This Styled Wedding Workshop is set in the romantic, pastoral hills of Danville, KY at the beautiful Warrenwood Manor. With moody rays of light and love, this couple basques in the timeless beauty of the landscape around them as well as inside the Manor of which antique Warrenwood sits. With gorgeous florals, the best wallpaper ever, and the magical lighting of the prismatic window glass, I fell in love with this location immediately.
I love attending workshops. It is the best way to get to know other photographers in your region, learn from one another, and just to get that experience we yearn for with little to no pressure. I love that these meetups offer a breadth of knowledge with attendees from all sorts of backgrounds, who are all eager to improve their skills and have fun with photos. I truly believe that the best way to learn from one another is to build friendships rather than competition, and these workshops inspire that in me. I am always thankful to anyone who makes the time to host one of these styled shoots, I know that a lot of work goes into planning them and it doesn’t go underappreciated. Thanks for taking a chance on us Brandi!

Hannah & Cody had the sweetest wedding day in Kentucky. Berry Hill Mansion was the perfect location for this summer love story. It had multiple rooms for getting ready spaces; indoor and outdoor reception areas; and an outdoor ceremony. With both Hannah and Cody having such fun and loving spirits, it was easy for every little moment of their day to be so unique and perfectly them.
The Love Letters
The two sweethearts wrote secret love notes to each other throughout the day, having their friends deliver them to avoid seeing each other until the ceremony. To extend those special moments, they decided to do something special before the ceremony. By hiding on two sides of a gingko tree that blocked their faces they were able to hold hands. Then they read letters from each other, exchanged gifts and said a prayer.
Special Moments on their Big Day
See the bride and groom in the most anticipating moments of their wedding day; the moment they see each other for the first time; the kiss as husband and wife and their dance for the first time as Mr. & Mrs. Lane. Cake smashing, speeches, the bouquet and garter tosses. It felt like the sun knew how happy everyone was and hung out a little longer. The bright and beautiful sunset made for real romance during the bride and groom portraits and offered a smooth transition into the moonlit dance scene. Guests lit a sparkler path for the couple to run through and they ended the night by hopping into a vintage car that took them off to their honeymoon.
