Anne & Jack’s Cheekwood Wedding

Hey there friends! Please excuse our absence lately– we’re anxiously awaiting Baby Walker #2’s arrival any day now so we’re prepping around here…which also means making sure we’ve got our business in order for our little maternity break we’ll be taking in April.

Can’t believe we haven’t shared this GORGEOUS wedding yet. Oh my goodness. We consider it a great honor that we were able to be a part of Anne & Jack’s beautiful wedding. It was so nice getting to know them and their sweet families. They felt like old friends and we just loved capturing all the excitement surrounding their wedding – from Anne’s bridal portraits to their rehearsal dinner and finally the big wedding day. Anne was a bridesmaid in Katie & Chris’ wedding so that’s how we met her! And we’ll get to see them again this year when we shoot her cousin’s wedding! We love getting to see our couples again and again 🙂

Anne & Jack’s ceremony was at the gorgeous Christ Church Cathedral and their reception (and total dance party!) was at Cheekwood. Their wedding planner, Libby Page, did an amazing job coordinating such a big day for this special couple. We started out with their first look at Cheekwood and then headed to Christ Church for more pictures.

A note about Anne’s incredible veil– she was the 46th bride in her family to wear it! Yes, you read that right. 46th! It was purchased in 1900– talk about a family heirloom!

Thank you to these incredible vendors for making Anne & Jack’s wedding day so special:

Kelsey & Frank’s Nashville Wedding | Hermitage Hotel Wedding

Hi there friends! You are going to love this beautiful Nashville wedding! We knew the first time we met with Kelsey & Frank, that we were a perfect fit 🙂 We had so much fun with them and their wedding day was absolutely stunning. From their ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral to the reception at The Hermitage Hotel— we loved every second of their day. It was a day full of happiness and celebration. We just loved all the classic, gorgeous details. Kelsey & Frank’s wedding day was in good hands with Mary Alice Sublett from A Delightful Day. She made sure everything went perfectly and we loved working with her team. And check out the gorgeous ballroom at Hermitage Hotel! Hillary with Brocade Designs made sure all the flowers were perfect! Band 24/7 has played at quite a few of the weddings we’ve done in the past few years, and they never disappoint.

Erin & Patrick’s Wedding | St. Henry Church + Hillwood Country Club

Happy Friday friends! It’s time to relive Erin & Patrick’s gorgeous, fun wedding today 🙂 What a day this was! We have to give Erin an award for the most excited, jump up and down with joy, giddiest bride ever. 😉 Watching she and Patrick during their first look was absolutely adorable. Erin couldn’t contain her excitement for the day and it made for some amazing pictures. A note to our couples- be yourselves during your first look– don’t hold back your emotions! You’ll love the pictures more if you just try to be in the moment with each other. We had an absolute blast with this couple and their incredible family and friends. They met at the University of Tennessee like Dusty and I did so we clicked immediately. Their day was beautiful (and quite hot outside) but was one big celebration…which you all know we LOVE. 🙂

Their beautiful ceremony was at St. Henry Church with the reception at Hillwood Country Club. They were surrounded by many family and friends and made sure to enjoy every part of the day. We were honored to be a part of it!

We loved sharing in all the special moments from this wedding and are so excited to share some of our favorite pictures from Erin & Patrick’s wedding day. A huge thank you to these wonderful vendors who made everything perfect:

Claire & Clint’s Loveless Barn Wedding

We’re kicking off a series of blogging to catch you guys up on tons of work from last year! We’ll start with Claire & Clint’s beautiful wedding at The Loveless Barn. Claire & Clint were so sweet and totally laid back. We loved being a part of their day and getting to know them. Their ceremony was outside on the patio area of the Loveless Barn and the reception was inside. We’ve done a few weddings there but this was the first time for us to shoot both the ceremony and reception there. It was so nice to have everything in one place 🙂 It was a beautiful day with the sun setting behind them during their ceremony. Such a simple, sweet wedding focused on their love and enjoying time with all their family and friends.

Check out some of our favorite images & a special thanks to the fabulous vendors who made this wedding perfect:

Megan & Tommy’s Franklin, TN Wedding | St. Paul’s Episcopal & McConnell House

Happy Tuesday everyone! We’ve been slacking on our blogging lately- sorry! It’s been a very busy summer and we have tons of great stuff to share with you 🙂 First up- Megan & Tommy’s wedding! We really enjoyed getting to know this adorable couple – starting with our first meeting with them at Taco Mamacita and then their beautiful wedding day. Their Franklin wedding was full of gorgeous, simple details that we loved. It was clear they spent most of their energy during wedding planning making sure they had a meaningful ceremony and that their guests enjoyed a FUN reception– Jeni’s Ice Cream Truck for the win! 🙂 As you’ll see, these two are super cute and so in love (with quite a height difference we might add ;). They were troopers when it down poured right when we were supposed to start their first look – but the pictures turned out perfect on the front porch of The McConnell House in Franklin. Their ceremony was at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Franklin- it’s the most adorable little church and happens to be the oldest Episcopal Church in Tennessee (started in 1831!). Our favorite part of the day was after the ceremony, driving around with Megan & Tommy and hopping out around Franklin to take pictures. We made sure they had cold champagne to celebrate with and a fun time for pictures. Afterwards, adorable Megan asked if we could all ‘be friends in real life?!’ Yes, please! We love our couples…seriously 🙂 A huge shout out to Christina Logan Design– we really enjoyed working with Christina who made sure the day was beautiful and ran smoothly!

Julie & Vincent’s Nashville War Memorial Auditorium Wedding

Happy Friday friends! 🙂 Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. We went camping with our family and had such a great time. Davis was a trooper 🙂

We’ve got a big wedding this weekend and can’t wait to celebrate with Abi & Omar – stay tuned for sneak peeks of that one and follow us on Instagram for a few updates throughout the day!

 

We’re excited to share pictures from Julie & Vincent’s wedding today. Their ceremony and reception were at War Memorial Auditorium in downtown Nashville. SUCH a beautiful place for a wedding. It was our first time shooting here and we can’t wait to get back 🙂 The ceremony in front of War Memorial was gorgeous and made for some amazing pictures! We were so excited to do Julie & Vincent’s first look here- we had scoped out a place a few days before and it was gorgeous with amazing light. The ceremony took place right in front of the steps leading up to War Memorial Auditorium and the reception was inside with cocktail hour in the courtyard area. Jennifer Hamilton Events and her awesome team were amazing to work with and did such a great job planning and making sure the day was perfect. Amanda Jerkins Design handled all the gorgeous florals- we loved all the little bud vases and the colors were beautiful. Amy Lynn Larwig and her team made sure Julie & all the girls had beautiful hair and makeup!

We’ve had such a great time getting to know Julie & Vincent over the past year. They are hilarious and so much fun. You might remember them from their fun engagement session. We took all kinds of fun ‘Nashville’ pictures on the Pedestrian Bridge and at Jackalope Brewing Company! We knew immediately when we met them that we would all get along great. It was awesome to see how involved Vincent was in the wedding planning process – seriously, he put other grooms to shame, right Julie? 😉 We can’t wait for their gorgeous wedding album to come in. We’ll make sure to post pictures of that too! Thank you Julie & Vincent SO much for allowing us to be a part of your big day. We had a blast! On to the good stuff…

We’re back!!

Hey friends!

WOW. What a trip. There really aren’t words to describe what we just experienced. Do you know how beautiful our country is??!?! California is just unbelievably beautiful in SO many ways. We had such a great trip and we’re quite sad that it’s over but also quite happy to be back home with our sweet boy (we missed him like crazy being gone 10 days!!!). Just wanted to give you a little peek at a few of our pictures. Our cameras nearly exploded from all the pictures we took 😉 We can’t wait to get these printed and have them all over our house! Thank you to our clients for being patient with us while we enjoyed a little break!

It’s been nice having a few months of a little ‘down time’ with a few sessions here and there….mostly maternity & newborns – which has been so fun(!)…but wedding season is upon us. In 3 weeks we’ll shoot our first wedding of the year! We’re very excited for all that we have booked this year. Once the craziness begins… we don’t slow down until November. Should be tons of fun so stayed tuned for a lot more on the blog!

We’ll do a full recap of our trip soon. I’ve had many people ask where we went, what we felt we did right, what we would have changed, must see places, etc. I think we’ll do a full breakdown of that soon! In the mean time…

Friday Favorite | Laura & Beau’s McConnell House Wedding

Happy Friday friends! We’re headed to Memphis this weekend for Rachael & David’s wedding! We can’t wait 🙂 Stay tuned for pictures from that. It’s been a busy few months around here and we’re just coming up for air. Can’t wait to share everything we’ve been up to – including today’s gorgeous wedding 🙂 We had such a great time getting to know Laura & Beau and loved this laid back couple. Their wedding was so beautiful and simple. I just loved the little chapel where they were married. Kings Chapel is in Arrington, TN and we just loved shooting here. Their reception was at the McConnell House in downtown Franklin. This place is amazing. Such a great, unique spot for a reception and the food was absolutely incredible. 🙂 Laura & Beau had a wonderful DJ who did a great job getting everyone on the dance floor. We loved working with Josh from High Tone Entertainment!

Abi & Omar’s Nashville engagement session

Hey there! We had such a great time with Abi & Omar when we met up in 12th South for their engagement session. It was the perfect location – as Abi & Omar live close to the area and spend a lot of their time here. We love this area of Nashville and it was actually the first time we’ve ever done pictures here. We’ll definitely be using the 12 South area more often for pictures!

Abi and I were in the same sorority at UT (a long time ago ;)) so it was great to see her again! She and Omar are totally adorable and so much fun! After their engagement session we grabbed a couple of drinks together and got to know them better. Their wedding is going to be FUN. 🙂 Thank you guys so much for hanging out with us! We can’t wait for the big day!

Ruby Weddings | Julia & Micah’s Nashville Wedding

Hi everyone! We’re excited to share with you more pictures from Julia & Micah’s gorgeous wedding at Ruby in Nashville. This was such a fun wedding for us. Julia & Micah are such sweet people and we really enjoyed getting to know them. Their wedding was on a Monday which was a nice change of pace for us! They decided to do a first look and had this to say about the experience:

Julia’s thoughts:

“My nerves went out the window after I saw Micah for our first look. It was such a beautiful moment and it was probably the only time we had together without a billion people around! The pictures being done before the ceremony was also my favorite part. We got to enjoy it all and take it all in without being stressed about timelines. From someone who was a little weary about the first look, I would highly suggest it now to any couple!”

Micah’s thoughts:

“Once the ceremony started the night went pretty fast like everyone said it would. The first look gave me a chance to be present and take the time with my bride to realize what day it was.
After that moment , it seemed like time slowed down and I was able to enjoy the day with Julia. Rather than just being anxious until she walked down the aisle.”

Needless to say, they are so happy the decided to do the first look. I have to say- Micah had one of the best reactions we’ve ever seen at seeing his beautiful bride for the first time. It was a very emotional and exciting moment for them and he just kept yelling ‘wooo!’ as he looked at his beautiful bride. 🙂 I loved it. Seeing each other before the ceremony really didn’t take away from the moment she walked down the aisle- as you’ll see by the look on Micah’s face!

We had such a great time with these two. They are the kind of people you just immediately want to be friends with and their love for each other is so very obvious. I love how humble they are too. They’re both in the music industry and very talented people! Julia even recorded her singing Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ and had it playing as a surprise to him as she walked down the aisle. The look on his face was amazing as he realized it was her singing as she came down the aisle. Talk about tear jerker!
