Neely + Stevie= A Downtown Wedding

Neely and Stevie said their I Do's yesterday in downtown Murfreesboro. The sweet ceremony was held in front of the courthouse and Neely arrived with her father, Steve, in a horse drawn carriage. The Reception was held downtown as well at Bungalow Events. I was honored to cover this wedding not only because Neely and Stevie are such an awesome couple, but Neely and I go way back. Grammar school to be exact.  It is always so much fun to cover a friends wedding, especially one you have so much history with! Most of the bridesmaids and groomsmen were my classmates, which made calling role super easy and the fact that they are all so much fun made by job a breeze.  ;)  Neely was absolutely stunning and Stevie was looking mighty spiffy himself. Check out all the great photos from the day. It was truly a super fun wedding! Thanks Neely and Stevie for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Hope you are having a blast on your honeymoon! 

The love in his mother's eyes melts my heart...

 As you will see the father-daughter dance was a bit different. Neely had told me at our last meeting that she had a surprise for her Dad during their dance. She explained that they share the same taste in whiskey and thought it would be funny to cut  mid song from "Soulshine" by the Allman Brothers to "Whiskey girl" by Toby Keith. Her best friend and matron of honor, Natalie, came out and poured  both the bride and her Dad a shot of Jack Daniels. Steve's expression was priceless!

I was able to steal the couple away from the reception for a quick bit...

The night was filled with laughter, love, and dancing! This crew knew how to throw down!
