I’ll never forget the time Josiah was helping me on a wedding in Chicago and he mentioned this girl he had been talking with, from Louisville, KY. At the time, Josiah was living in Minneapolis and helping me photograph weddings. Amelia was that girl he had been chatting with and she happened to be in Chicago that very same weekend of our wedding. So, as the night wound down, I was like…”You should have her come swing by the wedding.” I mean, at that point they had yet to even see each other face to face. It was the coolest thing to see them sitting at a table, drinks in hand…hanging out as I photographed the dancing and late night happenings at the wedding. Fast forward a couple years and I’m driving down to KY to photograph their wedding. They found a beautiful backdrop for the wedding in the Farmington Historic Plantation in Louisville. With help from friends and family, they transformed the space into a beautiful, intimate experience. The ceremony location was a short walk from the reception, with a lush garden in-between. It was HOT. Then, it poured. It was one of those days where you could feel the atmospheric energy building, knowing it would eventually break. So, they decided to wait out the rain, eventually fitting in a brief ceremony (which included another downpour). Umbrella’s came out. People fled for cover. Josiah and Amelia just stood happily as could be out in the rain. I love this about them. I hope their love for each other proves strong and willing to enjoy life’s downpours. Here’s a small sampling of photo’s from their wedding day. Thanks so much for following along! Your support is humbling and I’m beyond grateful.
