Rustic Kentucky Wedding

There is plenty of anticipation from every bride and groom before their wedding, but we are guessing that our next couple was a bit more anxious than most. After two long deployments and living in separate cities for one year prior to their wedding, Kev and Erin finally got to be together.

As you will soon see, all their patience paid off and they had an incredible day. Their wedding was overflowing with details that were carefully curated by Jaclyn Journey. One of our favorites has to be the wedding favor table. You can read on to hear more details from the bride, and see their exact budget breakdown. As always you can see the entire wedding in the full gallery here.  All beautifully captured by Whitney Neal Photography.

From The Bride:
On June 2, 2012 we were left breathless. Not from the long day or the emotional highs of a big wedding, but from the perfection of our long awaited wedding day. This is exactly what we had hoped for when we started planning one of the most memorable days of our lives. Not only was this a celebration of our marriage, but also a celebration of Kev and I finally being together after 2 deployments and living in separate cities for a year prior to the wedding. The Navy had introduced us to each other less then three years earlier on the beautiful island of Guam where we were both stationed at the time. After being engaged on the island we quickly had to make a decision where to get married.

We decided the most central place for all of our friends and family was my hometown of Crestwood, Kentucky. Yew Dell Gardens was an obvious choice with all its natural beauty and rustic feel.

I was lucky to have been introduced to Whitney Neal our photographer who then introduced me to many of our other vendors, who she had worked with closely in the past. This was invaluable since I would be planning the wedding from San Diego, CA where I was stationed with the Navy at the time. Jaclyn Journey, who executed the flowers, the artistic design, and managed to find time to be our day of coordinator, was absolutely amazing. She managed to do all of these things with such grace and ease. The day from start to end felt effortless and natural. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and the company of our most favorite people.

    This wedding is beautiful! I am getting married at Yew Dell Gardens in Oct. and your wedding is exactly what im going for. I was wondering where you got the signs saying two families become one and the sign with the arrows saying where everything is? I am looking for the exact look. And where did you get the wood pieces holding the pies? Thank you so much!!!! and Congrats:)

    Greate post. Keep posting such kind of info on your blog.
    Im really impressed by your site.
    Hey there, You have performed an excellent job.
    I will certainly digg it and individually recommend to my friends.
    I am confident they’ll be benefited from this website.

    There are a few hurdles to cross first though, including the fact that many current televisions
    cannot display widgets or connect to the net. View deposits and debits for any
    number of expense reporting accounts. exe error, but also remove any registry errors, eliminate the invalid
    entries, repair Dll errors and so on within minutes.

  18. This is just the beginning when you want to start it.
    Visit Twitter’s information page for problem resolution:. This means that you get no syncing feature, but your passwords are not stored on remote servers (unlike with Last – Pass and Robo – Form Everywhere).

  19. Clans are groups of players that join together for the specific purpose of helping each other.

    All clans have their own Facebook groups so that they can organize and
    do promotions. Depending on how you answered your questions earlier regarding the size of the potential clan, you begin recruiting in a number of ways.

  20. Great article.

  21. This is all thanks to the Insanity Workout DVD which is well worth the money.
    The insanity physical exercise may be performed for 60 days to get the
    best outcomes along with the p90x exercises may be accomplished for 55 minutes
    everyday and completed for three months. Once you
    commence the Insanity workout system it does not take
    you long and soon you don’t value calories burned when your clothes will quickly hang loose on your body.

    While you should patronize some of the fine local coffee shops, sometimes you
    can’t help stopping at the coffee giant. So join the fun,
    and grab some quality apps this week with the great folks over at Moms With Apps.

    United airlines, usps, urban dictionary, ups tracking,
    usps tracking,. Fans will be able to check out set times, enter to win prizes, buy tickets,
    get ticket offers, text-to-screen and more. The app exclusively
    sells tickets that stay on your phone and will allow you to enter Live Nation venues.

    I was just wondering what your thankyou note in the centrepiece design says as i cant read the smaller font. It is a fab idea. I would be grateful of your help

  25. -100. Jennifer says:

    I’m 45 and getting married for the second time, but a first time wedding. These were such lovely pictures and I was able to get a few ideas. Thank you!! Wishing you many sweet wishes for your future. God bless!!

  26. Exceptional post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic?

    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little
    bit further. Many thanks!

  27. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite culture, its influence on western cinema has not
    been given correct recognition. The update
    also makes it possible for the clan leaders to deliver messages to
    members. This calls for cracking open your own Wii, which in turn voids
    the warranty.
