Upon meeting in New York, Lizzy and Andy knew they wanted to be together, despite the fact that Andy was in the process of moving to London for work. After several flights across the Atlantic and back, Lizzy moved to England to be with Andy and took an internship with an interior design firm. Not long after, the two were engaged to be married.
Lizzy is from upstate New York and Andy from Kentucky. After exploring their options, the two decided to be married in Kentucky – on Andy’s family farm in Goshen and at the same Louisville church where his parents where married.
In their six-month engagement, Lizzy made just two trips back to Kentucky for whirlwind weekends with her planning team. The tent site was chosen, tabletop decor was selected, and details began to take shape. With Lizzy’s natural eye for style and detail, she knew she wanted a classic and romantic look that would still be reflective of Kentucky, the farm, while also incorporating the Fleur des Lis, a symbol of Louisville.
Subtle yet elegant linens from La Tavola were selected. Chargers on farm tables had the Fleur de Lis pattern and others featured a modern gold rim. Guests were given seating assignments on engraved copper mugs, a token for them to remember the weekend by. Florals were soft, delicate and natural, with many elements foraged from the farm.
The Hog Operation bluegrass band greeted guests upon their arrival at the farm. However, cocktail hour soon had to be shuffled into the house amid a huge southern thunderstorm, but no one let that dampen the celebration. The rain stopped, as it always does, and a perfect evening followed.
