Hailey and Melissa met four years ago through a mutual friend, and the day finally came for them where they decided to make it forever! They wanted to do a Christmas themed wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends, and they got just that! May the photos begin from this lovely same sex wedding at the Cordelle!

The couple searched for Nashville wedding venues with a historical feel, and LGBT friendly. They found the perfect venue with The Cordelle, located in the SoBro area of downtown Nashville. Beautiful venue and very kind people!

Hailey and Melissa have two dogs. As a fellow animal lover I can appreciate the trouble they went through to have their dogs transported to the venue for a few moments!

Melissa’s uncle officiated the wedding ceremony, and did a great job! He spoke of National Lampoons Christmas and used analogies from that movie about selflessness and love. It was inspiring and entertaining to be there and document the story!

I met with Hailey and Melissa to discuss their wedding photography. I was thrilled to learn they found me through the LGBT chamber. They wanted an LGBT friendly wedding photographer and one with a non intrusive approach, so it was a perfect pairing. A documentary wedding photographer was right for them, and I’m pleased they chose me out of all Nashville wedding photographers!

There were plenty of fun activities for the children, and it was fun to capture them interacting naturally.

The ice cream bar was amazing and it was fun to document and observe them at work. It was a huge hit with the guests. For us too!

The natural candid moments of human emotion and human interaction are my favorite qualities of documentary wedding photography. Unposed is natural, and doesn’t interrupt the couple or guests’ experience. These are moments that only this style of wedding photography captures the same way.
