Oxmoor Garden & Estate Wedding in St Matthews, Kentucky

What a beautiful day this one was! Matt and Claire are every photographer’s dream couple. They’re laid back, ready to have fun and some of the kindest, down-to-earth people we’ve met.

They got married at a gorgeous venue outdoors, but the mansion indoors was beautiful as well. Oxmoor Garden & Estate holds the largest private library in Kentucky and we definitely took advantage of it! We chose to do the first look indoors because of the library & hot temps outdoors. The ceremony took place on the back lawn which was decorated with bright, colorful wildflowers supplied by Pure Pollen. Afterwards, there was plenty of live music and celebration at the reception. At sunset, we snuck Claire and Matt away to grab some couple portraits of them.

Fun story: this wedding was actually a big turning point in photography for us! This was Trent’s first wedding he shot and the start of me training him as my second shooter for the rest of 2018. Trent and I wanted to be together since I was still recovering from some mental side affects from a car accident and a broken foot, so I talked to Claire about him coming along just to take photos on a backup camera for fun. When I was going through the photos he took, I was shocked to see how good Trent’s pictures were! That was the start of Trent & Kendra Photography. If you’d like a blog post telling more about this, let me know!
