Spindletop Hall Wedding Venue
Nestled amidst the picturesque bluegrass region of Kentucky, a Spindletop Hall wedding stands as a symbol of timeless elegance and southern charm. It’s no wonder that couples from far and wide choose this venue to celebrate their love. Anne and Francisco were no different. Their Spindletop Hall wedding was bursting with color and filled with unforgettable moments making a vibrant and joyous celebration.
Spindletop Hall is a historic mansion that was built in the early 20th century. It offers an exquisite backdrop for weddings. Surrounded by lush gardens and towering trees a Spindletop Hall wedding exudes an air of sophistication and romance. The classic architecture, interior and manicured landscapes make it a dream location for any couple.
Bright Beginnings for Anne and Francisco
Anne and Francisco’ wedding design revolved around color and vibrancy! Bright blue, fuchsia and peach were the main colors used throughout the design. Francisco is from South America so this was incorporated into the lively design and throughout the wedding events.
The wedding ceremony took place at a local church not far from Spindletop Hall and included a bubble send off for the couple as they exited the church. The way the sunlight hit the bubbles created a prismatic effect and beautiful photos!
Spindletop Hall Wedding Reception
Anne and Francisco took advantage of the stunning vibrant gardens around Spindletop Hall for their wedding photos.
Please note: Garden photos were taken at Ashland Henry Clay Estate.
The bridal party’s attire was a vibrant mix of colorful patterned dresses. These bold choices beautifully contrasted with the Spindletop Hall’s ivory exterior and mahogany interior.
Burning the Bourbon Tradition
Anne and Francisco attempted the “Buring the Boubon” tradition. This is when the bride and groom bury a bottle of bourbon before the wedding and dig it up on the wedding day for good luck. Unfortunately when Anne and Francisco went to dig up their bottle of bourbon it was nowhere to be found! Someone must have seen them bury it, and dug it up after they left. They were absolute troopers about it and everyone got a good laugh out of it. We rushed to the bar and got two glasses of bourbon when it was clear they weren’t finding their bottle. They “Cheers”-ed and laughed and went on with the day.
We decorated different areas of the interior like the fireplace mantels and with bright floral arrangements we also brought in smaller trees and floral arrangements and placed through out the space.
Specialty cocktails were selected to represent the backgrounds of both the bride and groom.
The reception space was a true celebration of love and color. The dining tables were adorned with linens in shades of bright blue and white with fuchsia napkins at each place setting. There were bright, colorful floral centerpieces at each table and vintage colored glassware.
The head table was dressed with tall pink candles, and bright floral centerpieces that went down the center of the table along with two large elevated greenery pieces.
Anne and Francisco ended their Spindletop Hall Wedding day with a private last dance and a glow stick exit!
Thank you to all the vendors for making this wedding such a success!
