January 10, 2011

Emily & Matt were married at Owens Chapel Church of Christ in Brentwood.  It was such a beautiful day, the weather was perfect, and the little flower girl, Lily stole my heart!  I will share some of the best of Emily’s bridal portrait session in the next blog.  She was such a beautiful bride!

Emily was kind enough to share some of her thoughts on planning below.  Thanks, Em!!

Your favorite and least favorite part of planning? “Favorite- bridal pics.  Least- picking reception venue.”

The most memorable moment of your wedding day? “Waiting for door to open for me to walk down aisle.”
What you would change, if anything? “Would have invited few more people.”
Where your budget was best spent? “The church (Owens Chapel).”
Any advice for future brides? “Have a short engagement….less stress!”

Jill & Mark ~ Hot Springs, NC wedding ~ 9.19.09

October 19, 2009

Jill & Mark were married at Fairview Methodist Church in Hot Springs, NC, amidst a beautiful mountain setting. After an abundance of, “Lord, please let it stop raining for a few hours” prayers, the sunshine popped out just long enough for the entire wedding and reception…and then the bottom dropped out! (Thanks for listening Big Man!)

Jill described herself as an “older, first-time bride,” but she was as nervous and giddy as a schoolgirl as she dressed and primped for her groom. It was adorable to watch and the ladies kept me smiling all afternoon. Mark was the most precious, attentive guy as he blotted Jill’s forehead and carried her train. Who said chivalry was dead?

Here are some memories from their big day.

Jessica & Matthew’s Engagement session ~ Nashville, TN

September 29, 2009

Jessica & Matthew were engaged at Free Will Baptist Bible College so we started our session there before heading to Centennial Park. We had to fight the quickly setting sun, but we got a few fun shots in before darkness set in…and a few after as well! The wedding is coming up in early November. Can’t wait!

Michelle & Tim’s wedding ~ Nashville, TN ~ 8.29.09

September 23, 2009

Details, details, details! I love the little details! Michelle & Tim worked with Jennifer Milam of Reveal Event Style to create a posh setting for the wedding and reception at the home of Michelle’s parents in Green Hills. The weather was perfect and we took advantage of the beautiful sunshine poking through the shade trees on the property. These two were a pleasure to work with!

The customized fans were adorable!

Love this shot of Michelle’s mom and her grandma!

Mr. Ross’s living room was turned into a ballroom! And what a beautiful cake by Dulce Desserts.

No detail was left unattended. The lanterns and chandeliers were gorgeous!


Michelle’s mom was the life of the party! I love this shot of her dancing with her daughter and dad cheering them on in the background. Sweet!


Thanks M + T!
