Guests enjoyed specialty drinks such as Bourbon and Ginger and Peach Sangria, as well as hors d'oeuvres like Pork Tenderloin Crostini, BBQ Shrimp Martini, Baked Brie and Fig on Crostini and Twice Baked Potato Bites to start the evening. The buffet included Roast Chicken, Tenderloin, Salmon and the couple treated guests to a late-night snack of Mini BBQ Chicken, Pepperoni, and Fried Green Tomato Pizzas along with Cheeseburger Sliders.

 

 

The Details

The Keeneland Team worked with Keaton and Stuart Hurt (House by JSD), as well as the bride's aunt who assisted with the planning and detail work for the big day. The décor included beautiful draping throughout the barn area and the addition of a stunning chandelier in the Keeneland Entertainment Center.

Keaton and Andrew incorporated some of their favorite things throughout the event. The bride absolutely loves wildflowers and sunflowers – their unique arrangements added a fun flair of color to the event.

Guests were treated to lovely small shot glasses in burlap bags and a twig of lavender from the Keeneland Shop. The couple's cake toppers were Adirondack chairs, which reminded them of some of their favorite beach memories.

Kubb, the couple's favorite game, as well as cornhole, horse shoes and giant Jenga were spread across the Keene Barn lawn for guests to play as they enjoyed a cocktail.
