Glam & Jewel Tones Winter Wedding at aVenue- Sasha & Darian


I met Sasha when I photographed Erin & Victor's wedding. At every wedding there is one person other than the bride and groom that you find yourself photographing a lot because they just have that something and they photograph beautifully. You end up photographing them so much that you have stop yourself from taking too many of them...which tends to make look like a stalker. Sasha was that person that day. So when she and Darian contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was thrilled. Sasha and Darian quickly became some of my favorite people. I could talk to them for hours. They are so much fun and have such wonderful hearts (Sasha is a hospice/palliative care physician) that you can't help but love them. 

Sasha and Darian's wedding was my first wedding of 2016 and it was gorgeous. It was a surprisingly warm February day in Nashville and we took full advantage of it. Their decor for their winter wedding had rich jewel tones mixed with gold sequins, chandeliers and candelabras. Family is very important to them and they added touches of family heirlooms and memories throughout their venue, aVenue, by using things like family furniture and serving lemonade at dinner from an aunt's special recipe. Darian's mother passed away several years ago and they included her in the ceremony and reception by having a chair reserved for her and placing a framed photograph of her in the chair. They had the band play a special song in memory of her and even I started crying. Please enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
