From the bride: 14 years ago we saw each other across a crowded room. I was 18 and he was 20. It took some encouragement from my friend Sara to walk up to him and introduce myself. So like a gentlemen one week later he called my dad and asked to take me on a date. We were so nervous. We maybe said one sentence to each other. I was crazy about him! Months went by and I was about to graduate and he was going to move. We promised to keep in touch and went our separate ways. We always had each other’s back. We always had a feeling that we would get back together. So when he called almost three years ago and said he would like to visit me in Nashville, I thought okay, here we go! And here we are.
It was the Sunday on Labor Day weekend. We were at our house just relaxing. Chris said "Why don't come here and sit in this chair. And I looked at him like okay. The chair was the first piece of furniture my grandparent’s bought when they got married. So I sat down and he started saying lots of sweet things but I don't remember them. Then he said "would you marry me" and I started crying and jumping up and down and dancing!

About their engagement session:
First Wendy is amazing! I have always loved the 40’s, 50's and because of the feel of my weeding we all knew it needed to be a retro look. Everything was perfect! Hair, location, design, photographer! Wendy did such a great job at making us feel comfortable and we had so much fun! We couldn’t be happier with the pictures!
