Mary Carlisle + Ricky: Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding

Can we talk about that knockout Nashville skyline? It served as the perfect ceremony backdrop for Mary Carlisle and Ricky, and the gorgeous September day was the cherry on top. Mary Carlisle's choices of protea, garden roses, astilbe, and lush greenery provided a soft, organic quality to balance the clean, modern lines of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Congrats to this beautiful couple!

Emily + Tyler: Organic, Summery Garden Wedding

One of my favorite things is when floral design has the power to truly reflect a bride's unique style. Emily is one-of-a-kind--as you might guess from her gorgeous silvery blue wedding dress. Her fashion sense is top notch and always makes a statement. She's also a foodie, so naturally we had to put pomegranates in her bouquet. Icelandic poppies made an appearance as a nod to her solo trip to Iceland, and Tyler's boutonniere included a succulent reminiscent of his love of the American West. All of that to say, these two are the salt of the earth, and their wedding celebration was a wonderful representation of their adventurous, sweet spirits.

Sophie + Matthieu: Autumnal Paris Elopement

It was such a joy to be a part of this magical elopement shoot in Paris! A huge thanks to Kristin Sweeting for bringing me along on this one! We loved the experience of sourcing flowers from local Parisian markets and were so pleased with how the details and color palette came together in a beautiful, unexpected way. I mean, the way the flowers and the dress perfectly coordinated with the colors of autumn in Paris is so perfect! And it's hard to beat having the Eiffel Tower in the background. To top it off, Sophie and Matthieu were absolutely adorable and hilarious and in love. (Don't miss our behind-the-scenes video about our time in Paris!)

Keegan + Andy: Joyful Spring Wedding in Nashville

When Keegan and Andy first contacted me, they shared that this quote was a large part of their wedding inspiration:

Day after day I think of you as soon as I wake up. Someone has put cries of birds on the air like jewels.
— Anne Carson

It was so much fun to meet with both of them and see their vision unfolding! They wanted their day to be comfortable and joyful, which they absolutely achieved--as you'll see as soon as you peruse these beautiful photos from The Image is Found. Andy is really into moss, so we incorporated moss into the succulent centerpieces as a personal touch. The cheery color palette complemented the glorious spring day at The Cordelle perfectly!
