Rachel and Bobby’s wedding was recently published in Nashville Lifestyles magazine but it’s so gorgeous I had to get it up on my blog as well!  The festivities started at Cheekwood for Rachel and her bridesmaids with a really fun and elegant bridal dinner.  The Wisteria Arbor at Cheekwood was absolutely the perfect backdrop for the night.

Clementine Hall is one of Nashville’s newest and most sought after venues for weddings.  This was my second time getting to shoot there.  The day started off perfectly with fabulous weather for Rachel and Bobby’s first look that we did at the park right across the street.  I love that Rachel and Bobby chose to have an intimate wedding ceremony in the backroom at Clementine Hall.  Surrounded by their closest family and friends they said their vows.  The florals and harp provided the perfect ambiance for the ceremony.

After the ceremony we went into the main hall that Amos Events had decorated with cozy couches and the perfect lighting for the atmosphere.  Additional guests arrived and greeted the couple while taking in the beautiful space.  After dinner the Downtown Band really got things kicked off and once they started playing the dance floor was full for the rest of the night.  A fun surprise during the reception were the elaborate, custom balloon hats and glow toys.  They were such a hit with the guests and really kicked things up a notch.  I don’t think anyone wanted to leave at the end of the night!  Congrats Rachel and Bobby your wedding day was truly one to remember!

Two pieces came together to make this one of my favorite weddings of the year (and maybe all time!). First Samantha and Kaleb are just awesome people. I had so much fun spending their wedding day with the two of them and their friends and family. Kaleb is a big fan of whiskey and we shared some great whiskeys while he was getting ready and at the reception. Samantha is a gorgeous, fun bride with a great sense of style. From the first moment I met them we totally clicked and it felt like I was hanging out with old friends. Second all of the vendors came together to go above and beyond and make this an absolutely flawless day. These two things together make my job so easy and creates an environment where I can be creative and really enjoy the day. I was so nervous before this wedding because the forecast was calling for rain and lots of it. I was so hoping that we would be able to have their wedding outside… especially after I pulled up and saw Heather outside in the rain putting together the florals. It looked like we would have to the ceremony in the bar (which is still really awesome) but there was a break in the rain and the clouds parted.

Some of my favorite parts from Samantha and Kaleb’s wedding day were the gorgeous photos that we got after their ceremony (gosh that circle floral arch is beyond gorgeous) around the farm. French Fry bar!!! I’ve been a big advocate of late night reception snacks and their french fry bar was a big hit! And all of the perfect details (that invitation suite tho!). But one of my favorite memories has to be the firework and sparkler send off. Dan and Stephanie (the awesome owners of Allenbrooke) coordinated with me beforehand where the fireworks were going to be. I had an idea in my head what it would look like and the photos exceeded my wildest expectations. Congrats Sam and Kaleb! Thanks so much for sharing your wedding day with me!!!

A few months back Dan contacted me about wanting to propose to his then girlfriend Nicolette on a surprise trip that he had planned to Nashville.  When he took Nicolette to the airport the day of the proposal she didn’t even know that they were going to Nashville, much less that later that day she would be engaged!  Dan and I worked out a plan to get Nicolette up to the observation deck of the (John Seigenthaler) Pedestrian Bridge.  I posed as a friendly passerby-er who offered to take a photo of the two of them with Dan’s phone so that I could get them perfectly lined up with the Nashville skyline in the background.  Once I gave him the signal, Dan got down on one knee and asked Nicolette to marry him.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story 😍📷💍🥂
