Rustic charm and scenic views at the 4H Camp Lodge in Greeneville, TN

This fall wedding was a very special occasion for my family as well as it was the big day of a beautiful bride I have been friends with since middle school! Sydney and Duncan’s wedding at the 4-H lodge close to home provided the most AMAZING fall leaves and gorgeous mountain backdrop brimming with color. Sydney’s non-traditional skirt and blouse ensemble was handmade with love by her aunt and mother, showcasing the love and devotion this family has for one another. The knee length tulle and bright plaid blouse really fit in with the fall leaves of every delightful shade of autumn. Every detail of this wedding was so thoughtful, from the special little boutonnieres with Duncan’s game controller touch to the matching Vans sneakers they all wore. Details like these are so memorable for couples and make for the most amazing photos that I am always proud to present! 

The day went off without a hitch even under the threat of forecasted rain because of Sydney’s mother’s careful planning and coordination of the entire day. She made sure the 4-H Lodge’s plenty of stunning views and rustic charm was decorated wonderfully. One of my favorite little details was how Syd wore her mother’s cross necklace. Elements of love and charm like this really show the support the family has for this couple. 

I have known Syd’s family for the longest time, and have watched her grow to love Duncan ever since they met in High School. To see them unite at this quaint ceremony is a memory I will truly cherish for years to come. I was also very thankful to be a part of this special day since my little one, Ryleigh, had a blast being one of the Gregory’s flower girls. She had just as many laughs as we did shooting this fun loving and joyful couple. Sydney and Duncan both wore a smile the entire day and reminded us all of their shared passion for one another. 

It was such an incredible honor and pleasure to shoot your special day, Sydney and Duncan! Syd, I have enjoyed knowing you and your family since middle school and I so passionately look forward to making more memories! Thank you for letting me and Ryleigh be a part of your ceremony and play a part in making your big day all the more special. 

Much love,

Alissa 💕
