An Adventurous Woodsy Wedding at Lost River Cave

Woodsy wedding at Lost River Cave

A cave might be the last place you’d expect for a wedding, but the Lost River Cave in Kentucky perfectly reflected Michele and Cody’s adventurous spirit and their love for the great outdoors.

Their celebrations started with a woodsy outdoor ceremony, followed by their nighttime cave reception which featured a beautiful rock candy geode cake. Check out their unique wedding below, and don’t miss the full gallery after captured by Sarah Katherine Davis Photography.

Getting married at Lost River cave

From Sarah Katherine Davis Photography: Lost River Cave was the perfect location for Michele & Cody's woodsy wedding. They love all things outdoors (kayaking, hiking, and backpacking are their jam) so it only makes sense to get married at a spot that reflects that. They fell in love with Lost River after exploring the area on a date and knew right away that's where they would like to get married one day.

Adventurous Wedding 

Their wedding day felt adventurous, magical, and intimate. There were all kinds of details I really enjoyed (specifically that Michele wore her mother's veil and their geode cake involved rock candy) but the ceremony itself was the element that really stood out to me. They each wrote their own heartfelt vows. As they shared their promises with one another the sun got lower and lower and the evening songbirds began singing. It was a really special moment— I would be surprised if there were any dry eyes by the end of the ceremony.

After dinner, friends and family joined Michele and Cody on the dance floor. As the dancing heated up and the valley cooled down a mist rose from the cave into the starlit woods. It was a beautiful way to end a beautiful day.
