Carley & John tied the know at Carley’s beautiful childhood home — which just happens to be a picture perfect Franklin, Tn farm with a log cabin thats well over 100 years old! 

Christina had a special vision for her bridal session – and I loved it!

Hello + happy Thursday! Today’s share is a bridal session we did recently at the ever-gorgeous Scarritt Bennett Center chapel. It’s always a joy to shoot there, but there’s something about winter that makes the old gothic architecture and soaring ceiling-arches seem especially beautiful…almost with a Jane Eyre-esque mystery.

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 story SHOULD begin on August 3rd, 2013…Michael and Lexie both attended a pool party that day; Michael with his roommate, and Lexie with some church friends. Although there were probably only 30 people there, they didn’t meet. Yet.”

Today’s wedding is a gorgeous one – one of those moments that’s so pungent you just want to soak it all up. Rich with an autumn color palette and deep tonal details, every part of it seemed to only compliment the bounty of beauty already present in nature this time of year!

Today we’re sharing the brilliant engagement story, along with the wedding photos from The Cordelle for our featured bride and groom, as it’s too good to miss!

Jenna and Andrew, today’s bride and groom, met at 7 years old on the soccer field, and though they didn’t start dating until age 22, it’s clear this wedding has been many years in the making!
