An Intimate Country Wedding at a Private Residence in Lexington, Kentucky

For Kelsey Russell (26 and a customer strategy professional) and Brandon Russell (33 and a sales professional), getting married on Kelsey’s family's farm in Lexington, Kentucky, was a natural choice. “Living on a farm is much of who I am,” Kelsey says. “The wedding was set to be outdoors on the top of the hill in the middle of the farm, overlooking a number of other Kentucky farms.” Kelsey’s father built the gazebo where she and Brandon were married by a family friend and exchanged their original vows. At the tented reception, planner Jenny Bennelson helped Kelsey and Brandon pull off a rustic-chic atmosphere with burlap decor accented by crisp white and touches of bright spring colors. Their wedding was full of personal touches, from the sentimental flower choices by Carol Lynn Events included in Kelsey’s bouquet to the quilt square guest book and even Coca-Cola cans with Kelsey and Brandon’s nicknames. “It was meant to be an intimate, meaningful event for all involved, and it totally was,” Kelsey says.
