Emma and Matt were married on a beautiful summer day in Lexington, Kentucky at The Polo Barn at Saxony Farm. Emma looked gorgeous in her lace dress. Her girls wore mismatched long dresses, and their bouquets were filled with roses and colorful flowers. Matt and his groomsmen looked dapper in their classic black tuxes. Emma and Matt shared a sweet moment before their ceremony holding hands around a corner. They held each other tight with their eyes closed since they didn’t want to see each other before the ceremony. The ceremony was outside surrounded by a canopy of trees and hydrangea bushes. Matt and Emma stood in front of some vintage doors dressed in flowers that were made by Emma. Together, they spent some moments celebrating as husband and wife under the warm golden sun surrounded by rolling hills and fence lines. Their reception was in a large barn with tables dressed in white tablecloths, gold accents, candles, and floral centerpieces. Emma and Matt danced the night away with family and friends celebrating. We were so honored that they chose us to capture their special day. We have loved getting to know them this year and hearing all about their love story.
Their love story first began on their first day of CIS 110 freshman year at the University of Kentucky. Matt was studying music and Emma was studying nursing. So fate would have that this class would be their only overlapping class. Their first date was ordering Chinese food to the dorm and eating it by candlelight with birthday candles in dixie cups.
Matt knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Emma. So on December 23, 2017, Matt suggested that they visit UK’s campus to see all of the new renovations that had occurred since they left UK. During their freshman year, they would take walks around the bowl next to the Willy T. Library. So they relived these memories by taking another walk. While they walked, they talked about the holidays. Emma mentioned how she stole Matt the previous Thanksgiving and how he was stealing her that Christmas away from her family. After walking for a while, Matt stopped and hugged Emma tight to keep her warm. Emma could hear Matt’s heart racing and said, “WOW, your heart is RACING!” Matt then got down on one knee and asked if he could steal her for the rest of her life. She, of course, said, Yes! Congratulation Matt and Emma! We want to wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and adventure. You two are perfect together, and we are so happy that you have found each other.
