Aubrey and Nathan became sweethearts during college at Lipscomb University in Nashville. Then it was graduation, engagement, and off to Memphis, where Nathan started medical school at the University of Tennessee, and Aubrey began working as a NICU nurse at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital. When it came to planning their wedding, they picked an auspicious date – June 5, 2015 – exactly 2 ½ years from their first date! Aubrey says, “I’ve always pictured an outdoor wedding at somewhere with a barn. We loved the beauty of Cedarwood as a wedding venue, and also loved how welcoming and flexible the Cedarwood event team was in helping us personalize our day. We wanted our wedding to feel joyous, relaxed and comfortable for everyone. During our ceremony, we took communion and joined guests in a special time of prayer because we know the power of prayer and want to reflect God at the center of our relationship. At the end of the day, it was about reflecting our love for each other and our southern roots in a chic romantic way.”
One unique aspect to Aubrey and Nathan’s day was their “Us” table with photos and items that represent their relationship, fun, work, and missions trips to Honduras and Africa. They also created a “Meet our Wedding Party” display introducing bridesmaids and groomsmen. Aubrey says, “Our friends are so important to us, and they have all played integral roles in who we are today and in our relationship.” Aubrey and Nathan met at the Cedar “treehouse” for private pre-ceremony time, and to honor each other with a foot washing ceremony. The events and emotions of the day were beautifully captured by Justin Wright Photography – enjoy!
Congratulations Aubrey and Nathan! May you live inspired each day by the love you share. Thanks Justin Wright Photography, for sharing your work with us.
