Arrington Vineyard Wedding: Whitney + Chris

September 5, 2015
Arrington Vineyard Wedding

From San Francisco they flew and Nashville they landed, Whitney and Chris are the picture of what true love and family means. They decided to get married near Chris’ family; his mother has early-onset Alzheimer’s. Their wedding took place at Arrington Vineyards, just outside of Nashville – one of the most beautiful and scenic locations for an outdoor wedding. The weather and setting could not have been more perfect, from the blue sky to the green vineyards, ripe with grapes.

Whitney is a natural beauty; she is gorgeous – both inside and out. Chris is her perfect fit, strikingly handsome with a kindness that shows. I could not have asked to photograph a more beautiful couple.

Her dress! Gorgeous with its open back and intricate detail and pattern, Whitney’s dress was made for her and she absolutely stunned. No one can ever compare to her beauty.

Chris patiently waited outside of the house, and the love and happiness on his face was so heart-warming to see.

Arrington Vineyards is a magnificent place to have a wedding. I definitely made use of all the greenery that surrounded us, and it complimented the beautiful floral bouquets.

Family is so important to Chris and Whitney, and these family photographs are some of my favorite. Being able to capture Chris’ mom’s beautiful smile was so wonderful.
