Madalyn & Brandon - An Elmendorf Farm Wedding


As a bridal magazine based in Kentucky, you can bet that few things get us as excited as a gorgeous wedding on an old horse farm. When we first viewed Madalyn and Brandon's pictures, we were completely smitten, not only with them as a couple, but with their personal style as well. We hope you will find their ceremony as enchanting (and their puppies as adorable) as we did. Enjoy! From the Bride: Introduced through a mutual friend, I was drawn to Brandon because of his loving heart and kind soul. His penchant for romance peaked with an engagement proposal on a private beach in Maui at sundown. Immediately, visions of our special day were running vigorously through my head. Finally, after 18 months of planning, we were able to pull it off. We chose the scenic Elmendorf Farm in Lexington as the venue for our Big Day because it was such a picturesque setting.

On the day of our wedding, after a severe threat of cold and rain all week, the clouds finally opened to clear blue skies and radiant sunshine on what can only be described as a picture perfect day. Our ceremony on the steps of the iconic columns at Elmendorf was everything we had dreamed it would be. The ceremony also included a ritual of bonding in the Persian tradition to honor my heritage.

Of course, nothing could end our amazing day better than a Bluegrass themed reception.  Our reception was accented with Kentucky traditions, such as a bourbon and cigar bar and Ale-8 for the children. However, though the refreshments were amazing, the focal point of our night was when we stepped out of the spotlight together and reflected on the scores of friends and family members who traveled great distances just to share in our day of unity. It was a heartwarming moment seeing a room full of happy faces and it is one that we will never forget.
