Kalin and Jeff planned a destination wedding. Kentucky may not be an exotic destination but that didn’t stop them from gathering their friends and family from across the county and even a few from Germany to witness their marriage at Evan’s Orchard in Georgetown.
It was my first time visiting the orchard and I was impressed by the accommodations for the Bride and Groom, the setup for the ceremony (complete with a cross and pews for guests), the atmosphere in the reception barn, and the friendliness of the employees (You are awesome Jenn!).
I really liked how laid-back the entire day was. The toughest part was making sure the bride and groom didn’t cross paths as they were coming in and out of their rooms…. and also the ring bearer wanted nothing to do with me or taking any pictures. I wore him down in the end or at least he tolerated taking some family pictures after the ceremony.
The ceremony was traditional and officiated by Tiffany Bryant. I think everyone got teary-eyed when Jeff started to cry during the vows. He was relaxed all day but when the big moment came the emotions got the best of him. It was a very tender moment.
After greeting all the guests Jeff and Kalin and I took a little walk through the orchard and got some amazing shots! I’m excited about them and seeing which ones will be my favorite.
At the reception we were entertained my the Ty Bates Band out of Tennessee. I am always inspired by musicians and their incredible talent for entrainment. The guests enjoyed the music and also a few yard games. The party was still going strong when it was time for me to leave. I am sure everyone had a night to remember.
