Just the Two of Us
Celebrate your most joyous day with a truly private ceremony. With only you, your fiancé and the officiant in attendance, it makes for the most intimate of all weddings. You can choose to be married in our private garden courtyard, in one of our elegant gathering rooms, or in your private Honeymoon Suite. We will provide a non-denominational officiate, a small wedding cake, a wedding bouquet for the Bride, boutonniere for the Groom, champagne or sparkling cider for your Wedding Toast and at least 10 photographs taken by the innkeeper to preserve the memory. You’ll spend your wedding night at our bed and breakfast in one of our elegant suites and enjoy a full gourmet breakfast the morning after! Ceremonies may last for up to one hour and are held at the time of your choosing.
Our Closest Friends and Family
Enjoy a stress-free, elegant small ceremony at our historic Bed and Breakfast with up to ten guests in attendance. You will have your choice of a beautiful garden setting or inside the Mansion in one of our romantic rooms.
We will provide a non-denominational officiant, the Bride’s and Maid of Honor’s Wedding Bouquet, the Groom’s and Best Man’s Boutonniere, a two-tiered wedding cake, 10 white wedding chairs for your guests, special music, a fruit & cheese display, finger sandwiches, chocolate desserts and champagne wedding punch for you and your guests. This package also includes a photography package taken by a professional photographer (20 edited and finished photos on picture CD and selected by the photographer.) You may also purchase additional photos from the photographer.
You’ll spend your wedding night in one of our elegant suites and enjoy your first breakfast together as a married couple the next morning!
Elegant Champagne Wedding
Imagine your wedding ceremony taking place outside in the garden with the Mansion as the backdrop. Or, perhaps the ceremony is indoors and you descend the elaborate staircase in the foyer. There are many possibilities for how you can celebrate your special day.
After your special ceremony, you mingle with your guests as they sip an elegant champagne punch and snack on hors d’oeuvres. Next, your full receiption begins with a formal sit-down dinner served on fine crystal and china. (Choose from a selection of entrees, vegetables and salads. Drinks include coffee, tea and champagne for toasting. We can also arrange a cocktail food buffet for similar pricing.) All tables, chairs, linens, crystal, china & silver are provided. You’ll have use of the common areas and the gardens of the Mansion. Your wedding ceremony will be performed by a non-denominational officiant and we’ll provide a professional photographer to take those cherished photographs (50 edited and finished photos selected by the photographer. You may also purchase additional photos from the photographer.)
A professional musician will perform during your ceremony and we’ll provide a band or DJ who can play a variety of vocals, classical, popular/modern music for light dancing. Our floral designer will create flowers for the Bride, the Groom, Best Man, Maid of Honor, Flower Girl, Ring Bearer, Parents of Bride & Groom, and fresh flower table arrangements. A 3-tier wedding cake will be created with just you in mind. Plus, the Bride and Groom will be treated to a romantic wedding horse & carriage ride.
A full breakfast will be provided both mornings for overnight guests. A wedding with family and friends staying overnight at the Bed and Breakfast affords a time to relax and reminisce. It also lends itself to the blending of the families into a new one brought together by your vows. This package includes a 1-hour rehearsal the night before the ceremony.
Wedding Licenses in Kentucky
If you are 18 or older, you can apply for a marriage license with the county clerk in any Kentucky county, and you can get married in any county regardless of where you obtained the license. However, the license is only good for 30 days, and if that time period expires, you have to apply for a new license.
You do not need a blood test and there are no waiting periods, but both parties must apply for the license in person. You should both bring identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.) and $50 (check, credit card, money order or cash).
The Louisville Bourbon Inn is located in Jefferson County. The county clerk’s office of Professional License is located at:
Louisville Metro Hall
527 W. Jefferson St.
