Mr. & Mrs. Smith | A Luxury Wedding at The Apiary

Oct 13, 2023

Upon my arrival at the enchanting Blushery in Lexington, Kentucky, for Hannah and Ryan’s wedding, I was greeted by an abundance of smiles and laughter. The air was filled with excitement as the bridal party prepared for the big day. With a stunning venue and perfect weather, the day couldn’t have started more beautifully.

As the girls put on their finishing touches of hair and makeup, joy, laughter, and even a few tears filled the room. The moments we shared while capturing their adorable getting-ready outfits were filled with happiness and all the hype for the day.

Meanwhile, the gentlemen were getting ready at the Manchester Hotel in downtown Lexington Kentucky. This elegant venue, with its rich colors and warm atmosphere, perfectly suited the vibe of the guys getting ready. Laughter and anticipation filled the air as they looked forward to the rest of the day.

Arriving at the Apiary, my heart skipped a beat as I witnessed the stunning beauty from the entrance throughout the entire property. From the checkered floors that Hannah got into her dress with her mother on, from the abundance of florals in the gardens to the beautiful architecture, it was a photographer’s dream.

After Hannah donned her absolutely stunning dress, we embarked on a photoshoot with her and her bridesmaids, exploring the gardens to capture the property’s full charm. We could hear the guys laughing and having a good time with their photos as well on the other part of the property making the anticipation for Hannah of seeing Ryan for the first time even more real.

Once the bridal party photos were complete, it was time for a romantic and intimate first look between Ryan and Hannah. The setting was the exquisite front doors of the property covered with draping greenery. As Hanna walked out, Ryan’s reaction was nothing short of priceless – a moment straight out of a fairy tale. The couple’s natural chemistry, laughter, and effortless connection made every shot a favorite.

As we prepared for the ceremony, the wooden chairs were adorned with beautiful flowers, and the high ceilings and elegant chandelier set the scene perfectly. Guests were greeted by a vintage phone serving as a guest book, allowing them to leave heartfelt messages for the couple. Once everyone was entered into the ceremony it was time for the bride to have her big moment walking down the aisle Ryan’s expression as Hannah walked towards him was another moment from a fairy tale.

The ceremony was an intimate and special time, with a bridesmaid and Ryan’s father sharing a few words, adding an extra layer of sentiment to the occasion.

After the ceremony, the cocktail hour commenced, with guests enjoying the delectable drinks the couple had planned. The bartenders were mixologist that made the most spectacular drinks for everyone with the finest ingredients and details. The cocktails even featured stirring sticks with an adorable picture of their dog, and to everyone’s delight, the sweet puppy joined them for some photos, creating unforgettable moments of pure happiness.

As the sun set, it was time to enter the jaw-droppingly beautiful reception space. Every detail, from the abundant flowers to the elegant chairs and glasses, was meticulously planned. The evening began with a lively entrance from the full bridal party, followed by special dances from the couple and their parents. Hannah and her dad even broke into a fun dance segment making the reception fill with joy.

Dinner was served in the finest manor with a mouth watering menu. Speeches were heartfelt, toasts were made, and the cake was cut. Then the dance floor opened, and it was a night full of laughter, excitement, and energetic dancing that will be etched in everyone’s memories forever.

Hannah and Ryan, your day was a spectacle of love, and I am truly honored to have been part of it. Your contagious and beautiful love for each other shines through in every photo. May your journey together be filled with a lifetime of love and happiness. Enjoy these cherished memories forever!

This incredible day would not have been possible without this wonderful team of vendors!
