WOW Wedding: Abbey and Cameron

Amanda Harper


It All Started In High School..

It’s a classic love story: a pair of high school sweethearts. “We started dating freshman year and haven’t looked back since,” Abbey said. “We have grown up together here in Lexington and knew there was no other place we would rather say ‘I do.’”

The couple chose Limestone Hall for its modern feel. Located right in the heart of their favorite city, the venue offered the perfect backdrop for their “whimsical winter wonderland” wedding aesthetic. To achieve that, they added touches of cinnamon rose and champagne tones with lots of flowers to fill the space.

As a wedding photographer, Abbey found inspiration throughout her career. “I have seen it all. I took little things from each that I knew I wanted to incorporate – or knew that I didn’t want to incorporate – and made it our own,” she said. “Although I’ve been to countless weddings, ours will forever be my favorite!”

The couple faced unique challenges due to Covid. The governor announced another state shut down just two weeks prior to their wedding. “After months of stress, we cut the guest list to just family and the bridal party and carried on with it. It couldn’t have been more perfect, and I have never felt so much love!” Abbey added, “Covid had a funny way of wrecking all of our plans but making everything turn out better than I could’ve ever thought. I absolutely loved having an intimate ceremony and keeping the focus on each other rather than trying to please others.”

Of course, the day wasn’t without mishaps. The maid of honor actually fainted in the middle of the ceremony! They walked her out, and when she was feeling ready to go back, Abbey walked her in and joked, “2020 weddings, man!”

“There are no ‘right’ rules when it comes to your wedding. Get married where you want, invite who you want, don’t stress the little things,” Abbey advised. “Oh, and hire a videographer! It will be so fun to look back on each year to come – and we can’t wait to show our kids exactly how cool their parents were!”

In April, the couple held a reception at Limestone Hall for their family and friends. They danced the night away and celebrated their love all over again. “I truly think we got the best of both worlds,” Abbey said. “I even got to wear my wedding dress twice! Like, who else gets to say that?”
