Wayne and Tim were married in Smiths Grove, Kentucky at Rockin’ Ronda Repurposed to support one of the local businesses they adore.

Small, yet meaningful, elements that made their wedding one of kind — just like their love.
Katie and Rich were married at Montague Tree Farms, the place where Katie grew up, surrounded by 25 of their closest friends and family.
