We got to know Dallyn + Kevin really well during their engagement session in downtown Louisville in the Spring of ’18. That’s right, damn near 2 years ago. They told us all about how they met, theater and their life in New Jersey. We had the pleasure of meeting their baby Ruthie then too and so we were so pumped for their wedding day to reunite with everyone!
Dallyn + Kevin both work in theater so they had no problem being in front of the camera on their wedding day! Not only did it make our job super easy and even inspiring but also allowed them to be fully present and truly enjoy being in one another’s company.
To say that we were obsessed with Dallyn’s choice of floral colors, classic old Hollywood hair style, make up and stunning Couture Closet gown that tied the whole look and vibe together would be an understatement. Kevin showed off his impeccable style with a dark blue windowpane suit that complemented Dallyn’s gown and florals so well.
This is the one and only Ruthie and it was her day just as much as the bride and grooms!
Kevin’s sister officiated the wedding and calmed everyone’s nerves with a shot from her flask bracelet. They both added soil to their tree during their ceremony while their friends sang to them. Immediately after the ceremony we toasted champagne with the bridal party, snuck off up into the crows nest with the newly weds then came back down to the tent to party for the reception.
They kept it small and intimate for the ceremony and reception with their closest family and friends. The decor consisted of homemade center pieces with bright + vibrant florals and DIY take home candles Dallyn + Kevin made for guests.
The bride and groom entered their tent to an atmosphere full of love, joy and many, many stories. The mic kept getting passed around during best man and maid of honor speeches so one of the best men had to step in with his old man cane equipped with a horn to cut people off when their speeches got too long winded. Kind of like this blog…
Once speeches were finished dinner was served and the cake was cut. The first dances then followed. Everyone danced under the romantic string lights lowly hung in the backyard of the Mansion. The bride and groom were then entertained with a surprise performance from their bridal party/family that included a lip sync, dancing and fake drums. It was nothing short of brilliant and so much fun to watch, capture and be apart of.
And what better way to end a wonderful day than with some tacos! I won’t embarrass myself and tell you how excited I got when I saw Fistful of Tacos pull up!
