“There is something about Kentucky’s southern hospitality, mixed with midwestern charm, that makes it so unique,” said Micaha.
“The Webers, owners of The Barn at Springhouse Gardens, helped us envision our wedding day from start to finish,” said Micaha. “They offered several options for how the ceremony and reception could be set up, so we were able to achieve organic and natural vibes by using the setting and landscape.”
“When planning our wedding, it was important to us that the wedding felt personal, organic and romantic, so we chose The Barn at Springhouse Gardens. The Barn’s ambiance perfectly fit our vision and showcased Kentucky’s charm.”
“The Barn at Springhouse Gardens has a tradition for all their couples of burying a bottle of bourbon to ward off bad weather,” said Austin. “A couple of days before our wedding day, we went to the Barn and buried our bourbon bottle. At the reception, we dug up the bourbon and drank it with all our friends and family.”
Time together was important to Austin and Micaha, so the couple took a few moments before the wedding ceremony to escape to the little cottage at the Barn at Springhouse to sit alone as a couple.
“There were no people, no pictures… just us,” said Micaha. “It was just a moment to be together and soak it all in.”
“Even though my dad couldn’t be there, he still walked me down the aisle,” Micaha said.
Another honorary guest was Austin and Micaha’s daughter, Charlie, who was also their flower girl. While Austin and his mom, Bridgette, danced the traditional mother-son dance to “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw, the song also symbolized the respect that Austin and Micaha have for the way they were raised—to be humble people, to love kindly and to put their family above all else.
“Micaha and Charlie stepped in halfway through the dance, so my girls and I danced to the rest of the song,” Austin said. “Dancing to ‘Humble and Kind’ was a way for us to show our parents how thankful we are that they raised good husbands and wives, and it was a promise to raise our own daughter with the same love and intention they share.”
