Whenever we receive an invitation to photograph an out-of-State wedding, we are truly honored! It means so much that our clients have such value for what we do, they'd rather have us capture their wedding day than any local photographer. Really?? Thanks! :) That's how we felt when asked to travel to Nashville to photograph Jessica and Bryant's wedding at the Noah Liff Center! After shooting their engagement session at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, on one of the most blustery Spring days in Buffalo, you can imagine our eagerness to head South to the much warmer climates of Nashville, Tennessee!
We met Jessica at her home the morning of the wedding, surrounded by friends and family--calm and cool amidst a flurry of activity.
We have this strong suspicion that Jessica gets her cool from her dad. Just a hunch...
After Jessica's two sisters -- her maid and matron of honor -- got her all laced up in her gown, their mom helped with the final touches by placing her jewelry. Beautiful!
A few miles down I-65 at the Embassy Suites South-Cool Springs, the groomsmen were gearing up for the big day themselves--as you can see from the groom's dapper details below. Looking sharp, guys!
Always a pleasure to get one classic shot of the groomsmen. This one right outside the hotel is just stellar!
All the guests gathered at the Kingdom Hall were in great anticipation of the bride. But none more excited than the groom. We could all see from his expression (quite possibly the biggest grin in the world) how happy he was to see his lady walk towards him down the aisle!
A few quick shots of the bride and groom just outside the Kingdom Hall, and we were on our way to the party!
The Noah Liff Opera Center was a simply beautiful venue, modern yet classic at the same time. We have to say the guests lended as nicely to the ambiance as did the decor. Several of them waited in line to have their picture drawn by the caricature artist. What a unique favor idea!
Why have one cake when you can have two? Love the "his and hers" cakes!
And now for your bride and groom! These two were ready to celebrate--as were their guests, who had prepared not one but two dedication songs. Now that's love!
When the time came for dances, it was Chrisette Michele's "A Couple of Forevers" that had both the bride and groom feeling the love, and singing it to each other so you know they meant it! Way to break it down!
Photographs cannot fully capture all the energy and interaction between the bride and his mom and the groom and her dad during their dances. It was a true celebration of happiness and love!
One final moment to pause and take it ALL in! Bryant & Jessica - thanks for inviting us all the way to Nashville to capture your wedding day! It was our pleasure to work with you and your families as always. We wish you the best as the newest Mr. & Mrs. Brady - and can't wait to see you all again somewhere soon down the road! :)
