Maypop Fields | Classic Spring Barn Wedding Inspiration

I’ll be honest, I’d shoot a styled shoot every week if I could. Especially when they’re THIS pretty.

Last month, Emily with EG Weddings and Events reached out to us and asked to meet up and get to know each other. We’re always excited to network so of course I said heck yes. When we met, she started describing this styled shoot she’d been designing and asked if we wanted to be a part of it and of course we said yes! Emily lined up a team of all-star vendors and put together this gorgeous spring inspired shoot at one of East Tennessee’s newest venues, Maypop Fields.

Maypop Fields is a barn, but not like any barn you’ve seen before. Its classic but modern, posh but laid back. The sweet ladies who run the barn have an excellent eye for detail, with tons of thought put into every nook and cranny of space. Here are some of our favorite things about this new barn venue.

  1. Its white on the inside and outside, so no funky color casts.

  2. Theres a suite for both the bride AND the groom…we love when a venue thinks about the groom too.

  3. Theres multiple ceremony sites.

  4. The inside is so lovely that if it rained and you could only shoot inside, you’d be totally fine.

  5. They have packages that include tables, chairs, and painted white pews. The tables are also a GORGEOUS light wood barn table design. We love them.

Theres tons more, but if you’re looking for a gorgeous venue, you HAVE to check out Maypop.

Other Vendors involved in this shoot that are ahhhhmazing-

EG Weddings and Events: Emily has been in the event planning industry for years, but recently relocated to Knoxville and has begun taking lots of East TN weddings and putting her own twist on them! Emily literally thinks of everything (she had little cookie bags for everyone who participated in the shoot, um hellllooo!?!? She’s perfect.) and is so incredibly easy and fun to work with. We can’t wait to work a wedding together soon!

Echelon Florist: This gang always knocks it out of the park. I love how full their arrangements always are!

Lillian Ruth: The gals at LR helped pick the most perfect gown for this shoot. Classic but still fun. Thats part of what I love about Lillian Ruth’s selection.

Tristar Scribe: Man, Brit always kills it. She’s so insanely talented. All of the envelopes and invites are allll her. And can we talk about the gold and emerald green? Hello swoon.

Katie Carnegie: Katie was the HMUA for this shoot and wow. This was our first time working together and we LOVE her work! So fun and fresh, but still timeless. We also loved that Katie stuck around and helped adjust hair and makeup while we set up shots!

Regal Tuxedo: I’m a sucker for a well fitting suit, and so often suit rentals won’t be, but Regal goes the extra mile and makes sure their fellas look great.

Rachel Writes Fancy: Rachel made the most lovely sign! I love her work and seriously need to hire her to fill up my ginormous blackboard in my living room. I write like a toddler so I’m a big fan of anyone who doesn't.

Lastly, our lovely models, real life couple Gabe and Maleia! They’re both so beautiful and I can’t wait to see their real wedding photos!


Contemporary Country Wedding at Country Manor Acres


Contemporary Country Wedding at Country Manor Acres

Every photographer has an ideal couple. For some, that couple is incredibly wealthy and polished, for others, that couple wants to elope. Some photographers love a detail heavy wedding, others just need two people. Us? We love a laid back couple, everything else is secondary. If you love each other and you're more excited about the marriage than the wedding, then we're probably the Knoxville photographers for you. 

Enter Chelsea and Andrew. I could gush about our connection for days, but I think its best to let their photos speak for themselves. Being a part of their wedding day felt like being a part of an old friend's wedding. We laughed together, cried together, and cheered for one another throughout the day. My favorite part of their wedding day was the inclusion of Chelsea's biological daughter, Emma, as well as Emma's adoptive parents and little brother. At one point, Chelsea had a special reveal of her full wedding look just for Emma, then they shared a special moment, one I truly felt privileged to capture, where Chelsea gave Emma a necklace she had worn while pregnant with Emma. Em was clearly excited, squealing, "I'm gonna keep it in my sock drawer so its safe!"  Andrew and Chelsea also surprised their guests with a foot washing ceremony, signifying their devotion and humility toward one another, just as Jesus did with his disciples. 

The love and joy on C & A's wedding day was tangible. It was one of those days where every bit of achey bones and sore muscles was 110% worth it. We feel so incredibly blessed to call this a job, and to call our couples friends.
