Conrad-Caldwell House Wedding Print E-mail


Rev. Dr. Mike Dearing, an Louisville Wedding Officiant, assisted GW of Kentucky and GA from England become husband and wife.  (Names and pictures withheld at request of the couple.) The ceremony took place at the historic Conrad-Caldwell House in Louisvile KY.  The wedding had an international flair.  The couple are from the US and England plus a friend from Denmark joined us via Skype.  The wedding took place on the Grand Staircase.

Conrad-Caldwell House is a great venue for weddings and special events with its multiple rooms and grounds.  It is located on St James Court acroos the street from Central Park in Louisville. It is one of the finest examples of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, was the masterpiece of famed local architect Arthur Loomis of Clarke & Loomis.

Surrounded by a beautiful courtyard neighborhood at the center of the largest collection of Victorian Homes in the US, “Conrad’s Castle” featured all the latest innovations of its day, including interior plumbing and electric lighting. Known for its beautiful woodwork and parquet floors, this massive Bedford limestone home, covered with gargoyles, beautiful archways, and elaborate stone designs, incorporated 7 types of hardwoods and magnificent stained glass windows in the interior design, making it one of the most stunning homes in Old Louisville.

The Museum has been lovingly restored to the Edwardian Age, housing a massive collection of period items including many original pieces, and stands as a testament to the abundant lifestyle of the owners, two of Louisville’s most prominent businessmen and entrepreneurs, Theophile Conrad and William E. Caldwell.

I had so much fun.  Thanks so much for having me officiate for you.

Rev. Dr. Mike Dearing
