Ashley and Jake at The Preserve Resort

Jake and Ashley were married on a beautifully rainy day in September at The Preserve Resort in Wears Valley. They didn’t let the rain get them down… in fact, they were willing to play with umbrellas in a field nearby.

We went to The Preserve Resort 3 years ago for our friends’ wedding, and we loved the area so much, we wanted to go back. It was there that we first said “I love you”, so the place is pretty special to us.Knoxville Wedding Photographer in Pigeon Forge16Knoxville Wedding Photographer in Pigeon Forge17Knoxville Wedding Photographer in Pigeon Forge18
