8:51 AM The wedding takes place this afternoon at the historic Mt. Horeb Presbyterian Church (third church down in the lefthand column). The historical marker in front of the church reads as follows:

This church was organized April 21, 1827, at nearby “Cabell’s Dale,” home of Mary Cabell Breckinridge, widow of John Breckinridge, U.S. Senator and Attorney General in Thomas Jefferson’s cabinet. The original brick church, constructed in 1828 on this site, burned in 1925. Present building of similar design was dedicated in 1926. Presented by Kentucky Breckinridge Committee.

8:46 AM It’s another hot, muggy day in Lexington. It’s also Nick’s 21st birthday. At the moment, most of the crew is visiting Lane’s End farm. As you approach Lexington, you encounter immaculately kept farms with miles of black wooden fences. These farms are unlike the farms you see elsewhere because they breed and train the finest racehorses in the world.

Do you have any thoughts or questions about this post?
