The Ashley Inn Tea Party Wedding :: Lexington KY Wedding Photographer
The Ashley Inn was the perfect setting for this beautiful tea party wedding. Since Shelby was a little girl she dreamed of a wedding near a plantation home, with lots of floral decor. The Ashley Inn made that dream a reality when she married the love of her life.
The day was absolutely perfect. It may have rained all day, but that didn’t stop us. It happens. Rainy weddings just happen. For some reason, this summer it has happened often (insert sad face). I am beyond thankful for brides like Shelby that trust me, and just go with the flow. Nothing matters that day except for the fact that you are about to marry the love of your life. Shelby and Drew knew this, and didn’t let the rain ruin a thing!
This wedding was photographer heaven. Beautiful venue, beautiful couple, beautiful details (Did I mention Shelby wore a tea length wedding dress? Oh, yes she did!! ), and beautiful love. Tired of me saying beautiful yet? It was just gorgeous! And the moments that tore at my heart strings all day…ugh!
What you may not know, is that the little flower girl is my cousin. Watching her beam at Shelby and welcome new family into her life just did me in. I don’t always cry at weddings (Hah! That’s a joke) but this wedding had me tearing up several times throughout the day. The father daughter first look, Aubryn seeing Shelby in her gown for the first time, and the special moment she shared with her mom.
This wedding wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team that helped pull it together. Thank you to the following vendors:
