Bright Love, Good Life :: Amy+John


Cheery, vibrant colors make Amy and John even happier together.  So naturally for their wedding day design, Amy’s priority was lots of colorful flowers! Cobalt blue bridesmaids dresses and linens tempered with the softest pale yellow were infused with intense pops of colored florals.  Amy brought us her collection of blue vintage hobnail glassware to incorporate into wedding decor, and these beautiful pieces added the perfect personal touch to their reception tablescapes.

More character and color, military style, was added to the day courtesy of John’s service to the US Marine Corps….how we love a groom in uniform….and his five Captain attendants! Some of the highlights of Amy and John’s’ wedding include their sabre cake cutting ceremony and sabre arch sendoff. …and of course, there’s Amy’s precious canine bridesmaid O’Malley who traveled all the way from Seattle to take part in the wedding  …and the take home favors of Pikes Place roasted coffee that permeated the pavilion with wonderful aroma and delighted every coffee loving guest. But most of all, we remember the spark between Amy and John.  These wonderful photos by Phindy Studios are electric with love between these two.

We always find it heartwarming when a couple who courted in their early years find each other again.  Amy and John’s sweetheart days in high school and college yielded to careers on opposite shores (John as an officer in the Marine Corps and Amy finishing her training as a counseling psychologist in Seattle.) Chance placed them both in Nashville at the same time during family visits and presented an opportunity for Amy and John to reconnect.  This reunion opened a floodgate of emotions that ended in a cross-country trek from North Carolina to Washington state to be together and a May 22 hometown wedding at Cedarwood! Enjoy their love-filled, color-packed celebration.

Amy and John, may your future be bright and may your love for each other never lose it’s color! Thanks for allowing us to be part of your wedding day. And thanks to Phindy Studios for sharing your work! Hope to see you at Cedarwood again soon!
