Fairyland Club Wedding on Lookout Mountain

I am so excited to share Kyra and Tom’s gorgeous Fairyland Club wedding on Lookout Mountain! Being asked to photograph the wedding of a former bridesmaid and/or groomsman is probably the greatest compliment one can receive as a wedding photographer. I’m honored that after watching me work and seeing the final result, another bride and groom would entrust me to do the same for them on their most important day. Kyra and Tom were in the wedding party of the wedding of one of our former couples, Alex and Wells and I remember them well from the wedding. They were such a cute couple and I was hoping they would call me when the day came. When that day did come and they did contact me, I was ecstatic, and the wedding they had planned only made me more excited!

Kyra and Tom were married at The Fairyland Club in Lookout Mountain, Georgia on a beautiful Spring day. As the name hints, there is definitely something magical about Lookout Mountain, as well as the surrounding area of Signal Mountain and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga is an awesome little city set on the Tennessee River and surrounded by picturesque mountains with tons of great restaurants and breweries. They also had a ton of great local vendors to help make the everything come together. The beautiful floral arrangements were provided by Humphrey’s Flowers. The amazing cake was provided by Dan Carrey at Cake Makers. The Malemen Band provided the entertainment. Christine Scott was the wedding planner and made the day wonderful for everyone.

Kyra was stunning in her Martina Liana wedding dress from LeRaine Bridal Boutique in Atlanta. Her makeup was done by Jessica Eubanks and her hair by Devin Baker. The bridesmaids dresses were purchased at Azazie. Everyone, from the bridal party to the guests, looked great and had an amazing time. The best part about it was working with Kyra and Tom. From their engagement session, to the planning, to the wedding, Kyra and Tom could not have been nicer. I loved getting to see this couple I had met a year ago at a wedding say their own vows to each other. It was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful Fairyland Club wedding! Thank you Kyra and Tom!

 

 

 

Nashville Wedding Photography, Gina and Paul

Gina and Paul’s Nashville wedding took place on a gorgeous spring day at a lakefront residence outside of Nashville in Lebanon, Tennessee. There was barely a cloud in the sky and everyone there was ready for a good time. Gina and Paul are from New Orleans where Paul and Gina’s mother are both musicians, along with many of their friends and other family members. With Paul and many of the guests being musicians, it was important to Paul and Gina to have music be a central part of their wedding. Many of their guests and friends are musicians, so many of them took part and joined the band that was led by Leroy Jones and the Spirit of New Orleans.

Gina and Paul wanted a laid-back and intimate atmosphere for their wedding to go along with all of the great music. They opted not to have a wedding party and instead wanted everyone together all day. People played corn hole and croquet. There was even a bounce house! That was a wedding first for me. I have never seen a bounce house at a wedding and I really didn’t know what I was missing before this day. What an awesome idea?! The kids loved it! And so did many of the adults!!

This beautiful event was made possible by the group effort of vendors as well as family and friends. Paul’s sister did the flowers and his brother-in-law made the metal screens that were used for the ceremony. The event was hosted at Paul’s aunt’s house and his uncle was in charge of the BBQ along with Actual Food Nashville. Rentals were provided by Chief Rental. All of the delicious cakes were baked by Wolfe Gourmet Cakes.

It was an incredible honor being a part of this beautiful and intimate wedding. Thank you Paul and Gina for allowing me to capture this incredible day! I hope you enjoy the photos!
