Downtown Nashville Wedding: Lauren and William

September 12, 2016

Lauren and William’s gorgeous summer wedding started at Autumn Crest Farm in Franklin for getting ready and portraits, then everyone traveled to Nashville for the ceremony at the Downtown Nashville Presbyterian Church, followed by a trolley ride to the reception at W.O. Smith Music School!

Their love story started when they met through mutual friends at a wedding in Baltimore more than two years ago. Lauren was living in New York City, and William was in Memphis, but they felt a spark immediately. They later met up at Steeplechase in Nashville with a group of friends, and they were able to talk and spend some time together. They went to a restaurant, talked, got ice cream, and talked more on a bench on the pedestrian bridge until it was time for Lauren’s flight back to NYC. That was the beginning of a long-distance relationship, and William later proposed at the same bench on the pedestrian bridge. 🙂

Said Lauren, “He’s a reserved listener, and I’m a super loud extrovert. But the way we think – the way we treat others, our morals, our values – are incredibly aligned. William’s happy place is duck hunting in the middle of the woods in Arkansas; mine is New York City. The important thing is that we’re willing and excited to share in these special moments with each other. I’ll go duck hunting, and he’ll ride the subway like a local.”

Their wedding was a beautiful blend of those elements of natural, rural beauty and urban vibe.

Lauren and William, it was such an honor to photograph your day, and it was so gorgeous from beginning to end!
