Dan & Kristen || Versailles, KY Wedding


January 29, 2020

Michael and I had been looking forward to Dan and Kristens wedding for months! These two are such a lovely couple, they adore each other and are just two of the kindest, most thoughtful people. I (obviously) photographed the wedding and Michael got to officiate it. It was the first time the two of us got to work together so it added an extra element of sweetness to the day! But back to the stars of the day! Dan and Kristens winter wedding had some not so winter weather… it was a rare 70 degree day in January and it rained every bit of it.  Luckily for us all The Galerie in Versailles, KY was a perfect spot. The whole space is absolutely stunning and the guests didn’t have to venture back out – they all got to stay put from ceremony to the end of the night.

The bride and groom along with their bridal parties and families were so much fun to be around and there was so much peace over the whole day, even with the unfortunate weather. Kennedy, Dan and Kristens little girl, added so much joy and was the sweetest flower girl/ring keeper. While the girls were getting ready she never left Kristens side and no one could help but smile watching her get dolled up with a little bit of lip gloss and mascara – the girl knew exactly what she wanted and told the make up artist exactly that! Kristen decided to do a first look with her dad and there was not a dry eye in the room watching them have a minute before he walked her down the aisle.

The reception was an absolute blast, I’m fairly sure Kristen’s dad never left the dance floor. He walked from table to table inviting everyone to come and dance, that man has some contagious joy! Kristen and Dan have some pretty fun family and friends and it was so fun to watch the dance floor never be empty. Several members of the bridal party gave speeches that were thoughtful and hilarious… every part of their reception was so sweet. My cheeks were hurting from smiling the whole day. Everyone there was nothing but thrilled for these this couple!

I was grateful at the end of the night Dan and Kristen were up for sneaking outside to get a few portraits surrounded by some small-town charm. The rain held off for about this 10 minute window which was all we needed!
