Cindy + Steven Wedding

When we met Cindy + Steven at Pinewood Social for breakfast to discuss their wedding we had an awesome time together. Cindy + Steven are funny, intentional, and very much in love. It was our final consult before the big day and we would argue that we laughed and chatted more than we went over the final wedding details (disclaimer: We did go over the details).

Shooting their wedding was so much fun! Cindy + Steven were relaxed, calm, and ready to celebrate their wedding day. They held the ceremony at the beautiful Cathedral of the Incarnation and the reception was at The Bridge Building.

They had a great band, tasty food, and all around these two had a beautiful wedding day. We were so honored to be a part of it! We hope you enjoy this preview of their wedding day.

Cheers!

Ann + Edgar Wedding

Last weekend we got to spend the day with Ann + Edgar capturing their gorgeous wedding in Franklin! Ann's aura exudes tranquility from her yoga lifestyle, and Edgar, an executive chef, has a commanding presence that knows what he wants.  They are two opposites that are a lovely and balanced match.   Edgar is the yin to Ann's yang! 

The weather was hot, but the day was perfect.  We got lots of great photos of them being goofy, being serious, and being loved a lot by all of their guests at the wedding.  We hope you enjoy the preview of their wedding day.

Congrats again Ann + Edgar!

Michelle + Brian Wedding

Michelle + Brian came down from Chicago to celebrate their wedding in Nashville. They met through Michelle's best friend Lauren and Brian came to hang out with them at a Cubs Game. The next thing you know they're in Nashville getting married! Time flies when you're in love!

These two love birds were married at Cannery Row 1.  It's a great industrial space with awesome window light and all the good vibes. Michelle was one of the most relaxed brides we've served to date and her energy radiated throughout the day. She was ready to have a good time and celebrate! When her and Brian finally saw each other on the wedding day it was crystal clear how perfect they are for each other. Brian gushes over her and she keeps him calm and steady.

We hope you enjoy this preview of their wedding... 

Cheers to Michelle + Brian! 

 

Steph + Geoff Wedding

Last Saturday we rolled into West Nashville to begin documenting Steph + Geoff's wedding day. Steph + Geoff live in San Diego but choose Nashville as a central location for their friends and family to gather for their wedding celebration. People came from all over the globe, including Tokyo to join them on this unforgettable day. 

Steph+Geoff said "I Do" in the historic and beautiful Church of the Assumption, with a traditional Catholic ceremony and military exit paying homage to Geoff's position in the United States Navy. After that, Steph + Geoff drove off in the most American Camaro ever made! (See pics below). As they headed downtown with Austin for formals, Adam and I headed over to Pinewood Social with the rest of the bridal party for cocktails and bowling! It was an excellent time to relax and cool off before we ended the evening at Marathon Music Works for the reception.

It was a stellar day capturing these two, their love, and the fantastic friends and family they have supporting them. We hope you enjoy this preview of their wedding day. 

Cheers!

Kaitlin + Alex Wedding

We shot Kaitlin + Alex's Engagement Session last year at an abandoned airfield on an incredibly hot summer day. Somehow, through the walking around, the heat, and the sweat, the pictures looked amazing. The time together also gave us plenty of opportunities to connect and we hit it off right away! Kaitlin + Alex live in Colorado and had flown down to have their pictures taken in Nashville. Shortly after they received their engagement photos Alex reached out and asked if we would shoot their wedding as well because they could not imagine anyone else shooting it. We were honored to say yes!

These two are picture perfect, and their wedding party was so much fun! They got married at the beautiful Cactus Creek Venue in Dickson, Tn. The weather was destined to be another hot summer day and yet again their photos turned out amazing!

We will let the photos tell the rest of the story. We hope you enjoy this preview of Kaitlin + Alex's beautiful country wedding...

Diana + Aron Wedding

Today we're featuring Diana + Aron and all of their wedding glory.  We met Diana last year at Crema and immediately fell in love with her and all of her awesome wedding plans!  We knew this wedding was going to be so perfect when we got a glimpse of Diana's genuine spirit and the way she smiled when talking about Aron. Luckily, Diana + Aron picked us and we had the honor of capturing their special day.

The wedding was a blend of Indian and Western cultures and the result was gorgeous. We started on Friday night capturing their rehearsal dinner / Sangeet at the Country Music Hall of Fame.  Saturday's stunning ceremony was at the Cathedral of the Incarnation with a reception to follow at the Schermerhorn, which is always an elegant backdrop for any bride and groom.  Diana + Aron were perfect all day, and the design by Angela Proffitt + Team was jaw-dropping.  LMA Floral Designs created stunning centerpieces and bouquets.

The pictures tell the rest of the story and we sincerely hope you enjoy Diana + Aron's classic and elegant wedding.  

Karen + Nathan Wedding

Saturday was on fire!! I'm not just talking about the weather, although yes, the weather was very hot. I'm talking about Karen + Nathan's wedding! These two and their wedding party were so great.

This was a very low key wedding with an emphasis on what's most important - friends and family. From the ceremony to the reception, Karen + Nathan's entire day was intimate and intentional. Sarah Willard with Music City Events brought the whole day together seamlessly! It was absolutely perfect.  

Karen + Nathan had a great support network, and the love their friends had for them were clear the entire day.  As far as squad goals go, Karen's bridemaids were for sure on point! These girls definitely have Karen's back.

In the end, the pictures tell the rest of the story. Enjoy this preview of Karen + Nathan's intimate summer wedding.

Also incorporated into the Summit was a style shoot designed by Laurie D'Anne Events in collaboration with Branching Out Florals, Posh Bridal, Baked in Nashville, and Grand Central Party Rentals. The photos from the shoot turned out perfectly!

        • Converting those leads based on their own timeline for making wedding decisions related to your service or product.
