Justin & Lisa-I’ll Never Let You Get Eaten By Sharks

I think you would have to look very hard to find another couple like Lisa & Justin. These two were so much fun. We hit it off with them right away and couldn’t wait to follow them around on their wedding day.

They decided to have their wedding celebration at the beautiful Henry Clay in Downtown Louisville. We were able to show up during their preparations and capture some of the moments before the ceremony. I love being in the room during the preparations because there is an excitement and anticipation in the air. Lisa and Justin were surrounded by their family and closest friends as they made their preparations for the ceremony.

While Lisa was with the hair stylist, her mother came into the room with a giant stack of Hallmark cards from Justin. Each one written to Lisa for some time in the future, like when she needs a laugh or when she lands her dream job. Here’s a peek at the card he wrote for her to open on their wedding day.


The ceremony was held in the Beaus Arts Ballroom under a hand-made Chuppah that Lisa’s grandmother had created years ago for all the future generations to gather under for their weddings. Lisa’s wedding ring was crafted from both of her grandmothers’ wedding rings. And then there was the vows. We had spoken with the two of them about writing their own vows and they decided to run with it. Their vows were personal and funny and touching all at the same time. The guests went from tears to laughter and back again. Bed, Bath and Beyond even got a mention in the vows! (but you’ll have to watch the film to see how that happened).



The Grand Ballroom at The Henry Clay is where the reception celebration was held. And since Lisa’s favorite food is pizza, they had the chef at Silver Spoon create gourmet pizzas for dinner. Yum!
