The Time of My Life | Derby Day Wedding at RT Lodge |

Cinco De Mayo, Maracas, and a Soul Train exit? Yes Please.

Josh and Allison’s Wedding beautiful outdoor wedding was both intimate and larger than life. The ceremony was filled with the closest of friends, family, beautiful blooms, and unique details. Cocktail hour was filled with s’mores and Kentucky Derby viewing, complete with proper wide-brim-hat attire. After the race, dinner was served under a tent topped with maypole ribbons, flowers, and lounge seating, inviting guests to relax and settle into the evening. 

Every couple has a unique style, but our favorite thing about Allison and Josh is how they seemed to light up on the dance floor, surrounding themselves with family and friends and a contagious energy. Allison and her dad did a choreographed dance and Josh and his mom held each other through tears—there may have been a few of those from us as well.

The reception was the definition of a party, with nonstop dancing, maracas and a live band. At the end of the night, everyone lined up and spent the next 20 minutes dancing in groups Soul-Train-style. Once the last dancer got ready to leave the tent, the ominous clouds finally broke and Josh and Allison officially exited under a large umbrella while getting pelted with raindrops. I think the weather wanted in on the fun. It was one crazy fun night!
