We often talk about how much we love it when couples pull inspiration from their own stories for their wedding designs, and Mary Beth and Nicholas are a perfect example! Mary Beth said she wanted their evening to feel lush and elegant, like a “black tie version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” They filled the Oxmoor Estate and Gardens with white flowers and lots of greenery, and even had a hanging garden hovering above their dance floor! But the true inspiration for their verdure reception stems from their proposal, where Nicholas jokingly used a blade in place of a ring! By mixing various grasses into the design, they created a dreamy reception with heartfelt meaning. It was the best of both worlds!

Thanks to Bella Grace Studios for sharing Mary Beth and Nicholas’ wedding day with us in our last print issue!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. What was your favorite thing about it? After trying on about 100 dresses (no joke!), I finally found a custom gown at Jin Wang’s studio in San Francisco that I loved. Jin started telling me about the creative process for a custom gown right then, and I was sold. We worked on it together for the better part of a year; it’s such an intense process, but totally worth it as I was so thrilled with the final product. The front of the gown was very simple and the back was accented with gorgeous, ethereal organza details and a long train. The back of the gown was definitely my favorite part!

Since we got married outside at a gorgeous estate with beautiful gardens, I really wanted to keep our flowers simple, but elegant. My planner chose gorgeous blooms in whites and greens. I carried a bouquet composed of white peonies, David Austin garden roses, stock, hydrangeas, and astilbe. The blooms were held together by lace from my mother’s wedding dress and an Italian handkerchief she had given me that morning. Each bridesmaid carried a unique mono-floral grouping of blooms ranging from hydrangeas, stock, peonies, roses, tulips, and calla lilies. I loved this detail, as I think it really complemented the various dresses the girls chose.

Describe your bridesmaids’ dresses. How did you choose them? Having such a large bridal party, I wanted to keep everything simple and soft so that the colors from the garden would really pop, so I asked each of my 13 bridesmaids to choose their own dress in any shade of nude. Designers ranged from Carven to Reformation to La Perla to Stone Cold Fox, among others, and the final product was flawless.
What did the groom and groomsmen wear? Since our wedding was black tie, all 13 of our groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos. Nick wanted to stand out, however, so he chose to wear a formal ivory dinner jacket. I personally loved this detail, as it was a very Southern choice for my very Northern groom.

We considered several different locations for the wedding, including Hotchkiss, Jackson Hole, and Beaver Creek, but when I went to Louisville for my best friend Barrett’s birthday, it just felt like the perfect place, as it’s the city I grew up in and a place that few of my friends had visited before. Seeing Oxmoor Farm for the first time really sealed the deal for me, as it made me feel as if I would be inviting guests into my own home.

Tell us a bit about the wedding ceremony. What part was most special to you? Did you include any special readings? The ceremony was one of the most special parts of the day for me! I will never forget the feeling I had watching Nick’s face as I walked down the aisle, since he rarely gets emotional, but was definitely a bit teary-eyed in that moment. We asked Nick’s future brother-in-law to do a reading and he chose Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116, which was absolutely perfect for us. Another favorite detail was the recessional–we had our string quartet play the chorus of Donna Lewis’ “I Love You Always Forever,” a song Nick and I both adore.
Did you write your own vows? Nope, we chose to keep our vows traditional. Sweet and simple!

What was the design inspiration for your wedding? Why was this design special to you as a couple? If I had to pinpoint exactly where my inspiration came from, it would probably be a black tie version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”–I wanted the whole evening to feel elegant and lush, with traditional white flowers and tons of greenery everywhere. Since Nick proposed with a blade of grass, I also really wanted various grasses to be mixed into the design, which ended up looking fantastic and feeling meaningful.

I had so much fun at our reception. We had a separate tent for dinner and dancing, and my planner, Lauren Chitwood, did a wonderful job executing my décor vision. I wanted our guests to feel like they were walking into a scene straight out of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” when they entered the tent, and it really did feel just like that–white flowers and greenery everywhere, with a stunning hanging garden over the dance floor. For dinner, we served a summer zucchini ribbon salad with burrata to start, followed by herb and peppercorn encrusted strip steak over creamy cheese grits and spring vegetables. For dessert, we gave every guest a cupcake from Plehn’s Bakery, the very same bakery that made all of my birthday cakes growing up. The Sultans of Swing performed and did a fantastic job. Nick and I danced to Van Morrison’s “Wavelength,” which was one of my favorite parts of the whole night, and the Sultans kept people on the dance floor for the rest of the night playing everything from Frank Sinatra and Etta James to Bruce Springsteen and Justin Timberlake–they were seriously phenomenal. Since our best man and maid of honor had spoken the night before at our rehearsal dinner, my dad was the only person who toasted at the wedding. His speech was incredibly sweet and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only person who became teary-eyed!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We initially met as high school students at the Hotchkiss School, a boarding school in Lakeville, Connecticut, but didn’t start dating until six years later in New York after I literally ran into him and broke his sunglasses at my best friend’s house in Newport, Rhode Island. I was so embarrassed at the time, but turns out he wasn’t that phased, as we had a blast together that weekend and he asked me to drinks for the first time the following week!
Describe the proposal: It was a lazy, foggy Saturday morning at home in San Francisco, and Nick surprised me with breakfast in bed. This wasn’t that random, as he loves to cook, but this time, there was a little jewelry box on the tray with a blade of grass inside (I had always joked with my friends that I loved Nick so much that if he proposed with a blade of grass, I’d still say yes, so clearly, this story had gotten back to him!). After I opened that box and lost all ability to speak, he dropped down to one knee beside the bed and pulled out the real ring! We celebrated with friends the following day in Point Reyes, where we shucked and grilled oysters and drank copious amounts of rosé!
How did you prepare for marriage while planning your wedding? We did several premarital counseling sessions over FaceTime with our minister, my cousin Adam Webb, who lives in Atlanta. He had us read The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller. One of the biggest takeaways for both of us was to always aim to do some sort of unselfish act for the other person at least once a week. This simple, but thoughtful, task has already impacted our relationship in the best way!
How many guests attended your wedding? 185
Bride’s favorite detail of the wedding: My favorite details were the blade of grass motif that was carried through everything from the wedding invitations to the décor, the cupcakes from Plehn’s, and the handwritten notes on the escort cards that also served as dance cards. It’s an old-fashioned tradition for women to record the names of the gentlemen with whom she intends to dance at a formal ball, and so Nick and I thought it would be fun to create dance cards for all of our guests to encourage them to seek out dance partners and maybe even meet some new friends. Whether or not they actually found the people listed on their dance card, we’ll never know, but what we do know is that people were on the dance floor the entire evening!
Were there any family traditions you included in the ceremony? I originally wanted to wear “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” as my mother had done in her wedding. The lace from my mother’s wedding dress that was wrapped around my bouquet was my something old, the wedding dress was new, my mom’s diamond earrings were borrowed, and my sapphire engagement ring was blue. However, Nick surprised me with his grandmother’s earrings, so of course, I wore those instead of my mom’s!
Tell us about your wedding cake or sweets. Growing up in Louisville, I was lucky enough to have a Plehn’s Bakery cake every year for my birthday, so choosing a wedding cake was a no-brainer. Nick is totally obsessed with cupcakes, so rather than serve a traditional Southern groom’s cake, we decided to place a cupcake–either red velvet or lemon with cream cheese icing–on each guest’s plate after we cut the cake. Absolutely delicious!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We’re excited for everything about the future! As Nick always reminds me when I start to get sad that the wedding and honeymoon are over, these next few months are just the beginning of the rest of our lives! I can’t wait to see what happens for us professionally, I can’t wait to see where we end up buying a house, and I can’t wait to explore the world and raise a family together!

Have you heard? It’s Engagement Celebration Week! Whether you’ve been engaged for two days or twelve months, we invite you to join the party and celebrate like you said yes yesterday. Upload a proposal or ring shot to our hashtag, enter to win giveaways all week on Instagram, or take 20% off our wedding planner with code JOYFULLYENGAGED. We can’t wait to cheer you on!!

The first item most brides look to book is the wedding venue — and with good reason! Your venue sets the tone for everything that is to come, it often helps determine your wedding date, and it can take up a large chunk of your wedding budget. Many brides or grooms also often have a sentimental attachment to the spot they choose to say “I do,” so (as with many wedding decisions) there’s an additional emotional factor to consider.

Since we know many of you are at the beginning of your engagement (how exciting!!), we wanted to share some of the most important things to consider when choosing a wedding venue! To do so, we invited three of the event planners at Keeneland, one of Kentucky’s premier venues, to offer their tips, and combined them with some of the best info from the Joyful Wedding Planner. We’ve sprinkled a few lovely photos from Keeneland’s various venues throughout, too!

1. The Particulars of Your Wedding. Know your (approximate) guest count, (desired) date and (approximate) budget before starting the search. It’s okay to not have them all set in stone, but you want to have at least a ballpark for each! If you have any must-haves (great view, garden setting, white walls, etc.), write these down, too. Use this information to make a list of possible venues, then narrow it down to your top picks before scheduling tours.

2. Your Love Story. Do you have a special tie to a location or city? Your wedding should be filled with your unique love story, and your venue is a great place to start! The Keeneland folks love hearing from brides who met their fiancé on property, grew up coming to the track, or were proposed to in between races.

Nina and Wes

3. Catering. There are several benefits of choosing a venue with an in-house catering company (especially if it’s a fabulous one, like Keeneland’s!). Having the food prepared by an in-house team means you don’t need to create a kitchen from the ground-up, you usually don’t have to worry about renting china and silverware, and you know your venue and catering team will work together seamlessly. Of course, if you have a specific caterer you’ve been dying to work with, or you have a particular vision in mind (like food trucks), you’ll want to look for a venue that allows outside vendors.

4. Coordination. At Southern Weddings, we believe that every couple should have at minimum a day-of coordinator, even if it’s just a trustworthy and organized family friend. Whether you’re planning to hire a full-service planner or not, make sure that you meet with and get along with the venue contact who will be on site during your celebration! Ask what level of involvement they’ll have with your planning, too.

5. Venue Specifics. The frustrating thing about the wedding venue search is that you’re usually comparing apples to oranges, because every venue builds their packages differently and charges accordingly. Make sure to gather as much information as possible! In addition to our basic questions, below, here are a few next-level Q’s:

— How long do we have the venue on the day of our wedding? Will we have access early to set-up?
— Does our rental include tables, chairs, china, a dance floor, a stage, or any other rentals?
— How will our venue coordinator assist us?
— Do you have enough parking to accommodate our guest count? Do you require valet, and is it additional?
— Restrooms: are they big enough and nice enough for your taste?
— What is the rain plan?

6. Photos. Does the venue itself photograph well? Are there pretty spots for portraits? If not, is the surrounding area accessible, and a good fit for your aesthetic?

Thanks to the ladies at Keeneland for chiming in today with their expert advice! And remember: as you sift through information from your top picks, make visits to each, and consider your options, don’t be afraid to ask questions, get proposals, and use the expertise of the on-site coordinator!

Sending wishes that you all find your perfect wedding venue match as quick as a Kentucky thoroughbred! :)

This post is brought to you by Keeneland, a gorgeous wedding venue and iconic race track in Kentucky. Thanks for your support of the brands who make Southern Weddings possible!

    LOVE seeing our photographer friends and several past clients on Southern Weddings! The planners and staff at Keeneland are second to none and it is such an honor that we get to produce wedding videos at this beautiful Lexington venue!

If there was ever a couple who exemplified “Southern at heart,” it would be Katherine and Evan! While they may share Northern roots and an Indiana address (even after Evan “had sworn on his life he would never move back north”), their commitment to hospitality, love for tradition, and soft spot for Dixie staples like bourbon and chicken and waffles mean that they, and their dreamy wedding, would be right at home anywhere below the Mason-Dixon line. After a Catholic ceremony, they gathered their loved ones at a family friend’s property, which they transformed through incredible blooms by The Empty Vase, custom linens (that they now use in their home!), and tableware that would make any Southern belle’s heart skip a beat. Along with being completely gorgeous, their reception was also quite the party–Katherine remembers, “There was so much joy and relaxation happening in so many different ways for so many different people! We were overwhelmed with happiness!”

Thank you so much to Melissa Schollaert for sending this stunning celebration our way!

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Our calligrapher, Jane Farr, is a gem. I have always loved paper and knew that I would be so excited about these particular details. Every single item had custom calligraphy by Jane in a bespoke ink color (blue). Hand-drawn maps were carefully curated with places special to us – this was one of our favorite details! A favorite piece was probably the hand-drawn letterpress map that was included in our invitation suite – it displayed tons of hand-drawn places (from Indiana to Kentucky) and things that meant a lot to us (childhood homes, the Children’s Museum, where we met, Keeneland, Rupp Arena, the Tri Delta house, lake house, etc). It was so fun to be part of this creative process by sending her pictures of all the places we wanted her to draw/interpret. She did a different, abbreviated version as part of our itinerary bundle, which was placed in each welcome box. Both versions are framed in our office and we still receive comments about them to this day!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. What better excuse to get away to New York with two of your best friends (who just so happen to be your mom and sister) than to shop, eat, and drink lots of champagne? My family absolutely loves to travel, and my mom, sister, and I look forward to our annual “girls’ trips” (even though we all see each other almost every day as it is!). We flew to New York in early April and stayed at the Plaza for several nights. I only made appointments at small boutiques, and spanned them out over two days during our four-day trip. Careful to not rule too many styles out, I tried on a few dresses, and quickly fell in love with an A-line Oscar de la Renta gown with a sweetheart neckline and unique floral embroidery. According to my mom and sister, it was the only dress “I smiled” in. Ha! My hesitation over a strapless style was quickly solved, as the design team was able to create a customized gown from the initial design, but with beautiful, delicate straps. The dress was completed with a matching cathedral-length veil.

We went back and forth on whether or not we wanted to do a first look. We ended up going for it and are so glad we did! We knew that our private moments together throughout the day may be limited, so a first look was a great way to have that time together and to just temporarily freeze the day.

How did you plan for your marriage while planning your wedding? Evan and I had several premarital sessions with our deacon prior to getting married. We really enjoyed these sessions and learned so much about each other, including what makes us strong as a couple (which just so happens to be a lot of our differences). Getting to know Deacon Paul so well really created a truly intimate ceremony.

The decisions for the church and venue were simple. Evan comes from a devout Catholic family, so we decided early on that we would be married in a Catholic church. We chose St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, a beautiful old Spanish cathedral made of gorgeous limestone. The church captured the elegance, history, and spirituality that we could have only dreamed of! The reception location was also an easy choice. We have always wanted an outdoor reception, and a family member’s property was ideal. The property sprawls over several dozen acres on the north side of Indianapolis. The alley of oaks leading up to the farmhouse, paired with the rolling hills and wooded forest surrounding the estate made for the perfect setting – central Indiana with a touch of Kentucky, just like us!

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? My mom is from the South and moved to Indianapolis when she was a senior in high school. That said, she has spread a lot of that Southern charm and “way of life” throughout our family here in the Midwest! Between her Southern roots and my time spent living in the South, I have a special love and respect for Southern culture. We buried the bourbon for good luck, my sorority sisters serenaded me (a highlight of each Tri Delta’s wedding!), and everyone enjoyed quite an extensive bar with almost any type of bourbon you can think of. Evan was super surprised by his groom’s cake at our rehearsal dinner, which someone actually thought was a REAL Yeti cooler filled with ice, fish, and Evan’s favorite beer (all made out of cake and sugar!), while my bridesmaids enjoyed the cake pull at my bridal luncheon. Our cuisine was heavily influenced by the South, as well, featuring chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, and braised short rib. Overall, I would like to think that the weekend had a strong sense of Southern hospitality. We were so blessed to have people join us from near and far and wanted them to enjoy the weekend. Not only were we excited to get married, but we were excited to show people our city!

All of our amazing vendors and artists really created a day that had “us” written all over it. We had a tremendous amount of trust in all involved, specifically our event designer, David Jackson, and floral designer, David Strohmeyer of the Empty Vase. Both Davids (also known as “the Dream Team”) nailed it! In neo-English garden style, the bouquets and décor featured an eclectic mix of domestic European garden blooms, a smattering of exotics, and a variety of dark green foliage and vines. The design team also brought in trees, plants, and blooming plants to soften tent corners and to place around the property. A trellis was custom-made with green boxwood lattice squares to soften the back wall of the tent. One of my favorite parts of all the flowers was the stagecoach lantern in the cocktail tent that had blooms exploding from the top. We also had several large chandeliers in the dining tent overflowing with beautiful blooms. They were stunning, to say the least!

All of our linens for the cocktail tent and dining tent were completely bespoke. The coloring, embroidery, and fabric was all custom created. The hundreds of blue and white porcelain pieces and julep cups were all hand-selected for our wedding as well. It is so fun to use our linens to this day, and our home is affectionately dubbed “the House of Blues” because of all of our blue and white porcelain.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert. We had a delicious, five-tiered Limoncello cake with fresh blueberries and lemon curd.

What was the most memorable moment about your day? As dinner was coming to an end and Evan and I were mingling with our friends and family, we stepped aside together and took a look around. There were people laughing and enjoying the lounge area in the cocktail tent, we could hear children laughing and playing games in the children’s tent, people were strolling along the oak-row, hand-in-hand, my cousins were climbing in one of the huge, beautiful trees, people were on the dance floor, my other little cousins were pulling each other around in a red wagon down the driveway, champagne corks were popping…there was so much joy and relaxation happening in so many different ways for so many different people! We were overwhelmed with happiness!

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Evan was living in Nashville at the time and I was living back in Indianapolis. We are both from Indianapolis and both attended the University of Kentucky, and although we had many mutual friends, we never actually met in college. One weekend in July, he came home to Indianapolis to watch his parents’ dogs while they were on vacation. He found out a college friend of his was also in town and was staying with a friend: me. The next day, we were introduced at a festival downtown, and the minute I saw him, I was intrigued. We hit it off immediately. The first time I introduced him to my family, we quickly connected the dots and found that my mom was friends with his aunt, and my sister and I were friends with his cousins (we always joke that Indianapolis is a “big, small town where everyone knows everyone”). The only roadblock we had was geography – he was happy in Nashville, and had sworn on his life he would never move back north. Five weeks later, he was back in Indianapolis, and a year and half later, we were engaged!
Tell us all about the proposal! Evan’s proposal could not have been more perfect or meaningful. A little backstory: my family has been very civically involved with the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for seven decades, and of all the places I have been, I hold it closest to my heart. One evening in early December, Evan told me we were going to a private dinner at the museum that his boss had won at an auction. We entered the museum after hours through a side door and were led to the top floor, where the museum’s antique carousel sits. Evan walked me over to a horse on the carousel – Patty, named after my grandmother, who began my family’s love affair and involvement with the museum many, many years ago. He pointed out an envelope resting on top of the horse, and I was completely confused. He had me open the envelope and read the letter, meanwhile walking me to a balcony overlooking the museum’s atrium. Once I finished reading the letter (I have no idea what it said – my vision went blurry!), I looked down and saw Evan on one knee, with the entire museum as his backdrop. He proposed, and of course, I said yes. Once I came to my senses, I realized two of our closest friends were hiding in the background capturing the moment on film. We all laughed, and I cried, called my best friend (who had introduced us) and family and cried some more. As we made our exit from the museum, the most stunning snowflakes began to fall across the city, adding an exclamation point to the most perfect proposal.
When did y’all get married? June 13, 2015
How many friends, family and loved ones were in attendance? 300
Did you have something old, blue, and borrowed? Yes – I love a good tradition! My engagement ring is something old (vintage Harry Winston, circa 1960). My something blue was a monogrammed handkerchief (which came in great handy), hand-embroidered by a sorority sister. My pearl and diamond earrings were borrowed from my sweet sister.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Enjoy being engaged and try not to spend every second planning for the wedding; this made our meetings with David (our event planner) even more fun! We stayed off Pinterest and stuck to our vision. If you aren’t hiring a planner, rely on the expertise of your vendors, recommendations from people you trust, and your previous experience as a guest at others’ weddings. Keep things in perspective, and if you feel you’re getting stressed, remember, this is probably the only time in your life where your choices/obstacles will be around the perfect shade of French blue grosgrain or envelope liners. Lastly, no matter how big or small, grand or simple your wedding is, the best way to guarantee an incredible and memorable day for all is to let your love for each other show. If the bride and groom have fun, everyone is sure to!
What’s next for you as a couple? What memories do you have to look forward to? Our wedding was truly perfect! That said, once Evan and I got past the initial honeymoon weeks, our life opened up with this void of not having to plan a wedding, but we didn’t settle down at all. Within months of the wedding, we purchased our first home together – a historic Tudor just several blocks from the church…and the best brunch spot in town. Currently, our house is ruled by a chocolate lab named Tillie Padfoot, but our hope is that soon enough, Tillie will have another friend to boss us around, maybe one who looks a little more like Evan and me…until then, we’re living the life, doing what we love, and traveling as much as possible!
