Have I told y’all lately how much of a sucker I am for a beautiful bouquet?! The pastel trend has given me all the heart eyes lately! 💐 This week has been crazy busy, but I’m so thankful! After editing all week, I met with @jeremy.gouge this morning to chat about our wedding on Saturday! Tomorrow, I finally get to meet up with my sweet October bride, @carolinelonas and her fiancé for a super fun engagement! Then it’s wedding day! Please pray for no rain for my sweet bride and groom! 🙏🏻 So thankful to do what I love everyday! 🙌🏻[ Tap for vendors from this dreamy styled shoot!]

This weekend was so dreamy! I had a blast working with Tricia Mosier of @elizabethdeanstyled and Chelsea Blount of @blossom_and_bloom_design at their Free Spirit Elopement styled shoot! I absolutely loved visiting the @homesteadontheholston and hanging out riverside with the vendors and models, Lara & Heath! 🛶 I’ve really been so lucky to have been invited to these styled shoots this past summer. I love meeting and collaborating with local entrepreneurs, but also to keep the creative juices flowing during wedding season. I can’t wait to share more from this session! 🌿 Tap photo for vendors!

How beautiful was Marjorie’s tablescape at her intimate cabin reception?! All of the warm candle light really added to the romantic vibes. 🕯I sometimes forget to share the gorgeous reception details that brides and grooms put so much thought into- I promise to get better at that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 🌿 Speaking of tablescapes, I’m headed out to another styled shoot today, this time with the amazing Tricia Mosier of @elizabethdeanstyled events (and so many other lovely vendors)! I can’t wait to share what she’s been envisioning the past couple of months! I’m so thankful to have had these fun shoots to keep the creative juices flowing and to collaborate with wonderful local entrepreneurs!

It’s super fitting that it has been pouring rain here in East TN today, as I just published Marjorie and Nick’s blog from their stormy wedding day! 🌧 These two exchanged vows and rings during a small break of sunshine, but as they kissed as husband and wife, the rain started slowly falling on the mountain! They embraced the crazy weather for portraits, then hurried back to the cabin for a warm, delicious dinner! Such a dreamy, mystical, wedding day! 🌿 Link in the bio to see their full wedding day blog! Tap photo for vendors!

Rhododendrons are for [mountain] lovers. 🌸 Happy gallery delivery day to these two! Can’t wait to share the blog for @marjoriemae_ and Nick’s intimate wedding on Roan! Stay tuned! 🌿

TGIF! 🌿 I’m incredibly excited for this weekend, for my sweet mama is visiting the beautiful Tennessee mountains from the hills of Pennsylvania! I’m excited to show her everything we love about this area and spend some quality time. ⛰ What are you guys up to this weekend?!

Do you guys remember me asking if you had any questions regarding wedding dress cleaning & preservation? 👰🏻I was able to chat with Kristie Johnson of @anniesroom, a leading bridal boutique in the Tri-Cities of TN! I sent her all of your questions to get answers straight from a wedding dress professional! This blog is perfect for future and current adventurous brides! 🌿 You can check out our Q&A on the blog- link in bio!

Stacy & Jason are married! 🌿 These two are simply the sweetest! They drove all the way from Michigan to Tennessee to get married with the Smokies as their backdrop! Their ceremony was held at a huge log cabin, surrounded by the closest of family and friends. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for these two! [More photos from their day in my stories!] 💕 Big thanks to @the_magnolia_venue for allowing us to take a few couple’s portraits at their beautiful venue with such a breathtaking view! ⛰

After a little break, I’m ready to get back into the wedding swing! 🌿 I’m so excited for Stacy & Jason’s intimate smoky mountain wedding tomorrow in Pigeon Forge! There are so many beautiful venues and cabins that have stunning views of the Smokies- making it a perfect place to get married! ⛰ Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs‬ ‭3:5‬-6 ‭// Sometimes I need these reminders... 2018 has not been the easiest or most fun year of adulthood (it’s also not been the worse, everything is all good, I promise), but this verse keeps me in check. The journey is part of life, whether it’s success or learning from mistakes. 🌿 I tell you this because sometimes our lives in social media seems like all rainbows and butterflies- sometimes it is and sometimes it’s not, ya know? And that’s okay. I just always want to be open, honest, and transparent. You never know when someone could use the very same words. 💕

Happy National Hammock Day! 🌿 My hammock is one of my favorite pieces of outdoor gear. Not only do I love camping/backpacking with it, but love setting it up on a beautiful summer day just to read a book and enjoy the shade. ⛰ Tell me the color of your hammock in the comments!

Hey y’all! Happy #fridayintroductions! I’ve been feeling a little homesick so I thought I’d tell y’all about where I grew up! 🌿 Im a born and raised Marylander, but not from Baltimore or any of the DC suburbs! (Yes, I love crabs, Natty Boh and our Maryland state flag!) I grew up in a town called Boonsboro, which is located in Western Maryland. My house was about two minutes from the closest trailhead to the Appalachian Trail, so it was basically in my backyard. This photo was taken at Maryland Heights, a trail that overlooks Harper’s Ferry, WV. Boonsboro and Harper’s Ferry are known for their historical roots in the Civil War, making it such an awesome place to live and visit! ⛰ Where are you guys from?! I’d love to know where you guys grew up and called home! 🦀
