How old were you when you met your spouse? I know I’ve asked this question before, but I just love Abby and Clint’s story! They both grew up in the same small town of Springfield, Ky, attended the same Catholic grade school (K-8th) and the same Catholic church. (The same church they got married in!) Growing up as best friends with his youngest sister, Anna, they always joked about Abby’s grade school crush on her older brother, Clint. Never would they have imagined that after numerous talks about marrying him and becoming real life sisters, that it would actually happen!
Clint and Abby’s wedding day was filled with so much love and family. When we met over coffee to chat about their day, they were the first couple I’ve had that said, ‘the biggest thing we want our guests to walk away with, is how much we cherish and honor our family’. I was tearing up!
As you look through their images, keep an eye out for some amazing family heirloom details. From her grandmothers settee (sofa) and a handmade sweetheart table, the ancestral pictures lining the aisle of the church, the bouquet wrapped in one of her grandmother’s old nightgowns, to the homemade family recipe dessert table, this day is sure to give you all the warm fuzzies!
The girls started the day in a beautiful B & B called the Cinnamon House. It was a gorgeous venue with historic charm.
Above, you can see details of her grandmother’s nightgown wrapping her bouquet. Such a lovely way to hold her grandma close to her heart all day long.
These are some of the family pictures that adorned the aisle of the church. I loved looking at all the old wedding photos! Such a unique idea, that I’ve never see done!
One of my favorite candid moments of the day! I caught both of the mother’s watching their children during the first dance… oh the love and care in those faces are just precious!
This is the head table made my hand for the wedding day, and the tea set belonged to Abby’s mother and was given to her by Abby’s grandmother. The dessert table was also one of the most unique things I have seen. Family members contributed homemade dessert recipes, which were in turn made into a recipe book for the guest favors! Of course, we had to try them all. 😉
While there’s a ton of fun dancing the night away shots, we’ll end the blog here for now. This gorgeous day wouldn’t have been possible without some excellent vendors! A big shout out to everyone who was apart of making this day so special:
