Nora and Jared’s Wedding at Duck Pond Farm in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee

May 24, 2014

Jared says Nora’s blue eyes captured his heart on the night they met. Nora says his calm and gentle demeanor drew her to him right away. They were both smitten, and it wasn’t long before they knew they would spend their lives together.

Last weekend, Nora and Jared were married at Duck Pond Farm in Mt. Juliet, a serene location not far from Nashville. With a beautiful view of a pond surrounded by acres of green grass and trees, the outdoor ceremony was personal, natural and elegant. The forecast called for rain – and some clouds rolled in – but the day stayed cool and dry for this lovely couple, their family and guests.

And yes, the groom did sneak in a little fishing at the pond before the wedding. 🙂

Congratulations, Jared and Nora! I hope you’re having a blast together on your tropical honeymoon. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your special day. It was perfect.

Special thanks to Anastasia Kudrez for assisting me, and to Jenni Hosey of Jenni Hosey Photography for being my second shooter.
