Back in Nashville, And Things Have Changed!
In the 90s I spent a lot of time in Nashville, Tennessee. I met my now-husband through friends who lived in the city, and I went to Nashville a lot to see him.
This weekend my husband (somewhat disconcertingly) dropped me off at the Austin airport, and I went back to Nashville for the first time in a long time, in order to be the “official wedding photographer” for my friend’s sister’s wedding. (If they could have afforded a real photographer for the wedding, I wouldn’t have done it!) As a bonus service for being the “official photographer” I also threw in buying the punch and ice for the event, as well as sweeping the Paradise Ridge wedding venue just before we vacated the spot.
Having not been in “Nash Vegas” in a long time, it was nice to see how the city has changed, especially the East Nashville area where some of my friends live.
While in East Nashville, we went to Mitchell’s Deli and I bought my now-husband some local stone-ground cornmeal and Nashville-made chocolate.
Meanwhile, in Brentwood, Tennessee (the fancy Nashville suburb where I’ve been staying), I spotted a tour bus pulling out of the fancy neighborhood and my friends drove me by Dolly Parton’s house on their way home!
Nashville, its been great to see you again!
It was also nice to go to the pretty little town of Franklin, Tennessee as well, where my father tells me I once went when I was little.
I’ve been rolling with a fab three year-old since I got here, so I don’t have nearly as many pictures as usual!
I just wish that the first wedding I shot hadn’t been 99 degrees and 99 percent humidity. I’m still all wore out from that experience.
