Lacy & Tyler - An Owensboro Orchard Wedding

At Kentucky Bride,  we love all the beautiful outdoor venues that accompany the wonderful love stories of real Kentucky couples. Lacy and Tyler are no exception. With a gorgeously contrasting color scheme, we loved getting to know this couple through their photos and this story from the bride.

From the Bride: Tyler and I met through mutual friends while we were celebrating a rare University of Kentucky football victory in 2007. He was living in Louisville, me in Lexington, and after finishing college, I moved to Louisville to be closer to him and start medical school. We were engaged almost five years later in Charleston after a day of boating with friends.

The orchard in Owensboro was the perfect background for our wedding with a picturesque representation of Kentucky and everything we love about the south. It was absolutely beautiful and lent itself well to the laid back style we wanted for our day. We kept the colors simple, using navy, white and pink. The flowers were a mix of hydrangeas and peonies.

We wanted our wedding to reflect us as individuals as well as a couple. I am very close with my family, and involved everyone in the wedding, including five nieces and nephews. Tyler wanted his College of Charleston days and our engagement to show with the seersucker suits, bowties, and shrimp and grits.

Our vision of classic southern charm was accomplished with our groomsmens' bowties, and the bridemaids' horseshoe necklaces. We also had horseshoes on our koozies and programs. Little extras, like monograms, mint julep centerpieces and mini hot browns helping bring the evening together.

It's so hard to pick a favorite moment! But we both agree the celebration after the ceremony was amazing. As soon as our eight-piece live band began to play, the dance floor was immediately packed with about 200 guests. With a mixture of Motown, "Top 40s" and classic wedding songs, there was plenty of variety to keep all ages dancing!

We are so blessed to have had such an amazing celebration of family, friends and love!
