Wedding celebrations are few and far between for me. This just makes those few that I accept so much more special. Months ago Anna’s sister, Wendy, wrote me and asked if I was interested in shooting Anna’s wedding in September. You see three years ago I photographed Wendy and Will’s wedding and this year they have been blessed with an adorable child. I really enjoy this family and their friends. The majority of the guests were from across the pond. Their closest friends camping in really nice RV’s on the family farm. So many super cool details thanks to the work of Elizabeth James, Nashville’s premier wedding and event planner.

A stunning dress and the bridal veil waiting for their big moments.

The day was gorgeous with loads of wonderful light!

Perhaps my favorite thing at the reception ....

I love how all the natural elements fit in with this truly elegant celebration.

First dance to "Love Train". The dance floor was lucite over the pool.
