Let me start by saying how wonderful it is to photograph multiple weddings within the same family! After spending so much time with them during such emotional events, each wedding becomes like a little family reunion for us! It’s always so great to catch up with our previous brides and grooms, see the same parents and grandparents again, and enjoy the company of familiar faces. This wedding was no different.
With sunny days and spring flowers in bloom, there was no time more perfect for this bridal session. But it wasn’t just a normal photo shoot. In fact, we didn’t even have a real bride!
You can tell it’s been a busy spring wedding season for us because the last thing I blogged about was Camille & Aaron’s engagement session! But now they’re married and it’s time to share some of our wonderful memories from their wedding day!
So here’s a fun fact: if you choose The Modern Heart to document your wedding, and if you’re getting married at Storybrook Farm Bed & Breakfast, it will rain on your wedding day.
A wonderful team of wedding vendors come together for a styled wedding at The VENUE at King’s Centre, in Johnson City, Tennessee. This labor of love and creativity was built around a theme of modern elegance, full of bright greenery and layered whites, wood and metallic elements, and loads of romantic lighting.
Natural vibes, bohemian styles, and cozy textiles come together to create stunning winter bridal inspiration for any bride looking for something a little different.
First of all, as I’ve said before, I’m convinced that Alexa is a Disney princess. When she first told me about the plans for a simple wedding on the banks of the Nolichucky River in Erwin, Tennessee, I was sure that there would be more squirrels, rabbits, and deer in attendance than there would be family members. But, like all good Disney movies, there was a villain to overcome before the first kiss could take place.
Courtney and Zachary love to spend their free time on the virtual battlefield and those gaming sessions have played a huge part in their relationship. So, when they had to devote an entire weekend to their destination wedding, it only made sense that they would find a way to include their love of gaming too.
As a photographer, it’s always fun to visit new locations and venues for work. It let’s us explore somewhere we’ve never shot at before, get out of the ruts that can come about when constantly visiting the same venues, and be creative in new ways. So with that being said, I LOVED working at the DreamMore Resort for this wedding! The entire property is full of beautiful landscaping, wide open porches, and gorgeous light that floods through all the windows. Had it not been for the threat of rain and the crazy humidity, I’m sure I could have explored even more to find hidden gems and secret locations that I had to pass up this time around.
