Intimate wedding at The Gaylord Opryland Hotel | Congratulations Nicole and Kyle!

Nashville wedding photographer, Melanie Grady Photography, Gaylord Opryland Hotel

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing a dreamy and intimate wedding at The Gaylord Opryland Hotel just outside of Nashville.  Classy is a great word to describe The Gaylord Opryland Hotel and it was the absolute perfect backdrop for the sweet wedding of Nicole and Kyle. Everything about the hotel was amazing and unique and basically a photographer’s dream. Nine acres of lush, indoor gardens and cascading waterfalls…. endless areas to take photos of a new bride and groom!

I loved all of the sweet details of this intimate wedding. The cowboy boots Nicole wore underneath her stunning lace dress. The jewelry Nicole gave her two new stepdaughters before the ceremony (it was such an emotional moment!), and the two wedding bands for Nicole, one from Kyle and one from the children. Everything was just perfect!

From what I gathered being with them on their wedding day, the best way I can describe Nicole and Kyle and their relationship is fun, compassionate and loving.  It was so fun to watch the excitement wash over Nicole after the ceremony.  She was SO delighted to take photos with her new husband all around the beautiful grounds. Kyle may have been a little camera shy, but he had his gorgeous new bride by his side and that was all that mattered. These two became a family of five on their special day and I was honored and privileged to be a part of their beautiful and special ceremony!
