Red River Farms: Sam and Caleb
Remember Sam and Caleb? You know, the really cool couple who had their engagement session at the Downtown Antique Mall in Nashville? Well, they did it! They got married at the Red River Farms wedding venue in Springfield, TN, and it was grand!
RED RIVER FARMS WEDDING
Located right off of Draper Rd in Springfield, TN, Red River Farms is a unique barn venue owned by the wonderful Margo and Tyler.
When they first opened the barn, they were unsure if they wanted to use the space for weddings, but after several brides saw just how beautifully the light poured through the barn and how rich the land was, they opened up their piece of home to the public.
Which means they opened it up to my wonderful friends (and clients), Sam and Caleb!
(A side note about how wonderful Margot and Tyler are, they open their barn to engaged couples each year and host a bridal show to help their brides find the perfect vendors for their wedding!)
Leading up to the wedding Sam and Caleb told me over and over how excited they were for the wedding simply because of the venue (though their sights were fixed on the marriage). When I finally saw the venue for myself, I was floored!
As beautiful as the venue was, it did not compare to Sam on the day of their wedding, and seeing her was something Caleb could hardly wait for.
THE FIRST LOOK
There are so many perks to being the photographer on a wedding. The number one perk, in my opinion, is getting to witness all of the intimate moments.
Specifically, the first look.
While Caleb and I were walking to the location of the first look, he was joking (I think) about remembering not to lock his knees! It was evident the anxiety of seeing Sam in her wedding dress had him so excited and so nervous.
Sam felt the same, getting ready to see her future husband. The frenzy of emotion was felt as they neared each other, but once Caleb turned to face his bride, all anxiety seemed to melt away.
With all anxiety gone, Sam and Caleb were ready to get married, and to start their new lives together as husband and wife.
Sam and Caleb had such a beautiful day, and I can honestly say that the team of vendors who worked together to help make their dream wedding come true were all wonderful!
Thank you vendors for everything you do!
