Emily + Thomas | Whimsical Garden Wedding in Florida

We’re going to have to start this one the way Emily started her very first email to us: “I apologize in advance, this is going to be long.”

From that email, we pretty instantly fell in love with the idea of shooting Emily and Thomas’ wedding.  I mean, when you say “We’re going to be that couple that does a first look hours beforehand and possibly travel off site for photos. We’re the couple that will lay down in the grass or go off-roading in the woods. It’s just a dress.” you’re pretty much speaking our love language.  After learning more about these two and seeing their beautiful work (they are film wedding photographers in Florida!) we knew: this was a really great fit.

They visited us here in Nashville in the fall for their Engagement Session and we hung out way past our bedtimes eating giant taco salads and talking about our dogs.  We just like who they are.  As their wedding day drew near and the weather looked less than ideal, they never got down about it.  And even further — as the day came and the storms raged through what should have been their beautiful outdoor ceremony under the moss tree, they laughed it off and said “on with the party!” under the tent.  Hor’de’vours started being passed, drinks being poured, and eventually, dinner was served on the gorgeously styled farm tables before the “I do’s” were ever said.  We love how very much in the moment they were, how un-flustered they remained.  After all was said and done, Emily said the rain made the day feel more authentic, in a sense, and she was thankful for it.  THAT is our kind of bride.

And though their vows weren’t exchanged where they dreamed they would be, nothing could have put a damper on that beautiful ceremony.  Their officiant, Chelsey, did an exquisite job at putting words to the adventure Emily and Thomas call their relationship.  The rings were passed to each person in attendance to put their own blessing on the new marriage.  Tears were shed.  And most importantly, these two became one, surrounded by all of their nearest and dearest.

Their story is an sweet one, woven with tons of travel, long walks with their pups Canon and Oliver, early bedtimes and working hard on their business before work, adventures sponsored by groupon, and enough rolls of film to fill a house.  These two fearlessly support each other, and never say no to an opportunity.  We are honored that we got to be a part of their beautiful, flawlessly imperfect day in Florida.

Now here’s a billion photos (I promise we narrowed them down!)
