Jon & Amanda: Vintage Pepin Mansion New Albany Wedding

My 2017 & 2018 wedding sesasons have been so fun getting to explore and learn more about Louisville and the surrounding areas! My couples introduce me to the most gorgeous places. Jon & Amanda first introduced me to Mt. Saint Francis last fall and have now introduced me to the lovely Pepin Mansion.

Jon & Amanda have an enchantingly kind quality about them that just poured over into every aspect of their wedding day: the stunning old mansion, lovely flowers, family-filled wedding party, personal touches, and sweet, sweet interactions. It was just a wonderful day that I know I won’t forget anytime soon!

I’ve loved watching my couples choose to do first looks this year. It’s such a precious moment! Watching Jon well up with emotion was one of the sweetest reactions I’ve seen. It’s so evident that these two are so in love and suited for each other. Their friends and family all agree from words that were exchanged during those in-between moments and through the public toasts. Again, days like this remind me why I love weddings, but more importantly marriage!

Here are lots and lots of beautiful photos from this incredible day. These portraits are some of my favorites to date – easily. Perfect weather, location, and LIGHT. That sunset tho. I am ALL for open air receptions, dances, and toasts at sunset, y’all!

A special thank you to the vendor team for making this day oh so lovely:
