Madeline + Delmer: Tower Park Mess Hall Wedding Day // Ft. Thomas, Kentucky

I’ve been looking forward to Madeline & Delmer’s wedding day for SO long now and I’m so excited to finally share the photos from it with you! A past bride of mine (s/o to Cara! You’re the best!) actually referred Maddie to me and, while I was in Las Vegas for Cara’s elopement, I got to spend a lot of time with Maddie. I had the best time getting to know her better and knew that her wedding day would be an absolute blast. I can now confirm that it was even better than expected!

I started the day off by meeting Maddie & her bridesmaids at the cutest little Airbnb. This was such a great group of girls to work with and I loved being surrounded by all the fun they created. Once they were ready, Delmer & his groomsmen arrived at our Airbnb and it was time for their first look! Even though this first look didn’t go as planned, it was beyond perfect for Maddie & Delmer and I love that you can look at these photos and feel what they're feeling. After their first look we took a few couples portraits on the Airbnb balcony and then headed to the venue!

Maddie & Delmer had their ceremony at Tower Park in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky and celebrated their reception in the Ft. Thomas Mess Hall with their friends and family afterwards. Once we made it to Tower Park, we started taking bridal party & couples portraits. We had such a beautiful day and I love love love how much this bridal party let themselves laugh and have fun! Even though I had been to several weddings here as a guest, it was so much fun to photograph a wedding here because there are SO many gorgeous locations in this park!

After finishing up with portraits, it was time for the ceremony. Maddie & Delmer wrote the sweetest personal vows and filled their ceremony with a great mix of laughter and tears. Their guests were getting so emotional and it was the sweetest thing ever! Even though thunder started rolling into the park, the weather ended up being absolutely perfect for this ceremony. After the ceremony we finished taking family photos (but those are for Maddie & Delmer to share!) before heading back up the hill to the reception!

Maddie & Delmer set up their reception with the cutest lavender & greenery details. After their bridal party made their big entrance, Delmer made his big entrance and we all waited for Maddie to come in and join the party with her entrance (if you know Maddie, you know she’s always running late!) Maddie & Delmer went straight into their first dance, we had a great time with a guest photo line, an awesome dinner, the sweetest speeches, a joint father/daughter & mother/son dance, and then it was time to party! Maddie & Delmer had EVERYONE out on the dance floor and the rest of the night is history! This reception was SO much fun and I love how you can see it in their photos!

Maddie & Delmer, thank you SO much for trusting me to capture such a fun and special day for you two! I had the best time and am so excited for you two to start this new married life together! Congratulations, again!
