JUSTIN + KC | married
Standing Stone State Park Knoxville Tennessee

We first met with KC & Justin through the wonderful world of technology. Since they live out near Knoxville and we’re in Murfreesboro it was much easier to chat with them via Skype. We all immediately got along and knew we would have a ton of fun on the wedding day. A few month before the wedding we made a trip out to Standing Stone to take their engagement photos and see what they had planned for their special day.

Like torrential down-pouring, flood warnings pour. But that wasn’t about to stop them. They love the outdoors and were happy to embrace the weather. It was actually magical. It rained from the start of the ceremony until the end. IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0524They said if it rains on your wedding day it is good luck. We’ll these two are extremely lucky.

They doubled as fans too! And the Wedding Bingo is such a fun idea.IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0465IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0464KC was absolutely gorgeous. Her dress was perfect for her. It was simple and elegant, just like she is. We couldn’t have thought of a more fitting and complimenting dress for her to have worn. It accentuated her natural beauty & didn’t distract from the beautiful Tennessee outdoors of Standing Stone.IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0428IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0401IvoryDoorStudio_StandingStoneStatePark_Justin+KC-0388KC made these awesome paintings as a gift for her fiance.
