wedding | joanna + steven | historic cedarwood | nashville, tn

So my little sis-in-law got married! I watched her grow up from a shy, skirt-twirling 4-year-old to a beautiful bride. :) What a day!!! The wedding took place at the charming historic Cedarwood in Nashville, TN. And a dream to photograph--a wedding with SO many charming details. There were some seriously gorgeous inspiration for an intimate country celebration to photograph. I was DYING over the darling details, the vintage truck and the bicycle built for two, the red barn with lighting and frames--so many artistic little touches. Love it!!! And nothing like crisp cool cucumber water to refresh yourself on a warm, VERY humid summer wedding night in the south. But enough about the venue, as you will see from the photos, this wedding totally embraces the colorful glow of a couple in love. Do you see how the groom, Steven, smiles at Joanna and how the dimple on Joanna's upper right cheek appears when she looks at Steven. :) Love you guys! xoxo, Stacey 

P.S. Did I mention that my boys were 2 of the 3 ring-barers and my hubby, Joanna's brother Erik, was my second shooter. :) I have never worn so many hats at one time--wedding photographer, mom, wife, sister and daughter-in-law. Crazy fun! (Thanks Cousin Ashley for helping out with the boys!) At one point during the ceremony, I hear, "MOM? MOM? We're hot!" Followed by, "Mom? Mom? We're bored. When is this going to be over?" Love my boys! By the way, aren't they handsome in the tuxes?! Ok...so I am a little bias. :)

Joanna and Steven elected to do a "First Look" where they see each other before the wedding. :)  I LOVE Steven's expressions on his face in anticipation of seeing his bride for the first time.

 

Erik captured this photo of Joanna and Steven's first kiss. I love the angle he got! :)

 

I LOVE this photo of my boys!
