Hi!

I’m living in D.C., but we’re having our wedding in central KY at the end of this month!  If anyone needs any help with vendors, etc., don’t hesitate to message me!

Hi luckyinKY ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m getting married in little ole Mt. Sterling–my hometown growing up–on my grandparents’ farm.  But all of our vendors are from the Lexington area. 

Hope the long engagements mean that your all’s planning is relaxed and easy!

I hope you share some pictures ! Are you going for a rustic look? I think those weddings are so simple and beautiful !

With a long engagement there are too many options and way too much time to second guess!  I hope to sign my photographer contract this week and then forget about it for a couple months–like that will happen!

Well, luckyinKY, I know what you mean, but just try and make those decisions and then let them lie.  There are too many other details to worry about in the end!

I’d be glad to share photographs once the wedding is done.  We’re definitely going for rustic, romantic elegance.  We’re getting married in front of an old barn.  But as my grandfather restores antiques, we’re hanging an old wrought iron chandelier in between the barn doors and then we’re hanging curtains between the doors as well that will sweep onto the ground.  We’ll hang grapevine from the fencing that surrounds the barn and fencing area and use antique gas lanterns hung from shepherd’s crooks around the ceremony area as well.  It will be a tented reception, but our florist is also using antiques there as well–all of my family’s old copper kettles, buckets, etc. to fill with flowers, ice down the wine.  Lots of hydrangea, Monet roses, etc.  I think it will be fun and I’m excited to celebrate my family’s heritage and history in the wedding!

Anyone else looking for a KY photographer, who doesn’t have one already, we’ve been really happy with Amanda Egan so far.  I know how hard it is to find someone local who’s reasonably priced.  I’ll post reviews after the wedding, but she did a free engagement session for us since we booked her for the wedding and I thought the results were great (we’re Cat and Gary):

Thanks luckyinKY!  I’ll definitely post some pics up once we get back from honeymoon in mid-June.

In the meantime, what are you all planning?  Where will you get married and what are the details like?

Lotusmoss, thank you for the local photographer suggestion.  I am trying to help my sister find a photographer for her upcoming wedding at the end of September.  I got married in Lexington two years ago and my biggest disappointment was my photographer.  The pictures in my album are beautiful but he hasn’t been very easy to work with as far as ordering additional pictures.

It sounds like your wedding is going to be absolutely charming.  I hope you will share some of your pictures, as I would love to see an outdoor wedding in Mt. Sterling.  Although we moved from Mt. Sterling when I was 8, some of my mom’s family still lives there.

cfwinston–What a small world!  So nice to hear that someone knows where Mt. Sterling even is located on the map   I’ll definitely post some pics come June.

The great thing about Amanda is that she was willing to negotiate our package to give us the digitals on a CD instead of a wedding album.  As my Fiance and I both have some photo editing experience, and since we wanted to be able to do affordable reprints for lots of our family members, this was the perfect solution.  It’s definitely worth finding a photographer who will do this or negotiating with your photographer to get a digital CD or DVD.  We didn’t have this option for our engagement session photos and they were $12 for a 4×6 (!!!), as opposed to 20 cents or so on Snapfish, or any other online printing service.  We’ll make Blurb photobooks for our parents after the wedding with the digitals.

cfwinston- Emily Simon of Emily Simon Photography is another local option.  Emily was an art major in college and although she’s just getting settled in the photography business, she’s produced some wonderful shots from the various shoots she’s done with families and her brother’s wedding.  Although she wasn’t the primary photographer for the wedding, she did do a lot of nice enhancements on some of the images that came back.  Emily’s website is http://www.emilysimonphotos.com, and although it’s still under construction right now, there’s contact information available to get in touch with her about more information.  She has most of her images up on her photography myspace page until the site is completed, which you can find at http://www.myspace.com/emilysimonphotography.  You could call me a little biased though since she is my best friend ๐Ÿ™‚  Happy photographer hunting!

Lotusmoss: Our details are still a little vague! We are getting married next fall, outside at one of the historical locations in Louisville. We are trying to keep things simple-which is more difficult to pull off than one might think :).

Winston: Check here for some more photographers.
