Jennifer and Chad’s ‘rainy day’ wedding, photographed by Details Nashville, could not be more heartfelt and sentimental. Joined by family and friends, this couple celebrated their love in the most beautiful way! You will love reading about this couple and their special day.
When did you know you were falling in love?
“One day I was walking into a supermarket and saw an older couple walking ahead of me holding hands. Immediately my mind went to Jenn. I thought to myself, ‘this is what I want.’ That regular and simple afternoon stuck out in my mind and I knew she was the one for me.” – Chad
Was the planning process as stressful as you imagined?
Although there was so much to do, it was not as stressful as I was expecting. Once we picked our venue and date, everything fell into place pretty quickly. Our wedding planner knew my vision for natural colors, simplicity, and elegance while incorporating some rustic elements. She made the planning process exciting and fun!
What would you recommend to every bride-to-be?
Embrace what is out of your control. It rained for 4 days prior to our wedding and POURED on our wedding day. I could have been disappointed or upset, but instead we embraced the weather, had a back up plan, and did not let it take anything away from our day.
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?
We chose “On My Way to You” by Love and Theft. My brother is in the country duo and it was the perfect song that described both of our journeys to finding each other.
What was the most memorable moment?
Growing up I watched my dad sing Steven Curtis Chapman’s song ‘I Will Be Here’ in countless weddings and was so eager for it to one day be my turn. It was an honor to have him and my brother sing the song that has meant so much to me.
Tell us about your grand exit!
We had all of our guests lined up outside of the main barn to throw flowers in the air. We made it all the way to the car without a glitch until, in typical big brother fashion, my brother threw a big handful of flowers in my face… it was pretty comical!
What is your favorite quality in your husband?
“I would describe Chad as dependable and loyal. He would do anything for anyone he cares about. No matter what task it is, he always tries to find a solution and help out.” – Jenn
