Samantha and Justin had a Stone Gate Farm wedding this past Friday in Murfreesboro, TN. I can’t say I’ve ever had this happen before, but both Samantha and Justin have the same last name. Wright. They had the same last name before they ever even met. How convenient, and how much easier it is for Samantha that she doesn’t even really need to change her name 😂 It wasn’t until her bridal session that I learned they also share the same birthday. So bizarre, right?!
One of my favorite parts of this Stone Gate Farm wedding day was golden hour. There is this sweet spot in the fall where normal ceremony times bump perfectly up against sunset, and you get to do photos after the ceremony in the most beautiful lighting. This was the case this past Friday, and oh my word was the lighting perfect. Really, the whole ceremony had fabulous lighting, and afterwards, when I took just the couple out, I was walking on cloud nine. You’ll see as you start scrolling. It’s so dreamy.
Another favorite part though was seeing how Samantha and Justin loved each other’s kiddos. Samantha has three kids, and Justin has one. Honestly, if I didn’t know they were from past marriages, I would have assumed they were biologically related to Samantha and Justin because of the way they love all the kids. It is precious. Not that parents plan for a divorce when they get married, but if you have one, this is the kind of relationship you want after. Something fluid and seamless, and the love is unending and evident from all sides.
I’m so thankful Samantha and Justin had me as part of their Stone Gate Farm wedding. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I’m so thrilled to share these photos with them!
