Falls City News & Brews | Episode 4: ‘Tis the Seasonal

Seasonals are like opinions: everyone has them. In this episode of Falls City News & Brews, the guys talk about their favorite seasonals (and one a couple of them hate).

Thanks for listening and please drink responsibly.

Falls City’s heritage as one of Louisville’s enduring breweries – we were founded in 1905 – has given way to our vision for the future. Since the brewery was re-imagined in 2010, the focus by our small team has been singular: Simply make great craft beer.

Brittany Wright-Humphrey & Gary Humphrey • 6.17.17

Photography by Ashley Walts

We were introduced by Todd Sharp, who thought we would be the perfect fit. We were engaged three days before Christmas. Gary kept taunting me with the presents under the tree because I kept begging ashleywaltsphotography-5-5
him to just let me open one early. He finally gave in and I had to open a huge box followed by another and so on. I had an idea once the boxes kept getting smaller, and when I finally got down to the last box he was on his knee. Everything after that was kind of a blur! We celebrated by going to watch “The Christmas Carol” at Actors Theatre followed by The Exchange to have drinks with friends

I heard about Laurie Haag of Eventful 203 through a friend of mine and contacted her about helping me plan the wedding. Little did I know that she would be the backbone of the entire thing. I pretty much gave all control to her, which wasn’t hard for me to do since I was never really into the process of planning a wedding. She was so professional and literally helped me the entire step of the way. The wedding would absolutely not have been as magical without her.ashleywaltsphotography30

It was very important to us to keep everything local (and I mean literally everything) and include the city of New Albany. It was also important to us to have a photograph of Gary’s parents on a stand by his side since they are no longer with us.
Our ceremony was awesome. I don’t think it was longer than 15 minutes but it felt like 45. Once I laid eyes on Gary, it was hard for me to hold back my tears, but I was just so, so happy that all I could do was smile. One of the most memorable moments was walking down the aisle and seeing my husband-to-be put his face in his hands to try and stop from crying.


And then, it was time to get the party started. We literally danced the night away. My dad and I had a surprise dance. We started out with our song, “My Girl,” and the broke into songs by Usher, Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars. It was a hit even though Dad forgot half of the moves. Gary and I both did a dollar dance, followed by the garter toss and bouquet toss. I also had all of my dancers and the University of Louisville Ladybirds out on the dance floor. I seriously don’t think we ever stopped dancing. It was truly the most amazing night of my life. It was everything I had ever hoped for and more. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I am so thankful for everyone who helped make that day amazing and to Waffle House for letting me eat cheesy eggs and bacon in my dress at 3:30 a.m.

Christi Lynne Crecelius & Halee Niccole Crecelius 7.7.17

Photography by Katie Babbage 

Chcrec2risti: We initially came to know of one another – embarrassing as it is –on Tinder. I had just moved back home from living out in Sacramento for five years. I transferred army units from Indiana to Vallejo, Ca., so I could travel and experience something different after living in a small town all my life. It was a great experience and it made me grow a lot as a person, but it was time to come home because even the best of experiences don’t have the same appeal when you’re away from your family and loved ones. Being kind of new to my hometown again, I wanted to meet new people mostly for friends but I was open to meeting someone on a romantic level. I came across Halee’s profile and of course swiped right because she was clearly gorgeous. I was lucky
shcrec3e thought my goofy butt was worth a swipe right and we just started talking. Even after just a short time talking with her via Tinder I knew there was something about her. I invited her to my mom’s birthday party The decking to the pool was all lit up really beautifully, and as we walked further back toward this huge willow tree, we saw hundreds of fireflies. We were also accompanied by a beautiful full moon that set the mood that much more. As we came closer and our conversation grew deeper, I was overtaken by her everything.

Halee: Fourteen days after we first met, Christi and I had an amazing night at what we now call our home. We decided itcrec4 was time to get to know one another a little more and to open up a bottle of wine and talk. Well, that one bottle turned into three or four bottles! (LOL) She didn’t have a bottle opener in the house and instead of going to buy one, she decided to tap the neck of the bottle on the porch outside. It was successful because we drank a few bottles. That night was one of the most perfect nights of my life. We talked for hours and shared our deepest, darkest secrets. It was the same night we said, “I love you” to one another. From that night on I knew I was in love with her, and we were inseparable.

Our wedding was planned with a lot of patience and a lot of wine. A lot of the ideas that we come up with for the wedding was from blending great ideas from Pinterest as well as our own ideas and what we envisioned for our special day. We really had a DIY wedding. We had help from friends and family and our day couldn’t have been possible without them.

Photography by Joseph Abell 

We met many years ago when I was in high school and Josh was a retreat leader for the Providence retreat program. We lost touch over the years and met again at a retreat retirement dinner for the long-time program leader. Our first date was the next week and we never looked back.

Our first date was the best one I’ve ever had; I had never felt so comfortable with someone. We spent the whole evening laughing. I remember thinking if it’s always this easy, I could really love this relationship. I hate to be as cliché to say I knew from our first date, but I did. I think at our age and experiences (although he’s a tad older) you know what you want, and when you finally find it, you want to spend as much time as you can with them.

Our engagement day was full of surprises. It was his birthday weekend, and I was throwing a surprise birthday party at our house for him. Unbeknownst to me, he was also planning on our engagement that day. My parents have some property in the knobs with a lake, so he suggested we take our two dogs for a walk in the afternoon and he proposed to me there. We had the birthday dinner and decided to move the party to The Exchange for some after dinner drinks, and he had arranged a few of our friends to surprise me with the engagement. My sister Megan joked that she had too many surprises to keep track of that night and was trying not to accidentally let one slip.

We had a wedding planner in Florida who thankfully did most of the planning for our February wedding. Our travel agent, Lisa with Beach Bum Vacations, was so helpful in planning the logistics. Angie Burke helped us put together our flower arrangements to send to FL, and Johann Pedolzky with Slab made the wooden centerpiece bases. Our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. We spent the week in FL with friends and family, and had a pretty laid back day spent at the beach before the wedding. We couldn’t have had better weather, and spent the evening celebrating with friends and family. Our reception in May at my parent’s house in Floyds Knobs couldn’t have been done without our family.

One of my favorite memories is photo bombing Josh’s groomsmen photos. Our photographer, Joseph Abell, was such a good sport about it. I love scuba diving and love sharks. So, I told Joseph I had two really great ideas: first, I had a shark suit I bought online and wanted to sneak in some pictures; and second, I wanted a giant shark Photoshopped into one of our pictures. He made it happen, and they turned out great. I will never forget Josh’s face! We also got 100 percent biodegradable lanterns that we lit at the end of the night that was an unforgettable view.
