While hiking at Red River Gorge, Cameron suggested that Kelsey take a few pictures of the beautiful sunset on his GoPro. When she turned around, he handed her a book titled Our Story, filled with pictures and important dates in their relationship. On the last page was a picture of Cameron down on one knee in the exact spot where they were standing with the question “Will you marry me?” Little did Kelsey know, Cameron had set the GoPro to record the entire moment.
Cameron was born in Campton while Kelsey was born in Richmond. He attended Morehead State; she went to EKU. They both moved to Lexington for their careers, but didn’t meet until mutual friends in Louisville introduced them. The Wildcat fans love hiking, kayaking and visiting local breweries and restaurants. Naturally their wedding was purely Kentucky. Kelsey had always dreamed of getting married in her hometown and Chenault Vineyards provided a beautiful backdrop for their special day.
While getting ready, Kelsey’s maid of honor, Megan Tracy, presented her with a “Letters to the Bride” book. It was filled with notes from her groom, close family members and the bridesmaids. Cameron gifted his bride a pair of Kendra Scott earrings and a necklace featuring her birthstone. She gave him a MVMT watch and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.
The bride wore an ivory gown with romantic lace details in a trumpet silhouette. She carried her great aunt Mary Jo’s handkerchief, a coin owned by her grandparents and the pearl earrings her mother wore for her own wedding 29 years before. Kelsey’s bouquet featured white, pink and coral blooms.
The bridesmaids wore dresses in mauve with convertible necklines. They each carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas and baby’s breath. The groom and groomsmen wore navy suits with floral ties, and their looks were completed with baby’s breath and rope boutonnieres.
Kelsey and Cameron had planned to exchange their vows in front of a cross, draped with hydrangeas, roses and greenery, that stood before a beautiful, sweeping view of the vineyard. When rain put a stop to that, they moved ceremony inside their reception hall in front of a wall with a water feature. “Don’t worry about what might happen and enjoy what is happening,” Kelsey advised. “You’re marrying your soulmate!”
She walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of “Here Comes the Sun” and they braided a cord of three strands as a symbol of their unity. Kelsey remembered, “I was a little excited to be the new Mrs. Dunn that before our officiant even announced us as husband and wife I was already turning around with Cameron with hands up celebrating!”
Baby’s breath and candles floated in vases, illuminating the reception tables, which were decked with navy tablecloths and gold chargers. An old window pane bore photos of lost loved ones who could not be with the couple on their wedding day. The couple’s guestbook was a bourbon barrel head, which now serves as decoration in their home together. A “Let Love Glow” sign directed guests to pick up glow sticks to use while dancing the night away and to hold up during the couple’s big send-off at the end of the extraordinary night.
