Oh, the kindness and joy from these two. If I could bottle it up, I’d be the luckiest. I was embraced by tight, warm hugs from Susan and Ward on their wedding day when I showed up to each of their getting ready locations – getting to know them at our first meeting, and then their engagement session was like this, as well, and the months of emails leading up to the big day was full of excitement and trust (seriously, the BEST feeling for a wedding photographer) – they are truly salt-of-the-earth kind of people, the most genuine as they come.
It should come as no surprise, then, that on their first date Ward promised Susan a life full of adventure. Susan took that to heart and a few days later, texted Ward on a whim to go line-dancing with her and he said yes! They had a blast and Ward’s original sentiments rang true as every day has been an adventure for them. It should also then come as no surprise that these two kind, free-spirited souls love to travel (speaking right to my heart!). While on vacation in Santorini, Greece, Ward proposed to Susan between bottles of wine at a cliffside restaurant at sunset. They married at the Showbarn at Keeneland Race Track in Lexington, Kentucky surrounded by everyone they love from all over the world, and even had an amazing travel theme throughout the day.
I couldn’t be more thrilled for you guys, Susan and Ward – here’s the the greatest adventure yet! xo
