The minute we met Caroline and Tanner we knew we had to photograph their wedding. They dated through college, got engaged during the fall semester of their senior year, and will be getting married this summer after they graduate. That reminded us of someone else we know…oh yeah, US! Chatting with them reminded us so much of our own dating and engagement story, and it made us so excited to celebrate this season with them.
Because they are working around their school schedules, we knew dates for their engagement session would be limited to holiday breaks. And with us traveling during the holidays, January was going to be the only option that worked for the both of us. An outdoor session in Tennessee in January is always a little risky…but these two were up for an adventure with us—and it really paid off!
The couple decided on the beautiful Ravenswood Mansion in Brentwood as the location for their engagement photos. When we checked the forecast that morning, it looked like we were going to have a rainy session. But we let Caroline and Tanner know that we have some adorable clear umbrellas that make great props, and they assured us they were in, rain or shine. And sure enough, in true Tennessee fashion, the forecast was wrong and the rain held back just long enough for their session!
Caroline wore the sweetest French blue dress for the first part of their session, which was a nod to their wedding colors. (Note to our other A and B Brides: Featuring your wedding color palette in your engagement photos is such a fun way to tie everything together!) We are so excited for their wedding in June at one of our favorite local venues, Birchwood!
Caroline and Tanner, we know you guys are figuring out all the things in this season… wedding planning, jobs, where you’re going to live after you graduate…We remember going through the very same thing as engaged college seniors. It’s a lot! But trust us when we say, it will all fall into place 🙂 Can’t wait to celebrate with you two in June and hear all about how your plans worked out!
