Webb and Heather got married last weekend on their family farm in College Grove, TN. When I arrived to Burch Farm, Webb and his wedding crew headed out to the ceremony site with a shovel and glasses in hand. The couple had buried a bottle of whiskey in the ground a month before the wedding in hopes of clear skies. This Southern tradition worked wonders for them and we ended up with a gorgeous Spring day! Webb dug up the bottle of whiskey and shared a drink with his grooms people before meeting Heather for their first look in their driveway under a canopy of trees.
As a Nashville wedding photographer I see a lot of creative and sweet, sentimental wedding details that help tell a couple’s story. Webb and Heather’s wedding was no different, and their day was beautifully filled with family history, handmade wedding décor and personal touches. They got married on their family property. The ceremony site was set up in a field on their farm, and they hand built the wooden benches and arbor for their wedding. Webb also built the bridge that Heather walked down with her father.
My favorite part of Webb and Heather’s wedding was hands down the goat ring bearer! He walked down the aisle and stood up front with the rest of the wedding party. (Plus he even posed for some group photos after the ceremony.) Some of the other details I loved were the custom-designed wedding bandanas from Jenni Earle and the succulent wedding cake and cupcakes.
The most special thing about this wedding might be the fact that every picture was taken in a place that’s near and dear to the couple. From the first look in the private driveway, the reception in Webb’s car shop, and the golden hour portraits by the silos… There’s nothing like marrying the love of your life at the place you call home.
