Raeanna and Nic had a long, winding journey to love. They first met in 2012 at LifeChurch. In 2017, Nic proposed on the sidewalk right outside the church doors. All those years later, their love story came full circle - their little girl, Rayleigh, even held the ring for Nic as he proposed!

Raeanna and Nic wanted their wedding to feel southern and classic, with a French flair. They opted for a simple outdoor ceremony at Gunn Farm, complete with stunning florals and sunny skies. The ceremony was filled with special moments, with the couple’s faith at the center and their friends and family surrounding them. The reception was nothing short of a blast - cold beer, delicious donuts, and great tunes had the whole room dancing the night away!

Looking back on their wedding day, Raeanna and Nic remember the little moments that made them laugh - and most importantly, that their little girl could be involved in every aspect of their wedding. That day will always hold precious memories for their little family of three.

We actually met Raeanna years ago, when she was a bridesmaid in another wedding we shot - so we were honored to capture her wedding day. Working with this couple was easy and fun, and we’re wishing them all the best in their marriage for years to come!

Nashville Wedding Video : Jenna + Shane

Screen Shot 2018-12-03 at 9.29.01 AM.png

Jenna and Shane met during their freshman year of college at Vanderbilt. There was an immediate spark, but it took another year and a James Bond-themed party to officially bring them together. Shane went as Jenna’s date, and they never looked back!

One Saturday morning, Shane and Jenna were headed to brunch downtown, and when Jenna got a text that their friends were running late, Shane suggested they walk along the river's edge to pass the time. To Jenna’s shock, he got down on one knee with the Nashville skyline in the background and popped the question! Turns out, their friends weren’t late - they were part of the scheme. Incognito photographers were even nearby to capture the moment. After Jenna said yes, Shane brought her to the George Jones Museum rooftop, where she found family and friends waiting with champagne to celebrate!

Screen Shot 2018-12-03 at 9.30.00 AM.png

The happy couple wanted a classically elegant wedding, filled with all the details that make Nashville unique. From riding a trolley with their entire bridal party to hosting the reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame, the day was filled with Music City moments.

Looking back on their special day, Jenna and Shane really remember the “firsts” best - their first look, first dance, and family dances are all highlights of their joyous celebration. They also loved all the fun moments, including a football garter toss and late night hot dogs! We had a blast shooting this Nashville wedding, and we’re so glad Jenna and Shane love their wedding video! We wish this couple many more adventures around their city in the years to come.

Nashville Wedding Video : LeeAnna + Elias

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 5.21.54 PM.png

Leeanna and Elias actually met on Instagram - a true modern day romance. They connected online through mutual friends, and soon, Elias was making a road trip to meet Leeanna in person. They hit it off immediately, and months of dating via FaceTime eventually led to Elias moving to be near his lady. Before a concert one evening, he asked Leeanna if she’d like to take a walk around the park. To her shock, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! After an elated “yes,” they continued down the path, where her family was waiting to celebrate.

Elias and Leeanna wanted a timeless southern wedding, so they chose the historic Potter Farm as the perfect venue for their special day. Every moment was filled with faith and family, and even included special moments to honor Leeanna’s dad, who had passed away shortly after the couple got engaged. Looking back on their day, the couple especially treasures their first look together, having a moment to take in all their emotions, and the thoughtful moments their families created for them throughout the day. The ceremony was beautiful, and the reception was a joyous celebration. We’re so glad we got to shoot this special day for Elias and Leeanna, and they’re excited to have those priceless moments captured to share with their family down the road. We wish them a long and happy life together!

Nashville Wedding Video : Meg + Nate

Meg and Nate met in graduate school at the University of Tennessee. Near the end of a spring semester, some mutual friends of theirs threw a Cinco de Mayo party. They met over guac and quest (the perfect way to meet someone, really), and they connected right away. Nate asked Meg on a date the very next day. After a long hike in Knoxville, they knew this relationship was a good one - and they’ve been together ever since.

Screen Shot 2018-11-16 at 10.40.10 AM.png

On Christmas Eve, Meg and Nate went on a morning hike at Radnor Lake in Nashville with his family. It’s one of their family’s favorite traditions, and she was excited to join in, but she never could’ve guessed what was about to happen! As they walked by the beautiful lake, Nate pulled out a ring and dropped to one knee - and Meg said yes to the best Christmas present ever.

The happy couple chose Mint Springs Farm for their special day, knowing that it would give them that timeless, classic feel while still bringing in casual outdoor elements that they both love. They knew they wanted to get married outside, surrounded by lush greenery. They loved every moment of their wedding day, and they were overwhelmed with joy and gratitude at the crowd who was there just to honor them and celebrate their marriage. But looking back, their favorite moments were actually those away from the crowd. Sneaking away between the ceremony and reception to take photos and just be with one another for a few minutes is something they’ll never forget.

Nashville Wedding Video : Macy + Jared

Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 9.39.25 AM.png

Macy and Jared met in 2012 at Tennessee Tech. Jared’s fraternity needed help putting together a cheerleading routine for a homecoming pep rally, so as a cheerleader, Macy and some friends volunteered to help. All it took was one cheer routine. Macy and Jared hit it off, and they never looked back.

Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 9.37.02 AM.png
Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 9.33.57 AM.png

Last year, Macy headed to visit Jared for his medical school’s white coat ceremony in Memphis, and on that visit, they began to talk about their future. Macy mentioned that she didn’t want an elaborate proposal - no scavenger hunts, poems, or friends hiding in the bushes. Little did she know, Jared had a ring in his pocket as she was speaking! As they headed to dinner that evening, Jared popped the question, simply and beautifully, just like she’d imagined. Of course, she said yes!

Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 9.34.28 AM.png
Screen Shot 2018-11-07 at 9.40.24 AM.png

Macy and Jared chose Duck Pond Manor for its classic southern charm, and June 16th turned out to be a gorgeous summer day. Every detail of the wedding was a snapshot of a Tennessee summer, from the berry tones and greenery to the BBQ dinner. As they think about their wedding day now, their favorite moments were the quiet corners in the midst of wedding craziness. Their first look was a special moment for the two of them to share before walking down the aisle, and Macy’s grandfather stopped by before the ceremony to share some wisdom from his own 62 years of marriage. We loved capturing this gorgeous summer wedding for this sweet couple, and we wish them all the best in their new life together.

Nashville Wedding Video : Katherine + Carter

Screen Shot 2018-10-12 at 2.53.29 PM.png

Katherine and Carter met in high school, and knew right away that they wanted to spend their lives side by side. They dated through high school, college, and grad school! On a trip home to Charleston, where Carter is from, he surprised Katherine with a romantic walk down the waterfront park. As she took in the rolling waves and the beautiful sights, he turned around and got down on one knee. She’d always known that when this moment came, she would say yes to Carter - and that’s exactly what she did!

Their Nashville wedding on June 9th was beautifully understated, full of gorgeous neutrals and classic details. Their day was filled with joy from start to finish. Even before the wedding, their bridesmaids and groomsmen were a blast, laughing and celebrating what was ahead. Looking back on their day, their favorite moments were on the dance floor, knowing that they could dance the night away with all of their favorite people before heading off to a brand new life together.

Nashville Wedding Video : Carly + Wilson

Screen Shot 2018-10-09 at 10.48.27 AM.png

When Carly first moved to Nashville, she headed to a party at a friend’s house, hoping to meet some new friends. She tried to arrive fashionably late, but ended up being one of the first party guests, along with a guy named Wilson. They began chatting - and they never stopped. Wilson called her the next week to ask her on a date, and they connected right off the bat.

One morning, Carly headed to the barn to ride her horse, knowing she was going to spend the day with Wilson later on. When she returned home, a picture and a poem were hanging on her front door - the start of a scavenger hunt! The clues led her all around Nashville, ending in Sevier Park with Wilson down on one knee. As soon as Carly said yes, their parents joined them in the park for a spontaneous celebration!

Carly and Wilson’s wedding was bright, summery, and fun. They wanted to have an elegant but casual celebration with lots of personal touches, including horse shoes as escort cards and custom cocktails named after their alma maters. After a beautiful ceremony with handwritten vows and gorgeous flowers, the happy couple headed to the dance floor, where they stayed all night long!

Nashville Wedding Video : Tayler + Max

Screen Shot 2018-10-04 at 10.15.57 AM.png

Tayler and Max met in middle school, started dating in high school, and never looked back. They just knew they’d found the one. After nine years together, the couple decided to just do small gifts for Christmas. Tayler got Max a Tennessee Vols ornament. Max got Tayler an engagement ring. It have have technically fit the bill for a “small gift”, but it was the very best gift of her life!

When Tayler and Max tied the knot on May 19th, they chose Graystone Quarry as the perfect venue - elegant, but easygoing, with beautiful views to boot. The day was filled with love from start to finish. When the couple looks back on their perfect day, they remember so many perfect moments - sweet ones, like Tayler’s dad when he saw his girl in her wedding dress for the first time, and funny ones, like the dance moves some of their guests busted out at the reception. They thought they’d be nervous on the big day, but they looked at each other as the ceremony closed and whispered, “That was perfect.”

Nashville Wedding Video : Sara + Jonathan

Screen Shot 2018-08-27 at 7.51.19 PM.png

Sara and Jonathan met in the second grade, and spent their school years as friends. But a few years after college, Sarah reconnected with Jonathan while on a trip to Nashville, and everything changed. The moment he picked her up from the airport, she felt the sparks fly. Looking back on it now, she says she knew he was the one right then. And she was right! Jonathan proposed on the beautiful beaches of Destin at sunset, and he even arranged for her family to be there to witness the moment she said yes.

Screen Shot 2018-08-27 at 7.50.59 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-08-28 at 10.39.17 AM.png

March 3rd was a beautiful day for Jonathan and Sara to begin their new lives together at Mint Springs Farm. The weather was every bit as gorgeous as the venue, and family and friends gathered to watch the happy couple say, “I do.” Sara and Jonathan wanted their wedding to be simple, cozy, and full of love - and it was! Rather than packing each moment full of activities, they planned a day that would allow them to soak in every minute and every emotion.

Screen Shot 2018-08-27 at 7.53.11 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-08-28 at 10.38.06 AM.png

When the barn doors opened and Sara began to walk down the aisle towards Jonathan, the couple remembers feeling surrounded by love and peace. They had each found their person, and getting to declare that love to one another in front of family and friends was a moment they’ll never forget. Jonathan says, “When they announced us as husband and wife, I just couldn’t stop smiling, soaking in the moment that was finally here.” When they think about their wedding day, Jonathan and Sara remember not only the love they have for each other, but the love that their community poured out on them throughout the day.

Nashville Wedding Video : Brooke + Cannon

 matt g video, nashville wedding videographer, nashville wedding 

Brooke and Cannon met at a fundraising auction in 2015. As soon as Brooke walked in, Cannon knew he’d found a special woman. As the prizes were being announced, he leaned over and said, "If I win this brunch, will you go with me?" She responded, “Sure.”Cannon didn’t win the brunch - but ultimately, he won the girl. The couple started dating a few weeks later, and the rest was history.

Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.59.55 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-08-19 at 5.11.00 PM.png

Sixteen months later, Brooke and Jason headed to “meet some friends” near the monuments in DC. But to Brooke’s surprise, there were no friends at their meeting spot - just Cannon, one one knee, with a ring. She said yes, of course! The happy couple headed to The Dubliner, where friends and family were waiting with open arms and plenty of champagne!

When Brooke and Cannon were searching for the best location for their dream wedding, Nashville, with all its energy and heart, was a perfect fit. The Cordelle’s beautiful wood floors, aged original brick, iron elements, and southern style deck set the perfect stage for a November ceremony. The couple added a personal touch to every aspect of the day - from candlelight and greenery to incredible food and cornhole on the lawn. They even ordered late night pizza during the reception!

Screen Shot 2018-08-19 at 5.15.13 PM.png

Looking back on their special day, Brooke and Cannon remember the entire day exploding with the support and kindness of all those they love most - and their love for each other deepening with every moment. They remember the morning storms clearing for the perfect outdoor afternoon wedding, and savoring every moment they got to be together, just the two of them, in the midst of their crazy and wonderful day. Brooke and Cannon are so much fun, and we loved getting to capture their wedding day. Cheers to the happy couple! We wish you many more years of adventures to come.

Nashville Wedding Video : Emery + Marshall

 nashville wedding video, matt g video, nashville wedding videographer 
Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.39.37 PM.png

Don’t be surprised if Emery and Marshall’s story becomes the next great romantic comedy in Hollywood. It goes a little something like this: Girl moves to a new town, doesn’t know a soul, and runs out of gas. She heads to the nearby dog park with her goldendoodle, hoping to find a friendly face. Girl meets boy, who happens to have a pup, too, of course. The dogs become best friends - and the people? They fall in love.

Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.41.40 PM.png

Marshall and Emery’s love story only grew as time passed, and when Emery had to head to a new city for six weeks for job training, Marshall planned a special date before she left town. On the date, he seemed nervous. Emery didn’t know what was going on with him - that is, not until he got on one knee in the Oklahoma City botanical gardens and asked her to marry him. She said yes, of course, and they headed to the restaurant, where both of their families were waiting!

Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 7.41.21 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 8.02.27 PM.png

Emery and Marshall chose her grandparents’ home for their wedding day, transforming their backyard into a stunning secret garden. It was the perfect backdrop to an intimate ceremony with those the couple cherishes most. Emery loves remembering Marshall’s face as she walked down the aisle, and all the butterflies hidden in the wedding day decor - special nods to her father, who had passed away a few years prior. Emery’s mom even surprised the couple with their favorite painter at the reception, who painted the gorgeous scene as they swayed to their first dance. Working with Emery and Marshall was such a dream - even though they said they barely noticed our cameras all day! - and we’re excited to give them a video that will help them relive their magical day forever.

Nashville Wedding Video : Kelsey + Lin

Kelsey and Lin grew up in the South, but met after finding their way to New York City. They quickly discovered they had mutual friends, mutual likes, and similar upbringings - and they never looked back! On their two year anniversary, Lin surprised Kelsey with an evening out at the Marlton Hotel. He got down on one knee, and she said yes as downtown Manhattan sparkled in the background. Even better - Lin surprised Kelsey by flying in her mom and sisters and inviting all of their friends to celebrate their engagement right there in the hotel!

When Kelsey and Lin tied the knot on April 14, 2018, they wanted their day to feel festive and free, with an air of unstructured romance. They planned a day that would feel “thrown together” in the very best of ways, in the beautiful rustic setting that Cedarwood Weddings provides. Looking back on their wedding, Kelsey and Lin cherish their first look the most. Having a quiet moment to appreciate the best day of their lives together is a memory they’ll always hold close. Kelsey also loved Lin’s surprise musical number - singing “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” while playing the keyboard!

Kelsey and Lin’s wedding was gorgeous - from the cakes to the flowers to the joy of every single person in the room. We’re so grateful we got to play a part in their wedding, and we’re even happier to hear that they plan to watch their wedding video over and over in the years to come.

Nashville Wedding Video : Cecilia + Ronnie

Cecilia and Ronnie met at Gold’s Gym and quickly fell for each other. After two years together, the couple took a trip out to Denver to visit Cecilia’s sister. Since it was her family trip, she didn’t suspect much - but after a beautiful hike up St. Mary’s Glacier, she turned around to see Ronnie down on one knee. She was surprised, but of course, she said, “Yes!”

At East Ivy Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee, Cecilia and Ronnie tied the knot in a whimsical, elegant outdoor ceremony. Looking back on March 31, 2018, they remember their vows as the sweetest moment of their perfect day - filled with emotion as they got to make their commitment to one another with the support of so many people they both love.

Screen Shot 2018-07-02 at 6.39.09 PM.png

They danced the night away in a garden sprinkled with hanging lanterns - a perfect end to a beautiful day. We really loved being a part of this one, and we’re wishing the happy couple a lifetime of love!

Nashville Wedding Video : Kaitlyn + Brent

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 1.26.05 PM.png

Many things tie Kaitlyn and Brent together as husband and wife. One of the most important? They’re both Gator fans. The couple met - and fell for each other - at the University of Florida, and they’ve been on each other’s team ever since. Six years, an MBA, a medical school degree, and a rescued pup later, they tied the knot.

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 1.23.14 PM.png

Kaitlyn and Brent’s wedding on December 16, 2017 was filled with all the things that they love most - family, friends, and Florida. Kaitlin wore three pieces of jewelry for her walk down the aisle - a pearl bracelet borrowed from her mom, a new bracelet from Brent’s mom, and earrings from Brent - his before-the-ceremony gift to her. Their dog, Dixie, was walked down the aisle by Kaitlin’s cousin, and her great aunt and uncle sang a beautiful rendition of How Great Thou Art. One of the most special guests in attendance: Kaitlyn’s brother, who only got leave from the navy the day before the ceremony.

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 1.29.03 PM.png

After the couple said, “I do,” they moved the party to the dance floor - with a Florida Gator symbol on it, of course - and danced the night away with family and friends. We loved being able to capture Brent and Kaitlyn’s special day, and we wish them (and Dixie!) all the happiness in the world.

Nashville Wedding Video : Graham + Will

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.28.45 PM.png

When Will & Graham met at a mutual friend’s birthday party in December 2015, they knew something special was about to unfold. The next week, she messaged him on Instagram. The next month, he planned their first date. And the rest was history. Will proposed on Rosemary Beach, and they began planning the best day of their lives.

September 17 was the perfect day for a wedding at Graystone Quarry in Franklin, TN. Friends and family came from near & far, ready to celebrate two people who are clearly loved by so many. The ceremony beautifully honored Will & Graham’s faith, and the reception was equal parts meaningful words, killer dance moves, and delicious food from Chef Penelope and Dessert Designs by Leland Riggan.

Every moment of Will & Graham’s wedding day was filled to the brim with fun and laughter. They were at ease, enjoying even the craziest moments of the day - because they knew at the end of the evening, they would get to drive off with their very best friend for the rest of their lives. When the doors opened and Graham walked down the aisle, Will remembers that he’d never felt more clearly that he was right where he was always meant to be. Will & Graham say they are who they are because of the people who loved them well throughout their lives, and to share their wedding day with so many of them will always be a memory they treasure. Will & Graham were a dream - Will even offered us a rare bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year as a generous thank you! We were thrilled to work with them on their wedding day, capturing the heart of their wedding and every beautiful detail of the day they call “the beginning of forever.”

Nashville Wedding Video : Stephanie + Steven

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.30.31 PM.png

Stephanie and Steven have a rare kind of love - the kind that they both knew would last from the moment they met. From their first day together at a music convention, they were inseparable, and their love only great deeper over time. Steven proposed at the gorgeous Blue Lagoon in Iceland, and the couple set about planning the best day of their lives.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.33.11 PM.png

Above all else, Steven and Stephanie wanted to make their wedding their own, filled with unique details that would leave every guest feeling as though they knew the couple better than when they arrived. They chose not to have a wedding party, but instead, focused on making each guest feel like a special part of their day. CJ’s off the Square was the perfect location for a small but stunning wedding, and the ceremony was filled with those they loved. Stephanie’s brother officiated the wedding, and they selected nieces and nephews - and their puppy, of course - as flower girls and ring bearers.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.29.41 PM.png

Steven and Stephanie wanted their wedding day to feel light, airy, and rustic - but most of all, unique. They brought in many elements of their music careers, like crafting vintage hatch show print invitations and writing their own wedding songs. Looking back, the couple’s favorite moment from their special day was the first look. When they saw each other in that quiet moment, all the stress melted away and, in their words, “everything felt right in the world - it was perfect.” The entire day was filled with love and genuine happiness, and we’re so glad we got to play a part in the best day of Stephanie and Stephen’s lives.

Nashville Wedding Video : Starr + Alan

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.34.01 PM.png

Starr & Alan met at Auburn University, but back then, they had no idea a love story would unfold. It was fitting that Auburn brought them back together, though - they reconnected at a football watch party in Houston years later. We don’t know if Auburn won that game, but Starr and Alan sure did. They made plans for their first date the very next day, and they’ve been together ever since.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.34.55 PM.png

Three years into their relationship, Alan joined Starr’s family on a trip to Mexico. After a long day spear fishing, Starr decided on a low-key date night in the city, but Alan had other plans. A sunset stroll on the beach led them to a lighthouse in the middle of town, where Alan got on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, she said yes.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.35.26 PM.png

This sweet couple tied the knot in Nashville, TN on November 18, 2017. They chose the lovely Bridge Building as their venue, transforming it into an indoor garden that highlighted the Nashville skyline. Big Events captured this perfectly by using greenery, candlelight and elegant decor to set the tone for the evening. The weather was moody, but the atmosphere was buzzing with energy through every joyful moment of Alan and Starr’s wedding - there was plenty of champagne popping and shoes dancing the night away. It’s so clear to see that this couple is deeply in love - with great senses of humor and gracious spirits to boot! Watching the joy these two had as they celebrated with friends and family was something special. We loved personalizing their story and memorializing moments from their perfect day that they can keep for years and years to come.

Nashville Wedding Video : Lauren + Michael

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.39.14 PM.png

Michael and Lauren met on 1/11/11, during their freshman year of college - but it was a few years later, on a medical mission trip to Peru, that their bond truly strengthened. After that trip, they were inseparable. As they grew closer, their favorite pastime became long walks, talking and learning more and more about each other - and falling in love.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.37.29 PM.png

Just before Christmas 2016, Michael planned their most special walk around Nashville ever, strolling through the gorgeous lights at Cheekwood before ending at Lipscomb University, their alma mater. Lauren walked  up to a candlelit table only a few yards away from where they first met filled with photos and a chalkboard easel that said "Will you marry me?” (Hint: she said yes.)

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.37.56 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.39.00 PM.png

Michael and Lauren wanted a classic autumn wedding with a timeless look and feel. They got married on 11/11/17 (keeping the 1 theme from the night they first met),  in a gorgeous venue with wide open windows that allowed in the gentle sunlight and put the fall leaves on display. Every detail of their special day was thoughtfully put together - a map of Peru, photo collages, coffee & donut puns, and handmade wedding favors injected so much of Michael and Lauren’s personality into the celebration.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.40.55 PM.png

Looking back on their wedding, Lauren and Michael loved every celebratory, fun moment, but it’s a quiet one that sticks out the most. Their first look was so special. Michael says he can still hear Lauren’s wedding dress sliding down each stair and hear her shoes on the hardwood floors as she walked toward him for the first time on that day. Both of their nerves melted away once they saw each other - they knew the best part of their lives was about to begin. We loved working with this sweet couple, and we wish them a lifelong “happily ever after.”

Nashville Wedding Video : Janae + Justin

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.47.34 PM.png

Janae & Justin started out as high school sweethearts, but they turned that young love into a romance that will last for a lifetime. After attending college at Purdue together, they packed their bags and began building a life together in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. While on a family vacation to Italy, Justin proposed on the shore of gorgeous Lake Como. Janae, of course, said, “Yes!”

As Janae & Justin planned their wedding, they wanted a classic, romantic day with rustic touches. More than anything, they wanted a relaxed atmosphere for friends and family to celebrate the next chapter of their life together. They found the perfect venue for the day of their dreams in Cedarwood Weddings.

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.46.51 PM.png

When September 30 rolled around, the wedding was just as Justin & Janae had dreamed it would be - full of family and friends celebrating with them, laughing & dancing the day away. Looking back on their day, the couple remembers looking out over the reception and celebrating not only that they’d just gotten married, but that everyone was having so much fun! Justin and Janae loved the little moments during their wedding day when they felt as if they were the only two people in the world - from the magic of their first look to saying their vows to one another for the first time. We had so much fun shooting Justin and Janae’s day - even though many of their guests never even realized a videographer was on the scene! That was the feel of their entire wedding: easy, natural, and fun. We’re so glad we got to be a part of their lives joining together.

Nashville Wedding Video : Erin + Carter

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.53.51 PM.png

When Carter and Erin met during freshman year at Mississippi State, it was love at first sight - almost. Carter’s friend ended up with Erin’s number after that first meeting, but Carter snagged it from him to ask her out… and after that, the rest was history. Here are Carter’s words about their journey to falling in love: “For our first date, I took her to the nicest place I could think of: Chili’s. We fell in love over Chili's Molten Lava Cake. That year, we spent so much time together that my college buddy made me sign an agreement to not have a girlfriend until after Christmas break. But I only made it until October 28th, 2010 before asking Erin to be my girlfriend.”

Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.53.34 PM.png
Screen Shot 2018-04-16 at 7.53.03 PM.png

October 28th, 2017 was pretty special, too. Their dating anniversary became their wedding day, and it was filled with countless moments that felt just like Carter and Erin - classic, but trendy; romantic, but with plenty of laughter stirred in. They chose a simple color palette at the gorgeous Graystone Quarry. The day was unusually cold, but the ceremony was filled with the warmth of family, from an uncle officiating the ceremony to a cousin singing as Erin walked down the aisle. Music held some of the most precious moments for Carter and Erin - their favorite memories from the wedding include How Great Thou Art being sung during the processional, and their first dance to the romantic La Vie en Rose by Louis Armstrong.

After seeing one of Matt G’s videos, Carter and Erin knew they wanted us to capture their special day, and we were honored to be a part of this classic romance. From the first look to the final wave, every moment was full of meaning. Carter and Erin were sent off to their honeymoon with a special surprise fireworks display - we think it was the perfect lighting to send them into their happily ever after.
