Paige and Jon's wedding was forecast to be bright and sunny, no matter the weather! Their sunny, yellow color palette provided a happy ambiance that paired well with gold accents.
Their Nashville wedding rentals were featured on the Liberty Party Rental blog. I've selected a few of my favorite photos but hop over to their website to see more details from this warm wedding at The Bridge Building.

At a recent photo shoot at the McConnell House, photographer John Myers and a select group of Nashville wedding pros came together to create a classic, styled wedding to inspire all of your brides seeking a timeless look.
The beauty of this Nashville wedding shoot is that the wedding team was smart: they chose modern elements but still managed to create an overall look that would resonate forever. Unlike super trendy designs that immediately date our events, the McConnell photo shoot works in 2016 and beyond.
I reached out to John of John Myers Photographer to learn more about the vision for the shoot - how did they approach it, why was it selected? Here's what I learned:
"We went for a modern look for the dress and tux and showcased the latest trend for each that wasn't going to date the images. Our team felt that Alex Ferguson, the bride, and Lance Garrison, the groom, had very good chemistry together so we wanted to showcase them and their on-camera attraction.
Actually our goal was timeless. Even though the style was latest fashion and looks, we went with a very classic look so that the images were dated within a few years. The McConnell House was amazing and provided us lots of locations throughout the venue that added to the overall style with the brick walls, hardwood floors and classic fixtures."
Is this classic look for you? Here's a list of the team that made it happen...

The best wedding videographers and photographers not only capture the best of your day but do so without impacting the moment. I attended a wedding once where the photographer continued to hop in front of everyone and remained intrusive throughout the day. That's not what you want yet, the only way to select a vendor does better is by listening to past clients. The reality is: no matter how great the product after the fact, an obtrusive videographer can ruin your day and leave a bad taste for years to come.
Ashley and John got married last Ocober at Legacy Farms and posted a review online that might help all of you brides and grooms. The couple worked with Matt of Audio Video Art, who has video'd hundreds of Nashville brides. What stood out to Ashley: how natural Matt captured her wedding.
Read her review below and see her wedding teaser for yourself.

Sprinkles, the very first cupcake bakery, has made Tuesday's in Nashville even sweeter for at least one person: me! It's one of three days of the week where my absolute favorite cupcake in the world - banana - is served.
Since my first visit to Sprinkles Phoenix in 2009, I've tried to resist these perfect treats to no avail. When they opened the Atlanta store, I thought: I'm safe, it's a whole 4 hours away. And then, they announced they were opening a Nashville store, complete with their signature cupcake ATM. OMG. Why! Why!
That's the banana - front left!
What a love-hate affair we have. As I think of how much I love their cupcakes, especially on banana Tuesday, I wonder how many of you will delight your wedding guests with this indulgent treat? I certainly would:).
Sprinkles Nashville is located at 2606 12th avenue south, nashville, tennessee 37204. if for some ridiculous reason you havent tried them, give your sweet tooth a treat.
