Matt & Emily were married on March 27th, 2010. Their wedding ceremony took place on the front porch of an old stone, plantation style home on Griffith Ave. in Owensboro, KY. Griffith Ave. is known around the world for its stately, historic homes, and this wedding venue did not disappoint!

The couple wanted their wedding to be an intimate event with their closest family and friends. Emily best described her wedding syle as antique, classic, and timeless. Emily wore a gorgeous champagnestraplesswedding dress that she found at Abbingtons Bridal House. Her wedding hairstyle was classic and chic, all pinned back, adorned with a peach flower. The bride was inspired by the peach color found on antique cameos, and chose that as the main color for her bridal bouquet and wedding reception décor.

As the song “This Year’s Love” by David Gray was sung, the pearl pink ‘69 Chevy started to make its way down the long gravel driveway of the plantation home. The Chevy was chauffeured by the father of the bride as she sat in the passenger’s seat. Her car door was opened by her father, who then escorted her up the stairs of the front porch, to her groom. This was by far, the most beautiful, romantic entrance of a bride that I had ever seen.

Matt and Emily continued with the antique wedding vibe by having the dinner reception with their guests at The Miller House in downtown Owensboro. The reception décor was totally DIY made by the bride, who kept it simple, yet pretty. The wedding cake decorator, Genna Lewis who was also the bride’s sister, did a wonderful job with the wedding cakes and cupcakes. She even made the groom his own special cake highlighting his hobby… a paintball tank. The bride and groom’s evening ended as they exited under a canopy of sparklers that their guests were holding and drove off to their honeymoon in the ’69 Chevy!
