American Idol alum Josh Gracin married his partner of over two years, Katie Weir, in one of the most beautiful weddings we've had the pleasure of capturing.
When Katie called me and explained her love of film photography and how they wanted to create a "fine art wedding" with an Old Hollywood feel while also staying true to their country roots, I knew this was going to be a beautiful day!
On May 6, 2017, Josh and Katie said "I do" in Nashville, Tennessee at the Green Door Gourmet under a chiffon adorned structure covered in green and white hydrangeas. Katie arrived at the end of the aisle in a fancy car before stepping out for her love Josh to see her for the first time.
Every detail was worthy of a "fine art" label, from the four mrs. boxes, to Katie's sparkly Christian Louboutin heels to her absolutely stunning Galia Lahav gown! Katie presented each of her bridesmaids with gifts from Tiffany's, each customized.
The party continued into the barn area, draped in crystal chandelier and silver and pink detail. With regards to the cake, Josh tells us “We wanted a minimalist theme for the wedding so this cake really went well with the simple and modern design aspect." During the reception venue, guests dug into the all-white confection made up of two tiers of chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse buttercream and salted caramel, and two tiers of traditional almond wedding cake. The whole creation was covered with vanilla buttercream in “rustic textured lines” and decorated with white flowers.
The pair also incorporated a sentimental piece into their cake cutting ceremony: “We had ‘Mr. & Mrs. Gracin – May 6, 2017’ engraved on the front of the servingware, and the back reads ‘I Like You a Lot’, which is a song by Jake Owen that Katie sent to me after dating for a couple of months,” says Josh Gracin, whose own single “Nothin’ Like Us” is steadily streaming on Spotify. “She also had it engraved in my wedding ring.” Read More
