Knoxville Wedding Photographers – 2 Hodges Photography
We first met Chaylin at a summer wedding where she was working with Absolute Wedding Perfection, one of Knoxville’s best wedding planning companies, so when Chaylin and her fiance, Tayler, contacted us for their July 2017 wedding, we were beyond excited to get to work with them!
For their engagement photos, we started at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus where Chaylin and Tayler both went to college (but they actually met back in high school!) We visited several spots that were special to them including Ayres Hall, where Tayler proposed, and the spot where they ate lunch together almost everyday. After UT, we went to Gay Street for some downtown Knoxville engagement photos with the Tennessee Theater and Gay Street bridge. We absolutely loved Chaylin’s killer black dress! We always love when our couples get a little fancy for Gay Street photos!
Chaylin and Tayler are one of the sweetest couples! Just their proposal story could melt anyone’s heart. They are currently in a contest with White Lace and Promises where Tayler tells his proposal story. We can’t help but share a few excerpts of Tayler’s words:
“I met Chay five years ago at McMinnville Country Club when we were playing high school golf together. I offered to carry her clubs to the car after the round and we instantly hit it off. Three days…and three dates later, we were a happy couple. On August 13, 2016, five years to the day after I first asked Chay to be my girlfriend, I proposed to the love of my life.
“Chay has been like a princess out of a fairy tale these past five years. I wanted to give her a proposal fit for such a princess, so I planned out the day for months and months on end. I decided to propose through a scavenger with me (and the ring) as the prize at the end. …
“I was waiting with it in hand in front of Ayres Hall on the Hill at UT. … I handed her the clue that was not really a clue. It told her to turn around and read it. The clue was a list of promises I made to Chay. I intend to keep those promises till the day I die. When she finished reading, she turned around and saw me down on one knee. I honestly have no idea what I even asked, but I know she said yes to it.”
Without a doubt, we cannot wait for this fairytale wedding day at Stonehenge Golf Club and Dorchester Country Club in Crossville, Tennessee, with some of our favorite wedding pros including Drew Holloway with Ogle Entertainment Light and Design, Echelon Florist, and Cakery Bakery.
