this wedding has been burning a hole in my pocket. i can’t possibly wait to share it any longer. hands down, one of my absolute all time favorites. not kidding.
trent and abby are amazing and special people to us! we met trent about 3 years ago when he worked for K2 Forma, the amazing company that created our entire brand, Smitten & Hooked. They were our neighbors at our studio in Noda. Trent was an intrigal part of creating our brand. Funny thing that I remember is when we were meeting and they asked me who my ideal client was, to describe them, I said Trent and Abby…2.5 years later, we shot their wedding. amazing.
Trent and Abby have been dating 10 years and moved to Nashville a little over a year ago. Selfishly we were super sad they moved but it was an awesome job opportunity that led them back to Nashville where they first met
To put added pressure on shooting their wedding, Abby is a photographer, an amazing photographer. It always makes you a little nervous shooting other photographers weddings but they put us at ease because they are so laid back.
We started the morning getting ready shots at Third Man Records downtown Nashville where Trent works as a graphic designer. I have never been in a cooler space in my life.
Their entire wedding was DIY and every single element had a personal touch with meaning.
They got married at Percy Warner Park where they had their first date over 10 years ago. Their reception at a beautiful small farm where they built the tables, personally did all the graphics and hand lettering on everything, set up the tables, did the flowers, had family make all the cakes and close friends catered it all farm to fork…..there was no stone left unturned. to top off the amazingness, they had a huge bonfire with a smores station….yes you are seeing exactly why this is a favorite right?
here is their day. told by us.
Trent did the invitations. They were incredible. He had one of their engagement photos screen printed onto this piece of wood.
can you say, favorite dress shot? yes please. P.S. thats a real elephant mount. We actually saw the episode of American Pickers where Jack White got this, so it was really fun seeing it in person.This is Abby’s adorable nieceobsessed with this portrait.first look goodness….
Abby’s “something blue” were her close friends who dressed in blueso clever
to end the night, chinese lanterns. it was beautiful
this is one of my favorite shots from the day.there aren’t words to tell you how special this wedding was to us. it was an honor to document the most important day for two people who are the most kind we have ever met. thanks trent & abby.
