It’s takes a lot to render me speechless, you all. This wedding does just that. As I sit outside today, enjoying a glorious 75 degree and breezy Friday, I am truly just overwhelmed with joy. I’m not joyful because of circumstances, but because of such a rooted identity and the abundance that comes from that security. This past year has been one of so much growth and personal development, and it’s been a really hard, yet joy-filled journey!
I know, I know, get to the amazing couple I’m sharing about today, right? But you know what? Looking at these images, and remembering what a spectacular day last Saturday was, just has me realizing how truly thankful I am!! I’m giddy getting to share these with all of you and I’m so humbled by the incredible adventures this business continues to bring us.
Leah and Jay met Derby week in Louisville. I know what you’re thinking, ‘how romantic!’ Horses, hats, Mint Juleps, beautiful skies, our old Kentucky Home at it’s finest! But really… it was probably closer to hot asphalt, honking cars and crabby people, beacause that’s what behind the scenes looked like as they were working. They had never really talked before, because they were on different shifts, but getting put together on the same post for Oaks and Derby led to their first date soon after. They quickly knew they were a great match and 6 months later, Jay took Leah to Floyds Fork where her sweet dog Beretta met them with a “Will you marry me?” dog tag around her neck. The rest is history. Saturday was STUNNING, and full of the sweetest people! You can always truly get to know someone on wedding day… their joy for life or control issues or frustration all come out, with the stress of a wedding. These two? NOTHING. BUT. JOY!!
This is probably the longest sneak peek I’ve ever shared on here, but you all- it’s simply inspiring. Leave Leah and Jay some love in the comments and go enjoy so CUTE Alpacas!! (Oh yeah, and a super cute couple.) Happy Friday!!
