Weddings at the Capital, Fall Edition

Posted on Sep 22 2014 - 7:36pm by katemelican

This weekend I attended a wedding for my cousin Jake and his beautiful bride Ali in Frankfort, Kentucky. I had been looking forward to this wedding for a while. Jake and Ali both have really unique and interesting styles and are really involved in the art and music scene in Louisville. I knew it was not going to be just a wedding, it was going to be an experience! The wedding and reception were located at a beautiful, historic and southern plantation style home on the Kentucky River. The weather was just perfect with a soft breeze coming in as the sun set. From left to right the venue was decorated to create a modern, vintage feel for the guests. Every detail was noticed from the stars that decorated the tree trunks, to the glitter of the centerpieces. You felt as if you were the characters in a storybook. Every page being a soft, water color painted image that told the story of a different character. There was a beautiful boho bride and a southern gentleman for a groom, flower girls who sprinkled their flower petals and dashed of to hide behind a bush, guest in lime green suits with dates that wore 1980’s dresses, puffy sleeves, big hair, clunky shoes and all. It was an eclectic image, but an image that replicated a vision and the perfect set for their love story to become official.

With the wedding being outside on a late summer night, it was hard to decide what to wear far ahead of time. Luckily, the weather was perfect. It was upper 70’s during the peak with it cooling down only a few degrees. I decided to wear my favorite Julie Brown dress. The dress could be great in the summer, but also worked for the fall because of the cream and navy shades throughout. Being in horse country and a horse lover, I love all equestrian prints and this shift features a great equestrian inspired print. I accessorized with Tory Burch basically from head to toe. I wore my new Tory Burch earrings that I posted earlier this week on Instagram (HERE), along with a gold Tory Burch Necklace that makes it into my outfits all of the time and a nude Tory Burch sandal.

I also wore a fun stack of gold bracelets that are great to have because they go with everything. The top is a Marc Jacobs gold link bracelet. I absolutely love the clasp on this one. I wore a Bourbon and Bowties Shot Gun Shell bangle in the middle for a balance between the top and the bottom. The top and the bottom were very similar is color and design, so they needed a contrast to separate them. The shape and variation the shot gun caps offered made it the perfect choice. The bottom is a Micheal Kors gold link bangle with a cute Micheal Kors logo tag.
