Lauren & Matthew | Riverwood Mansion Wedding
It's already been just a little over a month since Lauren and Matthew said "I do," and I still can't believe it! Lauren and Matthew had such a beautiful wedding at Riverwood Mansion in Nashville, it was like a dream come true, to me, and to them! It maaaay have been a little hot, but we all made it through and I think a few of us are still reliving the day over and over again.
I first met Lauren earlier this year, just shortly after Matthew proposed, and knew that they would be a great couple to get to know! When we did their engagement session, it was especially hot, but they powered through it, almost without breaking a sweat!
The summer FLEW by, and then came their wedding! And it was beautiful!
I thought I'd be extremly nervous about shooting my first wedding, but after the engagement session went well, and knowing I've had multiple weddings as a second shooter and assistant under my belt- I wasn't. I was confident in myself in the way that Lauren and Matthew were confident in me. As time grew closer, I became more and more excited.
Riverwood Mansion is such a beautiful setting for a wedding, with a drive that frames the mansion perfectly. It's located in East Nashville, and is pretty quiet, with tons of trees, a garden, and a few gazebos. But the best part of the whole mansion, was the newly weds themselves. They're happiness and love just radiated from them, and you could tell everyone who attended was beyond happy for them.
I am so incredibly happy for Lauren and Matthew, as their wedding day was perfect! And they were the best first wedding couple a photographer could ask for! Thank you Lauren and Matthew for trusting me to witness your love and the start of a new chapter in your lives. I only pray for happiness, success, and a long life together for the two of you!
