With all of this amazing sunshine and blooming flowers and trees, I can’t help but get incredibly excited for this coming Summer! I just love the warmth, soft grass and abundance of sun. It’s truly my favorite season!

This past Summer, I had the honor to photograph a styled wedding shoot alongside some of my favorite photographers and vendors here in northeast Tennessee! Melissa Baskette, of Piney Rose Designs, hosted all of us on her beautiful farm, Cave Springs Farm, and styled the whole session! She designed everything around the theme, “vintage summer garden,” which I absolutely love!

Limestone, TN: Renita + Nate's Intimate Rustic Country Wedding at the Millstone

A running theme of wedding season this year has been the constant threat of rain, and it was no different for these two. You can probably see the ominous clouds in the photos, but we lucked out and had a sunny and breezy evening for their wedding day. Renita and Nate didn't want a huge wedding, so they opted for an intimate celebration with their closest family members at the Millstone. Renita and Nate walked down the aisle together and met the officiant, Renita's dad, Reub! I thought it was so special that the father of the bride was also the officiant! After vows were read and rings were exchanged, Renita and Nate kissed for the first time as husband and wife and headed to the reception for delicious barbecue, pies, and cupcakes!

Butler, TN: Zach + Daisy's Rustic and Rainy Wedding at Sugar Hollow Retreat

Daisy and Zach were married at the lodge at Sugar Hollow Retreat in Butler, Tennessee. The original plan had been to have the ceremony on the lawn and reception under the tent, but Mother Nature had other plans! We all kept glancing at the weather radars, silently hoping there would be a break in the rain. The forecast didn't give any sign of it giving up, so Daisy made the decision to go for Plan B and moved the ceremony under the tent. Shortly after, the two said, "I do," to the sound of raindrops pattering on the tent and underneath the twinkling string lights. Talk about a romantic way to become husband and wife!
