JOHN + CARI
STONE GATE FARM MURFREESBORO TENNESSEE

It was just the beginning of fall and the countryside was just beginning to change color. With a mix of greens, yellows, oranges, and reds the contrast against Cari’s stunningly gorgeous teal dress was an absolute dream.

This is one of our favorites from the day showing both Cari and John with the countryside surrounding them.

The front had a lot of bright fall colors while the back had more of the subtle tones of fall.

The light at Stone Gate was incredibly beautiful that day and we found several perfect spots throughout the countryside.
