Danielle & Kyle

April 20, 2021

A Spring St. Francis de Sales and Commonwealth Event Center Wedding in Paducah Kentucky

Oh what a marvelous wedding full of so much love!! Ahh!! Danielle & Kyle’s celebration was a spectacular showcase of pure joy!! From their giddy giggles to their sweet snuggles…everything was perfect!! We just love these two oh so much!! I could not have chosen a better couple or wedding to start off my 2021 wedding season with!

Their ceremony took place at the gorgeous St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Downtown Paducah, which is why we decided to do ALL portraits – bride & groom and bridal party – downtown. A few of my favorite locations downtown look best in spring and I was so jazzed when Danielle & Kyle left the portrait locations up to me!

The reception took place in the newest venue in Paducah, The Commonwealth Event Center… which so happens to also be my favorite venue! Can you blame us for loving it so much? It literally has everything any bride or photographer could want! Danielle and her girls chose to get ready in the bridal suite at the Commonwealth since it’s already included in the venue fee. After the first part of the morning we all headed downtown for one of my favorite parts of the whole day – the bride & groom first look! Danielle later we counted that Kyle was as shocked about seeing her in her gown as she hoped he would be. From that point on he would tell anyone that would listen “I am getting ready to have a HOT wife!” After the ceremony it changed to “I HAVE a hot wife!!!” I simply could not get over his adoration of his new bride! It might possibly be my favorite element of their whole day!

Danielle is from Paducah while Kyle is not. They met at the University of Tennessee but currently work in reside in Atlanta. As you can imagine their friends and loved ones traveled from all over to celebrate this day with them and it was so heartwarming! Danielle and Kyle’s wedding day was a day that every bride and groom wishes they could have to start the newest chapter together!
