Kyle and Carly met in dental school. Carly would work as a dental hygienist for Kyle’s patients whenever she could, and as they got to know one another, they only wanted to spend more and more time with one another. From their first date on, they were inseparable. On a trip to California wine country, they realized that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together - and Kyle started to plan.

One week after moving to Nashville to be with Carly, Kyle drove her out to Arrington Vineyards. Knowing that wine country held such special memories for them, it was only fitting for him to propose with a beautiful custom ring on the hillside overlooking the vineyards in their now hometown. Friends were hiding to capture the moment with photos, of course - and after Carly said yes, they headed to her parents’ home, where friends and family were waiting to celebrate with them!

Carly and Kyle wanted a timeless, elegant wedding day, and Saddle Woods Farm was the perfect spot. Even when the rain started to pour, the day was perfect - the barn was cozy, and it was the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous neutral colors they’d chosen. During their first look, any worries of frustrations about weather melted away - they were  getting ready to marry the love of their lives, and it was going to be perfect.

Looking back, it’s the little details that Carly and Kyle hold dear. Carly remembers stepping into her wedding dress and knowing it was the perfect choice. She also remembers the tender first dance she had with her dad, knowing that he was proud of the man she’d chosen to marry. Kyle remembers being surprised with a donut board his brother handcrafted for their reception - especially because donuts are his favorite. We loved working with Carly and Kyle, and we’re so happy with their video. Even with the rain, their day was beautiful, and it’s easy to capture the love so apparent between these two. We hope they treasure their highlight film forever!

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!

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 : 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.

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.”

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.
