Lexington Kentucky Wedding at Marriott Griffin Gate


Vanessa + Steve planned their Lexington Kentucky wedding from Chicago while she was helping the Chicago Cubs to their legendary 2016 World Series win.

“Every once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life,  love gives you a fairytale.”

Vanessa’s sister ended her sweet and tearful toast with that beautiful line that was so fitting for Vanessa + Steve. Vanessa’s mom was so over-the-moon watching her beautiful daughter marry such a great guy. Steve’s brother delivered a humorous and touching toast to his big brother.

Vanessa met Steve while they were working at DisneyWorld in Orlando. Vanessa noticed Steve from afar and the two of them starting chatting over email. Some of Vanessa’s friends decided to play cupid and arranged a group outing so that they could finally meet in person. It was interest at first email and love at first meeting. They were inseparable after their first date. Eventually they decided to move to Chicago and leave the magic kingdom behind. They went from the happiest place on earth to one of the most magical moments in sports history. Vanessa started working for the Cubs and helped the team during the long awaited win of the their first World Series in 108 years! Vanessa proudly showed off the ring that was given to everyone who worked for the Cubs during the 2016 season.

It was a magical day filled with many laughs from the Pastor who married them. He had been the pastor at the church where Vanessa grew up, so he added a warm personal touch. It lightly drizzled in Lexington all day, but after their ceremony the sun came out as we were taking photos, just like a fairytale. The newlyweds headed off to Hawaii for an amazing two week honeymoon.
