Katie & Trey's Lovely Lexington Wedding
When a Kentucky football player falls in love with a Tennessee Volunteer cheerleader you know it's going to be an interesting tale. Katie & Trey put rivalries aside & ended up with a love story that spans two SEC states. You can read all about it & see photos from their Lexington wedding, photographed by Scott Hayes Photography, below! And be sure to check out that groom's cake. We've never seen Wildcat Blue & Volunteer Orange go together so well!
From the bride: Trey and I have a funny and interesting background. Trey is from Knoxville, Tennessee and went to the University of Kentucky to play football and I am from Lexington, Kentucky and went to Knoxville to be a cheerleader at the University of Tennessee. Talk about a house divided! Who knows how many times we would pass each other on I75 going to and from college. Little did we know our paths would collide so ironically and we would end up meeting in Knoxville through one of my friends I attended college with, who just happened to be Trey's sister. Once Trey and I met, even the SEC rivalry couldn't keep us two love birds apart.
The inspiration for our wedding was "My Old Kentucky Home" mixed with a little bit of "Good Ole' Rocky Top" We wanted the great traditions of the Bluegrass State to shine through our wedding, especially since we were having many out of town guests. We wanted to show them how great and special Kentucky is. We incorporated a bourbon bar and the wonderful taste of Lexington's own Crank and Boom ice cream, which the guests raved over. We also had Kentucky themed food, drinks, and decorations including a Commonwealth stadium groom's cake, that of course had some orange thrown in for the VOL in me.
Trey and I both agreed that our most treasured moment was when the doors at the back of the church opened and our eyes met as I was escorted down the aisle by my father. The amount of love and happiness that came over us and filled both our hearts was truly a God thing and is a moment and feeling we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We also had another great moment towards the end of the night. At the reception we took a step back to take in the beauty of the venue and the love, laugher, and fun all of our closest friends and family were having. This was a precious memory that will forever be embedded in our minds and we were so glad we were able to share this special day with loved ones.
