Paige & John

April 23

Walland, Tennessee

From the Photographer: Paige and John had the wedding of their dreams. The two were married in front of their closest family and friends at Blackberry Farm in Walland, TN – named North America’s #1 Resort by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Paige and John are from Chicago and have family all over the country, so it was a southern destination wedding in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Paige and her mother, who helped with the design, have a beautiful and elegant style that comes through in all of the gorgeous details from Paige’s wedding. Starting with the venue, Blackberry Farm is set in one of the most beautiful parts of the Smoky Mountains with a fully functioning farm and 5 star dining facility with a philosophy dedicated to sustainable farming and farm to table cuisine. On the property Blackberry has llamas, horses, truffle dogs, sheep, among other animals and fish. Their amazing ceremony took place on the lawn of the main house, overlooking the mountains. The reception took place at Blackberry’s beautiful barn dining facility, and the details that Paige and John incorporated are almost too many to list. The wanted to stick with the feel of Blackberry Farm’s already beautiful, rustic atmosphere, but enhance it with touches of Paige and John’s taste. For the flowers, they enlisted the help of NYC-based florist Julio Jimenez, incorporating hydrangeas, peonies, orchids, roses, blooming pear branches, among many other spring blooms. To soften some of the barn textures, they added moss, tulip bulbs, votives, and many candles. All in all, Paige and John had an incredibly romantic wedding that involved all of their closest friends and family in a breathtaking place for an unforgettable weekend. ~ Natalie, Watson-Studios
