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.

Love wins when a man and a woman are perfectly created for one another. That's Eric + Lauren. Any time spent around these two love birds and you'll see two puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. Their eyes show respect for one another. Love for one another. Compassion for one another. Grace for one another. Gratitude for each other.
Towards the end of Eric + Lauren's reception celebration, a film crew arrived for taping. Country entertainer, Kelsea Ballerini, needed a real life wedding firework exit to put in her upcoming video, Legends. Eric + Lauren were the lucky couple chosen. Woot! Woot! After three or four exit runs, the video crew had what they needed and so did we as photographers. I cannot thank Chelsey Ssmohano enough for asking me to assist on this beautiful wedding! What a fun time we had together. In case you're interested, at the :30 second mark of the music video, you can see the real wedding exit. You'll see Chelsey running backwards getting photos. I'm kneeling on the ground shooting up towards the couple, so you won't see me. My Hollywood debut will have to wait. =)
When the baby needs a nap, everyone takes a turn until she only wants Mom.
A little first dance practice...
I was beyond excited when I arrived at Meadow Hill Farm in Columbia, Tennessee. This would be my first time to shoot a wedding there with fellow photographer Laurie Oakes. My wedding photographer friends have been raving about this venue. Upon entering the gravel driveway, it was pretty easy to tell why Meadow Hill Farm is a big hit with brides to be and wedding vendors. Meadow Hill Farm is GORGEOUS! There are gardens of chaotic wild flowers everywhere. Mature trees fill the property making any outdoor lover swoon every time the breeze blows through the leaves. It didn't take this native Wisconsin gal long to figure out that the bride's corridor is an old milk house. LOVE! The groom's corridor is like a cabin. I hadn't parked my car yet and I was thinking to myself, "how long before I can come back and shoot another wedding?"
Josh and Sharly have two beautiful daughters and an inseparable love for one another. They've been together a number of years and you can see it in how comfortable they are with one another. They joked around as if they had been married forty years already. Their intimate wedding was a perfect fit for their personalities. I wish them a happy marriage filled with unending love.
