Last year we shot the beautiful wedding of Alexis Lempke and Abdul Anbari (at CJ’s Off the Square!) who are now expecting their first child (yay!) and this year we had the privilege of shooting her sister’s wedding – Laura Lempke. We love the Lempke ladies (all artists and business owners of Adornments – custom jewelry, art, and invitations) and were glad to once again, be a part of a big day of their lives!
Sadly, it was raining all day which put a wrench in not only the wedding plans but of course, in the photography as well, but good thing they had an awesome group of wedding professionals who pulled off the day flawlessly. One of those professionals was the AMAZING Amy Parman of Williamson County Weddings and Events. We cannot rave enough about the professionalism that Amy and her team bring to a wedding. If Amy was not there the wedding would have been up a creek without a paddle. We cannot stress enough to brides how important it is to have a wedding planner/coordinator. You never know what may come up and the last thing you want to be worrying about on your wedding day is handing things of the last minute changes that come up.
Anyway, enjoy some images from their wedding day!!!
So the pouring rain dampened any opportunity for shooting outside, but luckily all the girls were getting ready in the Hilton hotel downtown Nashville and we made use of their beautiful lobby for the girl’s shots! :)
Laura is an artist and does amazing work, (see on the Adornments‘ website) and she designed her wedding cake! Up close you can see leaf imprints in the fondant. So cool!
