Southern Classic Wedding at the Louisville Boat Club
You could FEEL the excitement. Autumn was finishing hair and makeup and every few minutes she would pause and say, "I'm getting married today!!" Today was THE day. The day she took his last name forever. The day she would marry her best friend. The day she would become his wife. During bridal portraits, Autumn looked at me and said, "Naomi, I'm getting married today!! I just have the biggest butterflies I am SO excited!!!" I think that is evident by the smile that was on her face all. day. long. Even during the family portraits, I asked Autumn, "Do your cheeks hurt from smiling yet?!" And her response? "Yes but I can't imagine NOT smiling for one second on this perfect day."
I'll never forget heir beautiful outdoor ceremony, overlooking the river. Once her daddy, the first man she ever loved, gave her away to the man she would love for the rest of forever, Autumn was SO excited. They were finally holding hands. Finally together. They wanted SO badly to kiss and Autumn leaned in and realized "oh we can't do that yet!!" so Travis pulled away and kissed her hand instead. I don't think anyone would have blamed them for skipping the order of the ceremony...except maybe Pastor K 😉
Autumn & Travis, I don't know where to begin!!! I am SO grateful for you both! I have loved watching your love for each other and your love for the Lord grow during these last few years and big seasons of life change. Autumn, don't ever ever stop being 100% unapologetically YOU! Your southern charm and classy taste are a force to be reckoned with but even more so is your beautiful heart and joy for life, put it all together, it's one heck of a combination. You think of every little detail (down to the watercolor monogram crest & Jones Soda Bottles!) and I love that about you. I can't wait for holiday parties at your place with the most adorable place settings and desserts, I love how you celebrate EVERYTHING!! You are so beautiful but your heart accentuates your outer beauty. Don't ever stop being Trav's biggest cheerleader. His biggest fan. Oh Travis...there are so many memorable one-liners from the wedding day but I promised your wife I wouldn't share those on the blog 😂 What can I say? You've come a long way from using asthma inhalers as a pick up line. I love how you make Autumn roll her eyes but then giggle at what you said. Keep making her laugh! You make her so proud to be your wife. Don't screw that up!! 😜 Love you guys SO much!!!
