I told the groom that I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to a wedding more than this one. I’ve known Chuck and Diana for less than a year, but sometimes you just click with people and feel close to them instantly. I’m so blessed that I got to photograph their wedding last month. It was one for the record books. There haven’t been many weddings at Puckett’s in downtown Franklin, but these two have the inside connection. Their ceremony was very sweet and we were surrounded by loving friends and family. The perfect end to the night was a set by The Bicho Brothers followed by a jam session with many of the incredibly talented musicians in the Nashville area. It was a night I will always remember. Thank you Chuck and Diana for your friendship and allowing me to be a part of your day.

Often I am surprised and always I am thankful that Jonathan and I get to be a part of these special moments in people’s lives. Especially went it involves something as fun as Ryan & Cassandra’s New Year’s eve wedding and party! For Cassandra, the preparations began months and months ago. She planned and organized and even blogged about the details and they came together flawlessly. And finally the big day was here. The girls prepped for the day… hair, makeup, champagne, a movie and conversation. The guys… well, Jonathan was sworn to secrecy so I guess we’ll never know what we can’t tell from the photos
The beautiful ceremony was held at Cassandra’s grandparents church in Old Hickory and officiated by her grandfather. Ryan kissed the bride and then it was time to party! The reception was a blast complete with party hats for guests, a count down to the new year at midnight, and lots and lots of dancing. Thank you Ryan & Cassandra for letting us be a part of this day. We truly wish you guys a lifetime of happiness together.
It couldn’t of been a more beautiful October day for Richard & Ginger to become man and wife. The day started at a salon in Hendersonville where Ginger and her bridesmaids began to prepare for the day. We spent several hours hanging out with girls and got to witness what a very special time it was between the ladies. They wrote speeches, discussed the events of the day, talked about what Richard and the boys were probably doing and really seemed to enjoy each others company. We then headed over to the Cragfont Mansion in Castalian Springs to prepare for the ceremony where the girls stayed hidden until it was time.
It was a lovely, peaceful outdoor ceremony and Ginger looked stunning in her wedding dress. After many hugs and congratulations to the new couple, everyone headed to the Bluegrass Country Club in Hendersonville for the reception. The venue was gorgeous and we could tell how much thought and preparation went into planning the entire day. Richard gave what is hands-down the most heart-felt speech we’ve had the pleasure of hearing to date. You’re the man Richard! We can’t put into words what a great time we had getting to know this loving family and we feel blessed to have been a part of Richard & Ginger’s wedding. We wish you all the best!!
If you haven’t already seen them or you just can’t get enough of these two, be sure to check out Richard & Ginger’s engagement photos which were shot at Richard’s parent’s home in Gallatin.
Nikki and Brandon were married at the incredible Rose Mont historical home in Gallatin, TN last Saturday. The weather forecast was calling for rain, but God had other plans. Blue skies prevailed and the day couldn’t have been better. They had a beautiful ceremony on the front porch of the home and then moved to the back for a great reception with friends and family. A highlight of the day was when Nikki arrived at the end of the aisle in an antique Plymouth convertible. The crowd gasped and even though I (B.F.) knew it was coming, it caused me to well up with tears. Nikki and Brandon, if you guys are reading this from your honeymoon, we hope you are having a blast and enjoy the photos. We truly enjoyed being a part of your wedding.

The day started early, at 7am.
Searching for the best light to do Nikki’s makeup, Nikki & her friend & makeup artist found the perfect setting on the balcony of the old home.
You might remember Allyson and Branch from their fun-filled, extra goofy engagement photos we shot in Nashville back in July. Well those two had the incredible idea to jet-set off to the Bahamas to get married this month. While we didn’t get to hide ourselves in their luggage and shoot for them there, we did get to capture their reception party at Belle Meade Plantation last Friday night. Allyson spent a lot of time and energy putting together all of the beautiful details that made the reception one to remember. From the minute Branch pulled up in his truck with the windows down and M. J. blasting, til everyone loaded up into limos for the after party, it is safe to say that everyone had a great time. Thanks for letting us be a part of it guys!!
