Behind the Scenes: Megan and David's Wedding

Posted by

The new summer issue has the chic, modern, and simply stunning wedding of Megan and David. Genevieve and I were on hand to capture the big day and all the details, and in the process captured some behind-the-scenes pics. We also got to explore Louisville together for the first time. Check out all of that in the gallery below. And as for that penguin above? The signature bird adorns various rooms at the couple's venue, 21C Museum Hotel. The top row was snapped pre-wedding, while the bottom shows the penguin getting down during the reception. Even plastic animals had fun at this one!

Glasses from Dwell Studio held votive candles. They reflected a warm glow and added a fun geometric pattern to the cocktail tables.

The kiddos who came to the wedding got mini Louisville Slugger bat keychains. Just down the street is the factory, where a massive bat sits in front of the building.

There's an art installation of suitcases outside of the hotel's entrance. I jokingly tried to lift one of these cement trunks, to no avail.

  • I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page
    layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
