Sally & Whit’s Fall Wedding at Enchanted Valley Barn – Sevierville, TN

Sally and Whit’s Fall Wedding at Enchanted Valley Barn in Sevierville, TN

It’s ok to ugly cry. I’ve been photographing weddings for 12 years and sometimes I still ugly cry.

When the bride’s teenage son gets choked up as he opens his special gift from mom, a watch with “I love you all the time,” inscribed on the back…ugly cry. When his little sister is watching him walk their mom down the aisle, bawling…ugly cry. When my reception lighting is on point..well, you get the picture.

Sally and Whit met on a blind date set up by a mutual friend. Their wedding was originally going to be right outside the Sevier County Courthouse but an event was already booked, so they decided on Enchanted Valley Barn instead. Enchanted Valley Barn is situated on 13 picturesque acres and has been in the same family for almost 100 years. It is a beautiful venue for weddings!

It was the first super chilly evening of this fall, and the leaves had changed drastically that week. The bride chose a non-traditional gold sequin dress which contrasted beautifully with the yellow, red and orange leaves. East Tennessee in the fall can put on quite a show. Add a gorgeous bride and groom, and you have a wedding photographer’s dream.

Congrats to you, Mr. and Mrs. Helton! It was a pleasure to capture your wedding day!
