Nashville Wedding Recap – Emma & Ryan

As you may have noticed, we’re a bit behind on blogging many of our beautiful past weddings so I’m trying desperately to catch up these days since we have had the pleasure of working with so many wonderful couples and we want to show off their gorgeous events!

Today we’d like to introduce to you Emma and Ryan Adams, two of the most deeply in love and devoted clients we have ever met. Although we didn’t get to meet Ryan until late in the game, we knew before even being introduced that he and Emma would be blissfully happy together.

Their ceremony was held at Cathedral of the Incarnation on Saturday, October 29th. Emma and her bridesmaids spent the morning together at A Moment’s Peace Salon and later at Union Station to dress. Emma looked stunning in her gown and carried white roses tied with a blue Rosary. All floral arrangements were provided by Brocade Designs.

Emma and Ryan chose not to see each other before the wedding, making Emma’s entrance such a touching experience to witness. Emma and Ryan were particularly glad to be surrounded by such a lose knit support system during this time in their lives.

Before heading to meet guests at Union Station for the reception, the couple shared in these photos with close family, the wedding party, and their photographer Kristyn Hogan. Kristyn’s personality fit so well with this couple, as they all wanted to capture how beautiful and serious the day was without forgetting to have some fun with it also.

The reception at Union Station was absolutely picturesque and incorporated many classic touches. Place cards held in wine works highlighted the bottles displayed on tables. Emma and Ryan used a vintage suitcase as their card box, including a sweet note inside. Our favorite, though, might have been the old family photographs displayed on this same table.

Guests danced all night with Emma and Ryan, up until the NashVegas All Stars played the last song, “Piano Man” by Billy Joel. Even the kiddos didn’t let up until the very end!

Emma and Ryan, it was truly a pleasure working with both of you. Thank you so much for including us in this moving evening with your family and friends. Congratulations!
