Celebrate: Megan & Tommy in Historic Franklin

The second I met sweet, adorable Megan, I knew we would be instant friends!  This girl radiates love and enthusiasm, I just couldn’t wait to meet her fiancé, Tommy, and hear more about their love story.

They chose the beautiful Historic Franklin to share their vows.  The quaint church ceremony followed by a fabulous, high energy reception at The McConnell House, was the perfect recipe to start off their marriage.  And even the little bit of rain during their first look was bound to bring good luck to these two, because the day couldn’t have been any more perfect! Oh, and did I mention that Jeni’s Ice Cream Truck was there?!  We’ll just say it was a delish 🙂

Ceremony Venue: St. Paul’s Presbyterian
Reception Venue: The McConnell House
Wedding Coordinator: Christina Logan Design
