This day was simply magical.
We love these Raines babes, and we absolutely loved their romantic, fun, destination affair here in Nashville. Kristin and Mark’s Engagement Session goes down as one of our favorites still – they are naturals in front of the camera, so good at focusing on each other, and so good at those stunner looks that knock you off your feet. Their wedding day totally topped that — from the incredible classic details (the Vintage Rolls Royce you’ll see in their portraits? It was once owned by the legend Bing Crosby), the elegant intimate feel, and most importantly, all of the tears. We have never experienced such a beautiful, emotional reaction from a groom in marrying his stunning bride. Mark, who is totally sharp and manly and established, could not keep it together for their stunning ceremony at Cheekwood Garden’s Reflection Pool. And we loved every bit of it. The joy in those moments was tangible.
After having a blast with the bridal party (note: Dom Pérignon for days) the two jumped in the most stylish getaway car known to man which whisked them away to an elegant dinner at Nashville’s Watermark. Speeches filled with laughter and tears, the most delish plated dinners and crafted cocktails — the evening was perfect. We really truly loved every moment of celebrating and capturing you, Kristin and Mark. Thank you for taking us along for the ride.
Here are some of our favorites from the day.
