Boone Tavern Berea College Berea Kentucky
How They Met
KaSandra and Joe Don were first introduced via a mutual friend. They actually didn’t meet in person, but rather had phone conversations since Joe Don was working for Fort Washington in Cincinnati and KaSandra was working at Shelby Valley Dental Clinic in Pikeville. They fell in love with each other via conversation and began making the trek back and forth from each others places, each sacrificing their time and energy for small, intimate moments together each weekend.
When Joe Don proposed with a 3 carat Rivard’s custom ring, KaSandra knew the perfect spot to be married. Her parents had gotten hitched thirty-one years prior in Danforth Chapel on the Berea College campus. The reception would have to be held in the intimate ballroom of Boone Tavern.
The Big Day
The elegant photography KaSandra longed for allowed us to find locations in and around Boone Tavern that complimented her tastes. Her dress, from Lace Bridal Couture, had an underlaying peach layer, perfectly complimenting her skin tone. Her peep toe Badgley Mischka heels, were encrusted with crystals to match the crystals on her puppies collar. KaSandra was surrounded by her closest family and friends as she prepared. She opted to do her own makeup, while Shear Expressions completed her look.
Joe Don’s brother helped him get dressed before he met his bride for a first look in Danforth Chapel. We traveled inside and out taking bridal party photos. The day had a heat index of 110, so staying cool was definitely a priority.
After a few family portraits, Joe Don and KaSandra entered their reception and immediately cut their three tiered cake from Batter and Buttercream. Randy Carpenter had the whole dance floor rocking for the evening until a sparkler exit announced KaSandra and Joe Don’s happily ever after.
We are so thankful we were a part of their big day and could create the elegance they were looking for.
