Aaron + Annie | A Timeless Wedding in Murray, Kentucky

Posted in: Uncategorized

A couple weeks ago I drove down to Murray, Kentucky for the weekend to shoot Aaron and Annie’s wedding. For the whole week before the wedding, the weather forecast was calling for rain and it wasn’t just a little bit of rain. It was calling for a lot of rain which naturally had Annie a tad bit nervous for her wedding day. I kept telling her not to worry about the rain and to just enjoy the wedding day no matter what happened. In the meantime, Annie had called around to a couple places where we could shoot indoors if we absolutely had to. Turns out, we didn’t need to go to those places because it literally stopped raining for the few hours during the time we had set aside for portraits. It was a miracle!

The ceremony and reception all took place at the Murray Women’s Club. It’s this gorgeous stone house with lots of character, tall windows and a fireplace to die for! Originally the ceremony was going to take place out in the backyard but with the rain in the forecast they moved it inside and set up in front of the fireplace decorated with fall foliage, candles and lanterns. The tables were also decorated with lanterns and lots of white flowers and candles. I loved the clean look to the table decorations. I always tell my brides that weddings end up happening the way that they’re suppose to and I gotta tell you it was beautiful watching them get married in a more intimate space surrounded by candlelight. Since the upstairs isn’t large enough to have a dance space, the reception took place in the basement. This venue was perfect in so many ways. If you wanted to talk without yelling over the loud music you could go upstairs or out onto the walkout patio. If you wanted to dance you stayed in the basement. 
I’m so honored that Aaron and Annie wanted me to be apart of their big day. I know Annie’s family pretty well but it was nice getting to meet all of Aaron’s family too. Everyone was such great company and I had the best time. I simply could not pick a few favorites, so naturally prepare yourselves for a long blog post of beautiful pictures. Aaron and Annie, I hope you had a wonderful time on your honeymoon to Hawaii!!!

I’m going to start you off with some wedding details.

This bathroom is probably my favorite room in the whole house LOL (but I love bathrooms).

Aaron’s aunt let us use her house for the first look and for Annie to get ready. It’s the most beautiful home I’ve ever been in! And that painting is kind of perfect so I hung Annie’s dress next to it.

Time for the first look.

So sweet.

This is why I love fall.

Look at those colors!

Another stop at the ‘shoe tree’ again. If you do not know what this tree represents then click here.

Another favorite. Kinda screams Gatsby to me for some reason.

Annie, you are so beautiful and timeless.

Love this shot.

The couch is Aaron’s grandmother’s and it is the most awesome piece of furniture ever for weddings!

Aaron and Annie met while in college so naturally I had to find something with the MSU letters.

Looking fierce ladies!

My new favorite bridal party picture! The couch made all the difference.

Gorgeous venue!

Such a beautiful venue.

Annie and her MOH Lindsey made apple butter for the favors.

Look at that fireplace decor! LOVED it.

Time for the ceremony.

MARRIED!

I loved how Annie’s dress twirled.
