Kristen & Jeremy’s Classy Catholic Wedding Ending with a Backyard Reception in Kentucky

Kristen and Jeremy were so wonderful to work with from their engagement session to their wedding day! These two were fun-loving, laid back, and so kind! Their ceremony was at their hometown church, Holy Name, and they reception was held at Kristen’s mother’s home about 10 minutes away! Because they kept their ceremony and reception small, there was so much meaning and intentionality I was able to capture! They had plenty of time for photos but also time to really spend time with their friends and family!

Kristen’s advice for future brides: “Don’t be scared to have a small wedding. It can be a tough decision to make, as you are worried about hurting people’s feelings that wouldn’t get invited. Keeping our wedding as family and close friends made it so special and intimate. It allowed us to stay true to ourselves throughout the whole process, after all who were we trying to impress? We were able to enjoy our day 110% without a care in the world.”

A couple of my favorite parts of their day: 1. The blue mustang they drove around after their ceremony all the way to their reception! This was one of my favorite things to photograph at their wedding! So fun! 2. The intimate feel of their day! Kristen and Jeremy had under 50 guests at their wedding, allowing them to truly celebrate with their closest friends and family as well as having their reception in their backyard! 3. Kristen’s beautiful bridal bouquet from florist, Emerald Design, of Evansville, Indiana!
