A Modern Church Wedding in Knoxville – The Perfect Prescription

Kaley and David’s Modern Church Wedding and Bearden Banquet Hall Reception in Knoxville, TN

Kaley and David’s journey from meeting at University of Tennessee’s pharmacy program led them to a beautiful modern church wedding followed by a joyous reception at Bearden Banquet Hall in Knoxville, TN. I had the pleasure of documenting every heartfelt moment of their special day, and I am thrilled to share the highlights with you.

Wedding Ceremony at Shoreline Church

Kaley and David chose to exchange their vows in their home church, Shoreline Church in west Knoxville. The clean lines provided the perfect backdrop for a hand-built arbor draped in white fabric & flowers. Shoreline has contemporary, concert-style lighting which I love coming from a live music background!

The Radiant Bride

Kaley, a pharmacist with a classic style, looked absolutely radiant in her wedding gown. The satin ballgown and off-the-shoulder neckline highlighted her grace. The look was completed with a simple but elegant cathedral length veil adorned with scalloped lace along the bottom. Her bouquet was a stunning arrangement of neutral whites. She truly reminded me of a Disney princess!

The Dapper Groom

David, a fellow pharmacy school graduate, was equally dashing in his tailored suit. His choice of a classic cobalt blue perfectly complemented his pale green tie and the neutral florals. Together, Kaley and David exuded style and sophistication, creating an enchanting visual narrative that unfolded throughout the day.

White Florals and Pastel Elegance

The floral arrangements were neutral whites lending an air of sophistication. Kaley’s bridesmaids, dressed in pastel green, added a touch of softness to the celebration. The combination of neutral florals and pastel attire created a harmonious visual palette that enhanced the overall aesthetic of the day.

Bearden Banquet Hall Reception

Following the heartfelt ceremony, the celebration continued at the Bearden Banquet Hall. Nestled in the heart of west Knoxville, this venue provided the ideal space for Kaley and David’s ballroom reception. The hall’s spacious layout allows couples to decorate and customize the room to their unique needs. It set the stage for an unforgettable evening filled with laughter, love, and lots of dancing.

Kaley and David’s modern church wedding and Bearden Banquet Hall reception were a true testament to love, style, and the joy of togetherness. As a Knoxville wedding photographer, it was an honor to document the beauty of their special day.
