Sailboat Honeymoon Styled Shoot in Knoxville, Tennessee

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 PhotographyHoneybee Events and LB Floral on sailboat? It basically is my heaven. And you can see why here.


From Honeybee EventsThis 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.

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.”

Southern Jewish Wedding with a Farm Backdrop

From the bride’s lips to God’s ears…”The small details were great to have, but were not the first priority. Family and friends were first.” Love that. This is the kind of bride that I wish I was, focusing on building a beautiful wedding where the focus stayed firmly on love…and yet man! The details are pretty darn gorgeous too. Click here for even more from Julie Roberts.

A conversation between photographer Julie Roberts and the lovely bride…

Was there a moment when you knew you were in love?

One moment when we knew we really had something amazing, was in a little Italian restaurant back in our old town in Florida. The hour we were sitting and talking, it felt like time was suspended and everything made so much sense. Then we just knew that this was a really good thing. And we were and still are, very lucky.

Tell us about your proposal!

Daniel, his sister Katie, and I headed off to visit the great Himalaya mountains to Everest Base Camp where Katie and I would be sending Daniel off to finish the Everest climb. About a week into the trip, we took a rest with the team in a lovely historic village called Tengboche. While overlooking the Kumbu Valley and a beautiful monastery behind us, he asked the question of every little girl’s dream. After crying for 45 minutes with tears happiness, Daniel asked once more if I said yes. YES!!!

Three adjectives that describe your wedding day?

Magical, Emotional, and Fun.

What was your favorite thing about planning your wedding?

My favorite part about planning our wedding, was knowing we would be surrounded by the people we love most and want to celebrate this happy day with us! That was the motivation for making this the most fun day! The small details were great to have, but were not the first priority. Family and friends were first.

Tell us about your wedding music choices (ceremony, first dance, etc).

Daniel and I wanted to have a LOT of fun with the wedding. By starting the wedding with some standard classical wedding music for the ceremony we turned it up with some classic Tennessee “Rocky Top” to begin our first walk back down the aisle as husband and wife. The first dance, father-daughter, mother-son dances, were all about a significant memory we had we each other, the rest was up to Sword Sounds making it a great night!

What significant traditional elements did you include?

Half of my family is Jewish, so we wanted to included some really fun traditions like breaking the glass and of course, the Hora, or chair dance. Which I must say is scary even though you have a quarterback, Olympian, and alpinist holding you up…

What significant non-traditional elements did you include?

Taking a traditional bouquet toss to a no-so-traditional was so much fun! Handing the bouquet off to my new sister-in-law hopefully made her laugh.

What was the funniest thing that happened?

So many…My cousin, stole the dance floor away, great friends singing to classic rock, and of course our groomsmen all dressed the “correct” part for the YMCA.

Favorite Moment of the Day?

Every minute of it. One month later and I still wish I could relive it over and over again! But, seeing Daniel before the wedding was so powerful. I was surprised by how emotional I became. It is a memory I will always cherish.

What’s next for you as a couple?

We continue to live as happy as two peas in a pod. Keep living this surreal life and know how lucky we are to get to be with each other. Nothing beats falling asleep next to the person you love so much.
