One of my images just made the cover of Sophisticated Living Weddings. The magazine is also featuring the wedding which took place at the famous Seelbach Hotel in downtown Louisville. Mike and Becky were a complete joy to capture. When Becky exclaimed, “I’m dressed so fancy, it’s like I’m getting married or something today!” we all laughed, but really we were all admiring how gorgeous she looked in that wedding dress. Since they invited friends and family from the East Coast, it made sense to hold the wedding at a hotel to accommodate the out-of-towners and the Seelbach’s elegance and history made it a perfect fit.
These guys sure brought some shame to the “usual” dancers in the middle of a circle… I hope I can get that low in 20yrs! Here are some of the other images.
Becky and her family are Jewish, but Mike and his family are Methodist so their ceremony consisted of traditions from both a Christian and Jewish wedding, as you may have noticed a Rabbi and a Minister. Following Jewish tradition, the couple was wed under a canopy called a Chuppah. Theirs was made from fabric from Becky’s grandmother’s wedding dress. And the table holding the wine for the ceremony was clothed in handkerchiefs from Michael’s great-grandmother.
After the ceremony, they held an open bar cocktail hour in the foyer where they spent much of their time greeting guests while elaborate appetizers were served. This was also a great time for guests to mingle because so often in a arranged seating reception not everyone gets to say hello.
The day went off beautifully without a hitch, even including the riding on chairs! Congrats on your marriage Mike and Becky and thanks again for letting me join in! You can see photos from Mike and Becky’s Engagement Session Here.
