Anna Russell and Christopher’s wedding was truly a southern soiree in Nashville. I absolutely adored her Oscar de la Renta dress and all of the classic touches they had throughout the evening.

And now on to the reception. After the ceremony, they transformed the green house by bringing in tables and flowers and a large buffet of fabulous food.  Guests were able to roam the grounds of the botanical gardens, and of course there was dancing like I have never seen dancing before!  Here are the images…

Thank you Kate and Stephen for letting me be apart of your day and thank you to Kimberly Manz for shooting with me!



katie + stephen: part II

One of my favorite parts of the day is getting the couple alone to shoot some portraits.  This may be one of the only times during the day that the couple is alone and it can produce some really nice moments.  Well, Katie and Stephen did not disappoint, so here they are…

… these next few images have a little story behind them. You see, Katie and Stephen met while playing ultimate frisbee, so they decided to make frisbees with the silhouette that Katie had designed on them and give them as favors. And of course, they were up for taking some shots of throwing the frisbee around while in their wedding garb…

Katie and Stephen’s wedding day was absolutely gorgeous and it seemed like everyone helped out to make the day a true celebration.  I had such a wonderful time shooting this wedding and getting to know their families and friends.  The ceremony and reception were both held at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens, which may be one of my new favorite locations to shoot with all of its hidden treasures.  Now on to the photos…

…I just love their invitation… the fonts, the paper, the entire design!
