Jessica + Patrick | Downtown Nashville Bridge Building Wedding

Jessica made an impression on me the very first time we met for coffee. She's so carefree, but she certainly still has a level of get-it-doneness. I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of her wedding, and I'm so thankful I was able to get to know her and Patrick better over the past year. 

They were married at The Bridge Building in downtown Nashville on a somewhat dreary day, but that didn't matter. They were there to be married and celebrate with their wonderful family and friends, and that's exactly what they did. It was a beautiful day, no matter what the weather was, and I was so honored to spend it with them.

When "Hey, jump on my back!" goes wrong... :)

Jessica's not the type to wear much makeup, so when she saw that some of it came off when she wiped the icing off her face, well, you see what happened.

Since it started sprinkling when we were taking picture of Jessica and Patrick after their first look, we made sure to squeeze some time in after the ceremony for some night shots of the two of them.

The reception was travel themed, which I loved. Jess even gave Patrick an Adventure Book (yes, like from Up) for his wedding gift. So it only made sense to throw paper airplanes in them as they left, right? Ummmmm, sure. :)

I love when couples have me bring a photo booth for their reception. I love the memories that are captured in it and how goofy people get. Since I have one of my second shooters run the booth for me, it's hilarious to see all the crazy moments I missed while I was on the dance floor. It makes the pace of editing a lot more fun.

Jessica and Patrick, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. You're such fun and adventurous people, and I can't wait to see where marriage takes you. 

Special thanks for the awesome vendors that made their day come together!
