Ebenezer Cemetery Keene KY
When Jamie first told me she’d be getting married at Ebenezer Cemetery, I was a little surprised.
We really hadn’t had a wedding in a cemetery before.
It turns out the cemetery houses the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church, and Jamie’s family has been responsible for maintaining the property for decades.
The old chapel is built with brick and sandstone, creating a stunning backdrop for all sorts of authentic, emotive wedding photographs.
Adding to it was the fact that Jamie’s grandfather had been buried the year prior in that very cemetery.
Both Jamie and Cameron couldn’t wait for the ceremony to begin so they could say their vows and officially become man and wife.
We asked them a few questions about the day… here’s what Jamie had to say.
Did anything unexpected happen? What was the outcome?
The ring bearer was having a meltdown outside of the church while one of the groomsmen was trying to open the door. My dad ended up holding onto the door handle so the groomsman couldn’t get it open, but to everyone in the church it looked like the groomsman couldn’t get the door open.
The pastor already had the rings in case we had a meltdown, for anyone wondering
Everything was fine after the door was opened. It ended up being the talk of the wedding, and a great memory.
Were you nervous? How did you squash those nerves?
We were both nervous until the incident with the door not getting open. Having that moment of comic relief helped.
What song did you walk down the aisle to?
Cannon in D by Johann Pachelbel
What are you most looking forward to as a married couple?
Settling into a new place with a baby on the way!
What was your wedding inspiration?
The church. It’s beautiful by itself, and we did not really have to decorate that much.
What’s your wedding song and the significance?
10,000 Hours by Dan & Shay feat. Justin Bieber. There was no real significance to this song (as bad as that sounds).
We were just having trouble picking a song that we both liked.
What advice do you have for anyone getting married?
It is what it is. Life is going to go unexpectedly, and whatever happens just make the most of it.
How did you feel at the end of the day?
Relieved that it all went well. Not everything went as planned, but it ended up being perfect.
We were so lucky to be a part of this day and couldn’t be happier for both Jamie and Cameron as they grow their family 🙂
