Rustic + Elegant Historic Cedarwood Wedding: Amanda & Kyle

I’ve been dying to shoot at the Historic Cedarwood since I moved to Nashville, and this past weekend, I got the chance.  Amanda & Kyle got married on a bright, sunny, absolutely perfect Tennessee day.

You know that phrase “not a cloud in the sky”? Yeah, it was one of those days. And the details and decor at this wedding were on-point. The designers at Cedarwood Weddings pull out all the stops every weekend, and this was no exception!

The day started out at with Amanda and all her maids, at her mother’s home in nearby Belle Meade, relaxing while having their hair and make-up done before heading out to Cedarwood.

As I pulled in ahead of Amanda, Kyle and his guys were just unloading from their trucks and heading in. As always, and maybe a little bit more than normal (considering the circumstance), Kyle was smiling ear-to-ear and eager to start the ceremonies.

Amanda and her party arrived soon after and quickly slipped into their attire before Amanda & Kyle’s first look at the lake.

Afterwards we met up with the rest of the bridal party for a few quick group shots before the ceremony.

See what I mean…? Definitely a bright blue clear sky day…

I’ve been growing more and more fond of the family formals lately. They are equally, if not traditionally more important, than everything else there is to shoot on the wedding day. And each group has it’s own character. With this group, there is one character in particular who stands out just a bit…

The folks over at Cedarwood sure do take pride in their establishment. Celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year, it is amazing to see all the love and hard-work that has gone into making it one of the finest wedding venues in all of Tennessee.
