Happy Friday, everyone!

This week you get a bonus blog post! We are so excited to share some favorites from Catherine and Gabe’s Houston Station wedding from this past weekend! These two are just fantastic, and we had the best time celebrating with them and all their friends and family. Catherine and Gabe met online, and are so fun together. They love to hang out and enjoy all the amazing food Nashville has to offer (one of the things Catherine was most excited about for the wedding was the cheese plate–and after seeing the smoked porter cheddar I totally understand why!). They planned such a beautifully personal wedding, with Catherine adding her own creative touches to those of the amazing teams from A Delightful Day and Brocade Design Arts! Catherine made three custom paintings that added to the decor, a painting of her and Gabe, paper flowers, the adorable cake topper, and more. Their Jewish ceremony under the custom floral chuppah was beautiful and touching, and followed by an amazing party of a reception! Plus, they had funfetti cake–how awesome is that?!

Here are a few (ok, more than a few ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ) of our favorite images from the day!

    Bob Borman - Celebration, coronation, inauguration and sanctification. Elegant and stunning!

Hello, everyone!

Today we are excited to be sharing some favorite images from Melissa and Dustin’s classic Union Station Nashville wedding and Scarritt Bennett ceremony! Although Melissa and Dustin have lived in several different places, they first met in Nashville (and each have their own version of how they met!), which made it the perfect place for their wedding! They planned a stunning celebration with the help of Kelly Dellinger Events, and got to party the night away with all their friends and family.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is getting to hear the friends and family of the bride and groom tell stories about them, and give their impression of their relationship. And what we kept hearing over and over was how well Melissa and Dustin complement each other. They are just so fun together, and so natural with each other. They love watching sports together (and all their favorite teams start with a “B,” just like their last name!). Dustin proposed on a trip to Iceland, after a scary drive through a blizzard to a waterfall where he dropped down on one knee after taking in the incredible view! So it was fitting that their cake topper was two Icelandic trolls (maybe one of my favorite details of the day ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

Here are a few of our favorite images from the day!

    Amy Cherry - yum, yum, yum. SO good!

CJ

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Today we are excited to share some of our favorites from Michelle and Charlie’s gorgeous CJ’s off the Square wedding! I’ve probably said it before, I’ll probably say it again, but spring in Tennessee is just incredible. Saturday was absolutely beautiful, and made even more so by the love these two have for each other. Their smiles are contagious! Michelle and Charlie met at a party hosted by mutual friends, then happened to be at another party the next night where they chatted again. Charlie asked Michelle out that night, and it’s been a beautiful journey ever since! They had a beautifully intimate garden ceremony at CJ’s off the Square surrounded by their closest family and friends (Michelle’s sisters were her bridesmaids!).

Here are just a few of our favorites from the day!

    Amy Cherry - Love it! The lighting is just incredible!

    Charline - I’m DROOLING over here! Can’t wait to see/work with you both in just a couple of weeks :)

Last weekend Chris and I traveled to NYC for Liz and Ernest’s destination engagement session, and it was such a beautiful weekend to be in the city! The trees and flowers were blooming everywhere, the skies were a gorgeous blue, and the sunsets and light were just to die for. Add in some amazing food, visiting with some old friends, and getting to spend a day with Liz and Ernest, and it really couldn’t have been any better!

Liz and Ernest both grew up in small towns in Kentucky, and are both University of Louisville alumni. But they didn’t meet until they were both living in NYC, through a U of L alumni event. They talked the night away, a mutual love of travel, people, bourbon, and of course the Cardinals bringing them together. Their first official date took place at the Met (so of course we had to stop by there for some photos)! Getting the chance to explore with these two and hear their stories was just incredible. Hearing about Liz’s work in Africa and on political campaigns in the states, and about Ernest’s family and his time working in the city painted a picture of two people with incredible hearts, who I know are going to change the world together! We strolled through Central Park, made our way to Lincoln Center, made a short stop at their apartment, walked through Eataly (one of their favorite spots!), and explored the West Village (observing some interesting characters!) before ending the evening.

Here are just a few of our favorites from the day!
