Puppy Love at Cedarwood – Laine & Devin

Even though the bus didn’t show up to pick up Laine and her bridal party to bring them to Cedarwood and they all had to take taxis there, it was still a incredible day. Laine and Devin spent a brief part of their courtship in Nashville while Laine was going to grad school. Devin proposed in Leipers Fork, TN and they decided to have a destination wedding here in Nashville for all of their friends and family in Nebraska to come to. Their wedding took place at the beautiful  Cedarwood. My favorite part of their decor was the way they implemented the love of their two fur babies into the day. Their table numbers were dog silhouettes that coincided with their gold dog figurine escort “cards” that were painted by Laine. They also had a puppy chow bar as their favors. Other noteworthy details were- the pink sequined bridesmaid dresses, the wine box ceremony, the paper goods designed by the bride, and the poem sewn by Laine’s mom into the hem of her dress. Every step of the way I LOVED working with these two. As you can see from their photos there was so much laughing, smiling, and lots and lots of dancing.

Romantic Golf Course Wedding- Faydra & Paul

Faydra and Paul had an absolutely fantastic wedding at Vanderbilt Legends Club this summer. They met through a mutual friend while karaoking at a club that they both frequented. Because of how they met and how the often they frequent the club, they decided to have a karaoke reception and brought the DJ from the club with them from Memphis to Nashville, TN. Faydra had her mother’s wedding dress reworked and wore boots that were a staple in her (Faydra) wardrobe. They just wanted everything to be pretty, relaxed, fun, and them. Paul and his friends are avid break dancers and kept me thoroughly entertained all night. After the first dance there was a first song performed by Faydra and Paul to kick off the karaoke. This couple and this wedding were wonderful and such a pleasure to photograph. Everyone was so kind and laid back that my second shooter Joel Hartz and I kept talking about their wedding and how much fun we had.

Ginger and Daniel’s War Memorial Engagement Session

This is Ginger and Daniel and they are two of the sweetest, goofiest, and most laid back people that you could meet. I photographed their engagement session and wedding this summer and I’m sad that we don’t have anything else on the docket. Guess they are just going to have to have babies real soon so that I can photograph them.:)For their session we wanted to use places that represent them. They love going to concerts so much so that their first date was Bonaroo Music Festival. Daniel even proposed there years later. Because of that we picked the grounds of War Memorial Auditorium. They also love traveling, being outdoors, and just exploring so we decided to round out the session in a more rustic location. Please enjoy!

Heather & Dan’s Classic Scarritt Bennett Wedding

Heather and Dan were married at Scarritt Bennett in May. Their reception followed at the Country Music Hall of Fame. It was a beautifully elegant and classic wedding that centered around the bride and groom and their families. There were lots of happy tears and the bride and groom looked at each other adoringly all day. Heather just radiated happiness and Dan was stunned by Heather. This wedding contained some of my favorite candids this year- the photograph of Heather crying when she showed her dad the veil that her mom painstaking hand beaded, the photograph when the doors opened and the light from the chapel hit Heather’s face and she began to walk down the aisle towards Dan, and the photograph of Heather’s mom crying while watching Heather and her dad dance. Like I said, lots of crying. The night ended with an exit in a horse drawn carriage where we left the guests behind and took night photographs around the city.

Special thanks has to go to the incredible vendors that put this together- Camie Occasions, Enchanted Florist, Country Music Hall of Fame, Scarritt Bennett, Blue Tone Music, Dessert Designs, and Matchless Transportation.
