The River Place Wedding

This gorgeous wedding at The River Place in Sevierville, Tennessee was what dreams are made of. It was the first wedding I shot as lead photographer, and it was beyond amazing! This is the wedding that made me fall in love with wedding photography and it honestly shaped my career. I love letting the photos tell the story, so check out Kelsey + Todd’s wedding through the images!

Getting Ready At The River Place

The River Place is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue, and their space to get ready is no exception! The bride’s room was so cute with pink walls and chairs. It was so feminine, but also very classy. Kelsey, my bride, and her bridesmaids and family all fit so well in the room and really enjoyed the comfort and convenience that the room had to offer!

The Groom’s room wasn’t as cute, but I think the guys appreciated the lack of pink walls! It was a great room for everyone to get ready and to joke around. I love all of the precious moments between a groom and his family before the ceremony. Todd had his dad help with his tie and his mom spruced him up with a boutonniere!

All The Details

You spend months planning all the little details for your wedding day, so they deserve to be documented! I absolutely loved how this wedding was decorated. It was warm, classy and fun! There were beautiful gold details scattered through out the venue and so much greenery!

My love for ring shots is real! I can’t get enough of the creativity that goes into it. I love to take items and florals from the venue and incorporate them.
