Nick and Wendy’s Wedding at the Seelbach Hotel in downtown Louisville was an elegant occasion. Every detail had been thought through to ensure this couple would be celebrated in style. First of all they chose an excellent venue. As a Louisville wedding photographer I often get to photograph at the historic Seelbach Hilton and I never get tired of it. It helps give every image a good bit of sophistication even before you add an attractive woman in an elegant dress. That being said, Wendy was a truly beautiful bride and her jewelry, dress and accessories only helped to make that more evident. I love that she even got a tuxedo for her dog. One of my favorite images from the day is the one of Nick and Wendy looking at one another with their endless reflections in the mirrors. All the festivities took place in the Grand Ballroom up on the 10th floor with a beautiful view of the city and the late afternoon sunlight. The elegant room has palladium windows, massive crystal chandeliers, marble wall accents and a welcoming fireplace. It’s no surprise that it was featured in The Great Gatsby as the setting for a wedding. After the ceremony everyone headed out into the foyer for a cocktail hour while the room was transformed into an opulent reception with beautiful center pieces and an excellent meal that would rival that of many good steak houses. They invited a lively band and the dance floor was moving throughout the evening. Nick even got on stage to play the cowbell. Everyone had such a great time.
