The Wedding Day:

Jake and Amy got married this past weekend at Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville, TN. This sweet couple had a beautiful wedding day surrounded by friends and family from all over.

As Amy and the ladies got ready in the bridal suite, Jake and the guys were dressed and ready to go. They waited out in the foyer where Jake found a piano and started playing and singing. Amy lit up when she heard him through the closed door and slipped on her gown with the help of her mom and bridesmaids. She wore a beautiful lace wedding dress paired with a veil and her grandmother’s earrings. The bridesmaids wore teal dresses and the guys wore matching grey suits styled with floral pocket squares and bow ties.

Jake and Amy chose to have a first look for their wedding day. They shared this special moment inside one of the archways at Scarritt Bennett. This is such a beautiful venue with amazing architecture, so I loved that we were able to highlight some of those features in their photos! The sweet couple couldn’t help but smile when they saw each other, and they both teared up. I loved getting to witness this first look and the embraces that followed!

The Wightman chapel was decorated elegantly and looked so classy! The pews were wrapped with tulle and baby’s breath, and the altar was lined with candles and a floral arrangement. The sweet couple chose to light a unity candle during their ceremony to represent their marriage. It was a beautiful celebration to witness, and both Jake and Amy had the biggest smiles. Right after the ceremony, Amy made her way up to the balcony of the chapel for the classic Scarritt Bennett bride window picture! (EEEEK! My favorite shot!)

Before heading to the reception, Amy traded her veil for a flower crown, which completely changed her bridal look! We took a few more portraits with the floral headpiece under a tree that Jake and Amy sit by when they visit the venue. We lucked out and had beautiful lighting for these couple shots!

Jake and Amy enjoyed dancing, cake cutting, and toasts at their reception. Their family and friends had fun dancing, clinking their glasses for the newlyweds to share a kiss, and cheering “Jake and Amy Forever!” We wrapped up the night with a bird seed send off in front of the door to the chapel. Jake and Amy ran past their guests as bird seed was thrown! I love how fun those wedding exit pictures are!
