Happy Thanksgiving week, everyone!

Saturday was our final wedding of 2014, and it was an absolutely gorgeous day here in Nashville for Becky and Joe’s wedding at historic Cedarwood! We got to meet Becky and Joe earlier this year for their engagement session at Aviation Challenge camp, where they met. I think one of the things I love the most about them is that you can tell they just belong together. They have an easy-going way that just feels right. They planned a stunning wedding at Cedarwood, but what really mattered was that they were joining together, becoming a family, and celebrating with so many people that dearly love them! The joy was truly overflowing, and we were so honored to be a part of it!

Here are some of our favorite moments of the day!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

After the last few days of rainy, dreary, snowy (ok, I love that part!) weather, it’s been awesome to bask in the last of the fall glory and warmth from Dorsey and Todd’s fall forest engagement session last weekend! They love the outdoors, and Todd proposed after a day of hiking, exploring, reading and napping. Which Dorsey says describes them perfectly! They are so sweet together, and truly enjoy each other’s company, which I love! Dorsey’s family owns a cabin in Beersheba Springs, TN, that was built by her grandparents and finished just before she was born. The whole family takes turns going up there every so often, and she suggested it as a location for their engagement session. Um, it was incredible! The architecture of the cabin was amazing, we had the pleasure of getting to meet some of Dorsey’s family, and the surrounding area was a stunning landscape of golds and reds. It’s not every day that sessions feel like a relaxing getaway for us, but this afternoon definitely recharged us! We had such a great time adventuring and exploring with these two, and how cute are they?! Here are a few of our favorites from the day:

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

So seriously, how perfect of a fall weekend was last weekend? We had gorgeous weather and the fall color was in full glory for Jessica and Eric’s CJ’s off the Square wedding, and we were so happy to celebrate with them! We got to know Jessica and Eric during their NYC engagement session, and were excited for them to come to Franklin with all their friends and family. Jessica and Eric came to town the weekend before, and got to enjoy all the awesome downtown Franklin had to offer leading up to the wedding (including the Frothy Monkey–my favorite)!

I love how Jessica and Eric truly enjoy each other’s company, and love spending time together and experiencing all life has to offer. When we arrived for getting ready photos, Jessica was experiencing some slight pre-wedding jitters. Not about getting married, but because she so couldn’t wait to see her best friend! Jessica told me they having a saying: “I’m marrying my best friend and the one I love. He/she is the one I run to first whether I have good news or bad, because they are the person I want to rejoice with, but find comfort with when times are bad.” All day they were both just so excited to spend time with each other–best friends, in love, getting married, surrounded by all the friends and family who love them most. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Their intimate garden ceremony took place right at sunset, and was followed by a killer dance party of a reception!

These are a few of our favorite images from Jessica and Eric’s wedding!

Oh my goodness, we are so excited to share Griffin and Ross’s Scarritt Bennett wedding today! You might remember Ross and Griffin from the photos we posted from their adventure engagement session in Colorado (part one & part two). These two high school sweethearts were married Saturday at Scarritt Bennett, with an incredible reception at The Rosewall!

Ross and Griffin are high school sweethearts, but the depth of their relationship goes so much further than that. They met through high school choir (they are both incredibly talented!), and became best friends, and then fell in love. They both eventually ended up in Nashville for college, before their entrepreneurial and adventurous spirits took them to Colorado! I just can’t say enough about how sweet these two are together, and how amazing their outlook on the world is! We got to know them more during their engagement session, and one thing I remember Griffin talking about was how important every single person in their wedding party was. They are so intentional with their relationships, and care so deeply for the people close to them. And when we showed up on the wedding day, it was abundantly clear that their bridesmaids and groomsmen feel the same way! The entire day was full of so much love and excitement, and Griffin’s smile was a mile wide all day long! Their families and friends were so excited to celebrate with these two, after watching them grow (and grow up!) together!

I could go on forever about how wonderful everything was haha, but instead I’ll get on to some of our favorite images of the day!

I’m sure that usually when the band gets a request for the groom to sing a song, they usually get pretty nervous! But we all knew that when Ross got up there, it would be nothing short of amazing! Which of course, it was. And seriously one of the cutest thing ever. These two had eyes only for each other!!
