Josh & Ryan Wedding / by Kendall Whiteley

"I guess you could say we were meant to meet on the dance floor. Now we will never dance on our own." Josh and Ryan officially met in Kentucky on New Year's Eve in 2009. Six years later, after living long-distance and reuniting in NYC, Josh and Ryan were living together in New York City when Josh ask Ryan to marry him. Ryan, of course, said yes! 

Having family in Tennessee and Kentucky, these two decided on a southern wedding in TN. They chose The Standard in Knoxville, mixing southern and industrial, for their perfect day. We knew these two would be traveling from New York, with tons of friends and family traveling from other parts of the country, so the pressure was on. Although, we found that their friends and family were just like them- in the sense that they were welcoming, loving, friendly and genuine so we left feeling like part of the family. 

Josh & Ryan skipped tradition and got ready together and then we took them to our favorite city spots. The handwritten vows read during their ceremony made us ALL happy cry and jump for joy all at the same time! They brought a little bit of NY flavor with their build your own tacos, provided by All Occasions, inspired by their favorite city restaurant. It was truly just a perfect day!  Josh's mother is one of the fabulous sisters who own Sister Vintage Rentals here in Knoxville. The sisters came together, with tons of their supplies & decor, to create the stunning setups you see! As we walked through each room, our jaws just dropped! Every detail in each room, on each table, on every sofa, and on every wall was not overlooked. Just look at that reception decor! Those hand-built farm house tables were to die for! But our favorite HAD to be the ceremony setup, which included 8 antique doors and ladders strung with amazing greenery (we also absolutely adore the antique rug). The Sisters surely did outdo themselves! Witness all of this perfection for yourself!
