Melissa looked absolutely stunning in her gown. Even though it was pretty dismal outside we managed to beat the rain and have just enough time for the session!
When Melissa first called she told me that they were going to have a small wedding on their farm. Well in Kentucky that could mean a LOT of different things. I was unprepared for the GORGEOUS main house and state of the art barns that we would find on the property! Of course I was pleasantly surprised also by just how sweet Melissa and Joe were together. You can just tell when Joe looks at her that he absolutely ADORES Melissa and vice-versa. It was a privilege to work with this fabulous couple and their families. Bridal and Wedding sneak peeks coming soon!
So maybe the hot pink Hummer limo isn’t your style but I cannot imagine ANY occasion in which this BEAUTIFUL 1962 Vintage Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II wouldn’t be perfect! Just imagine… you just said your vows, had that long awaited and kiss and you run from the church through a cloud of bubbles into this gorgeous antique automobile! I can see the photos now! GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This particular vintage car was just recently added to the fleet at Thoroughbred Limousine. Having worked with Thoroughbred MANY times throughout the years I highly recommend them for ALL your wedding transportation needs. If a Rolls Royce isn’t quite your style or you need more room for your large wedding party they have PLENTY of Limos in various styles to suit your big day! No matter what your style from Chrysler 300′s to Chargers to Hummer Limos they have it! They even have the amazing Party Bus!!!!! Let me tell you… I have BEEN inside this and it is pretty AWESOME!

Ok… so I will start off by saying that this post may be a little more image heavy than normal because this couple is a little extra special to us! How could they not be when the BRIDE also happens to be our cousin and ALSO happens to have invited our kiddos to be her flower girl and ring bearers! Needless to say that this wedding day will be full of memories for all of us and will be captured by none other than Troy and myself. (could turn into a complete circus… but we have our fingers crossed! LOL… totally joking… it will be great!) We were invited to Overbrook farm for the first part of the session and I cannot say enough about how QUIET and beautiful it is there. I could live there the rest of my life and be totally happy! There is a new place to explore around every corner. Gorgeous horses, scenery and even some geese that were none too happy we were there! (They hissed at us as we drove by! YIKES!)
Here are a few from Overbrook:
Does she have AMAZINGLY beautiful hair or what?!!!! If my hair were that long I would be in one constant seizure of pain… obviously you can tell I am a short hair kinda gal! LOL The wind off the water was whipping us every which way but we were thankful for it because it was UNSEASONABLY warm 90 degrees that day!!!!! HOLY CARP!
Then there was the WATERFALL! Be still my heart.. to the far left of this image in the shadow you will notice a few geese that were none too happy we were there! They were squawking and hissing! Not very inviting! LOL… I so wish I could take my kids here for a photo. It was just PERFECT!
The we drove around a bit more and climbed to the top of a hill through a grove of trees and on the top of the hill sat this barn. It was literally breathtaking. I have only had my breath taken away a few times in my life and looking through that barn and seeing the TRUE rolling hills of Kentucky in the background was nothing short of amazing!
And then I saw it… every woman has a look. Now I know it sounds silly but truthfully there is a bit of sexiness to be found in ANY bride to be! Heck its teh best time of your life!! You feel most beautiful and in love and it shows! This is Emily’s “look”. Now for those who know her, you know she is normally a BRIGHT smile and happy kinda girl. I personally thinks she looks like Giada…
See it now?! See.. told you! Not only is Emily and amazingly gorgeous, member of ones of the best families on earth, super sweet, totally stylish, but she looks like a celebrity too.. what more could a photographer ask for?
An awesome location… yup… got that too! LOL
After we had fun playing at the farm we headed downtown to the spot where Alex proposed to Emily at Christmas.. I have seen pics of the engagement itself… VERY sweet and thoughtful but I think Alex was freezing his butt off! It was like -10 degrees outside!!! LOL Lucky enough for us.. it was more like 89 degrees this day! Yes, apparently we like to go from one extreme to the other!
And yes a little sexy for the end! So that about does it… I have to say a little “Sorry” to our Uncle John. I know that at some point we were going to have to let you down easy that Emily’s “friend” Alex will, before the end of the year be Emily’s HUSBAND! LOL… I know that they may have had to issue the images to you in small bits John but your little girl is an amazing woman now and we are proud to be a part of her wedding!!
Yes… so we’re pretty proud to be featured, for the second year in a row, as one of Kentucky’s TOP Weddings in the TopsinLex.
