Real Weddings: Jess + Hunter Burkey

After a proposal in Centennial Park, Jess and Hunter married in rustic Houston Station.

Houston Station
November 1, 2014

Jess and Hunter met during their freshman year at Centre College, but it wasn’t until they took a ceramics class together two years later that they started dating. Hunter, who is in the Army, proposed to Jess in Centennial Park two weeks before he deployed to Afghanistan.

Jess’ vision for the wedding was warm and inviting, and with its exposed brick, wooden beams, and soft lighting, Houston Station was the perfect venue. The bride wanted to incorporate hints of fall into the November nuptials, which she accomplished with an autumnal color scheme of navy and orange.

Special family moments made Jess and Hunter’s wedding day a memorable occasion: Jess’s sister-in-law read A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton during the ceremony; Hunter wore a tie clasp that belonged to his father; and Jess’s father performed a song he wrote for her on his guitar during the cocktail hour.

“My favorite color is blue and 
my husband’s is orange, which worked out to be the perfect fall color palette for the wedding.”
