Harpeth River Engagement

Get ready for a super sized post for this beautiful Friday, because this Tennessee adventure session had a little bit of everything we love the most for engagement sessions! A couple who adores each other, gorgeous light, a little bit of adventure, and a little bit of life at home (complete with four-legged friends!). We had such an amazing time with Kate & Mike last weekend! These two are so sweet together, and I love how they truly just enjoy being together. We started off with a little bit of a hike and hanging out by the Harpeth River, site of one of their early dates, before heading to their cabin, where we also got to meet their cats and dogs!

On to a few of our favorites from our adventures with Kate & Mike!

Happy Monday, everyone!

How about a little wedding day joy to brighten up a dreary Monday? We are so excited to share more of our favorites from Ally and Alex’s CJ’s off the Square wedding today on the blog! Ally and Alex first met through Ally’s brother, then became friends, then fell in love. They share a mutual love for the outdoors and adventure, and are just so incredibly sweet together! We’ve so enjoyed getting to know them throughout the wedding planning process, and the way Alex looks at Ally and cares for her is just beautiful. And Ally’s excitement on the wedding day was contagious! I loved that as soon as she arrived at CJ’s, she couldn’t wait to get in her dress and see Alex! An incredibly sweet ceremony was made even more special by the rain falling outside, and was followed by an amazing reception!
Before we move on to some of our favorite images, I wanted to share some of the words that Ally’s brother and sister in law shared with the newlyweds during their toast (might be slightly paraphrased, but as close as I can remember it–the sentiment was perfect!): As you head out on your adventures in this world, don’t forget that home is in the person you love standing by your side.

Franklin, TN wedding

Happy wedding season, everyone!

I’m so excited to be sharing our first wedding of the year today, Sam and Adam’s destination wedding at CJ’s off the Square in Franklin, TN! We have so many completely amazing couples we are working with this year–looking at our calendar just gives me an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. And Sam and Adam are certainly no exception! We got to know these two during their PNW adventure engagement session last summer, and they are just two of the sweetest, most whole hearted people I know. The way they love each other and the way they love the people around them is so beautiful. I loved that besides the obvious of getting to marry each other, the thing they were both looking forward to most about their wedding day was celebrating with the people closest to them. And boy did they celebrate!! From start to finish the day was full of fun and emotion–from tears to belly laughs to an epic dance party, it was all amazing!
