Rachel & Alex’s Downtown Nashville Engagement Session

I had fun getting to know these two on a perfect fall day. We started their Engagement Session at Centennial Park, because several months ago, Alex flew in town, surprised Rachel there and asked her to marry him on the steps of the Parthenon. From there we made our way to the Shelby pedestrian bridge downtown. Rachel won’t be living in Nashville after they get married, so she wanted to capture this beautiful city in their images since it’s an important piece of their story.

Liz & Thomas’ Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding, Nashville TN

Liz, Thomas and their families were an absolute delight to work with and I’m thrilled to share their lovely Nashville wedding day. Liz was a stunning and graceful bride in her Pronovias gown at West End United Methodist Church, which was a beautiful setting with its wood arched atrium and old stone. Thomas owns an extensive collection of country music vinyl, so their reception at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum was the perfect choice. He was all smiles while we were doing their portraits at Walk of Fame Park and inside the museum. The Event Hall, on the top floor of the museum, boasts beautiful views of downtown Nashville from its wall of windows. I love it when Nashville gets all dressed up and Jayne Bubis Events did an amazing job!

Kristen & Sean’s Nashville TN Destination Wedding at The Cordelle

Kristen is a self proclaimed ‘Military Brat” who has lived all over, including Germany when she was a young girl. Sean is from Mobile, Alabama, but they both currently live and work in Dallas. So the question became, “Where in the U.S. will we get married?” They decided to choose a city that was a fun destination and an easily accessible distance for their friends and family to travel. They decided on Nashville and The Cordelle with accommodations at The Westin.

Kristen chose a beautiful, yet simple wedding gown design by Truvelle, based in Vancouver, Canada. The bridesmaids wore a soft color palette of complimenting pastel hues by Jenny Yoo. Bella Petali did a beautiful job dressing up The Cordelle with lovely florals, and I’m a fan of any caterer who serves biscuits at the reception. Thank you Mariposa’s Catering!

Here are some of my favorite images from Kristen and Sean’s wedding day in Music City. You’re going to love their First Look. Sean’s reaction was priceless. HDP-Wells-10_-WEB.jpg
