Talon Winery Lexington Kentucky
How They Met
Laura recalls the day she met Blake as one of the best of her life, and an easy day to remember since it was her 23rd birthday. In order to celebrate, she and her roommate decided to head to Campus Pub in downtown Lexington with some of their mutual friends from work at Bank of America. Invited by one of Laura’s mutual friends, when Blake walked into the bar, there was an instant spark. After taking a group photo, Laura asked for everyone’s contact to text them the photo. The next day Blake contacted her and they have been together ever since.
In their third year together, Blake and Laura had gotten into the habit of attending Raft Up on Lake Cumberland. Laura was confused that all the girls wanted to have their nails done before the weekend, but she went along with them to Frenchies Modern Nail Care. The first evening, everyone went to the top of the house boat to watch the sunset. Little did Laura know that when Blake came up behind her he was going to propose. He dropped to one knee and presented her with a two carat solitaire ring from Rivards Fine Jewelry.
The Big Day
Laura wanted to have elegant wedding photos to hang in the home she and Blake built, so they decided to hold their wedding and reception at Talon Winery in Richmond, Kentucky. Preparation of the ladies for the day was done by the very talented ladies from Studio J Salon. Laura wore a stunning mermaid cut dress from Gretchen Reece Bridal Couture. Blake and the men prepared at Blake and Laura’s home, arriving an hour before the ceremony began.
As Laura walked down the aisle, Blake looked toward his future, tears of joy falling from his eyes. Their vows were filled with laughter and promises of a life filled with fun. During cocktail hour, the bridal party took their group photos, then Blake and Laura had a portrait session in the vineyards of Talon Winery. An epic sunset finished out their session as they walked into their reception to celebrate becoming man and wife.
Laura and Blake are one of the most fun couples we have had the pleasure of working with. We can’t wait to see what they do in the future and we wish them every happiness.
