lindsay + david // married!

I am so excited to show you this wedding! Lindsay and David's wedding was such a fun celebration. The entire bridal party and both of their families were so nice and made us feel like guests. The joy in the room was so apparent...everyone was so happy to celebrate this marriage.

To start things off, here's a little video with highlights from their day:

Both the ceremony and reception took place at Rolling Hills Community Church which is located at The Warehouse in Franklin, TN. It was such a neat, modern building! I absolutely loved all the brightly colored walls and fun furniture...it made for some fun detail shots. :)

The flowers by Bianca Oeser of Simply Chic Creations & Events were absolutely stunning! I loved the simplicity of having all white flowers. It was very classy and elegant.

Lindsay and David chose to do a First Look and see each other before the wedding. I absolutely LOVE when brides and grooms choose to do this, because it is such a special moment between just the two of them (and me and Jonathan hiding in the shadows.) It also allows us to have plenty of time to make sure we get all the special photographs they want.

On the day of their wedding it was raining and storming pretty consistently...but just as we were getting ready to do their formal shots, the clouds parted and the rain ceased! I almost broke out into the Hallelujah Chorus! I believe the change in weather was an extra little wedding gift from God to them. :)

Do you see those two gorgeous photos below? My super-awesome husband/second-shooter Jonathan captured those. I'll say it once, and I'll say it again...I absolutely LOVE having him with me to shoot weddings. It's always fun to see how we can be shooting the same subject at the same time and get completely different images. Makes me giddy!

David's dad, Pastor Rich, was the minister for the ceremony. Whenever the pastor is a family member, it always adds an extra touch of special emotion to the service. I love it!

After the ceremony, we snuck back outside to snap a few more shots of just the two of them. The lighting was so golden and perfect.

The hall where the ceremony and reception both took place was lit beautiful by Nashville Event Lighting. They hung dozens of paper lanterns and hundreds of twinkly lights all over the place. It created such a beautiful and romantic atmosphere!

Congratulations, Lindsay and David! You two are such a sweet couple...we are so excited for you and the new life you are starting together! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day. :)
