The Beautiful Love Story of Shelby & Jamie

 The Bride and Groom traveled to Lexington Kentucky with the Wedding Party to exchange vows with family and friends. The first look was at the alter of Grace Baptist Church which was chosen for the ceremony.   A romantic photo-shoot of the couple took place at the Lexington Art League. The reception was held at the Copper Roux.

My Dream Wedding Day...  We decided on a first look.  A destination ceremony in a tropical location would follow the next day.  I told my photographer as we were leaving the bridal suite just to skip the 1st look because I was in too much of a rush. I just wanted to hurry and get to the reception and not keep people waiting. 

Our 1st LookThe Anticipation of the Groom seeing his Bride for the first time. ~ Our First Look ~

The photographer and videographer followed me with equipment running and ready to documented our story.  Just a few minutes to stop

and acknowledge our love.  The images captured our magnetism, chemistry and love.  

Our LoveThe anticipated kiss. After our 1st look we were driven by limousine to our reception for cake, food, and dancing.

We ended the night with friends and family singing farewell and waving hand held sparklers.
