Avel + Sarah | Wedding Day | Nashville | Cathedral of the Incarnation

I must start this wedding story by saying Sarah is a vivacious lady! Motivated, kind and freaking hilarious.  When Sarah contacted me to photograph her wedding I was so EXCITED!  We met for coffee and she booked me that day. It wouldn’t be until months later that I would meet her soon to be husband Avel.

Avel has a smile that brightens a room and a calm, cool and collected spirit. THE PERFECT MATCH.

Avel + Sarah had been dating long distance for their whole relationship and in April they took the leap into Marriage!

Their wedding took place at the absolutely GORGEOUS Cathedral of the Incarnation.

Their day was full of laughter, fun, bagpipes, dancing, drinks, delicious food, but most of all it was surrounded by family, friends and lots of LOVE!
