Jaci and Alex were married in Franklin Tennessee, one of the most adorable little towns I have ever seen.  There wedding and reception were held at The Factory.  It is such a neat building with amazing spots for photography!  It is an old factory turned into an unique shopping center and venue.

When I first met with Jaci and she was telling me about her vision for the ceremony/reception, I was getting soooooo excited!  I  loved all of her ideas and couldn’t wait to photograph them all :) She had me at black and white umbrellas hanging from the ceilings 😉  And I was super excited to travel to Nashville for a little adventure!  I asked a great photographer friend of mine, Jessica if she would like to shoot it with me and I was excited she said yes ( I know she loves a good adventure too! )!

It was such a fun trip listening to some music, exploring new areas, location scouting and photographing a wonderful wedding!  I also had the best catfish I have ever eaten in Nashville at Etch!

I will start with the girls getting ready.  I loved this part of the day.  It felt like a wonderful family friend reunion.  So much love and excitement going on in the girls room :)  I was just photographing this little guy in KC when he was still in his mommy’s belly!  I know Jaci was super excited he joined the world in time to attend the celebration!

While I was going through all of Tyler & Jamie’s wedding photos, I couldn’t help but smile all along the way.  Because in nearly every photo Tyler & Jamie had smiles so big that they were contagious!  You could literally see the spark in their eyes!  That may sound silly but it is true :)  It was a super super awesome wedding day!!!!!!!  And what a wonderful bridal party they had!  Everyone bridesmaid and groomsmen were smiling, laughing and occasionally tearing up :)  While I was photographing the girls getting ready at the downtown Marriott, Nate was photographing the guys getting ready and throughout the day.

Their ceremony and reception was at The Guild.  It has an amazing rustic charm!

I will start with Jamie’s beautiful dress!
