What a beautiful emotional wedding ceremony Jeremy and Chadrick had as they recited their heartfelt vows at the Timothy Demonbruen House! When two people find each other, and their hearts become knitted into one, I am always so honored to be the one capturing those memories!
Minutes after meeting Jeremy and Chad earlier this year, I was immediately touched by their true devotion and love for each other. In fact, they are the perfect yin and yang. Jeremy’s booming Caribbean laughter and dazzling smile is perfectly complimented by Chad’s quiet, gentle, thoughful spirit. While they come from very different backgrounds, it is obvious that their souls found each other at the perfect time. As a result, every person who attended this wonderful union was bursting with happiness for them. There was certainly joy in the air!
Jeremy and Chad opted not to see each other before the ceremony, so we had to squire away each of them for separate portraits to keep the suspense in place! Each groom looked dapper and handsome in suits of all white set off with blue vests and ties. As everyone gathered on the porch prior to the ceremony, each groom hid away on either side of the home. At precisely the right moment, they appeared and walked toward each other, stopping briefly for a silent, solemn moment before climbing the stairs. The each read their heartfelt, personal vows with sincere, raw emotion. There was hardly a dry eye among the guests.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner and toasts inside, followed by music and dancing on the indoor porch. Elegant calla lillies adorned the hand-made table settings as well as the top of the cake! We also had just enough time to step out for night portraits under the twinkling lights of the gazebo. Those last moments capped off a perfect day!
The personal details at this wedding were amazing! Jeremy and Chad exchanged rings that were imprinted with each other’s fingerprints, which made them among the most beautiful and unique I have ever seen. A friend made a miniature replica of their home which served as a card holder! And topping their cake was a crystal heart bearing their newly combined last names! All these touches added to the sweet sentiment of this occasion!
The Timothy Demonbruen House, a bed & breakfast located just behind Belmont University, is the perfect setting for an intimate wedding. An experienced chef, its proprietor, Richard Demonbruen, oversees every detail, and personally prepares a sumptious multi-course meal. The venue offers a lovely porch for vows, beautiful dining inside, and a casual porch and patio for receptions! This is my second wedding to shoot at this lovely location, and I look forward to returning!
Finally I just want to offer my sincere congratulations to this wonderful couple. They are a testament to the credo “love is love” and are proof that when two souls are meant to be together, love will find a way.
