Nashville Wedding Video | Country Music Hall of Fame | Lauren + Ryan

Rarely do you meet a couple that has such an impact on you. From the moment I met Ryan and Lauren, I knew they were truly special souls. I knew that this Nashville wedding video would turn out really well. During his interview, Ryan said quite possibly the nicest things about Lauren that I have ever heard. Any girl would die to have their boyfriend or husband say these things about them; and yet if they did, it would still seem forced. However, when Ryan talks like this, he means it, and you know he means it. It’s genuine. Lauren has a huge heart and her love for Ryan is as clear as day. You will also quickly learn of Lauren’s love for Jesus. You soon realize that she lives this life of love day in and day out. I am honored to have had the chance to meet both of them and share in their wedding day. I love how the film turned out. You will laugh at the story telling how they met, and cry when you hear them talk about each other.

It was a cold, windy day in Nashville.  They braved the cold to do their first look at a park just south of the city.  Following this we headed to Scarritt Bennett Center, which is located on Vanderbilt’s campus.  Wightman Chapel is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for their very emotional ceremony. Ryan couldn’t hold it together as Lauren finally came down the aisle. You can see her mouth ‘I love you’ as she is walking towards him. Ryan was a wreck… so sweet to see!

Following the ceremony we went to the reception, which was held at the Country Music Hall of Fame, located in the heart of Nashville.   They were in an amazing space on the top floor with huge windows looking out on the city of Nashville. They had a custom chandelier made with crystals cascading down from its box shape.  Those same crystals trickled down behind the band as they entertained all the guests. They caught the light just right and sparkled in the background as people danced and enjoyed their evening.

I later found out that after everyone had left, Lauren and Ryan gathered all the flowers into the center of the dance floor and sat among them, sharing their first moment in privacy as husband and wife.

Kauai, Hawaii Wedding Video and Photography | Melissa + Sam
I was so excited when Melissa and Sam hired me to shoot their Hawaii Wedding.  For one, I had never been to Hawaii, it is the only state I had not been to. Yep, I have been to all the other states, including Alaska. Me and 5 other guys drove a Honda Odyssey from Ohio to Alaska and back in 5 days back in 2006, but that is another story.  Besides getting to finally go to Hawaii, I was getting to go to what I have heard to be the best of the islands, Kauai.  Besides going to Kauai and shooting the wedding, I was going to get to hang out with them for the whole week and join them on all sorts of fun activities. Our first day had us viewing the s ...

Had a wonderful time shooting Amy and Nick's April wedding. The two of them have very big hearts for each other and their families. Family from all over the world came to witness the event, and not one left unsatisfied. The attention to detail was spectacular and no single thing was looked over in the planning of the day. It was great to be a part of all of it, and share in a very memorable day for these two. Best of luck in Minnesota!
