I adore high school sweethearts and these two are no exception. Tying the knot at the The Emporium, their laid back celebration was fun, fresh, and perfectly captured by Kristin Sweeting. From the bright blooms by The Flower Pot to the rustic cake by Sandy’s Cakes, to their first meal catered by Chipotle (hello, dream!) every detail was the perfect reflection of their lovely relationship, and you can see it all here!

From Kristin Sweeting… If I had to describe this laid back wedding in Historic Downtown Knoxville in three words it would be fresh, unique, and simple. Monet and Michael met and dated throughout High School and College (UT Knoxville). Their wedding was laid back and they wanted to focus on enjoying this day with their family and friends. They both got ready at the stylish Oliver Hotel and we took pictures all around downtown Knoxville. Their ceremony and reception was at The Emporium, and whole night was full of dancing, food, and heart warming toasts from their friends.

Honeymoons are pure magic. I swear my husband and I talk about ours a least once a week and it was almost five years ago. So this honeymoon shoot from Red Boat Photography, Honeybee Events and LB Floral on sailboat? It basically is my heaven. And you can see why here.

From Honeybee Events
…This honeymoon styled shoot at Fort Loudon Marina in Knoxville, Tennessee was ideal for our models (who had been married 2 weeks previously) was nothing short of amazing! This duo was incredible and set the tone for the shoot. I wanted the shoot to tell a story from the moment they walked onto the boat dock with their luggage, to mapping out their sailing journey (also representative of their recent marriage and journey they were embarking on). The Red Boat Photography husband and wife team are super talented and SO much fun to work with. LB Floral created an over-the-top floral design for the back of the boat to display the “Just Married” sign.

Add a sophisticated color palette like black and white to a traditional day simply overflowing with gorgeous details and the results are this: a rainy/romantic day that can only be described as breathtaking. From the stunning gown from White Lace And Promises to the yummy ice cream bar (YES) to the elegant Bridgemore setting. See it all captured beautifully by JoPhoto in the full gallery.
From JoPhoto… Lauren and Jeff are two of our favorite people. Not only are they super perfect for each other, but they planned the most amazing Knoxville wedding and had a blast together doing it! Their black and white classy wedding was perfect for the clubhouse at Bridgemore, and Lauren and Jeff chose a fun alternative to having a traditional wedding cake – they had an ice cream bar for wedding guests instead of cake!
The day of their wedding it rained off and on, but the rain slacked off to a light sprinkle during their wedding ceremony and portraits. Moments after we were done taking photos outside, the rain started back up again. It was just enough time, and worked out perfectly!
Lauren said about her wedding gown, “I saw it at a bridal show up on a mannequin all in lights and HAD to have it! I knew before I even tried it on! It totally fits me and my old horse showing days since it’s covered with Swarovski crystals.”
