Stephanie & Dan - Wedding at the Apiary in Lexington

Anekdota Studio

Stephanie & Dan's wedding marked the start of my spring/summer wedding season, and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful affair to start the season off right. First, look at Stephanie's dress. It's gorgeous AND it has pockets. 

Stephanie & Dan were married at St. Paul's Catholic Church in downtown Lexington. They saw each other for the first time on their wedding day at the start of their ceremony. It was a beautiful moment to capture. 

Two years ago Dan proposed to Stephanie while they were walking on the beach in Puerto Rico. They love traveling together and now they'll be embarking on adventures as husband and wife.

Stephanie and Dan's reception was at the Apiary, and let me just say it is a beautiful venue. Not only do they have impeccable gardens, but their service, and food are spectacular. Photographing the Apiary is always such a pleasure. 

One of my favorite parts of a wedding, is the reception. This is when the couple I work with, gets to relax and enjoy their time with friends and family. Seeing Stephanie and Dan amongst the people they chose to celebrate their wedding with, it's obvious that they are loved and supported. It's also obvious, that they're the kind of people that inspire great friendships. 

Congratulations Stephanie & Dan!

Stephanie & Dan - Engagement Session at the Arboretum

Anekdota Studio

I met Stephanie and Dan at the Arboretum for their engagement session on a surprisingly pleasant day after a week of rain. The Arboretum is not only one of my favorite photography locations it's also one of my favorite places just to go for a walk. 

Stephanie and Dan love to travel together.  Two years ago while walking on the beach in Puerto Rico, Dan said to Stephanie, "I could travel with you forever. Would you be ok with that?" She immediately replied, "Yes, absolutely! Fun!" to which he responded by getting down on one knee and asking her to marry him. Of course, she said yes to that question too.

I had so much fun photographing Stephanie and Dan's engagement session, in large part because they were so much fun to be around. I can't wait until their wedding in May! Congrats Stephanie and Dan!

Kayla & Brett - Wintery Engagement Session

Anekdota Studio

Kayla really had her heart set on a snowy engagement session. I was worried it wasn't going to work out, thankfully we were able to get this session in on the one day we actually got snow flurries this year. 

Kayla and Brett met while working at Bed, Bath and Beyond. At first Kayla thought Brett hated her because he was so quiet. As it turned out, she was completely off the mark, and eventually they ended up dating. 

They had started planning their wedding before actually getting engaged, so Kayla wasn't expecting any big proposal. Brett, however, had a plan. He knew that she liked Harry Potter, so he wrote her a Harry Potter themed poem and set the engagement ring on a wand.  She was thoroughly surprised. 

I'm really looking forward to Kayla and Brett's wedding later this year!

Lee & Steven - Wedding at the Apiary in Lexington

Lee&Steven_Wedding_BlogComposit_0001.jpg

Lee & Steven's wedding festivities started at the Hilton in downtown Lexington before heading over to the Apiary for the ceremony and reception. When I was gathering all the details from Lee, I was struck with how perfect everything was, from her custom green velvet heels to the intricate head piece she had made from an Etsy artisan. 

Lee & Steven went to High School together but they never really hung out during those years. However, Lee must have left an impression on Steven because years later he found himself shooting her a facebook message. It's amazing how such a small thing can lead to something so much bigger, what might seem like a simple message can lead to connecting with the love of your life.

Lee & Steven really are great together. Steven instantly relaxes when he's in Lee's presence. It's amazing how they make each other shine. 

The Apiary is a beautiful venue and the food is simply phenomenal. When I talked with Lee & Steven about their wedding they kept emphasizing that they just wanted people to have fun, eat good food, and enjoy the party. I think this wedding achieved all of those goals.  

Congratulations Lee & Steven! Thanks for including me in your wedding!
