Happy Friday!

I don’t even know where to begin to talk about how much we love Angela & Eddie and their Riverwood Mansion wedding! It’s been such a joy to get to know these two, and to see how intentional they are in their lives and with their relationships. They love to adventure together, travel near and far, and are on a mission to visit all the National Parks together (#lifegoals). They planned a stunning and classic wedding at Riverwood Mansion full of personal touches, and were just so excited to have so many of their favorite people from all over under one roof to celebrate. I love how much they were looking forward to the ceremony, and sharing their vows with their best friends by their sides and seeing their reactions. Even though it sounded like a storm might roll through, we lucked out with perfect weather, and their sweet ceremony was followed by the perfect southern cocktail hour under the trees, and then an amazing party of a reception!

On to some of our favorites! Because every once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives a fairy tale.

Congratulations, Angela and Eddie! Cheers to many, many new adventures together. You two are so awesome, and we have loved getting to know you both and document all the joy of this sweet season and celebrations with your friends and family!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Today we are so excited to be sharing some of our favorite images from Katie and Joe’s intimate Nashville wedding last month at St. Augustine’s Chapel on the campus of Vanderbilt University, and their dinner party reception at Park Cafe! Scrolling through these images brings me so much joy–Katie and Joe and their families and friends just radiated joy and emotion throughout the whole day. Their intentional and relaxed approach to life showed so clearly and beautifully in their wedding celebration. It was such a big weekend for them, because not only did they get married, but they also graduated from med school at Vanderbilt, and a few days after the wedding, headed to the west coast to begin their residencies! These two are an incredible support for each other, and the way they laugh together and love together is truly inspiring. Their sweet and emotional ceremony in the beautiful chapel was full of personal touches and words and music from family and friends, and their dinner reception was such a fun time of celebration and emotion-filled toasts and sweet moments!

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!

Congratulations again, Rachel and Will! Your wedding was so sweet and personal with such a great community of people, and we were honored to be there to document all the joy! We are so happy for you both!

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!).

Keep scrolling to see just a few of our favorites from the day!

Congratulations again, Shannon and Brian (and Colby!), and thanks so much for hanging out with us! We absolutely can’t wait to celebrate with you at your wedding and document all the joy and incredible times with your favorite people!
