I’ve always considered myself a neutral loving lady, that is until I saw this pretty lil’ celebration from Kelli Lynn Photography. Filled with saturated blooms and pretty pops of color, it’s enough to convert even the starkest color fearing femme to fall for a few fresh hues. See it all for yourself in The Vault!

From Kelli Lynn Photography… After meeting when Lauren was 16 years old and Aaron was 18, these two love birds dated 4 years when Aaron asked Lauren to marry him on top of a hill overlooking the property that Lauren grew up on in Eastern Kentucky. Lauren knew that she didn’t want to have a long engagement, so after Aaron proposed last fall, they set the date for April 23rd, 2016.
The week of this wedding, everyone prayed that there would be no April showers. The morning of the wedding, we were blessed with clouds, but no rain. With the wedding beginning mid-day and all photos being taken prior to the ceremony, an overcast morning was perfect! This sweet couple are dear friends of mine and when they asked me to photograph their wedding I was beyond thrilled. This bohemian inspired wedding was filled with beautiful florals and was full of color. Lauren wanted to incorporate a lot of flowers and greenery that would give a very natural and organic feel.
Aaron and Lauren’s love is so contagious and their wedding day was filled with nothing but joy and laughter! The couple, the wedding party, family and all the guests were such a pleasure to work with and makes my photographer heart so very happy!

If the glow from this ceremony’s cackling fire doesn’t warm your heart, this Bride and Groom’s story and vision for their big day will: a small, immediate-family-only celebration in Kentucky. 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.
