Bernardine + Desmond

It gives me such great pleasure in sharing these beautiful photos from Judah Avenue Photography of Bernardine and Desmond’s wedding.  When Bernardine reached out to me, she only had an idea of where she wanted her wedding.  We hit it off immediately and got to work right away because we only had about 5 months to plan the wedding.  We carefully selected each vendor to bring Bernardine’s “Kentucky Meets Kenya Wedding”.  We think it turned out quite beautifully.  Scroll to the end for the list of creative partners that help make this wedding amazing.
