The Concord Farmhouse Winter Wedding - Knoxville Wedding Inspiration

Winters in Tennessee are usually incredibly mild, but our first blustery, chilly, and overcast day of the season coincided with this session, our winter wedding inspiration styled shoot. Held at a local farmhouse, The ConcordFarmhouse as it has been named, we wanted to channel the rustic nature of the venue in styling elements while also ensuring wintery details were highlighted. 
The farmhouse, built in 1905, sits on 2 ½ acres in the small town of Farragut within Knoxville. The home feels like a step into the country amidst a city setting as it surround by woods and features a classic Southern-style covered porch. The historic home contains many original finishes, and the owners also built much of the furniture displayed in the home, including the large over-sized farmhouse table styled for this shoot. Aside from the classic white exterior, towering white columns, and quaint green shutters, this house also boasts private gardens and a phenomenal ivy archway utilized in some of our shots. 
The first decision we made regarding this inspiration were the gorgeous jewel tones that were incorporated in the floral, place settings, cake, and even the makeup. These hues evoked a winter vibe, and the copper accents through the handmade candle holders and mugs added a warmth and richness that made these colors pop even more. Lovely fur stoles paired perfectly with the flowing white Azazie gowns that allowed for graceful movement, and our groom’s navy suit featured a cozy tweed vest and tie necessary for a cool outdoor winter wedding. The rich black dahlias incorporated in the stunning bouquet and table garland also carried into the groom’s boutonniere, which was ornate but inherently masculine. Deep shades of red were also prominent on the handmade cooper calligraphy place cards at each guest’s seat. Plump berries on a spiced three-tiered naked cake and bright pink and red cranberries strewn along the table made up the other fresh elements along with deep purple plums as the centerpiece for each place setting. Fruit was another defining component of this inspiration, and we wanted all of the choices to feel like the perfect winter edibles. 
These photos make us want to snuggle up with a warm drink, but we also wanted to convey a timeless elegance with a bit more dramatic look to welcome the colder weather. Rustic, simple, and classic, we hope this farmhouse styled shoot leaves our readers feeling inspired to embrace a winter wedding.

Candoro Marble Inspiration Shoot

We love coming together with our fellow Knoxville wedding photographers, and this Candoro Marble styled shoot allowed us to do just that.   Located in South Knoxville, Candoro Marble was formerly the Candoro Mable Company and is now a historic treasure turned event center and museum. A marble exterior and elaborate ironwork are just a couple features of the property which offers an indoor venue space as well as  a covered outdoor patio and cypress tree lined lawn. You can't help but feel transported to a different time when setting foot in the building, and we were excited to highlight the character of this venue through these images.

With a New Year's  theme brought to life by Erin Morrison and Team Wedding,  this wedding inspiration included a sequined dress with gold and black accents in everything from the place settings to the cake.  Feathers and confetti made for festive additions,  and how could a couple ring in the new year without an intimate champagne toast?  Shooting side by side with our photog friends is always a great time, and we are thrilled to bring you this unique wedding inspiration today.  Cheers to 2018 and another year of adventures for Juicebeats Photography!

Spence Cabin "River Lodge" Wedding at Elkmont - SarahBeth + Josh

An adventurous couple who loves the great outdoors and special DIY details made up Sarah Beth and Josh’s big day at Spence Cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You may remember these two from their amazing foggy sunrise engagement in the sunflowers, but their wedding in such a gorgeous natural setting was just as memorable.

Surrounded by her sisters throughout the day, Sarah donned a gorgeous ivory gown with her grandmother’s pearls, and her adorable flats served as a practical “something blue.” She even added an additional element that embraced the natural setting with her free flowing flower crown. We loved the choice of stone blue accents with the bridesmaids dresses and adored that these were super flowy to evoke an ethereal vibe.

The riverside ceremony was emotional and personal, and joy absolutely radiated from Sarah , Josh, and their families. Sweet touches like a crafted windowpane timeline, old fashioned milk jug glasses, and handmade paper cranes greeted guests, and they even gave a nod to their careers as field researchers through books about wildlife and copies of National Geographic as decor. The reception also included a huge announcement that the two would be relocating to Alaska to start their journey together.

Nature is what brought these two together, and they wanted their day to feel like a culmination of that. The national park setting in Elkmont couldn’t have been more perfect for these lovebirds, and we are excited to share so many memories from this rustic celebration of the natural world. Mr. and Mrs. Monroe are gracing the blog today with their eco-friendly, river lodge wedding. Enjoy!
