Nashville Wedding Video : Mandie + Jonathan

In 2013, Jonathan was headed to visit his best friend for Thanksgiving. When Mandie showed up to her house (which she shared with the best friend), she was greeted by a bulldog at the door and Jonathan shortly after. He charmed her into a first date that same week, and a few day visit quickly turned into a few weeks, as the couple fell for each other more and more. Jonathan left for Afghanistan after Christmas, but thanks to Skype, their love only grew stronger during their time apart.

Whenever Jonathan got time to come home, he and Mandie would walk through Piedmont Park in Atlanta with their dogs. In 2017, he planned the most special walk of all. On a water break for the pups, he dropped to one knee and asked Mandie to marry him. She said yes, of course - and she and the dogs were very excited.

The happy couple wanted a classic, glamorous Southern wedding. They woke up to rainy skies, but by wedding time, the sun joined them for a perfect fall afternoon at a stunning venue. Looking back on their wedding day, Mandie and Jonathan are so glad they did a first look! They’ll always remember the look on each other’s faces, knowing forever was about to begin. A private moment for the two of them to cherish calmed their nerves and prepared them for the most special day of their lives.

We loved filming this gorgeous wedding day, and we’re so glad Mandie and Jonathan had a blast with us, too! They said our calm way of working even when it seemed like everything else was total chaos settled the day down, and we’re glad! (Hey, it’s not our first wedding rodeo.) We hope Mandie and Jonathan can watch the video and cherish their wedding over and over in the years to come.
