About Limestone Hall:

Oh, get ready for a blast from the past! Limestone Hall has a storied history, and I'm excited to share it with you. Nestled in downtown Lexington, this architectural gem has been a beloved icon since the early 20th century.

The venue was originally built as the Lexington and Fayette County courthouse in 1898. Designed by the renowned architecture firm Lehman & Schmitt, this Beaux-Arts beauty stands as a testament to the city's rich history and architectural prowess.

But don't worry, you won't walk down the aisle in a courtroom. In 2002, the old courthouse was decommissioned. After years of careful planning and restoration, it was transformed into the wedding venue in 2018. Talk about a glow-up!

The Architecture of Limestone Hall:

As I mentioned earlier, Limestone Hall was designed by the famous architecture firm Lehman & Schmitt in the Beaux-Arts style. This architectural movement was all about grandeur, elegance, and symmetry-an apt fit for a wedding venue, don't you think?

When you first arrive at Limestone Hall, you'll be greeted by an impressive façade featuring beautiful limestone, intricate carvings, and stately columns. It's the kind of entrance that'll make you feel like royalty, and I'll be there to capture your regal arrival on camera.

Step inside, and you'll find yourself in the breathtaking rotunda. This awe-inspiring space boasts a soaring dome, gorgeous stained glass windows, and an elegant marble floor. It's the ideal spot for those jaw-dropping wedding photos that'll have your friends and family ooh-ing and aah-ing for years to come.

But wait, there's more! Limestone Hall also features two fabulous ballrooms—the Lexington Room and the Limestone Room. Each space is adorned with stunning architectural details like ornate plaster moldings, shimmering chandeliers, and beautifully restored woodwork. Whether you're exchanging vows or dancing the night away, these ballrooms provide the most stunning backdrop for your big day.

In a nutshell, this venue is an architectural marvel that combines historic charm and modern sophistication. As your wedding photographer, I can't wait to capture the magic of this exquisite venue. I can turn it into a visual love story for you and your sweetheart. With a setting as enchanting as Limestone Hall, your wedding photos will be extraordinary!
