Tennessee Mountain Top Wedding at The Magnolia Venue

Would you believe me if I told you this wedding at the magnolia venue was thrown together in around a month?

YUP.

Erica and Darin put their trust into their all-star vendors and y’all, it paid off. When Lindsey with Custom Love Gifts and Events asked if we were available for a kinda last minute wedding, we said hell yes because if we’ve figured out anything about our “ideal” couple, its that they’re relaxed. And nothing says relaxed like planning a wedding in a month. On the day of the wedding, we walked in expecting Erica to be super stressed, but that wasn’t the case at all. She was calm, cool, and collected, asking us to remind her when she needed to be done with hair and makeup and what time she should slip into her first dress (because yes, she had two and they were both AHHMAZING.) This couple placed total trust in us. Trust is so intregal to an incredible wedding day. I think I speak for all vendors when I say that a client who trusts you completely and totally shifts the mood of the entire day. Raining? Trust your vendors. Things not falling into place? Trust your vendors. Y’all, if you can’t trust the people you’re picking to work for you on your wedding day, you’re picking the wrong people.

Here are our top tips for planning a wedding in a short time frame

-Hire people you not only mesh with, but that you trust.

-Hire a planner.

-Be flexible.

-Just roll with it.

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.
