Knoxville Wedding Photographer - Blush + Burgundy Rustic East Tennessee Wedding


Matt and Mandy’s laid back outdoor wedding in East Tennessee matched their personalities perfectly. This fun-loving couple moved from Knoxville to Michigan so Mandy could study law. But don’t let that law degree fool you - these two are always ready for a good time!

Matt and Mandy planned a simple ceremony with rustic decor. It left room for what truly mattered to them: friends and family. Their day was full of simple personal touches that made sure everyone had a great time: A friend helped with makeup, while the officiant and musician for the ceremony were also family friends. During the reception, a monogrammed cornhole set, custom designed matchboxes, and cigars as favors spread the laid back fun to their guests as well.

Floral designs included huge burgundy blossoms and blush accents, matching the mismatched burgundy bridesmaids’ dresses and blush flower girls’ dresses perfectly. Talk about a dream fall wedding color scheme! The decor included raw wood and tree branch display. The simple layered cake on a rustic tree branch display, included the same burgundy blooms from Mandy’s bouquet.

After the reception, guests blew bubbles to say goodbye as our newlyweds left the party. It was the perfect send-off for this fun couple.
