Emily’s ‘Chihuly’ Bridal Portrait Session ~ Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, Nashville, TN

January 10, 2011

Just wanted to share a few shots from Emily’s awesome bridal session that we shot back in October at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.  (Yes, October.  That’s the only thing that stinks about bridal sessions–I can’t show them off until after the wedding!!)

Luckily the Chihuly exhibit was going on during the same time so we got to take advantage of the beautiful blown glass art that was set up throughout the gardens.  Gorgeous!

Check out the blog for Emily’s wedding to Mr. Matt B. here.

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!”
