A Hiwassee River Weddings Wedding | Delano, Tennessee

Chelsea and Nick’s September River Wedding was nothing short of spectacular on the bank of the Hiwassee River. This new wedding venue is one of my favorite locations to shoot not only because of the beautiful river view from the property but also because there are so many beautiful photo options!!! The day started off sunny and steadily growing warmer as the girls bustled about getting ready with laughs and mimosas …and donuts. The only surprise was a brief pop up shower after the wedding ceremony. But Nick and Chelsea were up for anything and we photographed right through it.

Nick and Chelsea have such a sweet, endearing love for one another and others. I’m so thankful for the time that I had with them and for the privilege it was to capture their beautiful wedding!

Nick and Chelsea,
Thank you for being two of the most amazing people…and I’m thrilled to have been a part of your perfect wedding day.
It was such an honor to capture your beautiful moments and lovely details. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your honeymoon in Jamaica!! I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!
Much love, Nelya

I hope you love my favorite moments of your day!!! There were so many that I loved and it was hard to narrow it down!!!
