Meeting these two was just meant to be! Our team was already at Belle Meade Plantation setting up for a wedding, when a lovely bride walked into the venue with her parents in tow. I believe it may have been the father of the bride who asked me for my information first, since he saw me running around and likely figured he didn’t want that to be him a year from that month! From there it was such a great time getting to know and love the energy of this entire family. They were such a joy to be around and had such enthusiasm over everything, there was just no way this day could have gone anything but perfectly – even when a downpour started and we moved to Plan B at the last minute!
I could tell from our first phone call that Sam had a free spirit and that she couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle to meet Joey. These two really have beautiful, creative souls that are warm and welcoming, and you could see that throughout each of their family members that helped put together this beautiful soiree! I truly love how their personal style showed through – I mean, the dress still kills me it’s so amazing, we felt so honored to be a part of this beautiful day!
Jenny and Chuck are the quiet but thoughtful sort of couple that are just perfect for each other. They’re both very simple, but intentional in all their choices and I loved that about them.
The morning of their wedding, we all woke up and saw that the ground was covered in snow. It didn’t matter that one week prior it was 70+ degrees out, in Nashville, you never know what is coming! But that didn’t even phase these two. While the snow melted just in time to take a few pictures outdoors, their wedding was a perfect and flawless affair with close family in friends. Congrats!
Mariel is one of those gentle souls who likes things to be absolutely perfect, but always in a calm, observant sort of way. When we had our first phone call I knew that our personalities could mesh in such a way that I would be able to bring peace to her throughout the planning process. And when she came back and said she wanted to work together, I think we both knew that it was going to be an amazing collaboration. She is careful and calculated in her decision making, and I know that is why she and Brandon are going to make it. She turned to me once with tears in her eyes and said “I just can’t wait to marry him”; it was unsolicited and just pure joy. These two are going to have a beautiful marriage!
If you’re going to celebrate NYE at a wedding, this is the way to do it! Caitlin & Elliott had small morning nuptials at their high school amongst close family and friends, and then turned the evening into a black-tie affair at the Oz Arts Center. The band was roaring, the food was delicious, and the guests were all dressed to the 10’s! It was such a fabulous evening, everyone let loose and had a good time celebrating these two, it was certainly the perfect way to ring in the new year! We are a little short on images, but hope you can see the beauty within the few we have 🙂
Sarah is a very independent, driven business woman who knows what she wants – and her wedding is no different. We met in a Women in Business networking group, hit it off, and she excitedly told me that she had an inkling she was to be engaged soon enough! As only someone like Sarah knows, within weeks she was engaged and I was on the phone setting up a time to meet with herself and her sweet fiance, Drew. Sarah had her vision right from the start – a winter wedding, and she had all the ideas in her head ready to implement. We were so happy to be at the beautiful Noah Liff Opera Center to help execute her big day, it turned out to be a gorgeous, winter wonderland that smelled like an evergreen forest! Congrats Sarah & Drew!
I love a good 6 degrees of separation game. So when this darling bride called me, she told me she know who I was because she was roommates in NY with one of my husband’s friends, in the same building – 10 years ago – then two years ago moved to Nashville, fell in love RIGHT when she got here, and was marrying the man she saw across the bar and knew she wanted to date. What?? Now I have to give her props, first of all, because I know this crazy roommate of hers, and I knew I had to love any girl who could live with someone as wild as him! And second of all, because she and her mother have extraordinary taste. I was so thrilled to be a party of this gorgeous wedding, I think we all just have to thank her groom, Dillon, for letting us go with things and make it truly exquisite. Thank you, Kristin, I loved getting to work with you!
Sweet, sweet Maria. I don’t think you’ve heard a gentler voice than this one. I absolutely adore her loving energy and how it compliments Chase’s rugged “boy”-ish personality perfectly. When Maria saw Chase for the first time, she called her mom and said she met the man she was going to marry – even though they hadn’t really even spoken! Sometimes I think that two people are just meant to be and their senses gravitate towards one another. This is that case. And we got to help make this day absolutely beautiful. Thank you for that.
These two beautiful souls were brought to me by a friend of mine. He barely even knew the couple, just that they were engaged and looking for some guidance throughout their process. I feel so lucky that he was in the right place at the right time to refer me, because the pure, youthful love and glow that these two have is truly worth admiring. Emilijah and Josh are the picture perfect heart-eyed emoji. Just the way they look at one another or talk and laugh and even contradict one another, is why they will make a beautiful marriage that lasts. You can see it captured in the images below by the talented Jordan and Alaina. If only I could show the full lot! Many thanks to the fate that brought us together. Happy to know these two.
I had the pleasure of going to Turkey 3.5 years ago, and I fell in love with the country. The people were amazing, the food was delicious and the sites were breathtaking. I think my husband loved their coffee the best and I loved the turkish delight and the views. So it was such a joy when I got called from the mother of the groom, saying that her son was marrying a native Turkish woman and they wanted to have their ceremony and reception in Nashville! I love multi-culture relationships, so I was on board from the start! It was amazing how Gizzm really wanted to enjoy our local customs and traditions vs. her own, and so gave her a beautiful and memorable day. Even though our outdoor ceremony got rained out, the day couldn’t have been more beautiful for these two.
