Nicole and Nolan's Ironwood Wedding

From the bride: Our special day was everything we imagined from the vendors to the smallest of details. Ironwood is the epitome of the Kentucky lifestyle from the restored thoroughbred horse barn to the rolling hills and sunset views. This venue is one to be in awe over.

Our wedding took place in the gardens at Ironwood. I had two different visions for the florist and they combined them flawlessly. I’ve never seen arrangements more beautiful. Together with our bridal party we made the centerpieces making memories for months leading up to our day. We chose to serve beer & champagne during the ceremony so friends could cheers with us during our wine unity. We made the decision to write our own vows making it so sentimental and special.

Our cocktail hour took place upstairs in the barn immediately after the ceremony, the display of appetizers was exceptional. We then served a plated dinner and guests were raving about the food. The toasts from our wedding party had the whole room laughing but also crying too. We spent months taking lessons and learning our first dance. It was our special date night once a week and set the tone for the reception. Our guests enjoyed a fun photo booth, open bar (our wedding planner was even nice enough to run to the liquor store mid reception so we never ran out) and a well known DJ to keep the party going. We did a sparkler send off but that wasn’t the end of the evening. We surprised all of our guests, including those closest to us, with a fireworks show. It was truly magical and had people in tears. It was our perfect day!

Brides favorite memory: Our first look. My husband’s reaction was priceless and I’m forever thankful that we have the photos and video to relive it.

Groom’s favorite memory: First look, seeing my wife in her dress for the first time.
