The Winfree Wedding – Knoxville, TN

I present to you the lovely, Christmas-themed wedding of Janine and Darrell Winfree complete with greenery, a floral crown, lace, red berries, and gingerbread.Their Knoxville celebration began with a first look at Ijams Nature Center, then a ceremony at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Knoxville, and finishing with a unique reception aboard the Three Rivers Rambler where guests enjoyed a 90-minute ride around and outside of the Knoxville area. I’ll begin with a favorite and then start from the beginning. Enjoy!

Such lovely winter details, complete with a gingerbread house and gingerbread couple made by the bride’s oh-so talented mother and sister.

I present to you only my favorite sibling picture ever. See the resemblance?

I haven’t shot an engagement in a year and a half (first paid photo shoot actually), so I am SO excited that I get to blog these photos today! These two are both are both so sweet and have an awesome story. We spent the first part of our session at the beautiful Scarritt Bennett center near Vanderbilt University where fall was just beginning to show it’s colors. Enjoy the photos!
