I don’t know what it is about southern weddings…but they are always so charming. It must be the combination of meaningful traditions and a classic aesthetic that never goes out of style. Photographer Ali Harper, who’s joining the Grey Collective, captured all Natalie and Conar’s beautiful wedding images on film (have we mentioned we love film? We have. Oh, okay. So you know, then?). This is our absolute favorite type of wedding: timeless and elegant. Want to see more of this wedding? You can head here to Ali’s blog!
And, my sweet Tennessee brides, were you wondering how this wedding got so pretty? You ought to call of the lovely Mary Alice of A Delightful Day. Her event design savvy helped put all of this together!
I love what photographer Ali shared about her bride and groom: Natalie and Conar were married in the town Natalie grew up in — Gallatin, Tennesse — and it had the best small town charm, just like you’d expect. They had quite honestly one of the most gorgeous fall days you could ask for, and filled the tiny downtown chapel at dusk with their dearest friends and family. One of my favorite moments of the day was getting to witness Conar open up the gift his bride gave him moments before their first look… a set of embroidered handkerchiefs. That sweet token, along with a handwritten note made all of us stop and simply take it all all in. After all the “big” things have been planned on a wedding day, I always find that it’s usually about the love in the little things that become so very meaningful…
