In the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, Carly and Jason exchanged vows and celebrated their future together at their elegant Nashville Wedding at The Country Music Hall of Fame. Having first met on the dating app, Hinge, during the pandemic, they are a true modern day love story. Despite the challenges of trying to date online while the whole world was shutting down around them, they knew their connection was real and that they were a perfect match.
Witnessing their love for each other and getting to know them was an absolute joy. From the first moment I met Carly, I knew why Jason loved her so much, which was only solidified when I saw them together. Her genuine warmth and sweet personality welcomes everyone around her. Both Carly and Jason exude kindness, affection, and laughter. They are constantly stealing glances and laughing at each other’s jokes. Their stunning wedding day was no different.
Carly readied with the help of her mother. Her clean, satin wedding dress featured an elegant bow detail in the back. Carly wore her long, blonde hair down with the perfect amount of curls. Her classic, gorgeous look was completed with her white, long-stemmed rose bouquet.
Before the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom shared an intimate first look outside the church. Jason’s reaction was priceless as his jaw literally dropped as he turned around to see Carly. I live for capturing these candid, emotion-filled moments that will live on forever.
Carly and Jason chose their home church, Covenant Presbyterian, as the location for their wedding ceremony—a decision that held profound significance for them, especially in light of the recent tragedy at the church. Carly and Jason were determined to curate a joy-filled event surrounded by their loved ones that would be remembered for years to come.
After their beautiful ceremony, everyone made their way to Nashville’s premier wedding venue, The Country Music Hall of Fame. This stunning, iconic venue was the perfect setting for their elegant Nashville wedding reception. The decor was light and bright, which perfectly complemented Carly’s nature. The venue was alive with energy, and every detail was carefully curated to create an enchanting atmosphere for their guests to enjoy. Windows covered the walls and ceiling providing ample natural light and gorgeous views of downtown Nashville. Tall, clear vases of white flowers, blush pink roses, and greenery adorned the center of each table, while stringed lights hanging front the vaulted ceiling created a romantic glow as evening fell.
Being that Carly and Jason’s wedding took place at country music’s most iconic landmark, they made sure to honor those Nashville roots. Carly changed into a reception dress, complete with white cowgirl boots, and made her entrance with a dance to a Miranda Lambert song. Miranda is her favorite artist and it was so fitting! Later in the night, they surprised guests with a line dance instructor who taught everyone a line dance in light-up cowboy hats. Laughter and joy filled the room as friends and family danced the night away, celebrating Carly and Jason’s love.
Filled with intention and joy, Carly and Jason’s wedding made me tear up many times, as well as laugh big belly laughs watching them celebrate. I was moved by the profound love they shared, a love that will undoubtedly endure for a lifetime. It was an unforgettable day, and I am incredibly grateful to have been a part of it.
