It all started as an office romance. . .a little like Jim and Pam perhaps. It did not take long before they just knew and when you know you know. . . so why wait? Exactly. . .you don’t :) A proposal at Ross’ Landing last year and an engagement session in somewhat the same spot then lead to an incredibly intimate ceremony with immediate family and close friends at Lookout Mountain’s beautiful Grandview. I have immensely enjoyed getting to know this couple. Lindsey and I have chatted very frequently since we first met early last fall and during the day of the ceremony both families invited us in warming as if we were their own. Thank you to both families for making us feel at home as we watch a beautiful thing unfold. Thank you for allowing us to be apart!!!

Lindsey you are gorgeous. . .

and your groom fierce. . .

Lindsey you are adorable!

Lindsey admits to being “a bit of a plant geek” and first heard of her now favorite flower, Hellebores, on a beloved gardening show on HGTV. Lindsey had a special request for said flowers in her bouquet. While these flowers are out of season this time of year, florist, Gloria, JUST so happened to have them growing in her yard and they JUST so happened to decide to bloom. Lindsey was both ecstatic and surprise to see this favorite flower nestled in her wedding day bouquet. Gorgeous florals by Making Arrangements.

Love unprompted moments such as these. . .

Far from their first days together that began with several feet in distance on the couch, this couple has impeccable chemistry chalk full of happiness and emotion. If one had never met Emily and Travis they still could blatantly tell that on their wedding day. . .they were happy. A happiness that evoked emotion and a happiness that made smile muscles ache. An emotional day always draws me to using primarily black and white. Color, which can sometimes be distracting, when absent puts more focus on the emotion of a picture. Therefore you will see see a large part of this post is absent of color.

While the ceremony was full of emotion, the reception was strictly party. From the bridesmaids singing “Oh Maria” to Travis’ fraternity brothers singing an initiation to his bride to non stop dancing in between, Emily & Travis’ reception was non stop fun! {Complete side note: I was singing “Oh Maria” tonight and Ada kept saying “more, more”. Jimmy commented that it is the first time he has ever heard anyone ask me to sing more. In all honesty I really can’t sing and Ada was laughing every time I started up again, so I am pretty sure she agrees.}

Emily and Travis if your wedding day was any indication, you two have a long incredibly happy life together. I wish you all the best!!!

I am convinced I could not even had paid Emily to not-smile on her wedding day and I love that fact about her!

A last minute adjustment by the beautiful bride before she proceeded to see her groom.

I think it is safe to say Travis was very happy to see his bride.

The girls found a perfect spot perched in the window to witness Emily and Travis’ first look.


Did I mention the day was filled with happiness? Emily was surrounded by her sister and closest friends.

This completely unprompted moment has to be my all time favorite interaction between a bride and her daddy. I.-Love-This! It was definitely an emotional day for both, but they carved out small portions of their day just for them.

The low-lite church offered an intimate feel to a very crowded church.

As mentioned prior, it was an emotional day and I am thankful the emotion in this shot was captured.

It was if like most little girls, this flower girl was dreaming about a wedding one day, just for her.

What a great addition to the couple’s reception site, a personalized marquee. . .

Parker was so cute while in his mommy’s belly, but he is even cuter on this side. Nothing short of adorable, Parker is such a laid back little guy. He stayed awake the entire session and was perfectly content 99% of the time. Babies change so much and so very fast. I am very excited […]

 

Parker was so cute while in his mommy’s belly, but he is even cuter on this side. Nothing short of adorable, Parker is such a laid back little guy. He stayed awake the entire session and was perfectly content 99% of the time.

Babies change so much and so very fast. I am very excited to document Parker’s rapid growth within his first year. So expect to see much more of this little cutie!

For MANY more pics be sure to check out Parker’s slideshow by clicking HERE.

Parker with his sock monkey for scale. You make your sock monkey look very big right now, but not for long. . .  :)

I could not decide which of the following I liked the best. Oscar is such a wild man so this was very uncharacteristic of him to be this still :)
