Lissie & Matt’s Wedding in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Lissie & Matt had a perfect wedding day on 9-10-11 at the Stone Fort Inn in Chattanooga. I was in LOVE with this bed & breakfast! Lissie allowed lots of time during the day to get ready, which provided an easy, stress free day for us all! (And lots of time to get those wonderful detail shots!)


The flowers were done by Grafe Studio in Chattanooga and they were the talk of the day!


Lissie wore a stunning Ella Rosa dress. Her sapphire shoes were perfection!

I soooo appreciate when my brides and grooms trust me enough to let me do my thing… even if it seems a little extreme! The Stone Fort Inn is located right downtown, so I definitely wanted to take advantage of the rugged scenery. The alley that we used for the shot below was not particularly pretty in real life, but I love the way it photographed.

To say Lissie is an avid Coldplay fan would be an understatement, so it was more than fitting that she walked down the aisle to a violin accompaniment of “In My Place”. They also managed to incorporate a quote from The Princess Bride into the ceremony. “Marriage. Marriage is what brings us together today – that blessed arrangement.” I love it when people get creative! :)

Lissie & Matt were insistent on not doing things for the sake of tradition. Instead of dancing and garter tosses their reception consisted of excellent food and drinks, time talking with friends & family, and even a few games of pool! They had planned to stay at the Bed & Breakfast that night and weren’t planning to have a grand exit, so it was extra fun when the mother of the bride surprised them both with a beautiful horse and carriage! Big thanks to Chattanooga Horse Trams for providing them with a wonderful ride around the city.
