Fall is in the air and so is engagement season!
I absolutely love being able to photograph weddings, but I also love having the opportunity to mix things up a little. Seeing a couple get engaged is such a joyous moment. It's the beginning. Before the venue, flowers, and dress. I was so blessed to be able to capture this couples "beginning" at Brasstown Valley Resort this weekend.
Here's a preview from this sweet couple's wedding this weekend at the lovely Southern Charm Wedding Venue in Cleveland, TN.
Natasha and Caleb, I hope you had a wonderful wedding day! Everything was absolutely beautiful. My favorite part of the day was watching you guys laugh, giggle, and soak up every moment.
Featured Wedding Venues continue with this gem, Howe Farms.
Howe Farms is nestled in Georgetown, TN, about 20 minutes from Cleveland, TN. This is another rare location that has two venues to showcase.
Let's start with The Vineyard.
The Vineyard has the capacity to accommodate up to 400 guests! My favorite part of this location in the ceremony site. Check this out!
Say "I Do" from this overlook with an incredible view and the cutest little chapel!
Location Number Two: The Apple Barn
On the backside of the property you will find The Apple Barn. It also has its very own outdoor ceremony site as well as this stunning indoor facility.
Wrapping up the action packed weekend at the always beautiful, Willow Creek Falls.
This couple decided on an intimate ceremony to incorporate their immediate family. I love it!
A little rain on your wedding day? (Or maybe a sudden downpour?) No worries! It's still the best day ever!
Fall wedding season is in full swing!
I had an action packed weekend, starting Saturday at Aska Farms with Graison and Kyle.
I could not get enough of this dress!
Mrs. Pamela Keith did another outstanding job with these flowers!
..more to come!
Fall is here! But Ronan doesn't seem to mind. All he cares is that he turns TWO! (and that means cupcakes are involved).
Here's a few of the lovely detail shots from Nicki and Jeff's wedding this weekend. They shared an intimate ceremony with family and friends, taking in this incredible view from the Ambleside Cottage at Old Toccoa Farm.
This weeks featured venue is a continuation from last week.
Part Two of Cloudland Station: Candlelight Ridge
Are you a bride who is looking for a chic/boho ceremony site? Do you picture yourself walking down the aisle barefoot? This is the place for you!
Although Candlelight Ridge is still under construction, they are already booking 2019 couples! The ceremony site offers a breathtaking view of Lookout Mountain. I can't wait to see everything once the landscaping is completed!
What an awesome place to entertain your guests during your reception! Truly unique.
This is the bridal suite. As you begin your morning with hair and makeup, you can overlook your ceremony site and the beautiful Lookout Mountain.
This sweet couple is traveling home from their honeymoon today. Hopefully this will put a smile of their faces as they are traveling!
Shawn and Amber incorporated so many sentimental items into their decor. I just kept going back to this same view all day and snapping more images. I couldn't get enough of this entryway!
The Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Barrett!
Did you know that nearly 40% of engagements happen between November and February?
I think it's safe to say that engagement season is upon us. So for all of those couples who may be getting engaged this Holiday Season, I have decided to do some posts featuring certain venues. Some of these venues are well known to a lot of couples. While others may be hidden gems just waiting to be discovered by a newly engaged couple. So let's have some fun with this...
Our First Venue to be featured will be in two parts. Cloudland Station in Chickamauga, GA has two lovely venues to host your wedding. Today, we will will highlight "The Homestead" at Cloudland Station.
The Homestead is a timeless venue in the middle of a vast nature preserve where you can incorporate a historic feel with modern conveniences.
Peacock Hall provides the backdrop for this location. This is also where your bridal party can begin their day with hair and makeup.
Ceremonies can either take place directly in front of Peacock Hall or across the way with this serene view of the lake.
Immediately next door is this historic barn that was originally built in Pennsylvania. It was then relocated piece by piece to its new home at Cloudland Station. This adds a unique twist to your reception.
I hope you have enjoyed this venue. Up next, we will look at the second part of Cloudland Station, Candlelight Ridge.
I had a great time this week capturing the Flowers Family.
Brasstown Valley Resort always provides a beautiful backdrop.
I had such a beautiful Mama to capture in this rustic/whimsical maternity session. I'm so excited for this sweet couple to welcome their little girl into the world. She is going to be one spoiled little girl!
When you picture your perfect wedding day, what type of setting are you in?
Are you in an elite hotel ballroom? In a field with a barn backdrop? What about a view so amazing, it takes your breath away?
This wedding venue offers on site catering, suites for both the bride and groom, and so much more!
Happy One Week Anniversary to Zachary and Kristy!
Here's just a little peek into their wedding this past Saturday.
When your Momma is "more beautiful than Cinderella".
I just love when couples have their ceremony under the tree at The Barn at Young Harris. It's simply enchanting.
Aska Farms is situated in the midst of an incredible mountain view. So thankful to have been able to take advantage of that as we did Natasha and Caleb's engagement session.
