How did you get engaged?  Tell us about your proposal!

Amber: My fiancé plays the saxophone and he pulled me on stage at one of his shows and proposed to me in front of the crowd of our family and friends.

How many guests are you expecting?

Amber: 220

How are you approaching your wedding budget?  

Amber: Our budget is $20k. We based our budget on what we felt comfortable spending. We are trying hard to stick to it. We still have some months to go, but so far we have remained on target.

Who have you hired for your wedding team so far?

Amber: So far, we have hired a wedding planner, a dj, a band, our photographer, a videographer, the caterer, the cake decorator, and the venue is solidified.

What’s your wedding style?

Amber: We don't really have a style. Originally, we wanted a modern-rustic look. We have gradually moved away from the rustic aspect and more towards a modern-simplistic style, with a few rustic elements.

What’s your most fun purchase/hire to date?

Amber: Purchasing materials for our DIY photo booth. I like DIY projects so assembling it has been fun.

What aspect of being engaged has surprised you the most?

Amber: The amount of support and offers to help that we have received from friends and family. I thought I would be doing the majority of the planning by myself, which made me very nervous, but we have had so much help.

What have you most enjoyed about being engaged?

Amber: I've enjoyed talking to other engaged couples who are planning their weddings. It's like being in a club. You instantly have a ton in common because you are typically dealing with the same issues. I've also gotten and shared a lot of good tips.

Tell us about your engagement session. Where did it take place?

Amber: Our engagement session took place here in Nashville where we live, at the Bicentennial Mall downtown. We also did a portion of the shoot on the campus of Fisk University.

What’s the significance of the location(s)?

Amber: The Bicentennial mall has a great park with an awesome view of Capital Hill. Fisk University is where my fiancé and I attended college and where we met. The campus is beautiful.

What did you like most about the session?

Amber: I loved how our photographer directed us. He did such an awesome job at creating the shots we wanted. He was super professional and worked fast (which was great because it was a hot day lol).

I absolutely adore this engagement session! I never knew how gorgeous the architecture was on the Fisk University campus – an incredible location for engagement shoots! Well done, Jon!
