You may remember Kristin and Read from their adorable Nashville engagement session last winter. These two met at an ice breaker during orientation at Belmont University, started dating as freshmen, and began living out their own little happily ever after.

Read proposed to Kristin in his home state of Texas in 2010 shortly after their graduation, and it seems like I have been anticipating this wedding for an eternity! Kristin is one of my dearest friends from college, and I was so honored that she invited us to photograph the most important day of her life.

It was a day full of beauty, emotion, and a whole bunch of fun, and now I'm thrilled to share with you a little recap of their lovely event...

When all of your groomsmen are musicians, you never have to worry about them being camera shy. Be sure to check out the groom's band - The Westbound Rangers.

The bride got ready and had photos taken at the home she grew up in, which was just the sweetest thing. Kristin - you are absolutely ridiculously STUNNING and probably one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out!

The new Mr. and Mrs. looked like royalty making their grand entrance to the reception.

Read surprised Kristin with a Texas two-step as their first dance as husband and wife, followed by an emotion-filled father/daughter dance that didn't leave a dry eye in the house.

To pay homage to her Greek heritage, Kristin knew there had to be Greek dancing at her reception... so much fun! OPA!
