Allie loves sunflowers! When I asked her where she’d like her engagement photos to be, she said she wanted them with sunflowers at the Sunflower Field in Ooltewah, TN.
The Sunflowers have a short blooming season and we weren’t sure if we’d missed it. Allie went out a couple days in advance to check how the sunflowers looked and if they were still blooming. She reported back that they were still looking good for the end of the season.
Allie and Parker met through mutual friends. On their first date they found they had lots of things in common including a big love for all things outdoors, Mexican food, and dogs 🙂
Fast forward to this June. On a trip to Iceland, Parker took Allie to a secret waterfalls. And there at the base of the dramatic secret waterfalls in Iceland, with a photographer hidden from sight, Parker popped the question!
Parker and Allie have are planning a Greenhouse inspired wedding at The Venue at Lilly Lou’s next year. When they recently visited the Venue at Lilly Lou’s they just kind of fell in love with the uniqueness of the greenhouses.
Ooltewah Sunflowers Engagement photos
The sunflower field is on the Ooltewah Georgetown road, North of Chattanooga. You can’t really miss it, and it’s a super popular place and there are multiple fields of sunflowers. If you pull up a google map just zoom in to where the congested traffic is on Ooltewah Georgetown Rd, and that’s it!
at the entrance to to sunflowers there’s a vintage bus painted in wild colors that we couldn’t pass up for a fun background.
They wanted their dog to be part of their sunflower engagement photos. …But he’s a little bit excited to come for the whole time. So they had their wedding planner Jessie of Jessie Loga Wedding planning bring him for just a few photos and then take him home.
We walked out by the pick your own sunflower fields and where they also have strawberries in the spring.
We had a few looming clouds and thunder, but managed to get all the engagement photos in the sunflowers before it rained.
