Hello, everyone!

Coming together with your very favorite people to celebrate the start of your marriage, and honoring your family and friends–it’s what the most beautiful and meaningful wedding days are made of! Rachel and Will’s rainy day wedding at Historic Rock Castle was the epitome of meaningful wedding celebrations. These two are so joyful and fun together. They love to laugh and spend time together, and they love their families and friends. We got a glimpse into their amazing spirits with their adventure engagement session back in the fall, and it was so fun to see them with their people on their wedding day! A little rain wasn’t going to dampen the festivities! Talking to Rachel a little before the wedding, I was just struck by her joy, and how excited she was to marry Will, but also to have that day with their families. Rachel, an agriculture pro, pulled together all the incredible flowers (those proteas!!!!). The reception was a family affair, with family members contributing their signature desserts, a cake made by a family friend, and heirloom flower vases. And while the rain may have come early in the day, they were rewarded with the most stunning sunset over the lake as the evening came to a close!

We recently met up with Shannon and Brian for their Nashville engagement session, and had the best time hanging out with these two (pretty sure all sessions should start with a chill session and happy hour 😉 )! Shannon and Brian are high school sweethearts, and oh my goodness–they sure are sweet together! They have such an easy going relationship, and love to have fun with each other and their friends (and their wedding is going to be such an AMAZING party of a celebration with everyone!!). They are also head over heels for their cat, Colby, who is also pretty awesome! We took a stroll through 12 South, one of their favorite neighborhoods, and had the most beautiful afternoon, then we headed to their home in Brentwood to get some photos of them snuggling up with Colby (who totally stole the spotlight!).

Hello, everyone!

Is there anything better than the arrival of spring after a crazy winter? We are so excited to share some of our favorites from Ellen & Scott’s classic and elegant spring wedding at Scarritt Bennett and Houston Station with you today! Ellen and Scott are such a sweet couple, and they planned an incredible celebration to bring together all their favorite people in one place. After all the planning, they were so clearly overjoyed to be spending the day together. I absolutely love how the joy just shone on their faces all day, and how they couldn’t keep their eyes off each other! Plus, their sweet, much loved fur-baby got to make an appearance for photos and to welcome their guests to the ceremony. Their families mean so much to them, and seeing everyone come together was truly beautiful. Ellen wore her grandmothers’ rings, to keep them close by her in spirit on such a special day.

After their emotional ceremony at Scarritt Bennett, everyone headed over to Houston Station to celebrate and party together! It was such a fun night, made even more fun by an appearance by Scott’s band, who played a few songs for the crowd (so. good!!).

On to some of our favorite images from the day!!

Congratulations again, Ellen and Scott! You two are amazing, and we are so excited for you both! It was such a joy to document your celebrations!
