Amanda and Andrew’s Wedding at the Brown Hotel

Amanda & Andrew’s Wedding at the Brown Hotel was absolutely fabulous. As a Louisville wedding photographer I love Brown Hotel Weddings and this was no exception. Every detail of this black-tie celebration was gorgeous. Most notably, of course, the bride looked simply stunning in her lace dress. So many brides choose to put their hair up, but Amanda’s hair looked exquisite down. Jewish weddings start with the signing of the the Ketubah, the Jewish marriage contract.  This beautiful contract is written in both Hebrew and English and is quite literally a piece of artwork meant to be displayed in the couple’s home for years to come. Family as well as the wedding party gathered to watch with the rabbi as the witnesses signed. After some champagne it was time to head to the formal ceremony which took place in the Crystal ballroom. The room itself is exquisite, but the chairs and impressive Chuppah, a Jewish marriage canopy symbolizing the new home that the couple will build together, made it that much more beautiful. After they exchange their vows to one another, Andrew happily smashed a glass with his foot, kissed his bride and then lead his new wife down the aisle.
Then everyone made their way downstairs to a cocktail hour, complete with first class hors d’oeuvres. Meanwhile the Brown staff along with Ellen Fox of ShaFox Events transformed the Crystal ballroom preparing it for the elegant dinner reception. Andrew and Amanda took a sneak peek at the room and even made time for a couple pictures before the guest made their way to their seats. After the scrumptious multi-course dinner there were toasts, the cutting of the cake and the first dance. Then with all the formalities out-of-the-way the live band got the party started with what is personally my favorite part of Jewish marriage ceremonies my, the Hora. It is a lively dance that involves circling around the couple and then eventually hoisting them above the crowd on chairs. It always makes for great images and is so much fun to be apart of! To my surprise the dance floor was filled with a similar level of intensity for almost the entirety of the night. This crew would not stop dancing for anything it seemed! The whole day was a joy to photograph and I was honored to be apart.
