Chris + Kate... what can I say about this beautiful, sweet couple? I've been so blessed with genuinely wonderful couples to film, and they are no exception. One of the blessings about getting to do this job is being constantly surprised and reminded about how lovely people are. Being around them on their most special day is an inspiring thing!
Kate was a gorgeous bride. Her look was romantic and soft, pink and poised; all of the things little girls want to be as they grow up dreaming of their wedding day. Her hair and makeup were flawless, making her features striking but not overstated. I later discovered that she creates her own makeup video tutorials. Girl knows what's up. Check her out!
Chris is one of those grooms who only has eyes for his bride, and he was so affectionate to her from the first moment of their "First Looks." An interesting thing I've noticed about First Looks (including ours from my own wedding) is that, while brides spend so much time and energy over the details of the dress, hair, and flowers, grooms can't take their gaze away from their bride's eyes. Of course they eventually take in the whole picture, but during every First Looks I've seen the groom is less concerned with the details and more enamored with the bride just being there. You can see this was no exception, below.
The ceremony took place in the courtyard at Cellar One in downtown Nashville. A beautiful, intimate setting with patio lights strung above and through the green trees. The reception followed inside, where highlights included a Southern-influenced menu complete with salad in mason jars and fruit pie for dessert.
