A Sneak Peek of Ashley & Trevor’s Nashville Wedding!

by Jody on November 24, 2008, posted in Featured Weddings

We were hoping for Saturday’s wedding that our bride Ashley would bring some of the California sunshine with her, but instead we got some nice and chilly Irish weather! The day was still beautiful with the remains of the fall season still lingering, and we now have another couple who have joined the Married Couples Club. :)


Enjoy a few quick shots that we pulled out!

All the groomsmen rockin it!

Mud + Stuck Jeep + Two Manly Men = Unstuck Vehicle!

by Jody on November 21, 2008, posted in Personal Fun

We have this couple friend we were hanging out with the other night at Starbucks and the guy just happened to mention that he was out riding his jeep and got it stuck in a rut on some trails they were on. The rut was so deep that the mud came all the way up underneath the jeep burying the axle and no truck company in the Nashville area would come and tow him out! Zach, being the clean freak that he is, offered to get down and dirty and help dig it out in the morning…

No more truck..

After a wash in the lake…


This weekend we are shooting the wedding of Ashley & Trevor! Ashley hails from California and Trevor is from Ireland! The rehearsal will be our first time meeting Trevor and we are excited!



Congrats Lee & Elisabeth!!!!!!!!!!!

We feel like we say this about all the couples we work with, but Lee & Elisabeth are truly an amazing and kind couple!! Their families were great to be around as well and we are soooooooo pumped that we were able to get to know them and be there for their wedding!

On Monday on their way to Barbados for their honeymoon we received this text from them, “Once again, u guys are phenomenal!!! Thanks for Everything. Love Lee & Elisabeth.” These guys planned so much for their wedding and we are so excited that they are relaxing and enjoying the beach and all else that Barbados has to offer.

You guys are the best!! Can’t wait to see you when you get back!!

A few vendor Shout Outs:

The flowers & reception decor were done by Rhonda with Rhonda Patton Weddings!
The awesome cake was done by Signature Cakes by Vicki.


It Runs in the Family…

by Jody on November 18, 2008, posted in Personal Fun

Ok, bloggers…

We were kind…

We were generous…

We shared what a great “blessing” it was to have Jody’s sister Kelly and her friend stay with us…

BUT as Jody was looking around on Facebook, this is what we came across on Kelly’s page!!!!

For those who are a bit unsure what you are looking at… this Is Jess & Kell in OUR living room, standing on our NICE couches, PICKING our noses on the EXPENSIVE canvas we have hanging on our wall! Shame…

Ok, it actually had us both laughing pretty hard… Now I know where Jody definitely gets her craziness from… it runs in the family…

(Speaking of FaceBook – for those of you who have it and aren’t friends already, find us (well, Jody) under ‘Jody Brouillet Gray’)


Mission Accomplished: Studio Warming Party

by Jody on November 17, 2008, posted in Behind the Scenes,Personal Fun

What a great, busy weekend! So busy that after posting this blog we are taking the day off because we need some non-work time of hanging out! :)

Saturday we had the wedding of Lee & Elisabeth (photos coming!), and yesterday we had our studio warming party!! The 4 hour event started at 2 and it was great to see so many of you! Enjoy a couple photos… we also meant to take a photo of the front of the studio outside, but alas, you will have to do without!

As mentioned we had cute little cupcakes from Cakes By Shara!

Also look at these cute napkins provided by the awesome ladies at Williamson County Weddings and Events! Aren’t they fun? I want to frame one or something but Zach won’t let me ;o) And a thanks to the sweet Katie Brooks, one of our former brides, who came and brought additional food for us that she made!!

Thanks to all of you who came out – such a variety of people! Good friends, past brides, new brides, blog stalkers, people from when I (Jody) used to have a “real” job ;o), friends from 94 FM The Fish when I interned there 4 or so years ago, awesome wedding coordinators, other wedding vendors, and of course fellow photographer friends. For those who were unable to make it – we missed you!

A special thanks to my sister who was also in town with a friend – both desperately needing a break from college. Thanks for the coffee runs you girls made and all the help! It was nice having some other girls in the house to hang and be girly with! Thanks Cuties!

L to R: Jody, sister Kelly, awesome friend Jessica

Glad we were able to see so many of you yesterday! Enjoy your week!
