The Lanning Farm is nestled in South Nashville, in a town called Christiana. Its barns and buildings sit on a beautiful section of rolling land where the sunset hits just right. It was my first time photographing this venue, and I had such a wonderful time. Kenya and JT really put together an all-star vendor team (see who below!).
Kenya and my sister met at work a few years ago, which is how Kenya and I got to know one another. She and JT are so kind and laidback, and I adored photographing their love both for engagement photos and for their very special wedding day. It was an intimate, family-oriented day filled with laughter, prayer, and happy tears. The way these two foster love in their circle is evident, and I loved getting to see it in action.
The weather cooperated with us for most of the day. If you know anything about Tennessee summers, you know they tend to be a little wet and rumbly. A patch of rain swept quickly through just before we stepped outside for portraits. Then, it was gone in a flash and left the most beautiful clouds and light behind.
With the weather concern off the table, Kenya got dressed in her gorgeous sheer-sleeved gown and her mom helped her into her grandmother’s pearls. The vintage and heartfelt touch was a perfect addition to the classic white florals and greenery beautifully provided by Morna Mae.
Thank you to Scarlett Murphy at The Lanning Farm for coordinating the day, Chloe at Morna Mae Floral & Design for whipping up the most tasteful floral pieces, The White Room for helping Kenya find her dream dress, Looks by Liz for absolutely crushing the makeup and hair, and Rick’s BBQ for feeding us all at the end of the night.
