You never think that rain on your wedding day is ACTUALLY lucky. But this wedding proved that wrong! The beautiful bride and her husband celebrated in a beautiful venue located outside of Nashville on a wonderful, romantic rainy day.
Meet Courtney + Griffin
- Can you share something you learned through the wedding planning process?
I think what I learned most overall is it doesn't really matter what goes "right" or "wrong" because at the end of the day it is truly about the vows and becoming husband and wife. It stormed the day of our wedding and we had planned for an outdoor ceremony in the rose garden. We had to have it inside the Pavilion where the reception was being held and it was just as beautiful and perfect as we had hoped for! Don't stress! As long as you become husband and wife everything else is just a bonus!
- Where there any points in your relationship that were a turning point that sparked your love for each other?
As crazy as this may sound, we both knew almost immediately that we were soulmates. We even got matching tattoos with the Japanese character meaning "soulmates" only a few weeks into our relationship.
