A Washington DC Wedding in Nashville, TN

by Jody on October 26, 2009, posted in Featured Weddings

Meet Ben & Mary- A super fun couple from the DC area who not only are great people and like to enjoy life, but they love for others around them to have a great time as well!  For Ben & Mary’s wedding we were working with a great team of people that day from amazing Nashville wedding planner, Mary Natalie (Weddings by Mary Natalie),  to Erin at the downtown Nashville wedding reception Loews Vanderbilt who is as professional as they come, to the phenomenal performer and band Super-T.

Check out some shots from the day!! **To be notified when Ben & Mary’s image are online and available for viewing and purchasing, sign up for their online gallery here.

The ceremony was beautiful and Mary’s dad wore a traditional kilt to keep with his roots.

They had a great bagpipe player walk them back down the isle. Really unique!!

Something else unique that Ben & Mary fit into their wedding day was a 2-hour block after the ceremony to hang with their bridal party and shoot around Nashville! It was awesome!!

They wanted a shot with the Nashville skyline, so we delivered! :)

While shooting everyone, we grabbed some more shots of the bride and groom alone. It was a perfect day and perfect weather!  Thank-you Lord for no rain!

Then it was off to Loews Vanderbilt for the wedding reception! The room looked great and the Ben & Mary had a guest book especially made for them out of a giant TN Jack whiskey barrel. How cool is that?

The first dance was really romantic.  You could tell how Ben & Mary were so excited to be with each other!

Something else unique was that the bride and groom had the amazing Super-T band out to perform at the wedding reception.  If you have not heard of Super-T then you are missing OUT!  Talk about one of the best bands and entertainers we have had the privilege of shooting at a reception.  Super T is well known and respected not only in the music circles but has been in the public eye often including performing for the First Family (again) at Jenna Bush’s Wedding Reception last year.

Tyrone Smith (aka Super-T) knows how to entertain and get the crowd going.  As soon as the band began to play everyone hit the dance floor and it was on! It was a sight to see!

Super-T then goes back about 2/3rds way through the show and comes out wearing his Super-T costume with blue tights and all! It is awesome! He is a dancing machine!!
