I have found the sweetest friends in my fellow wedding planners.  Meredith and Austin have been saving graces and incredible resources.  Although we each work in different areas of Nashville, these ladies have been crucial to my sanity.  Mer sent this gorgeous bride my way.

Julie was the definition of “blushing bride” (how GORGEOUS is she?!): she smiled ALL afternoon, chatted excitedly with her bridesmaids and took a moment to say a prayer with her older sister and her mother. Preston was every bit the nervous groom: he spent 20 minutes trying to tie his tie JUST RIGHT and cracked jokes with his best friends as they waited for the bride and groom’s ‘first look’.

Prepare for “gorgeous photo overload”! These photographs were shared by Tyler Andrews Photography…seriously some of my favorite photos EVER.

Julie and Preston’s first look was perfect!  Alone, with only their photography team, these two savored a few sweet moments together and took some STUNNING photographs!

Favorite. Photograph. Ever.

Julie and Preston wanted a classic, very elegant wedding with timeless details.  From traditional flowers and timeless colors, this wedding was not trendy, nor will it scream *2013* 30 years from now…which is ABSOLUTELY my favorite style!

Love the styling of these non-traditional bridal party photos.

The ceremony was simple and heartfelt. The altar was beautifully decorated by the groom’s mom and candlelight was radiant in the chapel.

 Tied in burlap and accented with her grandmother’s brooch, Julie’s bouquet I created was simple but very elegant and did not take away from her gorgeous gown.
