Weddings || Kevin + Brooke Sparrows Nest Summertown, TN Wedding

When we get inquiries from my hometown my heart skips a beat, well maybe it does back flips a little. I absolutely LOVE capturing memories for couples that I have ties to from high school or from my childhood. Brooke reached out to me because we went to the same high school at Lawrence County and I have since photographed some of her friends weddings. If I could draw up a perfect bride, Brooke would be the one I would duplicate. She is so easy going and laid back, and not to mention so gorgeous on the inside and out! When she first met with me she said she wanted A&M to be her photographer so to we needed to send her dates for when we would be in Lawrenceburg. You know it is a good start when that happens. So we have a date and then she mentions The Sparrows Nest in Summertown, TN is where she wants to have her wedding. I had never heard of it at that point and didn't know why because my hometown and the surrounding towns are very small ya'll, I mean more than one red light kind of towns, but much smaller than Knoxville. Come to find out we would be the first wedding to take place at The Sparrow's Nest. Well here goes my heart again doing back flips! I love opportunities like this! From the beauty of the rolling hills to the amazing couple that runs it, The Sparrow's Nest has quickly become one of our favorite venues in middle TN because of all the options you have. The ceremony site that Kevin and Brooke chose was up on a hill and the field had been bush-hogged in the shape of a heart! Come on now, that would seal the deal right there for me. ;) And the barn is located atop a hill that overlooks one of the most gorgeous lakes around. Seriously, it is to die for! If you are looking for a venue in the middle TN area, definitely check this one out! All the vendors were absolutely amazing to work with and Renea Cupples truly outdid herself with the flowers and decor! Okay enough talk though, you all need to see for yourself!
