Although Sarah Sidwell usually shoots Nashville weddings, she is also a destination wedding photographer. For this wedding, she traveled to Kentucky to capture the love between Emilia & Emerson as they start their lives together.
“I am so excited to begin sharing photos from our trip to Thailand with you..”
I can’t tell this wedding story, without sharing my backstory with Cassie (the bride). I met Cassie my Freshman year at Belmont (nearly 9 years ago!!) through our mutual friend Amanda. Cassie’s confidence and tell-it-like-it-is personality were immediately intriguing to me.
This was our first time at The Fontanel and we can’t wait to go back! The Inn was spilling over with southern charm and it was so peacefully nestled between Tennessee hills. There were bicycles for guests to ride throughout the winery and expansive grounds where golden light flooded in — I wanted to stay all weekend!
You can’t deny looking through these photos that the nautical vibe was pulled off gracefully…
I knew Andrea long before she ever met John. She a cherished close friend and has modeled for me numerous times!! I was so honored to be able to photograph Andrea and John’s wedding. Their wedding was full of beautiful DIY masterpieces! This vintage wedding, held on family property, was complete with charm and attention to detail. From flea market treasures, vintage china plates and teacups, hand sewn napkins . . .
These two are so incredibly cute. Looking at them there is no way around it, but as you look at these photos, I hope there is something else you notice… gentleness. When I photograph couples, I often get to know them as we hang out… and in turn learn a little of their love story. Alicia, Everett and I began our shoot at a local coffee shop where they told me the story of how their relationship began (as I snapped some candid photos of course). Its a story that involved Everett intentionally seeking Alicia out, Alicia slowly getting to know him, Everett wondering if she wasn’t interested… but not giving up… walking a fine line between persistence and giving Alicia space and time to figure out what she wanted, hoping he wouldn’t get stuck in the “friend zone”.
One of my favorite sessions to date! So much fun playing with this bride… I love it when brides are up for twirling and and laughing, so much joy can be captured!!
