Neil & Kaylee: Richwood on the River Outdoor Wedding Louisville KY

A Richwood on the River outdoor wedding Louisville KY

None of us knew what 2020 would bring. For Neil & Kaylee, they got engaged and planned for a beautiful 2020 May wedding. Unfortunately, circumstances forced them to postpone to June, but oh my what the perfect day it was. A Richwood on the River outdoor wedding in Louisville, Ky was the perfect pandemic venue. Everything was outdoors. The light was amazing and the people were even better. This was a real celebration in a hard, confusing time.

A short gushing of their lovely day

On their wedding day, Kaylee got ready in a beautiful classic bridal suite on the second floor. Those historic bay windows had my jaw on the floor. Gorgeous. Kaylee had many bridesmaids, mom, step mom, Neil’s mom, and sweet grandma all there with her getting ready. It was a special morning! These preceremony photos are so of my favorites, ever. The emotions, colors, light… all just light my heart on fire. These are precious, precious moments captured of a really wonderful day.

After she got into her dress, Kaylee did a first look with her dad and with her grandpa and I about lost it. So, so sweet. My couples who have special relationships with their grandparents are my kind of people. Grandparents are so special and I’m so thankful to have had a sweet relationship with mine. So, I try my best to capture some of those moments for my clients too. Anyway, the first looks were so delightful and again, the light was incredible.

For the events, the ceremony was under a beautiful old tree overlooking some Kentucky hills along the Ohio. How perfectly Kentucky! The al fresco dinner and reception were lovely. Tables were distanced, but that was not how things felt. A light in the midst of the pandemic. I’m so honored Neil & Kaylee had me be their wedding photographer. I loved every moment, even at 36 weeks pregnant! I’d do it again in a heartbeat! Enjoy many favorites. This is going to be a long post of Richwood on the River Outdoor Wedding in Louisville KY!
