Springhouse Gardens Wedding

Springhouse Gardens Wedding

We love Kimberly and Chase's real Kentucky wedding. It's full of rich color, gorgeous flowers, and lots of love!

From the bride: Our family and friends are very important to us so from the beginning we knew we wanted to have a special day for not only us, but for our closest family and friends to enjoy. Both Chase and I really wanted an outside wedding. We both love the outdoors and have such an appreciate for its beauty, especially here in Kentucky. We thought a gorgeous garden would be perfect for our big day, while the meadow and barn (along with other details) showed what we loved most about Kentucky, the place we were raised and the place we love.

We wanted our wedding to have a lot of things we loved or that described us, along with the love we had for our family and I think that it showed. One way we did this was having white flowers for both Chase’s and I’s aunts to wear pinned on their dresses to ensure they were involved and felt special at the ceremony because they were very close to us and had a hand in who we have grown to be (excellent non traditional way to include important members of the family). I also wanted to do something special for my mother, my very best friend, so I used part of the lace from her wedding dress to wrap around the stems of my wedding bouquet and added her mother’s favorite brooch (my grandmother who has passed). Nothing beat this wonderful addition to my bouquet. I felt the love from two very important women to me as I walked down the aisle and my mother felt so much love and joy.

Although our ceremony venue was in a garden and the entire venue was beautiful on its own, we still needed bouquets and some flowers to bring the color scheme and vision together. I didn’t realize just how important flowers were and how hard it was to choose the perfect ones. Chase’s mother really loves flowers and gardening and was kind enough to orchestrate ALL the flowers for our ceremony and reception.

While there are so many other extraordinary, unique details, such as the vows we wrote ourselves or the etched, monogrammed, white lantern we used as our unity candle, these are some of the things that really showed our vision for the day. Our wedding was honestly the best day of our lives and something that we would love to relive again and again. There is not one thing that we would change about the details or the day, it was the most beautiful day and the most wonderful feeling I have every felt getting to marry the love of my life. Planning a wedding is so much fun! Bringing your vision to life and fine-tuning it as you go is great and seeing or hearing ideas is very helpful, so hopefully our Kentucky wedding can help give ideas to other brides and grooms for their big day!
