Anyone who knows me is aware that I am beyond obsessed with horse racing and the Kentucky Derby. Ever since I was 7, I would watch the races with my grandfather and he would drive me crazy by changing the channel to golf right before the race was suppose to start – oh the men in my family!
When my bride and groom started telling me all about their Kentucky Derby themed wedding while we were shooting their engagement session I almost keeled over and died from happiness. A viewing of the Derby at cocktail hour, horse farm venue, fun hats and bow ties…a dream wedding for me!
I love all the little details they thought of that are so them, and so appropriate for the Kentucky Derby. At every table in the reception area they had frames with photos and information about all the Triple Crown winners. Horseshoes served as their seat assignment cards. Ladies donned their lovely hats and gentleman wore bow ties in a vast array of colors (sometimes they even borrowed their date’s hat!).
It was a gorgeous day full of love and family. You could feel how close and kind every person in attendance was, and it was an honor to have been chosen to photograph such a day.
