TESS + RENIL | MARRIED!

Tess and Renil had a classy wedding, filled with meaningful traditions. We caught the last of the Fall leaves on Vanderbilt's campus, just as the light was fading. They had the most beautiful reception, creating a magical experience for their guests, complete with the most beautiful food and the best dance party to finish the night. Thank you, Tess and Renil for asking us to photograph your day!

AMANDA + DAVE | MARRIED!

When people say they want to have a relaxed, no-stress wedding day, I think this is what they mean. Amanda and Dave planned their day just how they wanted. Every bit of it felt like a good kind of family reunion. We showed up at the homes they were getting ready in, and you know a couple is great when all of their friends meeting each other for the first time are instant friends. Amanda and Dave said their vows in Beaman park surrounded by perfect color. It was sprinkling throughout, but the canopy of trees protected them and their guests. Amanda and Dave have worked hard on their backyard landscaping, so we took a few pictures there and then headed to Smith and Lentz to meet up with their guests, which felt just like meeting up and hanging out on your day off, just in fancier clothes. Dave and Amanda, we loved your wedding and the incredibly warm space you created for your whole day.

PAUL + SARAH | MARRIED!

Sarah and Paul have been together since high school and a wedding never seemed too terribly urgent. A family friend changed that when she offered, or rather, told, Sarah that their property was going to be where Sarah and Paul would get married. This low-key approach was the ticket, and this past summer, Sarah and Paul said their vows overlooking the Cumberland River. Folks yelled 'congratulations' from their boats as they glided by. Sarah and Paul's dogs dashed around throughout the day and rounded up the guests for the ceremony. It was a beautiful, sparkling day with intention spilling out at the seams. Thank you, Sarah and Paul, for asking me to photograph this incredible occasion.

IRIS + DANNY | MARRIED!

The sky opened up on Iris and Danny's wedding day at Arrington Vineyard and dumped buckets of water. They cozied their ceremony under their reception tent and we hurried underneath tree coverage during the less rainy minutes of the day to snag a few pre-ceremony pictures. By the end of their ceremony, the skies had cleared and the sunset was a unique shade of pink while we took pictures between the vines. One of our favorite parts of the day were the toasts given by Iris and Danny's family. What an incredible support system you two have. Thank you for inviting us into your family for the day, it was full of love!
