Emily + Ramsey – Wedding Highlights—8. 2. 2014

We arrived at Fairview Christian Church, a beautiful, white-steepled church nestled in the foothills of Kentucky, just moments before Emily + Ramsey’s first look. 
Ramsey shared how anxious he was with us, but as soon as he saw his lovely bride walk through the doors of the chapel he was beaming from ear to ear.

These two were so sweet the entire day. 
Everything about their Celtic-inspired ceremony was so heart-felt. 
From Emily’s mom walking her down the isle to her groom, to writing their own vows and promising them to one another, to incorporating the Irish tradition of “handfasting” into their ceremony.

As these two were hand in hand, Emily’s maid of honor wove the four chords around them; binding their hands together as “one.”

Their pastor explained:

“Irish celebrations are rife with symbolism and handfasting is no exception. Each chord or ribbons color is of symbolic meaning. Green: finances, fertility, charity, prosperity, and health. Blue: tranquility, patience, devotion, and sincerity. Grey: neutrality and balance. Silver: treasure, values, creativity, and inspiration.”

We wish all of this for Emily + Ramsey (and more) throughout their marriage.

From the church, we ventured to The Ridge Banquet Center, where the couple was greeted with a paper air plane entrance, beautifully decorated cupcakes all made by the bride’s mother, and so many smiling faces as their friends and family enjoyed a night of dancing and laughter with the two!

We felt incredibly honored that E + R asked us to film their wedding! 
We might love this video even more than we love OUR cats ;)
