Stephanie and JJ chose the perfect spot to be married – The beautiful Rock Creek Farm Gallatin Wedding Venue is just perfect for a mix of country and elegance.  Their day was beautiful – sunny with lovely temperatures, and a tough of rain for good measure.  Laughter could be heard as we got to work documenting all the beautiful details that went into Stephanie and JJ’s beautiful day.  Their day was full of LOVE and HAPPINESS!!  Just take a look at these photos – you can just see happiness in them!!

As the time for the ceremony neared, big storm clouds began to roll in…before we knew it we had a complete downpour!  Stephane and JJ didn’t let this bother them one little bit.  We even did some photos in the rain with an umbrella.  Once the rain cleared off, they two of them said “I Do” outside, just as planned.  After the sweet ceremony, the couple celebrated with all their special guests.  After wonderful food, yummy cake and lots of dancing, the guests sent Stephanie and JJ off with sparklers, and we even did some fun writing with the sparklers before the night came to a close.  Congrats you two, and thank you for allowing me to capture all these moments for you!

Oh my word.  There is so much to say about this beautiful day!!  Emily and Nick have such a sweet connection between them and I have just adored them from the beginning.  We did their engagement session last year on Emily’s family farm.  As we soaked up the golden sunlight of the late afternoon, her dad bailed hay in the field behind the house.  Talk about picture perfect.  Fast forward to their wedding and it was just as beautiful!  They were married at a simply sweet little country church and we finished bridal party photos just in time for some beautiful golden light for some breathtaking photos the new Mr. & Mrs.  We drove the short distance to her family’s farm where we were greeted by a twinkling array of lights in the beautiful front yard which had a canopy of trees creating the perfect spot for a country reception.  It was truly wonderful seeing family joyously celebrating the new couple.   The evening ended with a traditional sendoff with birdseed and then a surprise showering of silly string from the bridal party!  I am so glad I got to document this elegant country wedding.  Congratulations Emily and Nick!  I wish you the best!

I am so happy to share some highlights of Katherine and Ben’s Wedding day…there is so much to say about it I don’t even know where to start.  It was a beautiful wedding day from beginning to end and took place at one of the most beautiful (in my opinion) churches in Clarksville, TN!   Early in the day everyone was busy preparing – Katherine’s Mom helped her into her dress and helped her put the final touches on, as was surrounded by her closest friends who were laughing and just enjoying every moment leading up to the ceremony.  Meanwhile, Ben was getting ready with all the guys and had the sweetest surprise for Katherine – a bible engraved with her name, as well as a surprise wedding band that completed her set.  Talk about a tear jerker!

The weather kept us wondering all day, but held out for beautiful, elegant photos both before and after they said “I Do”, while raining pretty hard during the ceremony.  We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding day!

Just before the ceremony, Katherine and Ben came together, being careful not to see one another, and exchanged letters they had written to each other.  This was such a special and romantic moment for the two of them as they anticipated saying their vows just a short time later.  Sometimes when you see a couple, you just know that they are meant for one another and you can see how truly devoted to one another they are.  It was apparent that for Katherine and Ben, that is just the case.

The storm cleared off just as the ceremony was over, and everyone joined together for a wonderful time at The Belle Hollow, with friends and family celebrating late into the evening.  There was so much energy and happiness throughout the entire day and things only got more fun as the reception went on.  I love when a group of people have a great time together, and this was no exception!  The beautiful celebration came to a close with the happy couple going out in style with friends and family surrounding them with a beautiful sparkler exit. Be sure to check out the slideshow video at the bottom.

Congratulations Katherine and Ben!  Thank you for having me there to document your beautiful wedding day!

I arrived at Burdoc Farms on Shelby and Jeremy’s wedding day just in time for it to start raining. Sometimes it rains a little bit on wedding days…sometimes it pours and this was the latter! It didn’t just rain a nice little drizzle…it poured all afternoon. I will say it is a first for me to see the bridal party transported to the ceremony barn in an enclosed trailer, but desperate times call for desperate measures and I have to admit it was a brilliant idea and worked out wonderfully! As Shelby stepped out for their absolutely beautiful country ceremony, the rain stopped, and the skies cleared. We couldn’t have had more perfect weather from that point forward!

Shelby and Jeremy put so much into their wedding day. They created so much of the rustic wedding décor themselves and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it all was!  Their creativity inspired me so much. I told Jeremy that he should consider creating pieces for sale – he laughed at that idea!

I hope you enjoy looking through these images of this beautiful wedding at the picturesque location at Burdoc Farms in Hopkinsville, KY. Shelby and Jeremy had a truly beautiful day, despite the rain! Their family and friends shared in their joy and made their day complete. I loved every minute of documenting their wedding day!

Congratulations Shelby & Jeremy!

I am so excited to share some highlights from Janya and Todd’s amazing wedding day!!  It was nothing short of amazing!  These two planned a small intimate ceremony with family, followed by a celebration like no other!  Janya and Todd’s closest friends joined them for a celebration at the newest event venue in Dover (still not quite finished, but it did NOT disappoint – more on it coming soon).  Janya and Todd pulled so much local talent into their big day to make their celebration just perfect.  From the setup, decor and floral arrangements to the wonderful meal, including your favorite soda in glass soda bottles, to some of the most perfect cupcakes I have ever tasted – it was all so wonderful.  And don’t let me forget to mention that Janya’s brother and sister-in-law sang a beautiful song that he wrote himself (see video below and you will hear it.)

Congratulations Janya and Todd.  Your happiness radiates about you and I am so happy you have found one another.  I am so happy and honored to have been a part of your beautiful wedding day.
