You are going to fall in love with this amazing styled shoot turned surprise vow renewal from Jessie Holloway and Wedding 101 Nashville. The bride thought she was just modeling for a shoot, little did she know that her husband had been working with a whole team of vendors to help give her the wedding she had dreamed of. This is such an adorable couple and story, and along with the amazing details, makes it a shoot not to miss!

Months ago Matthew and I were asked to model for a Wedding 101 {Nashville, TN} Bohemian styled wedding photo shoot. When Jennifer asked me if we would be interested in modeling for a boho themed wedding I was ecstatic. What an awesome opportunity it was to play bride for a day. Matt told me once (after I mentioned how lucky we were for being able to model for the themed shoot) “I am so sorry I will never be able to give you the wedding of your dreams, but I am thankful we have been given this opportunity, God has really blessed us” little did I know, how truly blessed Matt and are.

Matt and I showed up at the gorgeous The Wrens Nest- An Elegant Rustic Venue to get ready for the shoot. Hair and makeup is finished and then I’m told we were going to go shoot the “First Look Photos”. As I walk up to Matt surrounded by a gorgeous forest on a blue skied perfect day, I begin to cry. Seeing my husband with his back toward me in his uniform made it so real. He was going to see me in a real wedding gown for the first time. As I quietly walked up to him, and he turned around, the look on his face, was absolutely priceless. Before I even have a chance to tell him how handsome he looked, he looked me straight in the eyes and said “This isn’t just a styled shoot today, this is for real, we are renewing our vows”. Again I begin to sob. For months Matt and many incredibly talented professionals planned my dream wedding without me ever knowing.
It was not in my wildest dreams that Matt and I would ever have a real wedding, the walking down the isle with my Dad by my side, first look, real wedding dress kind of real. I was blessed enough to be married to the man of my dreams, and my dreams of having a big wedding were just mere distant thoughts that began to fade as my business grew, talk of babies came around and Matt got busier with work.

I walked down the isle to my groom with my arm linked in my Dads while “She’s like Texas” played over the speaker, and I married my best friend again, making September 22nd, one of the best days of my life. Our renewal complete with gorgeous flowers, reception, first dance, beautiful cake, Jessie Holloway Photography, videographers and everything.

I cannot thank everyone that was there, and made yesterday possible. The amazing vendors DONATED their time and talent to make my dreams come true. And thank you to my amazing husband for having the biggest heart of anyone I know, and helping plan the dream wedding that “you could never give me”. You’re the best thing to ever happen to me, and for that, I am blessed beyond words.
