Real wedding - Amanda and Austin in Nashville, Tennessee
When photographer Austin Gros and hair and makeup artist Amanda Gros got married in Nashville, they used the setting of Bloomsbury Farm to influence and inform their wedding planning decisions. The result? A beautiful, earthy, outdoors ceremony and reception, captured by Erich McVey. Using the rustic feel of Bloomsbury's pavilion, Amanda worked with floral designer Jessica Sloane to create the incredible reception surroundings you see below - lots of greenery combined with beautiful flowers and gorgeous homely touches (can you believe Amanda's mother designed the invitations and paper?).
When we saw these photographs, we were blown away - this wedding had it all! From dogs to a brass band, a taco truck to cold beers, kids dancing by candlelight to photographs in the rain. Yes, you read right, they took their photographs in the rain and returned to the reception "soaking wet but not a care in the world", says Amanda. We hope you love this pair as much as we do (and do take the time to watch the wedding video; we defy you not to get a little teary!).
