Ann and Austin exchanged vows in the Scarritt Bennett Wightman Chapel and celebrated the wedding in Cheekwood Gardens at the Frist Learning courtyard, both stunning settings for their classic and chic style. Read along to see the beautiful backdrops these venues had in their stunning photos!
Ann and her bridesmaids shared a pre-getting ready brunch, where they all met up and enjoyed a yummy meal before their glam started for the big day! The girls matched in all black lounge wear to keep with the color scheme, so timeless.
Ann’s dress was a form fitting drop V-neck, she had a beautiful pearl covered cape that worked as a perfect accessory to her stunning dress.
Once Ann was all buttoned in, she shared an incredible moment with her bridesmaids by having a reveal with them. She kept all of their dresses to stick to the elegant style of a formal black long dress. Though they were all different styles, they went seamlessly together and helped tie in a classic modern vibe.
Austin had a traditional black and white combo for his suit. His guys were all dressed in the same, perfect accents to all of the girls and Austin’s beautiful bride!
Faux First Look
Ann decided she wanted to play a prank on Austin by sending in best man, Clyde. All set and ready for their first look, Austin was anxiously awaiting his bride and was shocked to see that she wasn’t the one standing behind him… LOL.
Once laughs settled with Clyde, Ann was sent in for Ann and Austin’s actual first look, it was a much sweeter moment and you can see all the love they have for each other. Ann gave Austin a twirl to show off her dress, so precious!
Bride and Groom Photos
These Bride and groom photos are jaw dropping. The sophistication these photos embody is so fun! Both venues had the perfect backdrops for this beautiful bride and groom and the aesthetic they were going for.
The fairytale movement Ann had with her dress and cape is so eye capturing!
Such sweet moments, we couldn’t get enough! Ann and Austin had a lot of beautiful photos that aren’t traditional style portraits, they had fun movement and angles to play with.
The archways in the Cheekwood Gardens have the perfect scene for the true classic romantic. You can’t get enough!

Wedding Reception Highlights
Entering in the newly Mr. and Mrs. Chapman! Ann switched up her look a little to be able to dance the night away. She put her hair back into a sophisticated ponytail and detached her cape. They went right into their first dance to “More” by Bobby Darin.
Following the first dance, Ann and Austin shared their parent dances by dancing to the same song “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison, this was sweet as they all danced alongside each other.
After their dances, Ann’s father welcomed guests after the dances and gave a blessing for the reception to officially get started! The bride and groom headed over to the cake table to cut the cake!
