Mallori + Tory | Kentucky Farm Wedding

Aug 4 | Weddings

I've been wanting to blog this wedding from the second I shot it a week and a half ago. Mallori and Tory decided to get married on her parents' property outside of Shelbyville, Kentucky. The wedding was out in an open field and the reception was near their house, with lights hung from the trees. It was a wedding unlike any I'd ever shot. Mainly because mondo thunderstorms were predicted throughout the day. Lauren Chitwood, Mallori's all-star wedding planner, let me know that they were getting married outside even if it was pouring down buckets of rain. So I headed out to Dick's Sports before the wedding and loaded up with some new rain gear just in case. We were lucky enough to dodge the early storms. And the sun even came out during the ceremony. But half way through the reception, God unleashed a fury of rain, lightning and thunder. Everybody stayed out in the pouring rain, getting drenched and kept partying. I had never photographed anything like it. It was awesome!

Wedding Venue: Private Estate in Shelbyville, Kentucky
