Jessica and Chad - East Tennessee Wedding - Jaclyn Paige Photography

I just love it when people get all emotional on their wedding day.  As a photographer, I am in fairly close proximity to a couple for the entirety of their day, and sometimes those tears of joy are contagious! Jessica and Chad's wedding had me wiping my eyes several times throughout the day, like when... Jessica's mom had a "moment" as she helped Jessica with her dress; the beautiful bride's father saw her for the first time; the bridesmaids prayed for Jessica just before the ceremony started; Chad walked into the the sanctuary and the realization hit him that he was marrying his beautiful bride; Jessica's dad escorted her down the aisle as half the room sobbed happy tears; and an uncle gave a unity candle message that reminded me of my own wedding vows.  I don't think another wedding has made me more weepy!  Family and friends packed into the First Baptist Church of Bean Station to witness the union.  Jessica's gown came from Annie's Room while Chad and the guys were outfitted by Savvi Formal Wear.  Somethin' Sassy Florals provided the flowers, and all their cheery yellow contrasted perfectly with the gray tuxes and navy bridesmaids dresses from David's Bridal.  Take a look at just a few of our favorites from the day:

Stacie and Doug - Wedding at The Barn at Chestnut Springs - Jaclyn Paige Photography

When Janna Fowler from All About Weddings called me for this wedding, I was so excited to work with her again.  Janna is a very organized, very calming presence at a wedding, which makes her a terrific wedding coordinator!  The Barn at Chestnut Springs is the perfect spot for a rustic wedding, with a lovely outdoor ceremony area that faces its own private hillside and valley, brimming with East Tennessee charm and beauty.  Stacie and Doug planned this destination wedding from their Ohio home, so we met for the first time on the wedding day; and they only wanted a small amount of wedding coverage, so our time with them was limited.  Just the same, in the time we did work with them, Joshua and I found Stacie and Doug to be a loving, funny, generous couple, and we predict a long happy marriage for them! Their officiant, Don Anderson of Defining Moments Ministries, perfectly incorporated Stacie's kids into the ceremony, and their DJ from Ogle Entertainment provided the perfect music for both the ceremony and the celebration afterwards!  Make sure to "Like" Jaclyn Paige Photography on Facebook so you can tag yourself in any of the images you see here!  --Jaclyn
