Elizabeth, at heart, is a true Southern Girl with northern roots. She and Andy were living and working in Nashville when they met, to discover that Elizabeth was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the same city in which Andy attended college. It’s a small world, but Elizabeth and Andy‘s instant connection grew into large love and a lifetime commitment.

When planning their June 9 wedding, Elizabeth and Andy had no idea that his career with the Nashville Predators Hockey Team would threatened to postpone their nuptials with just one more win in the finals. (Safe to say that was one lost game that didn’t sting as much as usual!)  Elizabeth says she and Andy chose Cedarwood as their venue because it matched the down-home-country chic style they were looking for. They wanted a country-inspired celebration that was relaxed and outside so family and friends could enjoy each other’s company and take in the full magnitude of Tennessee’s beauty.

To personalize their union, Elizabeth wore a ring from Andy’s family and Andy’s wedding ring was his father’s. Elizabeth pinned a piece of fabric from her beloved grandmother inside her dress and Andy dedicated his groom’s cake to his late father, with a quote he was known to say at family weddings. Pies from the Amish Feed Mill replaced wedding cake, and Elizabeth and Andy wrote letters to each other the night before their wedding and during their ceremony nailed them inside a wooden box, along with a bottle of wine, to be opened on their 10th anniversary. One of the most poignant moments was Elizabeth and Andy’s “no-look” meeting on the front lawn before the ceremony. We are delighted that Kristyn Hogan was capturing it all in these stunning wedding day photographs.

Congratulations Elizabeth and Andy! We wish you a lifetime of happy moments. Our gratitude to Kristyn Hogan for always being such a great person to work with (you too Matt!) and for sharing your work so promptly!  And to Delightfully Engaged for selecting this wedding as a feature on your national blog.  And to Love and Lavender, too, for your feature! xoxo
