Justin and Loni met while Loni was visiting Nashville, from her native state of Wisconsin, to visit a friend. During the visit, her friend came down with an illness and was unable to go sightseeing around Nashville with Loni. Loni ventured out to tour the city on her own and met Justin, a Texas native, living in Nashville. I suppose it was one of those storybook encounters that would unexpectedly shape the future forever. Fast forward to September 29, 2018, the day of their Timothy Demonbreun House wedding with family and friends in attendance.
Shortly after arriving, I looked through the window and saw the flower girls playing, to pass time I suppose, awaiting the big event. These candid, pure moments are an important part of what makes a cohesive story.

It was officially showtime, the ceremony begins, shortly before sunset.
Justin takes the march first, while guests all focused their attention immediately.
How could I NOT photograph these adorable children?
Loni graced the aisleway and really had guests’ undivided attention. Naturally, these are critical moments that I have to focus on documenting, for important reasons, such as the couple not killing me afterwards, LOL.
One interesting component of documentary wedding photography is watching the guest reactions and other moments of human interaction.
Soon after the ceremony, we all enjoyed a delicious in-house catered meal and were ready to get the party started with the reception.
Cake cutting, without a huge mess, lol!!
Lovely first dance for the couple.
The cigar bar on the outdoor back patio by the pool was an interesting, very photogenic touch. All we needed was Al Pacino and Ray Liotta.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this lovely story about Justin and Loni’s Timothy Demonbreun House wedding. I loved the feeling of intimacy in the historic venue, love, and energy, All flowing together, through real human interaction and emotion. Congratulations guys!!
