Caitlyn and Marcus’s romantic fall wedding day unfolded on a crisp October day in Nashville. While there was a touch of chill in the air, the sun shined brightly, but not as brightly as Caitlyn’s smile. She was beyond excited to be married, and her joy filled the room and flowed through the day and the fall scenery painted a beautiful backdrop for the couple’s first look and later their wedding portraits.
I loved Caitlyn’s bridal bouquet, which was a gorgeous mixture of white and blush pink roses, accented by tall blue flowers, greenery, and one orange flower in the center, that drew your attention instantly. The same vibrant fall colors and lovely floral arrangements decorated the ceremony and reception space.
Caitlyn and Marcus met outside to share their private first look, surrounded by the brilliant orange and gold fall foliage. As they stood by the pond and Marcus turned to see his bride, he had the most genuine, sweet reaction. These are the moments I live to capture – those joy-filled, emotional moments you’ll want to remember forever.
Caitlyn and Marcus exchanged vows in the beautiful Christ Cathedral Church, one of Nashville’s oldest churches. The church’s magnificent stained glass windows emitted a warm, colorful glow, creating an intimate and romantic atmosphere. The timeless charm of this historic space set the stage for a day filled with love and celebration.
After their beautiful wedding ceremony, everyone ventured to Hermitage Golf Course for their reception. Upon arrival, the couple and I snuck away to capture their wedding portraits. Out on the scenic landscape, we were met by the venue’s Scottish Blackface sheep — a must see at Hermitage Golf Course — and we knew we had to incorporate them into their wedding day portraits! It made for a unique and unforgettable wedding day memory. As we wrapped up their wedding portraits, the couple drove back to the venue in a golf cart with a “Just Married” sign fastened to the back. The newlyweds then went on to celebrate the night away surrounded by their friends and family.
Caitlyn and Marcus’s romantic fall wedding was a beautiful celebration of love. Every element came together to create a day that reflected the couple and their wedding day vision. It was an honor to be a part of their special day, capturing memories that will be treasured for a lifetime. Congratulations, Caitlyn and Marcus!
