Knoxville Wedding Photographer – 2 Hodges Photography
Melanie and Jason had a spring wedding on the first Sunday in May at Knoxville’s premier beach venue, the Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm. What’s fun is that we shot a wedding on the first Sunday in May last year at the same Knoxville wedding venue, and both brides are friends, having served on mission trips to Haiti.
However, something very unique to Melanie and Jason’s wedding is that they were the first to hold their ceremony at Hunter Valley’s newest ceremony site. Like most of the options at the Pavilion, the new space offers a view of the lake. We think the details that makes this new site particularly unique are the stadium style seating with gorgeous stone paths.
Melanie and Jason began their days off-site with Melanie at the Best Western at Cedar Bluff and Jason at their new home. They opted to not have a First Look, but they did exchange incredibly sweet letters. Our favorite part was hearing both of them say, “These are the same words I wrote.”
Both Melanie and Jason are not native to Knoxville, so they made sure to incorporate the coming together of Missouri and Illinois in Tennessee. Melanie chose a lovely yellow and gray color scheme, perfect for a sunny day, and details created by the team at Hunter Valley were gorgeous, as always. Jim Ogle with Ogle Entertainment Light and Design rounded out the day with great light, great sound and great music. We especially appreciated his efforts to make sure the wedding party was hydrated during photos in the sun.
We hope you enjoy Melanie and Jason’s lovely spring wedding in Knoxville.
To Melanie and Jason: Thank you so much for letting us celebrate the start of your marriage as Knoxville wedding photographers among some of the nicest family and friends we could imagine. You have been a blessing to us since we met you, and we hope your wedding photos are a treasure for you always.
