I could barely wait to feature this wedding! Holly & I had a surprise reunion when we met to chat about her wedding, we both felt like we knew each other from somewhere else. Turns out we were in 4-H together for several years and I had even been to her parents house when we were younger :) After several, oh my goodness moments and connecting the dots from our childhood, we picked up right where we left off & capturing her wedding day now meant even more to me. I could not be happier for this couple and when we went around East Nashville from tattoo parlors to abandoned warehouses for their Engagement Session, I felt an even greater bond with them & couldn’t wait for Aug 30th to arrive :) Everything about Holly & Joe’s wedding day was completely unique even up to the day they chose to get married. August 30th fell on a Tues this year, why a Tues you may ask? August 30th was their date of choice to continue a family tradition, both Holly’s grandparents and parents were married on Aug 30th, so she and Joe wanted to carry on the tradition. How sweet & such an amazing memory to pass on for several generations! There are a million other details that I will let unfold as you look through their images :) Enjoy!
