Who says true love can’t come from reality TV? Well, I never said it but I definitely thought it. Or at least I did before hearing their story. While this couple may not have been on the same show, the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” alumni met in 2010 and then reconnected at a charity event in early 2013 and the rest is history. Words cannot express how lucky I was to be able to photograph the sweet backyard wedding of Elizabeth Kitt + Ty Brown. Not having the opportunity to meet them in person before the day of the wedding, I was struck with their kindness and warmth- they instantly put me at ease, which is a strange reversal of roles for me as a wedding photographer- I am normally the one trying to do that for the Bride and Groom. 🙂 Family, close friends, and their yellow lab were in attendance as they exchanged their own heartfelt vows with tears and laughter. Afterwards, everyone gathered around a bonfire and Ty played and sang for everyone. When I lived in NYC, I loved photographing weddings there. But this one felt like home and was another reminder of how grateful I am to be in Nashville. Congratulations Elizabeth + Ty! It was SUCH a pleasure working with y’all.
This moment deserves not one, but 3 full images… I confess I teared up too.
This is one of the most responsible flower girls I have ever seen- she took to the task of cleaning up her flower petals!
