Terra + Jonathan – Capitol Theatre in Maryville, TN


June 27, 2019

Terra & Jonathan’s wedding at The Capitol Theatre in Maryville, Tennessee

She had me at “teal.”

I love every shade of blue-green, from aqua to turquoise to that dark, moody “Mystic Forest” color I painted my kitchen walls back in 2006. But teal is my absolute favorite color. It’s in my living room rug, on our lampshades, and even my business logo and marketing materials are teal. So when Terra told me her wedding color, and that even her hair would be teal, I was in. Sign me up!

Terra & Jonathan fused traditional elements of vows and exchanging of rings with ancient, pagan non-traditional rituals like handfasting into their unique ceremony. Afterwards, the ladies changed into flapper dresses for group photos and party time.

The Capitol Theatre has tons of photo eye candy with red velvet wall draping, an enormous on-stage chandelier, an old school marquee out front with the couple’s name and a gorgeous bridal suite. But I also love doing photos downstairs in the Hollywood Lounge & Emerald Room. It truly transports you back to a time of prohibition, underground gambling, and the allure of the Roaring Twenties.

I have to add – after spending the first half of my working life in a concert/live music environment, I can attest that no venue around can hold a candle to the Capitol Theatre’s “Cinemagic” receptions. The lighting, lazers, video, fog and audio are seriously on point. They really know how to turn any event into a state-of-the art dance party!

Terra & Jonathan exited their big day in a cloud of bubbles and entered their future in a vintage Rolls Royce.

Congrats, Mr. & Mrs. Kile!
