When I’m with you, I’m no longer wandering
When I’m with you, I swear I can breathe
When I’m with you, I know who I am and who I want to be
-Ben Rector // When I’m With You
It had rained for a full week in April leading up to Carmen + David’s day. But, the clouds pulled away and their wedding day was nothing but beautiful sunshine, a slight breeze and the perfect temperature. Not to mention the beautiful timing of the spring blooms and Dogwoods all over the church property. They didn’t see each other before the ceremony, and Carmen mentioned that she’d hope she’d see some emotion from David coming down the aisle and wasn’t sure what to expect he’d do.
Well, she got exactly what she hoped for as David had the sweetest reaction as the doors swung open and Carmen walked her way towards him. They had a simple church ceremony that was reminiscent of an outdoor ceremony, as Vine Street Christian Church allows for a flood of daylight within the sanctuary.
Their reception followed at Travellers Rest where they had a quintessential Nashville + southern meal from the Loveless. The room was full of joy and energy the moment they entered and the dance floor stayed completely full from the moment it opened. I’m not sure I’d ever seen a couple dance that long on the dance floor and it was great to see them simply enjoying themselves and the day they had planned for for so long….and they never left each other’s side.
