Last year, my geeky, nerdy dreams came true when Alyssa and Sean asked me to photograph their Lord of the Rings themed wedding in Nashville.
Ever since then, their happy day has been shared and featured on quite a few kickass wedding blogs, with Popsugar being the latest…and on my birthday, too!
Here are my top 10 super favorite photos from their Shire-inspired shindig, and CLICK HERE to check out their Popsugar feature.
That genuinely excited smile tho.
Alyssa did a first look with her dad, and it was adorable.
The youngest of the wedding party giving me sassy Blue Steele fierceness!
Moments before walking down the aisle, Dad (dressed as Gandalf the White) shared some words of wisdom and encouragement.
Alyssa sang a beautiful hymn during the ceremony.
I love telling my couples to whisper ridiculous stuff in each other’s ears during portraits!
A sweet moment during their first dance.
Out in the fields during magic hour.
Alyssa looking fierce in the gown she designed herself! She used her archery skills later in the night to shoot her bouquet, instead of tossing it.
Washing each other’s feet as a sign of commitment, love and equality in their marriage.
