"And they're off!"

Written by Lauren Quick and Kaitlin Marshall

With the Keeneland Spring meet running April 6th through the 27th, it is that time of year again for horse racing here in Lexington, KY. Not only is it a great way to spend a beautiful spring day outside, but it’s an even better place to celebrate a marriage with great friends and family! You will be completely swept off your feet by such an elegant wedding taking place within Keeneland’s gorgeous grounds. Keeneland’s picturesque paddock scenery is an inspiration for many wedding invitation suites that we have created. There are a number of brides who have had just their wedding reception at Keeneland or both their ceremony and reception. The invitations are always fun with a vintage romance appeal, and sometimes even a slight touch of their Kentucky horse pride. Check out some of our Keeneland Wedding Invitations suites from our brides in the past.


Planning a Keeneland ceremony or reception and looking for inspiration? Follow us at Cardinal and Straw on Pinterest http://pinterest.com/ecmistretta/wedding-inspiration/ ! We have put together several inspiration boards for current and past brides! This specific one was for our bride, Missy! See what Emily had to say about her board below. . .

Missy’s Keeneland Wedding Inspiration Board

“Missy’s Keeneland wedding was nothing short of Bluegrass chic! We embellished the wedding stationery with the groom’s last initial in a shade of dark dark grey, looped together with beautiful blush pink scroll work…Missy chose Stardream Quartz stock and thermography printing for all of her wedding collateral which brought in the final touch of pale silver from her color palette (plus a little shine that totally suited her sparkly personality!) And as if the invitations weren’t beautiful enough we created matching fold out fan programs for her outdoor dream wedding! So much thanks to Angela Anderson Photography for the beautiful images from the wedding day and bridal session.”
