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.

We are starting the week off with this sweet West Virginia wedding from Lauren Love Photography. Filled with tons of handmade and DIY details, there is so much to love with this one. The bride and her family made the bouquets, even growing their own succulents over the summer.

We chose the fall for our wedding, because we both love the natural beauty of the season. Also, who doesn’t love the crisp fall air?! With that in mind, we wanted a venue that allowed the season to be enjoyed, so we chose an outdoor venue on a blueberry farm in the West Virginia countryside. We tried to stick with natural and earthy choices in color, decorations, and style. The feel we wanted to achieve was casual elegance. We wanted the day to be classy and beautiful, coinciding with the comfort and relaxation of a fall day on the farm.

We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of the two of us – who we are and what we enjoy in life. Thankfully, Seth and I are a lot alike so picking elements that represented us both came easily. We also wanted our wedding to reflect our faith, which was a key element of what brought our lives together and what we believe will sustain our marriage through all that lies ahead of us. We wanted God to be praised and honored by our day of celebration, so we tried to keep that in mind during planning, to give us direction on priorities and to help keep us away from stress as well!

Seth used his woodsman skills to make the arbor we stood under during the ceremony. My uncle, mom, and I spent an evening during the summer cutting down a tree, which we used to make wooden centerpieces for the tables at the reception. We wanted our wedding to feel intimate, which for us included putting our own touch on the details.

We attempted to do as much for the wedding as we could ourselves. Our moms helped out a lot where that was concerned. My mom made all the floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres for the wedding, which included a summer of us gardening and growing dozens of succulents and other various plants in preparation for the big day. My mom also made the wedding cakes ranging from classic almond cakes with buttercream frosting to pumpkin rolls and red velvet cakes. Seth’s mom made a great german chocolate cake for the wedding as well.

Obviously, the best part of our day was getting to unite our love and lives in marriage, but such a precious occasion was made so much sweeter by getting to share the day with family and friends who have helped mold our lives and lead us to where we were that day. Our best man and maids of honor speeches were a highlight of the day too. We really appreciated being supported, encouraged, and humored by our loved ones during that time!

Being a native Floridian, I am very familiar to beach weddings. They can very quickly become cheesy with overdone details. Not so with this gorgeous shoot from Amanda Hedgepeth. This romantic take on a beach wedding has everything you love about the seaside, but with an elegant and timeless feel.

There is something naturally enchanting and magical about the ocean, and we wanted to capture that in our Sea Mist Romance shoot. We were so excited to get to work on styling this beauty when Michelle of One Sweet Day in May approached us to put together a soft, ethereal and elegant look that could embody, as she put it, “a real life Little Mermaid wedding!” With touches of whimsy, lots of beach-combed details and nods to everyone’s favorite Disney movie, we created a palette of varying shades of misty and deep ocean blues, soft oyster grays and mixed metals and aimed to highlight the natural beauty of the beach.
