Outdoor Wedding at White Dove Barn

Michelle and Justin’s elegant outdoor wedding at White Dove Barn was full of special touches and emotional moments, just as every wedding should be! We may have had rain all morning and thunderstorms in the forecast, but the downpour stopped just in time for their outdoor wedding ceremony and pictures with the most stunning view of the rolling hills at this beautiful venue in Beechgrove, TN!

Michelle carried a locket on her bouquet with photos of her Uncle Ron and her beloved dog Bruno, both of whom passed away recently, and there was also a chair reserved for her uncle with a white rose and candle in remembrance. The addition of flowing, lush florals from Enchanted Florist on a wooden altar for the ceremony with white rose petals scattered down the aisle, and soft white and and blush florals and trailing greenery artfully arranged by Velour Premier Events on the handmade, white-washed farmhouse tables,  created an elegant, airy, welcoming atmosphere for the celebration. These special touches are just a few examples of how Michelle and Justin made the day their own, and it was just an all-around genuine, loving event with so much joy and celebration for this happy couple.

When Michelle was reading a handwritten letter from Justin before the ceremony, she started to cry and had to stop reading before all the makeup washed away! You can see this moment (one of my favorites from the day) below, along with so many more from throughout their day. I hope wedding moments like these always remind these two of how they felt on this day at the beginning of their journey together.

Michelle and Justin met soon after Michelle moved to Nashville from Ohio. She was hanging out with a friend who had also moved here from Ohio, and Justin was his roommate. Within a month they were dating, and they soon knew they were going to spend the rest of their lives together!

I loved photographing this couple through each part of their wedding journey, including their light and airy romantic outdoor engagement session, which you can see HERE!

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. McMillan! I hope you had the best time honeymooning in Ocho Rios, Jamaica!

And special thanks to these amazing vendors who made their day such a success!:
