Zach and Hailey

A Fall Tennessee Wedding | Delano, Tennessee

Zach and Hailey celebrated their wedding day at Hiwassee River Weddings in Delano TN.
The day started out wet. Real wet, like go buy clear umbrellas kind of wet. But we all believed the weather forecast that said the sun would come out after noon. And it did! We had soft light for some amazing portraits throughout the day.

The day ended with a sparkler exit under the twinkly lights of the Forest Ceremony Site and a bonus night time photo on the tree covered road leading to the point. You will want to scroll all the way to the very end!!

One of my favorite parts of the day was Hailey and Zach being up for additional “Just married” bride and groom photos and then a few sunset photos.

Zach and Hailey, Thank you for being two of the most amazing people …and I’m so happy to have been a part of your perfect wedding day. I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Cococay and come back even more in love. I wish you a lifetime of happiness and joy!
Thank you for the pleasure of being your wedding photographer.
Much love, Nelya

It’s always so sweet when a groom writes his bride a letter to read before their first look. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.

These sparklers are my favorite kind to photograph! They are called Wedding sparklers. Yup, wedding sparklers. They burn a gold color and emit a low amount of smoke. The results are just lovely!

About three days before I’d gotten this idea for a dramatic night photo. The tree covered road at Hiwassee River Weddings in the daytime is pretty spectacular but at night, this is exactly what I was imagining!

I asked Hailey and Zach if they were up for one more night photo. Of course they said yes. Thanks to them for being willing to stand in the middle of the road in the dark for some crazy idea!!!!

Many thanks to the creative team for making the day so wonderful
