This past weekend was a busy one for me. As a Knoxville wedding photographer I traveled to Louisville, Ky for the wedding of Kristen and Jack. You might remember them from December when we shot their engagement pictures in not so ideal weather. It was in the 40s and windy the last we met. This weekend was a little different. Though the rain visited just enough to bless the wedding day with a little luck, the day and event was beautiful with the skies clearing and the seas smooth. The day started with the token disaster, Kristen’s Mom left the steam machine under the fire detector in the hotel we were all staying at. As a result she got to meet allllll of the guests at the hotel along with a letter from the management apologizing for the incident. Thank god she wasn’t allowed in the wheel house. The wedding was held at the Captain’s Quarters, a nice restaurant and bar with a hint of sea sense.
Since the last time I had seen Kristen and Jack, Jack has graduated Law School. They plan to open practice in western Kentucky where Kristen teaches Special Ed kids.
Located on the Ohio River, the second half of the Kristen and Jack experience was on the water aboard the CQ Princess, skippered by Capt. Todd Kurger. The CQ Princess took a three hour tour down the Ohio to downtown Louisville, then turned around and paddled home to the good ‘ol Captain’s Quarters. The cruise was a blast as evidenced by the wedding goers tearing down the house, or rock’in the boat should I say. Here are some momentos from the voyage.

Jack’s Mom gave a very special gift to jack, just before he got dressed for the wedding. It was a pair of cufflinks from his deceased dad.
