JeriLynn + Stephen’s Arrington Vineyards Engagement by Smash Studios Photography

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

It's getting to be that time of year when the weather is perfect for a visit to Arrington Vineyards! The romantic setting is perfect for a proposal in the Nashville, TN area, a romantic picnic for two, or even your engagement photos! JeriLynn + Stephen opted for the latter and had their photos shot among the grape vines. I love how Ashley of Smash Studios Photography directed this shoot - with fun props and ring photos to die for... see them all below and hear straight from Ashley on what it was like to work with the couple!


JeriLynn Miles + Stephen Reed

Engagement Session

Arrington Vineyards


From the photographer, Ashley of Smash Studios: Stephen and JeriLynn met in the fall of 2010 while attending Austin Peay State University. They both ended up transferring to different schools on opposite ends of Tennessee, but remained close and talked daily. After two years, Stephen finally convinced JeriLynn to go on a date with him, and the rest is history. After three years of a long-distance relationship, Stephen moved to Nashville, where JeriLynn is a teacher. One Friday afternoon, the principal called JeriLynn to his office for a meeting (which terrified JeriLynn) to distract her; upon her return, she found her third grade class holding signs that spelled out "Future Mrs. Reed", with Stephen down on one knee. JeriLynn and Stephen chose the beautiful Arrington Vineyards for their engagement session, and the weather could not have been more perfect. Despite a rainy forecast, the sun shone, and the grapes were in full bloom on the vine. After a beautiful afternoon in the sun, we ended their engagement session with a pop of the champagne bottle, and a drink for all! Their wedding is in August 2017 at Loveless Cafe.

Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos with us, Ashley! You can check out more of her photography work at and also on Instagram!
