Rebecca and Benjamin live their lives day-to-day in Nashville, TN. After a long stint of being in a long-distance relationship? They closed that gap physically and then got freaking engaged. So what did they do? They drove all the way from Nashville for this amazing and elegant Nerman Museum Engagement session.

These two will be married in almost exactly two years at the Lightener Museum in St. Augustine, Florida. It’s probably the most beautiful wedding venue I’ve ever seen. Therefore, It’s absolutely fitting for one of the most beautiful couples I’ve ever met.

I originally met Rebecca when she was a bridesmaid for one of my favorite brides ever, Jordan, at her Weston Red Barn Farm wedding. She was so full of love, light, & helped me keep my energy levels high even when I’d been there and tired for hours. It’s always such a relief to meet and bond with someone in the wedding party immediately.

These two are huge lovers for family and advocates for each other, especially under the pressure of having such a long-distance relationship. After their engagement photos, we went for dinner where I got to know them even more. Ben has such a gentle soul and is so incredibly supportive of Rebecca and everything she does. She is the same. His music career and her Make-Up career put them both firmly in the art scene.

My husband and I have now made it our mission to see them in Nashville before their wedding so we can see their scene. They talk about it with such joy and maybe some of it is their local church scene, but it seems like an amazing place to be.

When you meet couples who want to hire you, the more enthusiastic, the better you feel. So this same-sex West Bottoms engagement session? I’ve peaked. Destiny reached out to me at the end of 2019. Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lindsey reached out a few months later. Told me her fiancee, Destiny, wanted to […]

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it.
