Grace and Ben, Ten Oak Ballroom Wedding

There were just smiles, excitement and deep breaths of “taking it all in” on Grace and Ben’s wedding day. From getting ready to the different ceremonies (traditional and Korean) to the reception at Ten Oak Ballroom…each and every moment was just beautiful. I found myself going through their pictures just smiling the whole time. Grace and Ben are one of those beautiful couples that make you feel like you could be really great friends immediately. They laugh a lot, truly care about each other and are so in love.  My favorite types of weddings are ones where there is such a strong family connection and this was one of them. On both sides, the families were so happy and it was a true celebration. Grace and Ben, I hope you all can relive your day a bit through these photos and just remember how happy you were in that moment. Thank you so much for letting me capture it for you!
The excitement on Morgan’s face says it all!It was a cold December day and it had just snowed…so we even got some snow on the ground for the pictures.  The fur that Grace is wearing was Ben’s grandmother’s and it was absolutely gorgeous and perfectly fitting for a winter wedding!While I was hanging out with the girls at the hotel, my second shooter Michelle was taking the guy’s portraits at the church.  Love the baby’s breath in Grace’s hair.  This elegant up-do was done by Candace with Down the Aisle in Style…I loved how it still felt like her hair was down, so pretty!Not going to lie it got pretty busy very quickly before the ceremony but Grace and Ben really wanted to have a moment alone together before the ceremony began.  They had written notes to each other and wanted to just take in the moment before they got married without seeing each other.  This was literally minutes before the ceremony and it was in the church basement, but I love that we still got to do it!  It was such a special moment that they got to share.  Time to get married!  Aren’t these flower girls the cutest??Not sure which picture I like better, Grace looking at her mom and crying or Grace looking at Ben and crying!Since Grace and Ben met in Hawaii they exchanged Hawaiian leis after their vows, I love this personal touch!To date this was the fastest I’ve ever done portraits!  All the family portraits, bridal party, and bride and groom portraits were done in about 40 minutes!  Grace and Ben were on a tight schedule because they had to change for the Korean ceremony which took place right afterwards.  If you’ve never witnessed a Paebaek Ceremony, it is really neat!  Lots of cool Korean traditions make up the ceremony.  The reception was at Ten Oaks Ballroom in Clarksville.  I have to give a shoutout to Stacey of Events by Stace for her mad day of coordinating skills.  She was amazing to work with and I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a coordinator/wedding planner!Always love a good entrance!Sandy, Grace’s sister (and my good friend, hi Sandy!!) played and sang their first dance song.  It was just beautiful!When you get to cut the cake with a sword and your grandmother’s cake knife!Take a look how Morgan steals this bouquet from Ben’s grandmother!  Hahah…it was epic!  The next set are some of my favorites!Thank you so much to the vendors who made this wedding possible!

  • teri - So much to say about this one! First – I love that they kept their wedding party small – it makes is so much more intimate! Exchanging Hawaiian leis is such a fun way to make their ceremony personal! I’ve never seen a Korean ceremony before – so much color & detail! Beautiful images!ReplyCancel
