A Kentucky wedding

[soliloquy id=”4778″]Somethings old and somethings new

It is the stuff of fairy tales: two childhood friends take divergent paths only to find themselves reunited in their hometown and standing under a September sky exchanging wedding vows.

This Kentucky-style fairy tale belongs to Jasmine and Grant Eshman of Falmouth.

Flapper dresses, jewelry, hats, and adorned headbands took guests back to the Roaring Twenties. The bride was driven to the aisle in a 1929 Model A Ford. The couple was wed under a Bavarian-style gatehouse created by the bride’s father.

But in true Kentucky tradition, the wedding used more creativity than cash. The couple—joined by Jasmine’s mother, sister, and aunt—handmade the decorations. Guests received homemade jams in ornamented jars. The groom hand-built the dance floor complete with lighting and paper lanterns. The art-deco centerpieces were decorated tin can vases collected from family dinners.

“We had the wedding on our farm, which was very special to us,” says Jasmine. “The farm has been a favorite place for our family to gather for generations so there are a lot of sweet memories there.”

Family also made all the special touches possible.

“We grew up learning to make things and do things on our own,” Jasmine says. “That’s how our families are. Because of that we were able to put our own touch on everything. There are little bits of our family throughout the wedding.”

Congratulations to Jasmine and Grant, married September 13, 2014.
