KATHLEEN + HUGH | MARRIED!

Kathleen and Hugh's Belle Meade Plantation wedding was stunning and some of our favorite things were their emotional first look, the perfect weather, their fun wedding party, the Broadway-bound bachelorette party that walked by Kathleen and Hugh after the ceremony, yelling their congrats in that only-in-Nashville kind of way, the way they took care of their wedding guests with the cocktails and food a-plenty, including the late night Krystal run, their incredible reception band that got the party pumping, and their bubbly getaway. Kathleen and Hugh, thank you for asking us to document your day, it was perfect.

JESS + SCOTT | MARRIED!

In the middle of all those incredibly rainy spring days we've had, Jess and Scott had their wedding at Cheekwood on Earth Day. It was a rollercoaster watching the weather predictions swing from absolutely perfect to outright downpours leading up to the ceremony. It downpoured. Jess and Scott calmly and graciously accepted Earth Day's contribution, moved their ceremony indoors, tightened up the leaks in the reception tent, swept away the standing water, and had a wedding. It was a beautiful insight into how they as a couple face the challenges in their paths. We were so honored to witness their vows surrounded by friends and family that love them very, very much. 

A special thank you to Emily Piepenbrink, the wedding coordinator, who without so much as a blink rearranged all the plans on the fly and made everything go incredibly smoothly, and the incredible Rachel Rodriguez and The Gringo Starz for creating an electric atmosphere for a raging party (when it rains, you know the party is gonna be good!)!
