The July 2012 wedding of Kentucky native Jourdan Fairchild and her husband, Andrew, is featured in the June issue of Country Living magazine. The fashionable fete was a veritable Who's Who of Central Kentucky businesses and people.
The ceremony was held at Georgetown College, where her father, Bill Crouch, is president. Fairchild, a former crafts editor for Country Living, made many of the whimsical decorations.
The reception was at the Headley-Whitney Museum on Old Frankfort Pike. Vases of locally grown flowers were created by Jeremy Rice of House on Walton Avenue. Announcing the newly wedded couples' entrance was longtime Keeneland bugler Bucky Sallee.
More photos and information, including Fairchild's ideas for a DIY wedding, are in the June issue of Country Living and at Countryliving.com.
