“Our lives are typically going a million miles a minute and in a lot of different directions, so whenever we actually get a chance to spend quality time together, we honestly just enjoy relaxing at home on the couch or out on the deck with our dogs. It also usually involves a Papa Johns pizza, bread sticks and an assortment of ice cream or donuts.”

“We are a Tinder success story. But what’s funny is not many people know that’s the real story. For obvious reasons, we weren’t always forthcoming with the Tinder detail. We’d typically say we simply met “online” or through friends depending on who asked. That said, it has slowly leaked out over time, and now we certainly don’t care, because swiping right was the best decision we ever made.”

“Adam proposed on June 1st at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens outside of Nashville, TN. He planned out every last detail from the exact location within the gardens to making sure someone was there to capture the moment on video. I was completely surprised and had absolutely no idea he had been planning it for months. It actually shocks me that he kept it a secret from me for so long! Everything about our proposal was perfect, and I’ll forever cherish those moments standing together on the garden’s Wisteria Arbor.”

“Three words that describe us as a couple: hard-working, compassionate and funny.”

“As cliche as it sounds, Adam is truly my knight in shining armor. From day one, he has proven to be the perfect caretaker and partner in life. If I have a problem, he knows how to fix it. If I don’t know how to do something, he shows me how. If I ever need something, he will do most anything to make sure I get it.  He’s my biggest supporter, and I couldn’t be more lucky to venture through life with him by my side.”

“I love how smart, beautiful, compassionate and hard-working Amy is. I love knowing I can trust she will be by my side through thick and thin. I appreciate how much she has always loved and accepted both me and my family without reservation. Amy is much more than my best-friend, she is my everything. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her. She’s irreplaceable.”

“While it may be a small detail in the grand scheme of things, one of the most exciting parts about marriage is finally sharing the same last name with the person who means the most to you.  ”

“Our favorite part about the session was how great Mandy directed the shots. We truly appreciated how she took the time to scope out locations ahead of time and came to the session with a plan. She was great at telling us how to position ourselves and always made sure my ring, hair and our outfits were perfectly placed. We also love that she remembered to bring a squeaky toy for the photos with our dogs. That worked perfectly!”

“If there are things in your relationship that mean a lot to both of you, find a way to incorporate it into your wedding day. The thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed! Sit down with each other before planning your wedding and have an idea of what is really important to each party. Once this is understood, both can find things they really want to invest in and other things that may not need much time or attention. (i.e. photography was SUPER important to Courtney and the DJ was super important to Danny).”
