Mellwood Art Center with John & Casey
As we wrap up 2018, and also celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I can’t help but be completely overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing people that are brought into our lives through this business. What started as an art that Paul and I both enjoyed in college has grown into a company that totally blesses our socks off. Casey and John are the perfect example of clients we feel blessed to now call friends, and reliving their gorgeous day at the Mellwood Art Center in Louisville, Kentucky makes our hearts soar!
These two just got back from Aruba (*cough* not jealous at all *cough*) and as they settle back in to everyday life as newlyweds, I thought it would be the perfect time to take them back down memory lane at Mellwood. We started off the day at Casey’s parents’ home in Louisville. Not only were we instantly greeted with so much hospitality and friendly faces, but the joy in the room was palpable! From the details, to the girls laughter, I knew it was going to be an amazing day.
Emotions ran high all throughout the day. From heartfelt gifts and letters, remembering loved ones, first looks with tissues, sobbing groomsmen, touching toasts and ultimately joy filled belly laughs… it was such a memorable day. So without further ado, enjoy a few of our favorite images from John and Casey’s Louisville, Kentucky Mellwood Art Center Wedding! To the new Mrs. and Mrs. Gray… Paul and I pray that you choose to laugh this loud and love this deep everyday you are together. Marriage is a choice and sometimes it’s hard, but you guys are the real deal. We love you! Congratulations!!
I will forever and ALWAYS be a huge fan of first looks. Not because of the timeline. Not because it gives you more portraits… but because of this raw emotion. These two got to spend MOST of their day together and with their best friends instead of in hiding! They got to speak honest words to each other when they first saw one another. They got to embrace and spend as much time as they needed, and boy, there wasn’t a dry eye watching them!
Now for the moment most wedding parties think I’m crazy… and I love it! Thanks for being great sports, everyone!
Paul and I actually got married at the Mellwood Art Center in this very same room 9 years ago, and it was so much fun to be back in this space so close to our anniversary! (November is a pretty awesome month to be married!) 😉
