Lost River Cave

There is a romantic eeriness about caves. Yes, something strange and frightening about going down into the earth surrounded by rock walls into natural halls that have been carved out over centuries by underground rivers. Formations of stalactites and stalagmites decorating the neutral interior create a natural Feng Shui as the path winds through this cavity in the earth. Yet, there exists a quiet, peacefulness that allows a place of refuge for awhile.

Kari and Nick chose Lost River Cave for their ceremony and reception. White chairs on the banks of the river, created an aisle for Kari's entrance. The wooded area provided a natural cathedral for this real life fairy tale.  After portraits, the couple made their grand entrance into the historic Cavern Nite Club, located in one of the largest cave entrance areas in the United States. The up-lighting on the cave walls added charm and elegance. When Nick took Kari into his arms for the first dance, there was magic in the air. It was obvious they were meant only for each other forever. After dinner and visiting with guests the couple moved to the cake table and put on bibs! There were lots of giggles and laughter as these two weren't afraid to get a little messy with the traditional 'feeding of the cake.' Then there was dancing! Congratulations Kari and Nick!!! 

Samantha and Corey

Okay, I'm a little behind on blogging (like a year and 3 months!!) but seriously this was an amazing day and deserves a highlight. Samantha and Corey's wedding day was beautiful! They chose Opryland Hotel for their venue. The Bridal suite overlooked the conservatory from the top floor and offered tons of ambiance and natural light. The day was full of smiles as Samantha and her Dad walked through the garden to the Gazebo. Corey and Samantha exchanged vows with family and friends in attendance. After formal portraits, Corey and Samantha enjoyed romantic moments by the waterfalls for a few images before their Grand Entrance into the Magnolia Ballroom. Check out their wedding day. Congratulations Samantha and Corey.
