Sydney & Tristen
There's just something about a crisp, fall wedding. Sydney and Tristen Ingram gathered their families and friends to celebrate their union at Sandy Creek Farms in Springville, Tennessee. When I arrived, the bridesmaids had already gotten their makeup and hair done, and had gotten dressed so they could help Sydney with her final touches. Sydney got into her sleek, long-sleeved gown as her sister and maid of honor did the finishing touches on her hair. We headed right outside of the getting ready spot to do a first look in the venue's greenhouse. After a short and sweet first look, the bride and groom took some couple portraits in the greenhouse.
We took some time to take some family and bridal party photos before we spent our time getting some one-on-one shots of the bride and groom. Honestly, this couple is model material; they were both very natural behind the camera.
The bride and groom hid away while guests started to arrive. Then once 4:30 hit, entrances began. The bride was walked down the aisle by her father, who then gave the bride away to the groom. Even though the ceremony, was short, sweet, and to the point, many tears were shed by the groom, bride, and guests. After the groom and bride shared their first kiss as a married couple, we snuck away to get some "just married" photos on the venue's island.
The bride and groom did their first dance once they entered the reception. After dinner was served, the bride and groom cut the cake. The rest of the night was spent spending time with family and friends after the bride and groom did a faux sparkler exit.
One of my favorite things about this wedding was how family oriented it was. The bride's main concern most of the day was making sure everyone was taken care of. I spent a lot of time taking photos of their family and friends that were near and dear to their heart. Congratulations Sydney and Tristen, it was an honor to photograph your beautiful wedding.
