Stones River Country Club

This couple may have gotten married in a church in Murfreesboro, but the bulk of their day was spent at Stones River Country Club. I’m so very thankful for this because Stones River Country Club offered a variety of portrait options while it rained outside. It also provided an awning to pull a car under to load and unload plus tons of great tree coverage that, during a drizzle, acted as a giant umbrella for the whole group. You’ll also notice that most of Morgan’s photos were taken inside. There was a beautiful window with a neutral backdrop that I used for a lot of the morning. Then, the foyer to the main building had two grand staircases that offered a beautiful composition. Of course, I can’t forget that trusty awning that not only allowed for outdoor portraits, but also protection from the rain as we loaded all the bridesmaids into the right cars.

Thankfully, though, by the time we got from Stones River Country Club to the church, it had stopped raining, and it didn’t rain again until after dark. This change in weather allowed for two of my favorite parts of the day. 1) The bubble exit from the church. I love when couples do this because it makes for really adorable pictures. It also is daylight still and has better lighting. Plus, you have ALL your guests participate before they consume any alcoholic beverages at the reception ;-). 2) Their vintage police getaway car. I have photographed a ton of cars in my day, but never a vintage police car. With the siren in tact might I add. Morgan and Chris did not do a first look, which meant they rode separately with their bridal party to the church. Afterwards, they obviously wanted to ride together but didn’t have a car. In comes the vintage police car. It not only transferred them from ceremony to reception, but it also acted as a great prop for both the videographer and myself. One of my favorite portraits from the day is Chris helping Morgan out of the car once they arrived at the reception.

Anywho…I think this is the 5th purple wedding I’ve photographed this year, and I hope you love it just as much as you loved the others!
