Lauren + Drew // Knoxville Botanical Garden + Arboretum Wedding // April 7, 2018

I first met Lauren and Drew last August when they hired me for their engagement pictures. They weren’t 100% sure at the time if they were going to have a wedding in East Tennessee, and talked about possibly eloping at Disney. Not long after their session, Lauren messaged me and told me that they had decided to plan a wedding in Knoxville in April of this year! I was so excited to work with them again (and to photograph her GORGEOUS engagement ring for the second time). Once again, East Tennessee gave us crazy weather predictions the whole week leading up to the wedding, but on Saturday we were able to take all of their bride + groom portraits outside! Their soft color palette and floral designs went so well with the backdrop of the Knoxville Botanical Garden + Arboretum. Here are some of my favorite photos from their day!
