Brandon + Sydney Wedding | Owen Chapel + McConnell House | Franklin TN Wedding Photographer

I first met Sydney when she was looking for a photographer a couple years ago for her new golf apparel company, Sydney Elizabeth Golf.  We have worked together many times since then. In the short time I have known her I’ve watched Sydney go from college student, to graduate, to fíance (you can check out their ENGAGEMENT SESSION HERE) and now WIFE!

I loved the very cute and quaint historic church that Brandon and Sydney chose for their wedding ceremony. The day of the wedding was very hot and humid and I know Sydney was so thankful we knocked out her GORGEOUS Bridal Session at Carnton Plantation about a month before her wedding. We were able to focus on getting most of our photos inside to avoid the heat. 🙂 PHEW!

The guys got ready at Berry’s Chapel and joined us over at Owen Chapel right before the Ceremony.

The ceremony was perfect, with gorgeous music by Tim Kampen Strings and after the deal was sealed with a kiss it seemed that in the blink of an eye, the guests were off to The McConnell House, while the family, wedding party and I stayed behind to grab the formal photos and portraits of the Bride + Groom.

When we arrived to McConnell House, there was a grand entrance up the staircase and then FOOD.  Delicious food!!!

After mingling with all of their wedding guests, it was time for the sparkler exit and even though it was raining, we were able to fit on the porch and make the sparkler exit PERFECT!

Huge thanks to John Yates of Celladora Wedding Photography for second shooting and Michelle Stone Photography for assisting.
