A Special Derby Day Wedding // Leighton + Yates

Such a beautiful day celebrating the Bryant’s wedding at their stunning family residence in Columbia, TN. The bride had known Sarah for years, working together was a breeze and just what any bride wanting low stress needs. The weather was perfect and the family enjoyed spending time together sharing memories they had made at the home throughout the years.

Florals by Nicole adorned the trees, tables, tent, and house.

The Bride and Groom gave each other special gifts, had their 1st look alone inside the house, did bridal party photos before the ceremony leaving time for extended family and friends after. This also provided the perfect timing for golden hour photos. Emily Lester Photography captured too many amazing photos, we cannot get over the staircase!

The Ceremony was followed by the family gathering to watch the Kentucky Derby together while Yates dug up whiskey that had been buried in the yard, we appreciated seeing a groom get his hands dirty.

The tables were set with 20ft florals, pink, and delicate touches. The cake was Daisy’s fav to date, adorned with matching florals around precious family heirlooms.

You could feel the love and bond of this family the moment you entered the property, but it really showed on the dance floor!

The night concluded with fascinator clips, glowsticks, and sparklers.
