We had the privilege of shooting so many wonderful weddings in 2013, but I really can’t say enough about this one in particular. Blake and Brad’s wedding took place at Blake’s childhood church, Fountain City First Baptist. We took all of the photos before the ceremony at RT Lodge, which was also the location for the reception. It was an amazing day and we hope you enjoy this glimpse of their beautiful wedding!

Between Blake and her Mom, Aunt, Dad, and best friends there was a roller coaster of every emotion. They laughed, they cried, and they were nervous. It was a beautiful mess! We love these types of moments- especially when we get the opportunity to capture them on camera.
We’re excited to get this wedding out there in the new year because Rachel and Marc’s wedding at Holy Ghost and Cherokee Country Club incorporates some of Knoxville’s best wedding vendors and a classic style I think we’ll be seeing a lot of in upcoming year.

We’ve had a wonderful season shooting tons and tons of gorgeous weddings! It’s been such a diverse group and we’ve loved the ever changing scenery. Bethany + Billy were married in their backyard in Wears Valley, Tennessee . We always appreciate the community effort it takes to pull off a wedding on someone’s personal property. It takes an organized team of people to pull it off, but when they do it is a beautiful, intimate and personal event — just as it should be!
I wish we could post every single image from Bethany and Billy’s wedding but here some of our favorite candid moments and wedding details.
Congratulations to our couples Caroline + Peach and Katarina + Justin whose weddings were featured in Wedding Flowers & Accessories and in The Knot for Northern California this summer, respectively. All of their amazing vendors are listed in the links below!
Katarina + Justin – Little River Inn, Mendocino, CA
We were so happy to be a part of Claire and Michael’s gorgeous Knoxville wedding, styled so beautifully by our wonderful friend and past bride Jenn Laraia! This post is super heavy on the details because we want to show off what happens when talented local vendors come together – essentially transforming the very cool parking lot of Southern Railway Depot into a magical space for a party! From the invitations (Fourth Year Studio) to linens (Table Five) to florals (Whimsical Gatherings) to cakes (Sugar Buzz) to hair & makeup (Bangs & Blush) everything was truly amazing!
Laurie and Randy were married on a perfect spring day at one of absolute favorite places to photograph weddings, Blackberry Farm in Walland, TN. They had around 50 guests - an intimate destination wedding with their closest friends and family. It was a magical day and I hope you all enjoy their wedding.
