This is a couple I hold so near + dear to my heart. Haley and I go waaaaay back - all the way to sixth grade! I remember when Haley and Blake started dating. From high school, to college, to grad school, these two have the sweetest little love story. Haley and Blake got married at Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Their venue was a LEGIT cave! The pair got married under the prettiest canopy of trees, surrounded by twinkling lights and their closest family + friends, followed by a party in the cave with fun music, glow lights, and Mellow Mushroom pizza. Haley, her mom, + her mom’s talented tribe of creative friends DIY’d most of the docor and elements. Haley’s grandfather + dad built the backdrop for the ceremony, Haley put together all of the bouquets + florals, + threw an awesome party. It was so much fun, and SO them.
Sometimes brides get freaked out about going against tradition. I totally get it, too. Sometimes going against your grandma’s expectation of an all-out celebration can seem out of reach for you, and you certainly don’t want to let anyone down! But it’s so important to remember that this is your wedding. There is no do-over. Make it yours! Make it a celebration that brings everyone you love together in a way that only you + your partner can do. I LOVE that Haley + Blake had a later ceremony, ate pizza for dinner, + got married at a freakin’ cave! I’ll always remember this day as magical, fun, memorable, + so THEM.
Let’s chat about ways to make your day YOURS.
