The weather this wedding season has been very temperamental to say the least. The wonderful thing is, Mother Nature showed up with rain and disappeared, leaving glorious light at all of the right times. Most couples would have freaked out having an outdoor, DIY farm wedding with rain. Not Jessica and Craig, they stayed so calm and smiled the entire day. I have never seen a bride who kept it together as well as Jessica did. What was important to them was their love, spending time with family and friends, and that they were getting married. I think the rain added a bit of uncontrolled chaos that made the day more memorable. It also gave me the opportunity to create some stunning portraits of Jessica while we waited in one of the barns for it to pass. Looking back at the day, I bet Jessica and Craig would agree that they wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
Neltner's Farm provided the perfect backdrop for Jessica and Craig's ultimate DIY intimate wedding. The scenery is stunning. It's here that I believe you get a glimpse of Kentucky at her finest. The farm is surrounded by hills and gorgeous trees. Jessica and Craig worked very hard creating all of the signs, the altar, and decor. Marti Heard Designs did a fantastic job, as usual with the floral designs and helped Jessica pull it all together. Everything had such a personal touch and was very creative.
