COOK WEDDING | LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY | INTIMATE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
DIY VINTAGE WEDDING AT CHEROKEE PARK
Derrick asked Rachel to marry him on their trip to Europe. They were thrilled to begin planning their wedding when they returned from traveling. However, they quickly realized how stressful and expensive wedding planning is. They decided to forego the big affair and fancy wedding for something a little more their style, and put together a vintage DIY wedding that was perfectly unique to them.
They kept the focus on what was really important to them – family, friends, and the love that they share. They decided on a small, intimate ceremony at Cherokee Park in Louisville, KY. The ceremony took place at the top of Dog Hill, a well-known spot for Louisvillians to hang out, take their pups to play, and sled whenever there is enough snow.
Their mutual friend and former coworker, Trey, officiated the ceremony. Friends and family alike all had roles to play in making sure the Cook wedding went off without a hitch. It really was beautiful and you really can see the love these two have for one another.
VINTAGE STYLE WITH MODERN FLARE
I just loved the vintage style that Rachel and Derrick chose. Rachel wore an adorable tea length lace dress. Derrick wore gray slacks, white shirt, and suspenders. They both worn navy blue Vans tennis shoes. The results are incredible. Their photos look like something out of my grandparents’ photo album. Absolutely classic.
A RECEPTION FOR CRAFT BEER LOVERS
Rachel and Derrick’s reception was held at a local brewery where they are mug club members, Great Flood Brewing Company. The two love craft beer and can often be found at Great Flood watching soccer or playing trivia while enjoying a cold one. In fact, it’s where we first met almost a year ago! The food served was also local. Bar-B-Que from Mark’s Feed Store, a Louisville favorite filled everyones’ bellies.
