Alicia + Jon

Alicia + Jon

What a perfect summer wedding this was. Alicia + Jon wed in June 2016 and the pictures speak for themselves – amazing friends and family, beautiful weather, and the most fun dance party! The bridesmaids had so much fun getting ready in the playhouse while the groomsmen played a few rounds of corn hole to start the day. My favorite part was watching the happy newlyweds take some gorgeous sunset photos in the field. After golf carting them back to the reception, everyone danced the night away, enjoying cigars, whiskey bar, and cake to end the night. Thank you to Inspire Me Imagery for sharing these gorgeous shots with us! Don’t forget to watch this wedding come to life in the video by LVL 13 Cinematography.  ...
When a Wedding Planner Gets Married

When a Wedding Planner Gets Married

Just one month away from my own wedding, I have been doing a lot of thinking about the weddings we create here at Crossed Keys Estate. Each one special in it’s own way; with a couple so uniquely in love; with families & friends so distinctly different; with moments that bring tears of joy; with memories that we & the guests remember for years. I would be lying to you if I said I didn’t cry a little at every single wedding. Maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for romance. Maybe it’s because I watch our clients work so hard on making the day a beautiful & memorable one. Or maybe it’s because I see myself and our staff work so hard during the week because we genuinely care about each event and each client. All of these things make creating a wedding that much more special to us. I have hugged crying brides who forgot a detail or ripped their dress; I have run around in the rain to make sure a single bridal party member doesn’t have to get a drip of water on them; I’ve dug through garbages & couch cushions for a lost trinket or piece of jewelry misplaced, carried bouquets all day, and stayed up late nights making last minute decor items — and I loved every second of it. Nothing makes me happier than helping couples have the perfect day. So it comes as no surprise that I am a giant ball of emotions as I approach my own wedding day. Not just because I love my hunny 🙂  but because weddings are my life....

Summer Rustic Boho Wedding

Summer Rustic Boho Wedding

Even on a rainy day, the sun always shows up for our brides and the proof is in these gorgeous pictures! Lauren Allmond Photography did a beautiful job capturing special moments under natural tree arches, English gardens, and sprawling meadows. Estee & Jesse are such a special couple and we were thrilled to put together a rustic boho wedding full of joyful colors and funky details. The bride’s unique applique lace dress and floral print shoes matched perfectly with the venue and her boho spirit. The groom contributed homemade vodka with fresh fruit to the tables which made for a great round of toasts! Even the kepahs were in on the fun featuring a rainbow tie dye pattern. This duo definitely wins the most fun wedding of 2015! Thank you to Lauren Allmond for the amazing pictures and to the Event Designs by Katherine team for the stunning floral & decor work. And they lived happily ever after. The...
