Wedding at Ruby Lodge, Madisonville, KY, October 6. 2013

On Sunday, October 6, 2013, we found our way to Madisonville, KY to Ruby Lodge, a stunningly beautiful location overlooking a tree lined lake.  There we presided over the music for the wedding of Emily and Ryan. 

When we arrived the rain started coming down steadily making it impossible for us to set up where the guests were to sit.  Fortunately there was a tent set up just behind the guests and we were able to raise the tent side and safely play under cover.  However all turned out very nicely as the rain stopped shortly before the ceremony and the sun shone brightly.  Another plus for us was our view of the bride and groom with the lake as the backdrop.

Emily chose a mix of hymns and contemporary songs for the prelude and processionals.  Mothers processed to “Secret Wedding” (Braveheart).  The wedding party processed to “Only Hope” (A Walk to Remember) with the bride waiting for a particular part of that song to make her entrance (“singing with all that I am at the top of my lungs”).  Sister, Anna, did a beautiful job of singing “One Hand, One Heart” for a tree grafting unity ceremony.  I laughed out loud when Emily wrote that they would be doing some “light gardening” for their unity ceremony…and indeed they did.  They recessed to “Sweet Home Alabama” (one or both of them being an Alabama fan – Roll Tide!).  Oh, and another fun part of their ceremony included the entrance of their dogs in wedding attire.  Truly a sweet, fun and serious in all the right places wedding!

Congratulations to Emily and Ryan and their families!ImageImage
