I was photographing some dresses at The Bride Room when a lovely girl came in to try one on. We started chatting about her wedding, she fell in love with a dress and a few months later I was lucky enough to photograph her marrying the man of her dreams on her wedding day, in that beautiful dress. It was such a wonderful day; full of joy, love and plenty of fun. Carrie & Kris were married in a garden at the gorgeous Cheekwood with an amazing reception at Aerial in downtown Nashville. This is one of the coolest wedding venues and you’ll see why in some of the photos below!
I knew Carrie was going to be a fabulous bride when I saw the dress she picked out. When I walked in and saw her shoes I was more convinced than ever.
Is Carrie gorgeous or what?!? I love this shot of Carrie’s mom looking at her daughter all dressed up and ready to get married. Kris’s brother did all the flowers and he did an amazing job! Cheekwood is such a gorgeous place for a wedding. Loved this shot right after the ceremony, Kris cooling himself off from the heat :) And then it was time to party! Downtown Nashville is the place to be on a Saturday night and I just loved the truly downtown Nashville vibe of Kris & Carrie’s reception! Every table was named after a live music venue in Nashville. Loved the hatch show prints. How can you not love a downtown rooftop party? It’s such a fun atmosphere and I loved having the “batman building” as a backdrop for the photos :) Congratulations Kris & Carrie! Hope you had a fabulous time in Cabo! We truly enjoyed documenting the way you love each other and wish you a lifetime of loving each other more every day.
