I first met Nathan and Emily at George and Lauren's gorgeous wedding. We would eventually meet-up in Columbia at Muletown for coffee and for me to hear about their love story. Since their wedding is going to be at Meadow Hill Farm in October, we also did their engagement session there too. It was a bit chilly, but it warmed up quickly once the dancing started. Dancing? Yes! At some point during the session, I usually ask my couples for their best dance moves. If there's any tension, that flies out the window in moments. Haha. It's about being able to laugh one minute and be vulnerable the next. Emily's tears truly represent how blessed she feels to marry the man of her dreams in October. I am blessed to be capturing their day.

I was planning a trip to Colorado about the same time I received an email from bride-to-be Vanessa. JP and Vanessa, now married, met and live in Colorado. Coincidence? Vanessa is from Nashville and they would be getting married at the Historic Stone Hall. It's a beautiful venue; especially for intimate weddings. Vanessa conveyed that their wedding would be small with only their dearest family and friends surrounding them. I loved the sound of everything they had planned and that she wanted a journalistic feel to the day. That's truly my favorite way to capture weddings.
My favorite part during the wedding may have been when Vanessa said 'vows' to JP's young daughter, Paley. After the wedding, guests were treated to one of the best hot chicken venues Nashville has to offer, Hattie B's. In fact, JP got so excited when Hattie B's arrived that he asked me to stop their portraits to take a photo of the Hattie B's airstream pulling up. =) That's dedication to a favorite restaurant. The celebration only got better when The John Tomlin & Company Band started playing. They were AH-MAH-ZING! If you love or even like Bluegrass then you gotta hear them! My favorite part of the night was when Vanessa laid old quilts on the ground for guests to sit on. The quilts were sewn by her grandmother. As a quilt maker (ok I've only made two) and lover of quilts, this made my heart swoon. I wish them a lifetime of happiness!
