Wedding :: Whitney Miller and Dave Olszewski's Lovely Spring Wedding at Spindletop Hall, Lexington, Kentucky

Two weeks ago I enjoyed photographing a beautiful wedding on the most glorious spring day at Spindletop Hall.  It was my first time shooting an event as this location and I certainly hope it isn't my last!  It was the most lovely, perfectly "Lexington" place ... and it set the tone for a perfectly "Lexington" wedding including a horse and carriage and royal Kentucky blue details.

Describe the proposal: We were visiting Washington DC and Dave was constantly looking for a good place to propose, but I kept ruining it in true fairy tale fashion. Every time he would hold my hand or try to say something nice and romantic I would laugh at him and shrug it off. Even when he tried to take me to a nice dinner, I was tired and refused to go anywhere that I would have to shower for. So, he ended up proposing in the hotel room. But considering our relationship, it was perfect.

What was the funniest thing that happened? A tie between the flower girl not wanting to walk down the aisle because she wanted to feed the pony and me forgetting my vows.

Tell us about your wedding music choices (ceremony, first dance, etc) The first dance was a bit of a surprise, I let Dave pick it so there was a 50/50 chance that it was going to be funny or serious, he picked Al Green ‘Let’s stay together’.

For Father Daughter dance, we did The Temptations ‘My Girl’ because that had always been our song since I was a little girl.
