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

Megan & Andrew’s Rehearsal Dinner at The Haven, Birmingham AL

Megan & Andrew’s Rehearsal Dinner at Haven was beautifully designed by Hothouse Design Studio & Prophouse Birmingham. It was a wonderful celebration of time-tested, lifelong friendships and the adoration of close knit families. I was blessed and inspired by the kind words I heard spoken about Megan and Andrew. They are wonderful examples of true friendship. It was a lovely evening.

Julie & Derek’s Surprise Wedding at a Friend’s Private Home in Mountain Brook, AL.

 

Julie and Derek disguised their wedding as an Engagement Party and surprised all of their family and guests when they revealed the real reason for the gathering at their friends’ home. And, we made our own sunshine for their portraits outside late into the evening. It was fun keeping their secret and capturing their nuptials. Such a sweet couple and I wish them the very best!

Sarah Corrine & David’s Vestavia Hills, AL Wedding [Avon Theater Reception]

David’s Mom, Cindi ,and I have known each other for years. She owns a pilates and cycle studio in Birmingham where I used to teach. So, I was so excited when I was asked to photograph her son, David’s wedding. It was such a lovely wedding in shades of white with powder blue bridesmaids dresses by Amsale. Sarah Corrine’s custom wedding gown by Birmingham’s own Heidi Elnora, was classic and timeless, created to give Sarah Corrine two slightly different looks for the wedding ceremony and the reception.

It was obvious that Sarah Corrine and David adore each other! I wish them all the best for a lifetime together of health and happiness.

Hamilton & Jake’s Engagement Session in Downtown Franklin, TN

I had so much fun with Hamilton & Jake during their Engagement Session in downtown Franklin! I wasn’t available to shoot their upcoming wedding in Birmingham, but excited with them for their nuptials and move to Nashville. Glad we’ll have some more Birmingham natives in this town! They are such a sweet couple and it was fun roaming around on a beautiful fall afternoon with them. Jake is one lucky guy!

Sarah & Bubba’s Birmingham Wedding at Swann Lake Stables

Sarah was a sweet, beautiful and relaxed bride. She gracefully meandered around Swann Lake Stables barn and grounds bordering the Cahaba River in her Kelly Faetanini dress, Toni Federici veil and Badgley Mischka heels. Bubba, her adoring groom, wore a formal white dinner jacket well. Humphrey Bogart would be impressed. The bridesmaids wore lovely in their soft blush pink dresses by Wtoo.

Sarah & Bubba’s  details were perfectly curated by Courtney Wolf of Invision Events, with a nod to the groom’s love of hunting, especially turkey hunting. Turkey feathers were thoughtfully placed into all white flower arrangements by Hot House Design Studio. And, the subject of many guests’ iPhone cameras was the amazingly detailed wild turkey groom’s cake. Even the feathers were edible!

I always say I have the sweetest couples and families and I really do! I feel so blessed! Sarah’s Mom and I hit it off from the first time we met over coffee to discuss the wedding and my possible role as their photographer. I’m so thankful they chose me. It was a privilege and a pleasure to capture their wedding story. It was perfect. You can also see this amazing wedding on Borrowed & Blue here.
