Is there any way an outdoor Southern wedding, photographed by Brandon Chesbro wouldn’t come out crazy romantic and beautiful? Probs not. According to Emily, their wedding was close to perfect (had it not rained the morning of), but really, just look at the setting. The willow tree they got married under is gorgeous enough, and the soft and muted colors Jessica Sloane worked with created a simple elegance that we’re absolutely loving.

We had a string quartet play during the ceremony. It was a special moment walking down the aisle with my dad to one of my favorite instrumental songs that he wrote.

Overall, when I think back on my wedding I wouldn’t change one thing. I am so thankful that I had a lot of help, especially from my mom and Jessica. And I am also so grateful to have beautiful documentation of the entire thing by my photographer, Brandon Chesbro and videographer, Needle and Thread Media. It was a wonderful day from start to finish.

The first scene in their wedding video of Sam getting teary eyes totally tugged at our heart strings…

Congrats you two!

The pictures look amazing! Where was the venue where you got married under the willow tree? My friend wants to get married under a willow tree and is finding it hard finding appropriate venues!
