For these Kentucky nuptials, Jaclyn Journey designed a not so typical barn wedding…and we’re not so mad at that. Offsetting the ruggedness of Long Ridge Farm, peony-filled floral garland and soft sheer curtains draped the interior. Every last detail is spilling with gorgeousness , and pics from Amy Campbell Photography are sitting pretty right here.

From Amy Campbell Photography
…Jaimie worked with the talented Jaclyn Journey to design a space for her wedding that wasn’t the typical wedding in a barn. Gorgeous natural elements paired with elegant fabric and loose blooms transformed the space. She had all three barn doors draped with pink peony floral garlands. The tables were linen with a loose lace runner. The seating chart, wedding programs, menus, and invitations were all printed on a sheer vellum with hand drawn art work and lettering. The ceremony had dark wood chairs with light wood handmade floral wooden box stands in a lighter wood. Jaimie was very close to her grandmother who loved butterflies and to remember her, she had a butterfly pin in her hair and then the flowers on the front ceremony row featured fabric butterflies. They ordered custom patterned ties and bowties for the men. One of her best friends is a guy and she had him stand on her side and he wore a pink bowtie to distinguish him from the groomsman’s ties. During the ceremony they braided a three fabric ribbons together to symbolize them coming together. One of the most amazing elements of the day was her designer dress (Claire Pettibone “Kristene”).

From Lauren Chitwood…Through this long arduous winter we have all been experiencing , Lauren Chitwood, LBB Member, and her team decided to find the beauty in the cold with this sweet inspired photo shoot. Photographed by Amy Campbell, with a sparkling coat of ice over the Bluegrass the design team had a vision of warm luxury with a vintage mink, seasonal greenery, and vibrant shades of pomegranate and peach.
The bride wore a tailored lace gown with a detachable tulle skirt designed by Tara Keely. Earrings, headband, necklace and bracelets were sourced at Anthropologie and jeweled belt is from designer Kelly Faetaini graciously provided by Twirl Boutique. Ana Crane expertly crafted a convertible up-do that was easily taken down for a romantic but sexy half up- half down look. Highlighting our beautiful brides piercing eyes with lashes and smoky lid is a great dramatic look that transitioned from day to evening while photographing beautifully against the snow.
The sweet hear table was delicately crafted atop an antique leather top table with gold brushed tableware sliced pomegranates and full floral garland. The design team brought together the warm tones of pink Asiatic lilies, pink protea and peach Juliet garden roses and paired them with varieties eucalyptus, pine and spruce. The pussy willow stems added to the floral design were just enough to flirt with the suspicion that spring was seemingly just around the corner. Among the blooms and textured greenery, the team placed a cobalt blue Jim Beam bottle circa 1960 and a brass antique vanity stand to hold the bouquet thus creating a combination of perfect elements to carry through the essence vintage sophistication.
Five Dot Design, LBB member, created a striking invitation suite inspired by the warm gold tones and the deep plum hues. An elaborate crest monogram in gold complimented the regal table scape and a formal feeling that just feels so right in the snow.
This shoot make us just want to appreciate the crisp elegance of winter just a little bit longer.
