Entries in knoxville wedding photography (34)


Rachel & Ryan  

"My #1 goal is to get married today.  But my second goal is to not drop this veil in the toilet".  ~ Rachel

I'd say those are two very good goals to have on your wedding day! Oh the quotes they spatted off all day. I probably should have carried a journal with me to write them all down in. All of my couples are just amazing but I seriously love this couple so much.  Their wedding ceremony was just so beautiful and thoughtful.  Not only was it centered around their love for each other but also the love they share for others in the world.  The arbor that they stood under was built by Rachel & Ryan based on the tradition of the chuppah symbolizing the home the couple will build together. The structure remains open on all sides, allowing love to freely enter the home, in order to welcome guests in unconditional hospitality.  And if building an arbor wasn't enough, Rachel also hand painted the programs which were gorgeousness. They were married at The Lily Barn in Townsend with the fall colors just barely popping out for them.  Rachel wore her grandmother & mother's veil (and lime green shoes) & the guests painted water color photos in the guest book.

These two are just plain fun and laughter. They decided to have all of their guests throw lavendar on them after the ceremony.  Rachel had it stuck in her braids for the rest of the night but she just laughed and had the best time with the people she loves. I'm so honored to share these pictures. These two are something special...


The guys asked me what they should do with their hands.  I told them to cross their hands in front.  This is what they thought I meant...


This is what I actually meant, hahaha...




Amanda & Matthew  


Weddings are sentimentally beautiful for so many reasons.  The joining of families and the thoughts of those that couldn't be there and a lot of love sprinkled in there and it can be so sweet to capture.  Amanda thought about her grandpa a lot on the day of her wedding.  She wore one of his old shirts as she got her hair and make-up done, when she prayed she remembered that he was with her and when she walked down the aisle, she carried a photo of the two of them on her gorgeous boquet.  Her grandpa loved trains so it was only fitting that Amanda & Matthew have their recpetion at The Southern Depot.  

But for every tear that day, there was also a beautiful smile that doned Amanda's face as she got to marry the guy she loves.  And while it rained all morning, the sun came out for photos and stayed.  Amanda said on facebook that morning, "Rain or shine I still get to marry Matthew and start our new amazing adventurous life together."  Perfection!


Chelsea & Will - Castleton Farms Wedding

I've seen a lot of wedding dress but I still can't get over this one.  Seriously, if I did my own wedding all over again (I'd keep the groom of course) I would die to wear this dress.  Although, I am not sure anyone else could rock it like Chelsea did.  She's so gorgeous!  A girl with a dancer's heart and a love for her man is a beautiful combination.  And of course it doesn't get any better then having your wedding at the one and only Castleton Farms.  This place just takes everything to a whole other level (not to mention, I feel kind of important driving a golf cart around all day).  Here are some of my favorites from this very special day...


Joy & Love

It's beginning to look a lot like Fall!  This weekend I got to photograph a lot of JOY and LOVE from 2 amazing couples.  Stay tuned for more...



Hayli & Jonathan  

Hayli & Jonathan are not your typical New Yorkers - at least not what I tend to think about New Yorkers.  They are very go with the flow, easy going people ready to sit back, enjoy the day however it pans out.  If things go according to plan, great.  If not, that's fine too.  There are so many things I love about a wedding but I just adore when a couple feels so loved and supported all day by there family and friends and Hayli & Jonathan could not be more loved and supported.  And how could they not be - the way they look at each other is just so endearing.  This was just simply a beautiful day at Crescent Bend.
