Lebanon Kentucky Wedding / Olivia + Ryan

Olivia + Ryan's Lebanon Kentucky Wedding/ Local and Destination Wedding Photographer Rebecca Beatty

I met both Olivia and Ryan at Casey + Frank's wedding last year, when Casey told me five minutes before the bouquet toss that Ryan was going to propose to Olivia O_O.

I'm the type of person that needs a heads up for something big like that lol so immediately I was freaking out! I wanted to capture it not only for my generous bride and groom, but also for the soon to be engaged couple.

Fast forward to August 5th, and the tables have turned. It's now Olivia and Ryan's big day! We started off in one of my favorite Salons!! I have shot a few different weddings there and every time I go there, I find more and more beauty there!

From the laughter, the gorgeous artist at the Salon, and each one of us talking about how hungry we are, it only made us women more excited when it was time to do the girl's portraits! I haven't always been a huge fan of maroon, but after this wedding, it's now one of my top three favorite colors!

Something else I noticed, a lot of couples are in love with the idea of a non-traditional first look! This is something that I always recommend couples to do! Even go forward with a First Look in general, or try this non traditional way of blindfolding the groom and you too just talking. Relaxing. Letting that moment sink in that you're about to tie the knot!

I could go on and on about how the simple details of this wedding was awesome, but instead you should look through their pictures and see the love that I captured! If you're interested in some of the venue or other vendors from this wedding, their links are posted below!! <3
