This is a fair warning - this blog post is a little on the long side, so grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and stay a while! I loved everything about this wedding. It's no secret that Riverwood Mansion is one of my FAVORITE wedding venues in Nashville, so naturally I was in a photographer's paradise right from the start! Kate and Andrew found me through one of my sweet 2016 couples, and I will forever be thankful for their referral, because this wedding was an absolute dream. There wasn't a cloud in the sky the entire day, the temperature was just right, the bridesmaids wore the most stunning emerald green dresses, and Kate's gown was so elegant on her. Every single detail was executed perfectly and on top of all that, you could feel the love that surrounded Kate and Andrew their entire day.
I had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites for their blog post - everything was so beautiful and photogenic. I loved Kate's first look with her dad. She looked so beautiful and he was in awe the moment he saw her. Her first look with Andrew is definitely a new favorite. Andrew was a little hesitant on having a first look because he wanted that special moment when she's walking down the aisle during the ceremony. However, Kate decided to make their first look extra special for him. I placed him at the ceremony location, and right before their first look she asked her father to walk her down the aisle, so when Andrew turns around to see her for the first time its when she's walking towards him - just like he wanted. It was so beautiful and emotional.
Being a part of this wedding day was such an honor. Everyone was so kind, welcoming, and so fun! Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. Being able to capture sweet memories like this means so much to me. As you scroll through I hope you love and enjoy these memories just as much as I loved capturing them!
Kate & Andrew - thank you so much for choosing me to capture your big day! What an honor! Thank you for being so sweet and a dream to work with! I'm so grateful for you! Enjoy this sneak peek - I cannot wait to share your entire gallery with you soon!
