Hey all you 2012 brides: Whatcha doing this weekend? I’m going to go ahead and guess that crossing off the planning to-do list is somewhere on the agenda. That’s awesome! I do love to watch you ladies bring together such awesome, romantic events. It’s so cool to get to see it all come together.
I wanted to bring you all a little white gown love to get those planning ideas a-churnin’. Plus, it’s just fun to see bridal pictures and think about your own day that’s coming around the corner! Soon, you’ll be rocking that gown of yours and sashaying down the aisle. Pretty girl ; )
With all the invites, and vendor meetings, and timeline scheduling.. it seems like the madness may never stop. No worries, my love! Wedding planning is a horse of a different color, and it’s quite the endeavor to take on. But what were you supposed to say?! I mean, he was on his knee looking at you like that.. I think YES!! is the only answer that came to mind haha.. which is so amazing. How great it feels to be starting a new chapter in your life and on the arm of that hunk of yours at that.. what could be better?….Cake tastings… Grr… my stomach is rumbling. Forgive my momentary brain lapse. Nothing could be better than that I mean!! I’m breaking for a grilled cheese…..
Annnnnd I’m back.
So let’s talk about this stormy Rock the Dress session that simply stole my heart. Autumn is married to a high school friend of mine (What’s up, Josh!). He played high school basketball with my man, BD, who was in the wedding so I got to go to their wedding, too.
They were married at Aerial in downtown Nashville. When I say downtown, I mean DOWNTOWN… like look right up at the Bell South Tower downtown. Needless to say, I was drooling all over myself at the wedding fabulousness that was their day. Trust me, even though I didn’t have my camera, I took enough mental pictures to make a small album for these two. I just couldn’t get enough of it.
When we talked about doing a Rock the Dress for Autumn after her wedding day, I was super stoked. Why? Because when brides ask me to shoot these after their day is over, it means we can get so super fun with posing and the creativity of it all. Most brides are okay with getting their dress a little dirty for the sake of photos. I mean, the ceremony is already over.. might as well rock that thing! And she did : )
We met up in Manchester, TN. If you know me, I’m a solid festival goer and I love barefeet and dancing on dirt paths to watch the music. I loved going to Bonnaroo these past few years, and getting to be in Manchester again was cool. Not only because of all the fond memories, but because I saw these awesome concrete structures on the way into the festival this summer and swore I’d come back for pictures one day. And I did : )
Life kind of rocks when it comes full circle.
