Webb Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

“Tis the season to be married.”

We are over the moon excited to finally share with you the beautiful union of Ashlond & Justin. We have known Ashlond for a few years (she is actually Kendall’s hair stylist!) and have truly enjoyed being apart of this amazing journey with her & Justin. These two are the kindest, most genuine, and perfectly matched couple we have ever seen. You can SEE the love in their eyes when they look at each other and you can FEEL the love when you are in their presence. There are SO many wonderful things we could say about this wedding, this couple and this perfect day. We have decided to let you hear all of the wonderful details from the beautiful bride herself. Read on to hear Ashlond detailing her most perfect day.

“Considering how obsessed I am with Christmas, planning a Christmas inspired wedding came so naturally. I kept seeing all these beautiful Christmas/Winter weddings with the dark emerald green/cranberry/gold color combo and I immediately knew this was how I would envision my wedding. We knew we wanted the ceremony to be special. It was extremely important for Justin to get married in a church. We both grew up together in a small church that could not seat our guest count so we knew we would have to find a different church other than our home church. We had actually attended a wedding two years prior at Graystone Presbyterian Church and fell in love with the stain glass windows, high ceilings, and the intimacy it brought. After picking December 1st, I knew I wanted to go tour Mill and Mine for the reception. We immediately fell in love. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location than The Mill and Mine for our reception.”

I remember everyone telling me through the whole wedding process to “take everything in the day of” and I truly felt like i did. I tried to take in every moment and not have on my mind what was happening next. If there was one piece of advice I could give to a bride is-enjoy the day, take every moment and emotion you feel and try to bottle it up.” XOXO Ashlond Webb

Thomas Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

“In your smile I see something more beautiful than the stars.” – Beth Revis

We met Lindsey & Aaaron to discuss their wedding day plans and immediate felt a connection. We found so many similarities in our relationships as we started getting to know one another. Lindsey is a new wedding/lifestyle photographer herself (she is amazing, you should check her out!). They have been together 6 years just like us. Even the start of their relationship was similar to ours. To say we were excited for their wedding day is an understatement. We were counting down the days just as they were. Spoiler alert-it did NOT disappoint.

At the end of the fall season, the big day finally came! The Knoxville Botanical Gardens was the perfect venue for this eclectic and eccentric couple. The hair, the gown, the flowers, the style, the love and the JOY on this day is truly unmatchable. The jewel toned accents of color + the geometric shapes were to die for. We could go on and on. Lindsey’s two piece blush gown is one we will never forget + her mismatched bridesmaids dresses made for a memorable group. After getting pampered by her bridesmaids, it was time to see her soon-to-be hubby! Aaron chose a private spot in the gardens and it was so perfect-just look at his reaction! You could sense the relief Lindsey felt after she saw Aaron, planning a wedding is hard yall, and seeing him made it all worth it! We love witnessing and documenting happy, in love couples!

Jeffries Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

“May the golden moments of today become the treasured memories of tomorrow.”

One year ago, almost to the date, Heather became Cody’s fiance after many years of dating. In the fall, they finally became Mr & Mrs! Held at Ramble Creek Vineyards, on a warm October evening, family and friends gathered to witness this amazing day. Heather was THE most stunning bride in her fit-n-flare detailed gown. The golden colors of the season paired perfectly with the deep colors in the bouquets. As the sun began to set, the ceremony began and there was not a dry eye when Heather walked down that aisle. Cody could not keep that grin off his face ALL night! After their grand entrance, the band (which was SO FUN!!! ) began to play and the dance floor was full until the end of the night!

Even though their wedding day was perfect, it did follow with some terrible news. Shortly after Heather & Cody’s wedding, we received a call that would break our hearts. Cody’s beautiful mother suddenly passed away. When a tragedy like that happens, we are reminded just how important our job is to document these golden moments. You never know when you are capturing someones last memories with a loved one. Rest in Peace Jackie.

Cantor by Kendall Whiteley

Family might be defined as a group of people who are related to each other, but it's more than that. It's a meaningful connection, an experience. It's an incredible and unbreakable bond—created by mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers. It's comfort in a world of uncertainty.

The Cantor family is one who is very near and dear to our hearts. We met Rhiannon & Christopher in June of 2016. We were able to document a very special milestone for them in 2016-their marriage! We fell in love with them immediately so when we saw they were expecting, we were over the moon excited for them! We knew little Louie would be THE cutest with THE best parents. We could not wait to meet him.

A year and a half later, we finally got to meet Louie! Rhiannon & Christopher currently live in California for for Christopher’s career. Rhiannon is from a small town in Tennessee and during the holidays they were able to visit. We were SO thrilled they called us to come out to their families property to document their little family. Being a model, Rhiannon has so many pictures of herself but not many of her with her boys! We HAD to change that! It was seriously the best evening with these guys. Louie is obviously so dang adorable. We loved seeing the love & joy shared between them. They are in the middle of planning a HUGE move overseas so these moments documented mean even more since they will not be returning to the states for some time. We sure will miss these cuties! xx

Mull Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

“You can go wherever you want. In the end, you’ll always come back to those who are really meant for you.”

We have been a little behind on blogging weddings. We ended our 2018 with 40 weddings shot, all amazing and all deserving of an incredible blog! Today, we will be sharing about Sarah and Garrett’s special day! It was definitely one we will never forget! 

Last summer, during their family vacay to St Simons island, Garrett + his twin boys (they are THE cutest!) asked Sarah to be with them always & forever. She said DUH and immediately began planning the wedding of her dreams. On October 19, that day finally happened! Held at The Quarry in Tennessee, the most perfect day unfolded surrounded by friends and family from all over. Sarah, being a hairstylist at Josie’s Salon, had all her girls pampered all morning over donuts and mimosas. We were not surprised when we saw how beautiful everyone looked-especially Sarah! Her long sleeve, lace detailed, gown *with that gorgeous train* was absolutely incredible. 

Sarah chose to do a first look with her bridesmaids, her father AND the twins Wrylin & Carter. SO MANY EMOTIONS! All of those moments couldn’t prepare her for Garrett’s reaction to seeing her walk down the aisle. ALL of our hearts beat a little faster when we saw him tear up. Sarah told us after the ceremony that she couldn’t focus on anything but Garrett at the end of the aisle, everything else just faded away. If that’s not true love, then I don’t know what is!

Bogosian Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

One really cool thing about our business is that we are based in the town that we both grew up in. Alot of times that means we get to document people from different walks of our lives.

We get to see folks we haven’t seen since school + photograph meaningful moments for them. This was the case for beautiful bride-to-be, Kelsey, whom we both graduate high school with! It was so touching to see she was doing well, found the love of her life AND she wanted US to be apart of it all.

In August of 2017, Kelsey & Jimmy’s wedding journey began after Kelsey said YES to forever. A little over a year later, the wedding was held at The Foundry in Knoxville TN. The day was truly perfect. Surrounded by her besties, Kelsey got dolled up in preparation for the first look with her soon-to-be hubby! Once the dress was on, there was not a dry eye in the room! We took Jimmy to a secluded and private wooded area + brought Kelsey to him. Such a sweet moment! After seeing each other, they both felt SO relieved and ready to do the damn thing! After their “I-dos” it was time to celebrate! Kelsey even traded her traditional ceremony gown for a more relaxed blush gown to dance in! I mean, how stunning is she?! We loved seeing friends and family from all over celebrating these two lovebirds all night. We know they have many many many happy years ahead and them!

Hayes Elopement by Kendall Whiteley

If you’re thinking about eloping, this amazing couple will give you all the feels! 

We met Laura & Dustin awhile back, shortly after they got engaged, and were planning their dream wedding. After much consideration, countless hours of planning a wedding that wasn’t “them”, they decided to scratch it ALL and elope!! Laura & Dustin are a lot like us-nontraditional (which btw is totally okay!!!). They chose to elope in the NC mountains at Max Patch on a Wednesday. That Wednesday just happened to be there 5 year anniversary-how sweet is that?! 

The day started just like any other normal day. Laura woke up, did her own hair/makeup, drank coffee and spent time with her fav little pup. We picked her up + drove her to Max Patch! We hiked with Laura to the top where she saw Dustin for the first time, privately, and exchanged vows. NOT A DRY EYE. After that, they chose a spot and then their intimate and beautiful ceremony was held. It doesn’t get more perfect than that!

Valderrama Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

We are so excited to finally share Rachel & Sebastian’s perfect wedding day. It was truly one for the books. Check it out!

Rachel & Sebastian are the coolest + raddest couple ever. They share a love for their church, their families, helping others, exploring and traveling all over the world. When these two first started dating, Sebastian asked Rachel what her top 3 travel destinations were. Budapest, Hungary was one of them. A little over a year later, they were there. When they were visiting their 17TH country together, Hungary, Sebastian got down on one knee and asked Rachel to be his forever. How could she say no to her best friend?! And THAT ring! Yall, he did so good!

Planning a wedding in under a year is tough but Rachel & Sebastian did it with the help of close friends, family and the awesome vendors at Ramble Creek. We could not wait to see it all come together. All morning it was raining sideways and we had to move the ceremony indoors, yest Rachel STILL had a smile on her face. An hour before the ceremony was to take place, the rain completely STOPPED and that amazing team moved the ceremony outside where Rachel & Sebastian originally wanted. Rain or shine, this stunning couple became Mrs & Mrs Valderrama.

Olivia & Ben by Kendall Whiteley

“It is in the still silence of nature where one will find true bliss.”

When we first met Olivia, we knew she would be a perfect T&K bride! She is full of excitement, love, life, and is SO kind! We were thrilled she chose us to document this special time in her life. We counted down the days until her engagement session when we would get to meet her better half AND their amazing pup, Ellie.

Olivia & Ben are two peas in a pod. They bring out the best in each other and their happiness is truly contagious! After over two years of being together, Ben proposed in June at the beach (such an amazing surprise right!!!) and Olivia screamed YES! We had a blast exploring the woods, hiking up the mountains (freezing our bums off a little bit haha!) and snuggling with sweet Ellie. Olivia & Ben said they would be awkward but YALL-look at them! Are they not the cutest?!

We are SO excited to see these two become Mr & Mrs next November. It is going to be THE BEST DAY EVERRR!

Coates Wedding by Kendall Whiteley

“HOW SWEET IT IS TO BE LOVED BY YOU.”

We are thrilled to FINALLY share Chris & Heather’s wedding day with you guys! **cue “this is what dreams are made” of by Hilary Duff* Some of you may follow fashion blogger Heather Poppie (if not, check out her blog here). If you do, you know she is a lovely woman inside & out + a perfect fit to guest blog for HER wedding for us! Enjoy an insight from the bride herself while reliving her perfect wedding day through our images. XOXO T&K

“For our wedding, we wanted to it be simple, earthy, and most importantly, a reflection of us. I have always loved the look of a whimsical, ethereal wedding - my wedding Pinterest board shows all organic, simple yet elegant ideas! I have always been drawn to blush, sage, and navy blue. Something about those colors are so beautiful to me so of course, we incorporated them into our wedding day. It was such a beautiful thing to see all our ideas come to life. I think the most important thing was making sure our wedding felt like us. I had a very specific vision when it came to the overall aesthetic of our wedding, but we really wanted to have little elements that people could say, “Oh this is totally Heather and Chris.” I really couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect day. We were beyond lucky to have the best vendors and team to help put together our dream day and I am so excited to gush about everyone we worked with below to you all!”
