Deeann & Loyd - Wedding Day! Franklin, TN

Deeann & Loyd were the winners of my wedding giveaway this year, and I am SO happy that I chose them. I went to the Nashville area this last weekend for their wedding & was wowed by the beautiful details that Deeann spent so much time on to make this wedding exactly what she wanted. She is an artist, so I knew it would be amazing, but WOW.... it was totally my style and just gorgeous.

The ceremony & reception were held at their church, Journey, which is in The Factory at Franklin (which is amazing). As I mentioned, Deeann is an artist & created this awesome old door/window combo which hangs along the back of the church (you'll see it lots further down)... Anyways, I took the liberty to writing their initials in the dirt :)

She & her bridesmaids carried lanterns instead of flowers... Everything had a unique touch. This necklace was made by her maid of honor, Tally, and features a flower piece from Deeann's grandmother.I love the "first look" with the bride's mom when she first sees her daughter as a bride....
One of the flowergirls was coloring this picture of a princess, which I found all to appropriate for this wedding day.Speaking of flower girls, I found another one later on like this.... (Sidenote: She found this & started playing all on her own... She's 2, adorable, and has amazing musicians for parents, so no doubt this picture is just speaking to her future :)
Deeann, you were a breathtaking bride. The epitome of natural beauty.
Loyd & his groomsmen were such a blast... This photo was (almost) completely unprompted. They're hilarious.
Vintage. Handmade. Unique. That was the theme surrounding this wedding.... and the details were perfect.
Guests could "sign/type in" at the typewriter above, and then leave notes to the couple below:
All of the old doors, windows, lanterns, tree branches, and candles gave such a romantic feel.
I followed them as they walked out of the sanctuary to catch this next shot (when "no one" was looking :)
These next two are some of my all-time favorites... Deeann & Loyd.... I am SO glad you applied for the wedding photography giveaway and know I made the right decision in choosing you. I wish you both all of the best as you move on to exciting changes in the "dirty south" :) Keep in touch! - If you're ever on tour in Cincinnati, holla!

Amanda, Do you mind giving me the direct link to just Deeann's wedding post so that I can put it on my blog and people can click on it and see my jewelry from your blog? If that is ok, you can email it to tallyanajewelry@gmail.com. I am sure that there is an easy way to do it but I am not sure how. I love the pictures! You did an amazing job!

These are awesome! I love the b/w image of her getting ready with the mirror in the back, and that's so awesome they threw leaves at them!
