Musings from a traveling, writing, photographing, 30-something.
This is belated and I apologize to those waiting to see new photos, but I am in school and it just got away from me.
In September I shot a wedding for a high school friend and her husband in Berea, Kentucky at the gorgeous Boone Tavern. The town itself is an accomplishment in progress as it is home to one of the first interracial universities in the world and the first in the Southern United States built in 1855, five years before the civil war began. Beyond that the University charges NO tuition and instead works with largely low income students from Appalachia where they work on campus and in the community to pay for their costs of attendance.
Boone Tavern was built as a tavern for visitors in 1909 and holds gorgeous rooms and hosts wonderful small weddings for an affordable rate. It was truly wonderful to get to shoot at the location and stay the night there due to its beauty, history, and character. Not to mention Southern hospitality is a real and truly wonderful thing.
Back to the reason I was there. The wedding was wonderful, sweet, loving and a hoot and a half. Not only did I get to take photos of a loving, fun and charming couple but I also got to spend time with a dear friend and her new family. Along with her daughter who I hadn’t seen since she was a baby, and her two step-daughters.
