Shelby and Josh have been together since high school and have a beautiful two-year-old little girl, Kenna. Although they were already the most adorable little family, they decided to make it official with a lovely fall wedding at The Museum of Appalachia in Clinton, Tn. Despite a crazy rainy day and a sick groom, their wedding was such a delight and so much fun to be a part of!

Shelby was stunning! and her maides were pretty fabulous as well in their Reap the Sew Boutique dresses

As I said before, Josh wasn’t feeling well but his face lit up when he saw his beautiful bride. The reception was a blast filled with dancing and complete with an epic Whip and Nae Nae by the bride.Congratulations Mr and Mrs Pelsor! We are so happy for you guys and your sweet family! Thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

Jenna + Chris :: Married!

Jenna Lawson + Chris Darnbush

July 11, 2015

Jenna has dreamed about her wedding day since she was a little girl and has been anxiously awaiting this day with Chris for years now. The two of them couldn’t be more perfect for one another. They are best friends and put each other before themselves. I am so happy for the two of them and honored they allowed me to capture such an important day for them.

Their wedding took place at a relative’s gorgeous 100+ year old home in east Knoxville, TN. The house is filled with southern charm and was the PERFECT spot for Jenna and Chris’s intimate southern vintage wedding.

The two of them opted to keep it simple and not to have a wedding party, but still had a few close friends join them to hang out and get ready for the ceremony. Jenna’s best friend since childhood, Sarah Kirkland, did her make up.

Hair: Ross the Boss

Dress: The Gilded Gown

A little girl’s first love is her daddy, and Jenna wanted a special moment with hers before he gave her away to her new husband. Then I ran across the street to spend some time with Chris. Up until this point he had been hanging in the pool with his buddies.

Good way to relax if you ask me!I knew Chris was a little nervous, so I thought it might help calm his nerves to have a minute with Jenna before the ceremony.

Don’t worry, they didn’t see each other.

Showtime!My favorite moment of the day: After they came back down the aisle as husband and wife and no one (but me) was watching, Chris grabbed her and kissed her. Pure joy and excitement. Bliss.I loved everything about my wedding day! I had been looking at the weather religiously for weeks and praying for no rain. The morning of the wedding had a few rain showers, but I tried not to worry. There was a light shower during the ceremony, but as soon as the guests made it under the tent, the sky opened up! I thought I would be upset but the rain made our day even more special.”The reception was lovely, filled with vintage details and incredible food.

Catering/Cake: Karens Katering

Flowers: Powell Florist

Rentals: Rothchild

After the rain stopped it turned into a beautiful and cool evening filled with all the people we love! I married my best friend and the entire day was as perfect as I had hoped it would be!”Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Darnbush! I love you guys and Im so happy for you!

Ally & Michael :: Just Married

I remember the first meeting I had with Ally & Michael to discuss their wedding. I could tell right away that they were both really sweet and a perfect match for each other! I really wanted to be the one to capture their wedding day and I was so happy that they booked right away! Their wedding day did not disappoint. It was a day filled with smiles and laughs and an epic Father/Daughter and Bride/Groom First Dance!!!

Remember that epic dance I mentioned….

Dad was reluctant to give up his daughter and he told Michael, “You Can’t Touch This!” But eventually Michael got his girl…

Ally & Michael – Thank you so much for letting me the one to photograph your beautiful wedding! I am going to enjoy watching you two grow together in Christ for many years to come!

These two said “I Do” surrounded by nature at Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, TN. It was a beautiful day filled with gray and white details and unique DIYs. They both looked incredibly happy and had a blast celebrating being husband and wife. The rehearsal dinner was a fun gathering of family and friends packed with super cute details, custom wedding party gifts, and BONELESS fried chicken from Buddy\’s BBQ!The Oliver Hotel in downtown Knoxville provided the perfect place to get ready for the ceremony. Make up by Deborah Mooney and hair by Emily Olukains of Clementine Salonand of course Jed had to be there for his parent’s wedding!The ceremony was super sweet! The officiant, Victor Berry has been a special part of Jody’s life since childhood and her nephew walked her down the aisle. John and Jody chose vows that were meaningful to them and repeated them to each other. They decided to show their union by signing their marriage certificate as part of the ceremony. Everyone was ready to celebrate after the ceremony! The guests enjoyed a cocktail hour and games while I spent some time with the bride and groom.and the official Minnich family photo. The Reception was a blast! and the food was AMAZING!

Kimberly + Greg :: Two Become One

Kimberly and Greg had one of the most touching ceremonies that I have been a part of in a long time. When you have two people who are blending their families together, they know what marriage is about and that it is not just about the wedding day. I love how all of their children were an integral part of the ceremony and the minister even had vows for the kids! And of course you can’t go wrong with the wedding itself when you are surrounded by your closest friends and family and the beautiful view at Strong Stock Farms!

Kimberly & Greg – You have an amazing family and I am so happy that I got to be there the day that all six of you became a family!

May 21, 2015 - 5:59 am Cherrie - Really beautiful wedding photography. The couple looks really happy and the location is to die for! Your detail photos are so gorgeous, too.

May 21, 2015 - 7:06 am Jamie - Thank you, Cherrie!

May 21, 2015 - 7:39 am Danielle - Beautiful details and lovely location

May 21, 2015 - 11:38 am Wynona - I love these! Weddings are the best! Now I want a vow renewal session with my hub. ;)
