Kaitlyn and Peyton celebrated their wedding in the garden at The Venue Chattanooga on a gorgeous May day with their family and friends. Guests traveled from Nashville, Atlanta and even from from as far away as Nebraska.

My favorite parts were all the little details Kaitlyn incorporated into her wedding. Her wedding ring was her Grammy’s. The flower girl’s basket was actually the same basket that   Kaitlyn used to carry flower petals in at her Aunt’s wedding years ago! Her dad built the wooden cross that they used on the mantel at the wedding ceremony. And “Something blue”, was the gorgeous shade of ice blue her bridesmaids were wearing.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! I am so excited for you as you begin this adventure together!! I hope you’re loving life and enjoy Cancun, Mexico without a care in the world!

Here are just a few of my favorites from this beautiful spring garden wedding.

Stephanie of Lang floral brought these gorgeous bouquets. The best part was how good they smelled!

The First Look

Ice Blue Wedding Inspiration

The bridesmaids all wore long dresses in ice blue, and Carter wore the cutest flower girl dress!

The Ceremony

The Reception

The food should be a separate blog post in itself, it was so good! Chicken bruschetta is my new favorite.

The father daughter dance started out slow, like you’d expect. Then the music changed and they brought the crowd to their feet! Scroll to the bottom for the video clip!!

Terry, of Terry’s DJ service definitely kept everyone entertained.

These little three bite  deserts came out partway through the dancing, and everyone loved them!

We ended with a sparkler exit just as it started to sprinkle a little. If you look real closely you’ll see little rain drops.

Nerdy camera and lighting recipe below for those interested:

1/200sec, f/3.5, ISO-2000, one OCF behind them in manual at about 1/16th power, one on-camera at about 1/64th power, and one video light camera right at 1/30th power.

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