Nashville bowling alley elopement shoot
How about a super fun e-sesh for you on this Friday?! We’re not sure if it’s the retro vibes, Leslie + Ryan’s impeccable style, or photog Jessie Holloway’s incredible work that sealed the deal for us, but when we saw this Nashville shoot in the 100lc inbox, it was an instant fave. L + R had their venue picked out – one of their favorite music spots, the Ryman Auditorium – but since they couldn’t do elopement photos there, they scouted out other locations in the city, and decided on Pinewood Social.
Okay, this is just too cute.
A little backstory… Leslie is from London & Ryan is from Paris. Of course that is London, KY and Paris, TN. We didn’t date right away but became long distance friends. Leslie moved to Nashville, which led to us dating, which led to getting engaged and then married… We wanted to keep our wedding small, so small that it was just the two of us and a preacher during a tour of the Ryman Auditorium.
The full can-art eagle wall and exposed brick gave off some rad vintage vibes… Plus they got to bowl and enjoy a drink, too. Sweet deal, yes?
We could not have made a better choice than Jessie. She was laidback, comfortable to talk to, had great ideas for photos and it shows in her work.
Congrats Ryan and Leslie! Such fun photos!
