Tennessee summers are hot and unforgiving, but it's also when rolling hills and wooded enclaves are the most picturesque and wedding season is in full bloom. And when family and friends are together, and you're about to say "I do", nothing else matters. Hailey and Nathan united their families and married at the scenic and expansive Grace Valley Farms in Shelbyville, Tennessee.
After photographs of them getting ready, they would make their way to the nearby forest for their first look. It's always a tender moment that is truly cherished. Amidst the busy day, this is one of the rare times bride and groom can be alone and just enjoy each other before walking down the aisle. The excitement is palpable. Vows were reviewed one more time. The ring bearer guarded the day's most important treasure. The flower girl's petals were ready to mark the path for the bride to walk down the aisle and meet her groom. The bridesmades gave one last wave before they walked down the aisle while the guys have one last smoke and laugh. Hailey was escorted by two very important men of her life to met Nathan. They exchanged vows, exchanged rings and shared a romantic first kiss. We would take formal pictures of the family; the wedding party and everyone was excited to start the celebration!
Nathan and Hailey enjoyed a beautiful first dance surrounded by the ones they love who love them. They cut the cake. Eager single guys and girls fought for the garter and bouquet. Everyone danced through the night until the final exit.
Thanks to Sam Fox with Make Some Noise Events, the staff and venue of Grace Valley Farms, Jason Bihler as my second photographer and all the other wonderful vendors who made this day perfect. Thank you Hailey, Nathan and your families for giving us a part of in your special day. Congratulations!
