Lexington Wedding Photographers | Ashley and Ricky’s Classic Outdoor Wedding

*Update 9/28/12: Due to popular Pinterest demand, I asked Ashley where she found these gorgeous sequined dresses! She says she found them at Dillards, on sale last summer, and a family friend made the sash!*

It’s a good week for full wedding blog posts!

Ashley and Ricky were married in one of the most exciting ceremonies we have ever had the pleasure of photographing! The ceremony, which took place at Ricky’s family’s farm was planned to be outside. After careful watching of the weather for weeks, the decision was made to keep it outdoors, rain or shine. Saturday dawned bright and beautiful, with the sun out and not a cloud in the sky. The first look, wedding party pictures, and family pictures went off without a hitch. Fast forward to twenty minutes before ceremony time…the sky is black, the wind has kicked up, and everyone is checking the weather on their cell phones. The rain started right as Ashley walked down the aisle, and their quick-thinking pastor cut the ceremony down to about 5 minutes as the rain poured. They said their “I do’s”, kissed, and booked it back up the aisle to the limo, while guests ran to their cars. Most brides would have been devastated…but Ashley and Ricky loved it! It was spontaneous, exciting, and very much “them.”

One of my favorite parts about their wedding day was how expressive Ashley and Ricky both are (you’ll see what I mean when we get to the images!). You could really tell they truly FELT everything on their wedding day, and were living in the moment. I am so thrilled that we got to experience their joy right along with them!

Prepare for a LOT of images 🙂 Ready?

Loved the purple and champagne wedding colors!

See what I mean about expressive?! SO adorable!

Love this moment with Ashley and her mother praying right before the ceremony

So when it’s raining during portrait time, sometimes you have to get creative and compromise 🙂 And then, the images might just be some of your favorites!

Then it was onto the reception at the beautiful Winchester Country Club! (Seriously? These two are so cute!)

Father daughter dances always choke me up!

This group certainly knew how to party…so fun!

Congratulations again, Ashley and Ricky! We wish you all the best 🙂

Brides: what’s the most unexpected thing that happened on your wedding day? Any advice for dealing with the unexpected (like the weather!) on a wedding day for brides who are planning? Leave your thoughts in the comments! 🙂
