I have so many good things to say about Laura and Mark's wedding last month at The Wren's Nest in Murfreesboro. Seriously, the number of times I thought to myself while photographing this wedding, "This is why I do what I do," was unreal. I wanted to cry tears of happiness while capturing their special day because it was so breathtakingly beautiful. Not only was it incredibly aesthetically pleasing thanks to the awesome work of the ladies at Modern Vintage Events, but the events that look place and the people involved were really what made this wedding so special to me. Laura and Mark are some of the kindest people I have met; they are so sweet and they were both beaming on their wedding day. Their love for each other was so strong that everyone around could feel it. From Laura's eager anticipation before the first look, Mark's giddy laughter after seeing his beautiful bride for the first time, to the quiet kiss on the forehead during times of transition, I was struck by all the love shared between these two. One of my favorite parts about this wedding though, was the receiving line they had after the ceremony. I loved capturing the reactions of friends and family as they excitedly greeted the bride and groom. I probably looked so silly because all the love and excitement rubbed off on me and I was smiling ear to ear while photographing these interactions. I could say so much more about this day, but I will let the photos speak for themselves. I truly wish you two the best on your marriage, thank you for inviting me into your special day.
