Historic Church Wedding

True love was so clearly displayed on this wedding day. The couple chose an incredibly beautiful historic church to say their vows before all they loved. This location is not only beautiful, but also sentimental to the bride and groom.

Everything about this couple's wedding style is both classic and unique. The bride's engagement ring caught my eye the first time we met over Jeni's ice cream! Its a beautiful vintage filigree ring from Walton's Jewelers in downtown Franklin. The sapphire in the bride's wedding band carries over into the navy blue bridesmaid dresses which were all styled creatively with their wrapped/scarf tops (these dresses come from a rental company - so if you are looking to rent your maid's dresses - pay attention to the links at the bottom of the post). The bride's dress is from LVD (a bridal boutique here in Nashville) and it is so STRIKING! Its elegant, sophisticated, sleek, while having vintage and soft organic hints. The colors were perfectly chosen with rich fall tones - keeping their bridesmaids and groomsmen in navy blue suits and dresses with pops of deep reds in their bouquets and ties. 

Often church's don't have beautiful spaces for bride's to get ready (in which case I recommend other location options for getting ready photos), but this church's getting ready space is STUNNING! Some of my favorite photos of the day were taken while Allison was in the bridal suite. The architecture and window light complimented her wedding dress perfectly!

Allison and Zach - Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day! We love your tender hearts, your playful spirits, and your focus on making what truly matters the priority of your day!
