Emily & Austin | Immaculate Conception Church Lagrange, Ky., University of Louisville, Seelbach Hilton
After I spent a chilly morning with Austin and Emily this spring, shooting their engagement pictures, I was super pumped for their wedding. These two are easy going and full of gentle fun. They are both so present with their people, a trait that will surely serve them well in marriage. I loved being with them on their wedding day as they focused on spending their time and attention on others and really getting to enjoy their people and celebrate with them. So sweet! Our morning started at Immaculate Conception Church in LaGrange, Ky., Emily's home church. The first look Emily shared with her father was so dear and left them both glowing. Loved seeing him, see Emily for the first time in her gown - so proud. After the ceremony, the bridal party hopped in a limo and headed to the University of Louisville's campus. We made pictures around the school of engineering where the couple met and attended school. Loved their choice of red for the bridal party as UofL's plantings all echoed their color scheme! Once we wrapped up some joyful portraits at various places around campus we headed downtown for the reception.
Once we got to the Seelbach, the bridal party had a few minutes to make some classic portraits and refresh with some hors d'oeuvres before they headed up to the top floor to celebrate. I loved how elegant and classic the reception space was. The golden room was filled to the brim with smiling friends and family ready to enjoy and celebrate with Emily and Austin. The words that were shared that evening were a strong testament to both Emily and Austin's kind, joyful and fun characters. After a plated dinner, the cake was cut, champagne popped and the guests danced the night away.
Emily and Austin, Thanks so much for choosing me to tag along on your big day. I truly enjoyed meeting your family and friends and so enjoyed the ease of your love and the richness of your relationships with those you love, who clearly love you both deeply.
