Have you ever met someone and feel like you've been friends forever? Well, thats exactly how I felt when I met Valen! I just knew I wanted to be a part of her special day the more and more she talked about it, and how much she loved her Fiancé Griffin! Their whole relationship is a fairytale, and they even got engaged right in front of Cinderella's Castle at Walt Disney World! I had the opportunity to photograph their engagement photos and Valen's bridal portraits last fall (blog post coming very soon!) and they were so fun to be around! I just knew their wedding was going to be so wonderful just by the way they interacted with each other and talked about their relationship and family!
Valen and Griffin were blessed with a BEAUTIFUL wedding day! It seriously couldn't have been any better! The sun was shining, the temperature was just right, and the trees were just starting to bloom! The whole day was filled with so much love and beauty, it will forever be a favorite of mine! I always cry at every single wedding I photograph, but I probably teared up about four or five times due to how truly loved and supported they are! The love their friends and family have for them is SO, SO evident, and it absolutely warms my heart to no end.
They got married at The Lodge in Nashville, TN, which is one of my FAVORITE wedding venues! Not only is this venue absolutely gorgeous, but it holds a very special place in my heart because in May of last year I got married there as well! It was so wonderful to be back and witness two truly incredible people tie the knot at such a special place! I had the hardest time narrowing down my favorites, because everything was just so beautiful! So, without further ado, here are some of my absolute favorite images from Valen & Griffin's big day!!
Valen & Griffin - Thank you so much for choosing me to be your photographer! You both are so wonderful and I am honored to have been a part of your wedding experience! I cannot wait to share your entire wedding gallery with you, but for now enjoy this little sneak peek!! Have fun on your honeymoon!! xoxo
I want to give a BIG thank you to all of the wonderful vendors that helped make this day possible!!
