Sometimes I am just in awe of the fact that I get to be a part of documenting the most important day for two people! Ashley and Brandon’s Whitestone Inn wedding in Knoxville, Tennessee was such a special day full of the sweetest celebrations. They had a stunning winter wedding filled will love and breathtaking panoramic views of the river around the property.
Ashley and Brandon are best friends and madly in love, which obviously made their wedding such an incredible celebration. They met through a mutual friends while in college. He is kind and caring, treats her like a princess, and can always make her laugh and smile. Ashley is beautiful inside and out, and as classy as can be. They are perfect together and it is SO easy to see how special and connected their relationship is.
There was so much love and support all around on the wedding day. I loved watching Ashley and her Mom have happy tears as she helped Ashley into the dress, and I loved watching her father glow with happiness all day long as he celebrated his daughter’s marriage to such a wonderful man.
The entire wedding day took place at the Whitestone Country Inn in Knoxville, Tennessee–which I absolutely love! The grounds are gorgeous, and the view of river from every angle is unbeatable. One of my favorite parts about the venue is the charming chapel situated on the property right beside the reception hall!
Ashley and Brandon both got ready at the Whitestone Inn. The girls got ready in a gorgeous suite called the “Eagles Landing,” which featured lots of large windows and beautiful natural light. (Plus, there was the added bonus of feeling very CIA always addressing the room as the “Eagles Landing.”) The guys got ready in a room overlooking the grounds and had an outdoor patio that was perfect for playing games and drinking whiskey while waiting for the ceremony!
I actually had the honor of doing Ashley’s bridal portraits a few months prior to the Whitestone Inn wedding, and the second I saw her in her dress I gasped. She is an absolute vision, and I definitely could not wait for Brandon to see her on the wedding day! Time stopped when Brandon saw his bride walking down the aisle. His reaction was absolutely perfect, and to capture the magic of this was such an honor.
After the ceremony was over, everyone turned into full celebration mode and danced the night away, myself included! I felt so privileged being able to witness such a perfect day full of love, and I was so happy to photograph Ashley and Brandon’s beautiful wedding. I’m so excited to share some of my favorites from their Whitestone Inn wedding with you!
