Modern + Industrial Tennessee Wedding | The Batallers
Industrial + Romantic Bridal Portraits
Every little thing about this day… the friends + family of the couple, the blanketing presence of the Lord, the whispered prayers, the simply-sweet decor touches, and of course, the couple themselves— it was all gold. I found myself multiple times throughout the progression of their big day brushing warm tears from my cheeks. It was stunning.
And let me just say, I’m honored. So honored that I’ve been invited to capture some of life’s most sacred moments.
Tucked away in the Tennessee town of Shelbyville, Jenna and Lee got married at Gateway Church (where they both serve in leading worship). You can only imagine how that aspect of their relationship was incorporated into their wedding… worshipful and anointed, indeed. Between every break in the day, I found Jenna + Lee soaking up every moment, thanking God, and celebrating love with their friends and family. I think the thing that stirred me to my core was the hope I saw myself carrying home with me after shooting this wedding. A great hope and belief in God’s faithfulness. A great hope in His kindness to give us the desires of our hearts. A longing hope to one day experience a unique and beautiful love with my own husband and friends + family. It was all beautiful… and I know that everyone that had the honor of being a part of the day would agree. Just beautiful.
My Current Favorites + Exciting Announcement
Jenna’s beauty simply radiates from the inside-out... making her bridal portrait session in Murfreesboro, TN all things stunning. With bright white clouds blanketing the sky and the best company (shoutout to mom + sis), magic happened.
Jenna, thank you for trusting me to capture one of the most sacred seasons of your life… one that brimmed with excitement + expectancy as you were about to enter into the most beautiful covenant of marriage with your fiancé.
And to Jenna’s family + friends — you all are precious to me. Thank you for your continual love, support, encouragement, and embrace as I get to document what feels like so many moments for you all. It because of cheerleaders like you all that continually affirm God’s grace over my life that I keep going… knowing He’s before me.
Enjoy these, friends xx
I’m totally being one of those gals that lists out my top favorites as of recently. I’m not one to think that everyone is interested in my life and opinions, but I do thoroughly enjoy reading through other peoples’ current favorites. So why the heck not let you people into my world of “I LOVE THIS SO MUCH” … enjoy xx.
No, I’m not talking about rolling around on the floor with your face pressed to the hardwoods. I’m referencing the amazing little tool known as a jade roller. These bad boys have been around for centuries and have been staples in the Chinese medicinal arena. I’ll be honest here— it’s pretty common that I wake up with a swollen face… like, I put my finger to my cheek and it’s trampoline consistency. This is where my good friend, Mr. Jade-Roller, comes to the rescue. Just by simply rolling this Amazon-bought device around my face, I’m not only serving myself a quick massage, but I’m also clearing fluid, boosting circulation, improving elasticity, and promoting cell turnover for a brighter look in my face.
