Kristin + Robert | Lexington Wedding Photographer

December 3, 2011

Ask anyone in Lexington what they think about their city….odds are you won’t hear one bad word about it.  It’s southern, sophisticated, charming, yet laid back. There is a little bit of everything in Lex and one of the best parts of the city is the people.  You can literally be in the country one minute riding a horse on a sprawling estate and in less than 10 minutes you can be downtown experiencing the urban life.  You don’t have to tell Kristin and Robert that Lexington, Kentucky is one of the greatest places on earth.  They are both University of Kentucky grads (and HUGE fans)  and embrace every part of this beautiful city and culture.  Their wedding was at Christ the King Cathedral and their reception was at Lexington Country Club.  Their wedding was a little bit of everything…just like Lexington:  southern, sophisticated, charming, yet laid back.  There were so many people dancing and having a blast- the Ford’s really know how to have a party!  Just see for yourself!
Kristin got her b-maids these adorable monogrammed robes.  Ana Crane Simpson with Applied Cosmetics…this woman is magic.  Hands-down the best makeup artist in the world. Yup- in the world! When I got engaged, she was the 1st vendor I booked! She is that special!The b-maids dresses came from Twirl.  Again, another vendor I used.  Ty at Twirl is the best!  Check them out! How cute is this peanut?!  Kristin had so many girls helping her…good job B-maids!!!One of my favorite moments on a wedding day is the b-maid clap after the bride is all dressed.  Love the happiness and celebration that they are showing that their friend is getting married!!Kristin taking one last look in the mirror before going to see Robert. Brides who do first impressions, rock! 🙂Robert seeing his bride for the first timeBenefit of having your reception at Lexington Country Club, you can take pics out on the greens AND they provided golf carts for the bride and groom, the photographers, and the videographers. Awesome!We were really worried about the rain…. there was a short break and we were all cheering. We hopped on the golf carts and took advantage of the break on the golf course at Lexington Country Club– and then the rain came again!  We were so grateful for the break in the clouds!How cute are these little ones?!  Kristin, its time to confess….I stole the idea of the flower crown (I’m sure there is a better name for it) for my flower girl.  🙂She is about to burst from happiness!!Aaaahhh!  Their looks at eachother just melt me…I love when a bride and groom are truly present in the moment.  Okay, how cute is Kristin?!  If she wasn’t on Robert’s arm I feel like she might have stopped to socialize. ;o) I always recycle the flower girls flowers for the flower toss!Grooms cake- SO awesome!  Go big blue!Their first dance was full of whirls and twirls…and then the party started….Burning Las Veags was AMAZING!  I felt like I was at a concert- they rocked the house!Kristin’s brothers are a HOOT!I thought this might be my favorite pic from their dancing at the end of the night and then I saw the one below this one…hilarious and nice catch Robert!The groomsmen serenaded Kristin with Backstreet Boys I want it that way. And here was an idea Kristin’s mom proposed and I thought it was brilliant.  Since Kristin and 4 of her b-maids were on the UK dance team, they played the UK fight song and busted out in this:  A firework send off- what an appropriate send-off for such an amazing wedding! Kristin and Robert had our photobooth company there- everyone loved it!!! Kristin & Robert we had a blast shooting your wedding!  It was an epic event that won’t be forgotten and most likely won’t be topped.  🙂  Thanks for letting us photograph the most important day of your lives!
