Nikki and Josh’s Rustic Vintage Wedding with Knoxville Wedding Photographer

Nikki and Josh had a GORGEOUS day for their wedding. I was so excited to have a chance to photograph again at The Barn at Chestnut Springs in Sevierville, Tennessee. The feel of it encompasses the best of the Smoky Mountains and the vintage, rustic style that permeates the area. Krystle Peskie of Krystle Whitney Event Design and Planning  did a fabulous job organizing the florals from Melissa Timm Designs. I think you will be as intrigued by all of the beautiful details as I was!

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

I carry your heart with me
by E.E. Cummings

I absolutely adore this dress!! 

Josh’s groomsmen were so silly, and so much fun to be around. 🙂

Nikki and Josh shared a prayer on opposite sides of the wall before the ceremony.

I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad 
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad

All I wanna do is grow old with you. 
I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches 

build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growin’ old with you.
I’ll miss you, kiss you, give you my coat when you are cold.
Need you, feed you, I’ll even let you hold the remote control.

So let me do the dishes in the kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you’ve had too much to drink.

Oh I could be the man to grow old with you.
I wanna grow old with you.

I want to grow old with you

Here, you can see some of the beautiful details that my assistant, Nelya, was able to capture while I was elsewhere.
