staff. The couple chose to rent two lofts in the Glassworks building for prep that provided a great modern backdrop for pictures. They were joined by family and friends to witness their marriage vows in event space two in the Foundry. Afterwards, we boarded a bus to venture down to the Big Four Bridge for bridal party portraits. This bridge was special to the couple because this is where Chris popped the question and Janelle said yes. We were all very fortunate because rain and gloomy clouds threatened to interrupt the day but luckily it held off until we returned to the Foundry. Wedding receptions are always beautiful in event space one with a splash of color on the walls that is reflected in the floor. The venue was pretty in pink with towering floral centerpieces drawing everyone's eye to the elegant table decor. There were heartfelt speeches from family members, a very respectful cake cutting ceremony, and the dance floor was spirited with guests joining in the celebration.
Janelle & Chris - I enjoyed being part of your very special wedding day. Thanks for choosing me to be your Louisville wedding photographer and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
Meet Alex and Amanda. These two will be wed this July at The Foundry at Glassworks (which just happens to be one of my favorite venues to photograph). It was a beautiful spring day for their engagement session. The dogwoods were in bloom and it was beginning to look like spring had arrived. We started the evening off in Saint James Court. It was the perfect place for perfectly manicured landscapes, historic homes, and of course the beautiful fountain. Afterwards, we headed down to the waterfront. Once we reached the Big Four Bridge we quickly realized it was soooooooo much more windy down on the water. Amanda had quite the time with her beautiful blonde locks blowing in the gusty wind, but the images turned out great. I am looking forward to being their Louisville wedding photographer and being a part of their special day at The Foundry at Glassworks.
What an incredible wedding Corey and Karen had at The Foundry at Glassworks. The girls got ready in one of the lofts above the Foundry providing a perfect place for beautiful natural light to stream in. Karen and Corey chose to do a first look before the ceremony in order to get most all of the pictures taken beforehand. Karen was stunning in her dress and you can tell by Corey's expression he was blown away. The Foundry offers two event spaces. The smaller of the two provided a beautiful space for their ceremony. The altar was decorated with towering orchids and a lit drapery designed by Fleur de Lis Events & Design. The bride and groom wrote their own vowels making the ceremony even more special. The reception was held in The Foundry's event space one, which can hold up to 350 people. Again Alex and Paul with Fleur de Lis did an amazing job of designing an fantastic reception that wowed guests with all the details. They even hung chandeliers over the dance floor. DJ Prizm kept the dance floor packed. It was a pleasure spending the day with these two.
Corey & Karen - thanks for choosing me to be your Louisville photographer and I wish you all the best.
