{Anna & Garrett Sneak Peek}

I promised Anna and Garrett and little sneak peek before I left town on Wednesday, but just like EVERY other time I go out of town, I didn't manage to quite finish up everything.  So, here I am from the great state of New York... I brought a harddrive with me just so I could upload a few of my favorite pics for them!  I'm going to expand this post to the full wedding blog in the next week or so, but until then, here are just a couple of my favorites. {Don't worry Anna, no crying pics yet... those'll come with the next round - hehe}

{erin & brad}

Soooo, I'm trying something new here with this blog post!  Ya know how I've been a HUGE slacker this summer when it comes to blogging?  Its mostly cause I'm a BUSY girl and blogging takes, well, darn near forever!!  However...  I am hoping that I have come up with a much easier, less time consuming way to give you a great wedding story.  Instead of storyboarding then uploading a picture at a time, I used photoshop to make one huge long storyboard, then I only have to upload ONE thing!!  OMG.  Why did I not think of this sooner!  The only big downfall is that I'm not going to be able to give my commentary in between pics... so I'll have to just tell the story at the beginning and let you guys sort it all out yourselves.  I think perhaps this is gonna be harder for me than it is for you.  Oh, how I love giving commentary.  ;) Hopefully, if you have the time you can let me know how this works and if you like having it all in one big story... 

So... meet Erin and Brad.  You might recogize them if you've been to the website lately... they are one of the couples on the homepage slideshow.  They hired me last year JUST for an engagement session.  Lucky for me, we hit it off and they called me back and invited me to shoot their wedding too!!  I honestly think I jumped up and down when we were able to nail it down, because not only are they like, the nicest people ever, they are also BEAUTIFUL and have amazing style and taste (Erin is actually the one who got me hooked on pinterest)!! I knew their wedding would be nothing short of amazing, and I was soooo right.  Plus they had the help of a fabulous planner, Meris Gantt with The Whole Shebang.

Among my favorite things for you to look for in the pics:  The invites! Brad is an uber-talented graphic designer, so he did these himself with their silhouettes.

The BEST candy table EVER!!  I LOVE how they did 'Erin's Favorite' and 'Brad's Favorite' cookies.

The DOGGIE!!!!

Their crazy-big wedding party!!  OMG!  15 groomsmen and 10 bridesmaids!  Luckily, they were seriously the most LAID-BACK folks in the world, so they were awesome to work with! And I totally loved the guy's hats and suspenders!!

I also loved the venue!  Girls in the Tri-cities area looking for a fabulous place for a wedding... the Allendale in Kingsport is not only super lovely, but also super affordable!  I almost passed out when they told me what they rented it for!  

Anywho... on to the pics!  

Thanks SOOO much Erin and Brad!  I loved being a part of it!!  ;)

{jenna and bradley}

Jenna and Bradley tied the knot back on May 8 at Dara's Garden.  My favorite ladies at One Enchanted Evening were responsible for all the lovely pink and grey details...  

I am because you are.  Big grin!

 The shoes! I couldn't resist. The bridesmaids' shoes were so sweet and precious compared to Jenna's studded pumps. So many brides hide tennis shoes, flip-flops or cowboy boots under their dresses, but not Jenna.. this girl was ALL about designer bling!

Is this girl gorgeous or WHAT???  Those EYES!  And her heart is just as big as her beauty!  Bradley's one lucky groom I have to say...

Love that little touch of Robin's egg blue on the barn wall.  

 

But Bradley isn't so bad himself!!  :)

Since the bride and groom didn't want to see each other before the ceremony, I used the old "reach around the door trick". It definitely got Jenna all teared up... hehe! I love the sense of mystery and anticipation captured in this moment.

 

 

 

Jenna and her dad are super close, and had the SWEETEST moment when they first saw each other...  NO TEARS!!!

'walking back down the aisle' pics have ALWAYS been some of my favorites!  This one is  right up there.  ;)

 You know how much I love solar flare. THIS is pure magic. It looks like a movie set.

 

Notice anything different??  Jenna changed dresses for the reception - a trend I've seen more and more lately.  Jenna's second dress was handmade locally and pattered off of the gown Portia De Rossi wore when she married Ellen Degeneres.  It was so beautiful on Jenna!!

I love how the colors in the barn wall play off of his grey suit and her pink dress.

 

 

 

 

and finally... On to the good stuff!!!  Dancin', cake eatin', bouquet tossin', laughin', cryin', sparklin' and just having a grand old time!

Thanks sooooo much Jenna and Bradley for sharing it with me.  xoxoxo

{caitlyn & bradley}

Adorable and fun-loving couple Caitlyn and Bradley wed on April 2, 2011.  But before the big day... they had a SUPER cute rehearsal dinner complete with a delicious spread of barbecue and a square dance and tons of toast, laughing and maybe even a few tears. You can tell these folks have no fear of cutting a rug. They were a blast! I hope the multitude of smiles in this post brighten your day. 






We took a little field trip over to West Hills Park to find some GREEN and some doggy-wood trees.  I can't tell you how happy Springtime in Tennessee makes this girl!

Caitlyn and Bradley had QUITE the wedding party!  These guys are all Young Life leaders together, so they are a super tight bunch.  Bradley and Caitlyn are spending their first year of marriage working full-time at a youth camp (and sharing a teeny-tiny little studio apartment) and lots of these guys are graduating and moving on, so this was also a really cool 'Last Hoorah" together for awhile.  Love the goofy one of Bradley.  
These next three crack me up!!  Poor little guy... Kiddos in weddings always have so much to offer in the way of entertainment.
LOVE the pic above of Caitlyn sneaking a giggle at Bradley during the ceremony.  This, my friends, is the luck of being in the right place at the right time.
WHEEEEE!!! We're married!!!


Haha... her face is priceless in this next one... DON'T YOU DARE!!  Did he?  Noooooo...  
The reception at Holston Hills Country Club was one of the most energetic I've ever seen! These ladies were ferocious in their pursuit of the coveted bouquet. 


I always take a picture of myself with the bride and groom... I have self portraits from nearly ALL of my weddings.  Anybody have any ideas on what I should do with them all??  I'm thinking wallpaper for the bedroom.  ;)
LOVE that these guys even danced down the bubble-runway!!   Thanks, Caitlyn and Bradley!
