Meah and Kai are the sweetest couple together. Usbec and I loved getting to photograph their wedding day. They spared no detail and everything was gorgeous. They got married at Franklin Chapel in Blountville, TN. Meah’s grandfather actually built the church they got married in! They had it decorated beautifully and we loved getting to photograph the wedding there. We did most of their portraits just outside the church. There was a large open field that was perfect for photos!
Because Meah and Kai had a first look we had time for so many bride and groom portraits!! Meah chose to leave her veil off for the first look and then she added it for the ceremony. I love it when brides do this because then it gives them 2 different “looks”. Plus it keeps the groom in suspense a little bit because he gets to see her for the first look and they’re able to take a ton of portraits but then he gets to see her in her complete bridal attire for the first time when she walks down the aisle. After the ceremony, we were afraid it was going to rain before we got to Meredith Valley Farm for their reception so Meah asked if we could go ahead and get some photos of them together with her veil on. These might be my favorite photos from the whole day! I love, love, love cathedral length veils and Meah’s did not disappoint!
Once we arrived at Meredith Valley Farm for the reception we finished up family photos, bridal party photos and, you guys aren’t going to believe this, but MORE bride and groom photos!! Then it was time to eat! Firehouse catered and it was so, so yummy!! We love to go to Firehouse when we’re in town visiting family so we were really excited to see that they were catering the meal! Ya’ll it was delicious and the ladies serving did such a good job!
After the meal Meah and Kai shared their first dance and then everyone joined in. When the sparkler exit started it had started to sprinkle and as soon as the day was over the rain poured! It actually stormed really bad that night but we were so thankful the rain held off all day for Meah and Kai’s wedding. It was a beautiful day!!
Congratulations Meah and Kai!!
Thank you, Usbec for hanging all these dresses! 🙂
Usbec just knows how to get the best groomsmen detail photos!
These two shots below? This is what you get with a second shooter! I love having Usbec with me on wedding days to help get a different point of view!
Meah, you are absolutely stunning!!
This church is beautiful! It was perfect for their wedding and I loved how they decorated it.
Meah asked for some fun veil shots and I think we got it!! These are some of my favorite photos EVER!
I loved their reception decor. They didn’t forget anything! These tables were so fun to photograph and I know the guests enjoyed the special touches!
