Find the perfect spot for the perfect wedding
the bride BY LISA KINDEL
ummer is wedding season in the bluegrass. The commonwealth offers many beautiful churches, parks, and venues for your special day. But where do you start to look before you take the big leap? If you want to show off Lexington’s beautiful pastoral countryside and historic charm to your guests, there’s no shortage of options. Lexington wedding planner Deanna Jones Dillenger offers brides a few pointers when looking for the venue: “Most importantly is you want your venue to fit the number of guests that you plan to have, and it needs to be in your budget.” Other things to notice when researching and planning, Dillenger comments “Is the parking lot lit and adequate? Can guests find it easily with GPS?” THE APIARY 218 JEFFERSON ST, LEXINGTON On Jefferson Street, just off of downtown Lexington, there’s a buzz at The Apiary where weddings and events happen weekly inside and out, along with other lifestyle events. The original site burned down in 2008 and in 2011 Chef Owner Cooper Vaughn created an event space with garden design guru Jon Carloftis, EOP Architects, and Matthew Carter Designs that encompasses Kentucky Proud — from the Hamburg Place farm pavers that they used for the flooring to the locally sourced award-winning dishes. Vaughn himself trained at Le Cordon Bleu, earned a degree in hotel restaurant management from Transylvania University and worked at world-renowned Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tenn. The space itself measures over 15,000 square feet with 8,000 square feet to accommodate up to 250 seated. THE BARR HOUSE 1200 CYPRESS ST, PARIS, 859-475-0212 In Bourbon County sits the historic Barr House. Built in 1812 as a private residence for William Penn’s grandson, William Penn III, today the historic home and grounds can be rented for weddings, parties, luncheons, and other special events. Owner Robert Barr restored the property in

Saxony Farm’s Rosie Hundley said they only schedule one wedding a weekend to allow the party plenty of time to set up and clean up without undo stress. PHOTOS BY CHRISTINA LYNCH, ROSIE HUNDLEY honor of his late mother, Carolyn Barr. She opened the home to the public in the ‘60s, and her recipes are still on the menu for many of the special events hosted there. Robert took over the inn in 2011 after she
passed. He renovated the Inn in 2012 and added the cottage next door to accommodate full guest weekends. “People want to stay in one place for the weekend and that’s important to them” he said. He finds
the heart of the house in the history of the home, as well as his mother’s gift of hospitality instilled in Barr from a young age.

YUKO-EN ON THE ELKHORN 800 CINCINNATI ROAD, GEORGETOWN For an outdoor wedding with a Japanese setting, the Yuko-En on the Elkhorn Japan Friendship Garden adjacent to the Cardome Center provides a tranquil space in a natural setting complete with bridge, waterfalls, a koi pond, plus tea house and Villa for rental. JORDAN HILL FARM 722 WALKER PARKE RD, RICHMOND In the Appalachian foothills of Madison County sits Jordan Hill Farm. Once a private home, owner Joyce Green said “we did not need to keep this beautiful place all to ourselves. We wanted to share with others so they could also enjoy the countryside of Kentucky.” The venue includes both indoor and outdoor space to accommodate up to 48 inside to 80 outside with up to 12 guests to stay overnight during festivities. At the helm of JHF kitchen is French-educated Tim Engle who specializes in fresh bluegrass cuisine. One unique aspect of Jordan Hill Farm is the terrain on the 85 acre property - meadows lead to ponds, creeks and forests. Green enjoys having weddings on Jordan Hill Farm as “each wedding brings so many special memories. Making dreams reality and preparing for that special day with each bride and groom is a special experience that makes each a cherished part of Jordan Hill Farm.” THE POLO BARN AT SAXONY FARM 469 BROWNS MILL ROAD Nestled among the horse farms of Scott County sits the Polo Barn at Saxony Farm. Rosie and Broussard Hundley created an events venue on their working horse farm with something for everyone—including a man cave! Weddings take place at the large and small Polo Barns, cottage for set up, not to mention outdoor spaces that can be tented. Rosie Hundley comments “we just host one wedding per weekend, so the couple has from Thursday lunch time to setup through to Monday. That way they are not rushed, and can really enjoy their whole wedding weekend to the utmost. From set-up to rehearsal dinner and getting ready and partying the night away even to a Sunday brunch with family and friends.” Lastly, when you find that perfect venue for your wedding, Deanna Jones Dillinger says: “Read the contract fully. If you have been promised something that is not spelled out in the contract, you should write it in and have the venue initial it. To cover yourself, get it in writing before putting your deposit down and signing the contract.
The wonderful scenery at historic Barr House in Paris will delight any bride this season. Owner Robert Barr honors his mother’s dedication to hospitality by still using some of her recipes on the menu. The nine acres of beautifully landscaped grounds include a swimming pool and garden area which make for the perfect backdrop for an elegant wedding or other special event. PHOTO BY LISA R. KINDEL

Lexington theater group tackle The Bard and classic musical at Woodland Park
SummerFest comes home
BY KIM THOMAS
The Lexington Shakespeare Festival began over 30 years ago as Shakespeare in the Park at Woodland Park. In 2007, under a new board of directors and staff, SummerFest was born — one of the region’s oldest continually operating summer theatre experiences, relocating first to the Arboretum, and later to Moondance, in Beaumont, where there was a permanent stage in place. For the last 10 years, I have tried to coax pals into seeing a SummerFest play at the Arboretum or Moondance Amphitheatre, and most of the creative regrets usually end with, ‘haven’t wanted to go since they moved it from Woodland Park!’” This summer, it’s time for a homecoming. Let the casts of As You Like It and Jesus Christ Superstar do all the work, while you find ample street parking, bring a blanket, basket of noshes, and a box of wine, and voila — you’ve got it made, literally, in the shade. Sit under the tall trees at Lexington’s favorite city park, Woodland Park, located where Clay meets Woodland meets High Street, nestled ‘tween all the busy and cool parts of campus and downtown. As You Like It is the show that opened the original Shakespeare in the Park series. According to Kentucky Conservatory Theatre Executive Director Wes Nelson (who will be directing Jesus Christ Superstar, along with choreographer Jenny Fitzpatrick and musical director Jessica Slaton Greene), the shows will again alternate weekly performances, giving each cast (and perhaps some of the crew) a week of ‘rest’ to refresh for a new performance later in the month. So if you miss one show, no worries, there’s another one just around the calendar corner. Nelson says, “As we continue to find new ways to engage our audiences and challenge local artists, we are also thrilled to celebrate the rich history of outdoor theatre in Lexington. Keeping that in mind, we welcome the return of two important shows from our shared past with the Lexington Shakespeare Festival, and in July, we look forward to welcoming those who’ve longed for the return ‘home’ for so long.” In the past, SummerFest has presented Shakespeare and musicals (like Rent, Little Shop of Horrors, etc). Superstar Stage Manager Natalie Cummins is happy to see the show back in its old neighborhood. “My first experience with the old Lexington Shakespeare Festival was in 2004, and by then the shows were staged in the Arboretum. I’d always wished that I could have worked at Woodland Park, so on a personal level I’m thrilled that SummerFest is returning to the old roots. I also believe that the atmosphere of that area really lends itself to outdoor theater, and I think the community is very happy with the return.”

Nick Abedi, MD, is the first doctor in Kentucky to perform this procedure, which took place at Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington. “This device shows proven outcomes for the treatment of iliac artery aneurysms,” said Dr. Abedi. “This is a new resource that we are now able to use to help a wider range of patients, and I’m thrilled to be the first doctor in Kentucky to treat patients with this minimally invasive
device.” The device can better allow branch arteries to stay open, instead of being blocked, to keep blood flow moving to the pelvic area. Previous stents would simply block off all branch arteries, potentially causing the patient future circulation problems. In addition, being able to provide this as a minimally invasive procedure may allow quicker healing times. Bruce Tassin, president, Saint Joseph Hospital, says, “We are dedicated to providing patients with the best care, and Dr. Abedi and his team are delivering.” Medicare now allows for an aneurysm screening for many patients, which includes a physical exam and ultrasound of the abdomen, as well as a screening of family history. Aneurysms are often called a silent killer because, in most cases of ruptured aneurysm, there are no warning symptoms and most people don’t know they have one until it’s too late. Those of Medicare age, or with a known family history of vascular disorders, may want to ask their doctor if an aneurysm screening is appropriate.

Markey achievements featured in “State of the Cancer Center” address
Dr. Mark Evers, director of the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center, gave his annual “State of the Cancer Center” address at Markey Research Day, highlighting the center’s major accomplishments in patient care, recruitment, research and outreach from the past year. “Markey is making great strides in both clinical care and research, and we plan to continue that trend moving forward,” Evers said. “Kentucky is still home to the worst cancer rates in the country, and we will continue to expand our reach and provide acute-level cancer care for not just Kentuckians, but patients from neighboring states and even across the country who are seeking services only we can provide.” Patient Care at Markey Patient growth continued to increase in the past Dr. Mark Evers year, with more than 94,000 outpatient visits, a four percent increase over 2015 visits and a 42 percent increase since Evers’ arrival in 2009. In addition, the number of analytic cancer cases seen by Markey doctors has nearly doubled – 49 percent – since 2009. Markey’s five-year survival rates for lung, brain, prostate, liver and ovarian cancers are higher than the SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results) Program national average. In particular, Markey’s liver cancer survival rates are outstanding, with a 27 percent five-year-survival rate versus the SEER Program national average of 16 percent.

Silversneakers focus on fitness, felllowship The SilverSneakers members at the North Lexington Family YMCA were all smiles as they recently enjoyed each other’s company and a healthy lunch during a group picnic. A chilly temperature and cloudy skies moved the event from the pavilion to the multi-purpose room, but that didn’t stop the group from interacting socially outside of classes – something lead volunteer Pat Shifflett said they are trying to do more often. “We like to do things periodically because it helps us feel more of a unit fellowship,” Shifflett said. “Many times I feel that people come because they know people care about them … and the goal I think is to not only be healthy physically, but healthy mentally and socially as well.” SilverSneakers is a nationwide program provided by the YMCA with fitness classes for senior citizens. Exercises include yoga, cardio workouts and resistance training all catered to Y members 55 and above. Shifflett said the program is particularly beneficial for seniors who are widowed because it gives them an outlet for emotional support while socializing and staying healthy with people their age.

BGTdeTours: Lincoln’s Lexington Walking Tour, 5:30 pm, Mary Todd Lincoln House. “Lexington played a unique role in the life of Abraham Lincoln. Mary Todd grew up here, so her husband had family ties to the city. Lexington was also home to his political hero, Henry Clay, and Transylvania University was the alma mater of President Lincoln’s Civil War counterpart Jefferson Davis. Lincoln visited Lexington on several occasions before 1860. Walking through the town, he could see fine homes, businesses, schools, and churches. He also witnessed slavery–in the Todd home and the market on the courthouse square–and may have met free persons of color. This walk explores the multifaceted Lexington that shaped Mary Todd’s childhood and exposed her husband to southern life.” Legends vs. Greensboro, 12 pm, Legends ballpark (through Saturday).
