A Nashville Wedding – Paige + Ben

In the heart of Nashville, the Noelle stands as a beacon for everything that makes Nashville the unique city it is. From the Rare Bird rooftop bar to the Makeready restaurant, this Art Deco inspired space has it all, which is why Paige and Ben knew this was where they wanted to get married.

I have known the bride, Paige, for fourteen years now – we both came to Auburn University from small towns in south Georgia not knowing anyone and became roommates together in the dorms. We’ve been through it all together – everything from ridiculous fashion choices in the early 2000’s to life altering events as we’ve grown up. Whatever it has been, we have done it together.

This Nashville wedding will remain so special to me, watching one of my most treasured friends marry the most fun, kind-hearted and genuine man and start their new life together – one that will be full of joy, laughter, and some pretty killer dance moves.

I have seen a lot of first looks over the years; and I can’t quite tell you why this one was different. Maybe it is because I’ve known Paige for years or maybe it was because Ben is one of the most genuine people in the entire world. Whatever the case, I was tearfully taking these photos as they first saw each other on their wedding day. It was so special, so sweet, so perfect.

There was so much joy at this ceremony as Paige’s father, mother and step-father all gave her away to be married to Ben. Together, this family has always done such an incredible job of leading gracefully and remembering that is what matters the most. This was a beautiful ceremony to unite the sweetest and most fun couple.

As the sun set in the Saidee Gallery of the hotel, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in bar and lobby area to celebrate the newest married couple. The space was flawlessly transformed into a reception unlike any other, full of color and lush fabric that was the perfect setting for the party to commence.
