Red, white and blue, sprinklers, sparklers, southern food trucks, a row boat getaway, a fluffy dog and lots of joyful children make for the best, all-american editorial shoot. In the heart of Tennessee, on a very hot summer day, lots of magic happened thanks to this amazing group of vendors. From the florals to the food trucks, each vendor put in so much work to bring life to this story and the vision would not have been complete without all of them!
With it’s quaint pond, rolling hills and shaded woods, Cedarwood made the perfect backdrop for this fun-filled day. It was hot for sure and everyone had a place to be and things to prepare for whatever was next on our shot list! Between the outfit changes, location changes and abundant lovely details thanks to Amber Housley, there was never a stand still moment. This is the second time that I have visited Nashville with Nancy to assist an editorial shoot with Amber Housley for Southern Weddings Magazine and it just keeps getting better and better. Like a wedding day, editorial shoots are long days and on this particular day, as the day got longer and we got sweatier, the smiles on our faces only grew.
We were so happy to have Southern Weddings, Creative Director, Emily Thomas with us and she sure did keep the day full of fun!
