I don’t typically shoot weddings but when my friend Steadman was telling me about his amazing bride, and the stunning wedding they were planning in South Georgia, I new I had come out of retirement for this one!
Starting out the day getting a birdie on the last hole of golf with his Groomsmen and winning the round by a landslide, Steadman was presented with a gift from April, his bride to be. To his surprise he opened up a package revealing the exact Rolex watch of his dreams!
The very watch that he had on his vision board to save up for to purchase someday in the future. April started it off perfectly with a gift that couldn’t have possibly been more thoughtly planned out.
That is exactly how the wedding went. Every detail from the flowers, to the dresses to the scheduled flow of the day was so well thought through that it all was pulled off without a hitch.
April and Steadman said their vows at the illustrious Calloway Gardens… which might as well as been the Garden of Eden!
Actually they didn’t just say their vows, instead of the typical groom who studders “I Do”, Steadman practically startled the entire ceremony out of their seats when he screamed at the top of his lungs… “I WILLLLL!!!”
Perhaps one of the most special things about the wedding is that April’s parents were married at the same chapel in Calloway Gardens where we took many of the photos.
The rain eventually started falling but the groom carefully found a window of time between rain showers to have the ceremony outside on a serene bridge.
The timing couldn’t have been more perfect because just moments after the couple exited the rain starting pouring as the guests rushed off the bridge.
Followed by a stunning reception, dance party and heart-wrenching speeches. I’m honored to have been a part of their union.

Have you ever wondered what a dream fairytale wedding would entail? Well wonder no more! Thanks to the creative design geniuses & event planners of Social Butterflies, Stephanie & William’s elegant southern wedding was the posh event of the season! Their storybook wedding was nestled in the castle-like Foley residence hosting their sunny garden estate ceremony and exclusive lavish reception ball (aka dance party of the year)! Stephanie was a stunning princess bride adorned in a gorgeous Vera Wang wedding gown. After all, this was the day she was marrying her dashing prince William. What a sweet joy it was to see their hearts elated at every swooning glance on their special day. Cheerful laughs, affectionate tears and merry hearts by family and friends enveloped their wedding. Everyone couldn’t help but keep the dance floor hopping with the insane performing talents of the Libido band. The night ended with nothing short of a grand bang. Fireworks, confetti, lasers and a classic Rolls Royce getaway carriage escorted them into their happily ever after!

Kimberly & Barrett. What a fabulous fun loving couple!! These two make us smile. We love how they enjoy the sweet simplicity of being with each other, laughing and playing…whether cozy at home or soaking in the warm sunshine on a boat…they know how to make the most of their time together. Kimberly is a stunning beauty and also a killer chef. We’ve heard we need to get to Memphis to try her cooking goodness! So thrilled she found her prince in Barrett. We had a ball getting to capture their engagement photos in the gorgeous Nashville countryside. So cannot wait to shoot their wedding in November!
What a treat it was to capture the beautiful fairytale wedding of dear friends Melissa & Clint!! This wedding was extra special to us because Melissa and her sweet family have become family to us here in Nashville. We were stunned by all of the creativity & beauty that oozed from every elegant detail that Melissa perfectly put together herself. She is seriously one of the most creative people you will ever meet…and not to mention incredibly GORGEOUS with such a giving heart! From her handcrafted bouquet to the ceremony design to the guest book, this was one of the most amazing DIY weddings you will ever feast your eyes on. We couldn’t help but choke up as we watched Melissa marry the man of her dreams, Clint Perry. We are so happy for them and their families as tears of joy and smiles of delight enveloped their special day. Melissa and Clint are a brilliant couple and we’re stoked for their new journey as a Mr. & Mrs. and their next venture opening a boutique flower shop, Pistils & Petals, coming to Nashville soon! You’ll be sure to find more of Melissa’s crazy talented touches here as well.:)
