Hello, everyone!

We hope you all are enjoying this lovely spring! Today we are throwing it back to recap a lovely intimate winter wedding at The Red House in Franklin! Andrew & Hirono were married in a sweet ceremony just a few days after Christmas. They originally met in TN when Hirono was studying abroad, but now both live in Japan. They were coming back to TN for Christmas, and decided to get married while they were here! Andrew’s mom helped pull together such a beautiful and meaningful celebration for them, full of warm hospitality, incredible Nashville food, and the perfect personal touches. Their laid back reception included one of my very favorite things that you find around Nashville: a writer’s round with Grammy award winner Ed Hill & friends (if you’ve never been to one, during writer’s rounds, a group of songwriters get together and alternate singing songs that they wrote–often times that were recorded and made famous by popular artists–and telling the stories behind the songs that you know so well. It’s the best!). We got to meet Andrew and Hirono the day of the wedding, and I was immediately struck by just how sweet and joyful they are together. They were so happy to be celebrating with the people they loved most–both those who were there in person and those who were there in spirit.

On to some of our favorites from the day!

Congratulations again, Andrew & Hirono! We so loved celebrating with you all, and hope you have been loving settling in to married life!

Thanks to all the vendors who helped it be such an amazing day, including: Planning/Venue: Our Red House | Dress Shop: Fabulous Frocks | Flowers: Rebel Hill Florist | Tuxes: Street Tuxedo | Cake: Dulce Desserts | Video: Justin+Hannah | Catering: Edley’s BBQ & South Fork | Music: Ed Hill & Friends

Thank you all for stopping by the blog, and I hope you’re having a great week! If you’re planning an intimate wedding or elopement and are looking for a laid back photography experience to document every sweet moment, we’d love to talk more with you!

Have a great week, friends!

We can’t believe the year is already coming to a close! Today we’re excited to share more photos from Meredith & Mike’s wedding in Lexington, KY back in November. From our very first conversation with these two, it was so clear how important their friends and family are to them, and how incredibly excited they were to celebrate with everyone! They love each other and their people so well, and it was so fun to document everyone enjoying this day with them. The day was rainy and chilly outside, but that made it all the more warm and cozy inside with everyone, and certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! There were so many sweet and emotional moments all day (especially the ceremony!), and it was all followed up with a pretty epic dance party!

Keep scrolling to see more of our favorite moments and images from the day!

Congratulations, Meredith & Mike! We’re so happy for you both as you start out on this new adventure, and so glad we got to be there to document your celebrations with all your favorite people!

Big thanks to everyone who helped make it such a beautiful day, including: Venue: The Grand Reserve-Distillery Square | Planning/flowers/decor: Natural Endeavors | Catering: Bluegrass Catering | Music: Johnnie Johnson | Bride’s Dress: Wedding Wonderland | Tuxes: Geno’s Formal Affair | Pies: Missy’s Pies | Cake: by the bride’s grandmother

Thank you all for stopping by the blog! We wish you all much joy and peace during this holiday season, and lots of adventures with the people you love most in the new year! And if the new year brings you to planning a wedding, and you’re looking for photos that look like you (and not you in some awkward, cheesy pose!), we’d love to chat more with you!

Happy Holidays!
