With a fireside ceremony, candles everywhere and a color palette of marsala, silver and gold, this gorgeous Bride and Groom became husband and wife on the same date they had met 22 years earlier.

From The Bride…When Brad and I decided to marry we envisioned a small wedding, immediate family only, in our home state of Kentucky. Life and work had taken us away but home to us was still Kentucky with its beautiful horse farms, southern people and where all our families lived. We are so thankful we found GlenLary Estate. It is the most beautiful working horse farm with a southern plantation house and cabin that enabled all family to comfortably stay the night after the wedding and celebrate to our hearts content. Our planner, Alicia with Great Expectations, truly took care of everything and created exactly what I envisioned and more for a small intimate winter wedding with an abundance of flowers in marsala, silver and gold, candles and firelight. We couldn’t have been more delighted with every detail, especially the beautiful sitting room where the ceremony was held in front of the fireplace, and above all how kind and attentive everyone was to us and our families from the moment we arrived. We were able to truly celebrate together in the most gorgeous and relaxed setting. We wanted a full reception dinner and it was delicious. We had hoped for a little snow for our winter wedding and boy did Mother Nature deliver!!! Everything went as originally planned and we were able to say I Do on the day we met 22 years prior. Our families said it was the most beautiful, relaxed and intimate wedding they had ever attended. They loved being able to spend the day together getting ready, having the estate all to ourselves, truly enjoying the ceremony and dinner and each other.

From Jaclyn Journey…Skye & Trey’s Hermitage Farm nuptials were chic, effortless, stylish, and comfortable. Both the bride and groom are Kentucky natives but live in NYC and wanted their out of town guests to experience the beauty of Kentucky’s rolling hills at the state’s oldest working horse farm.
The bride and groom hosted a weekend at Churchill Downs and Kentucky distilleries for their guests.
Skye walked down the aisle to Pretty Woman played by a bluegrass band on the porch of the historic 1800’s farm house. Her dad welded the flower covered arch they were married under.Skye chose punches of red (the signature color of Hermitage Farm) coral, peach, and pops of ivory for her color palate. She was married at the height of peony season so we were able to create lush arrangements with bold blooms.
We created a custom stamp illustration (High Fancy Paper) of their dog Louie for their wedding invitations
Skye surprised her groom with a boxwood wall for photos during cocktail hour and dinner. I surprised Skye with a wooden cut out of their custom monogram smack dab in the middle of the wall that could be removed and taken home as a little piece of their wedding.The groom created a custom bourbon bar for his out of town guests to partake in Kentucky tradition.Their late night chicken snack was driven in all the way from their hometown of Henderson Kentucky as a surprise to all their guests.
