Julie & Nick Wedding part 2 – Ramsey House – Knoxville, TN

April 28, 2011

Are you ready for part 2 of this adorable wedding?  Yes, yes you are!

The ceremony took place in front of the Ramsey House.  They used peaches to line the aisle.

Some guest book table details.  I love how they pulled in the symbol of the tree with the slice of tree and the pillow!  Julie´s friend Shannon designed the pillow from her invitations and gave it to her as a present at  her bridal shower, love! Julie also custom designed her programs and had them printed by Millers Professional Imaging.

Guests signed a book that Julie had made using their engagement photos plus photos of them throughout the past year.  She added text that told their beautiful love story!

This adorable burlap banner is from Etsy seller Funkyshique.

The super talented Jill Andrews sang “Edelweiss” as Julie and her mom walked down the aisle.

Bruce Edwards delivered a very sweet and personal ceremony.

Julie said that one of their favorite decisions for the ceremony was to face outward towards their guests.  Being able to see everyone made them feel so much more connected to their friends and family.  Julie and Nick are two of the most thoughtful people – they put thought and meaning into every part of their wedding!

It was also really important to them to write and read their own vows.  Julie almost couldn’t finish hers because she was overcome with emotion so she paused, and kept smiling up at Nick while everyone said “you can do it girl!” It was super sweet and definitely my favorite part of the ceremony.  Their vows were so GOOOOOOOOOD, so real, so genuine and full of love!


Julie used Lorie Fox-Robledo of The Ribbon Cutters as her day of event planner.  Even if you don’t use a wedding stylist or planner, having someone there on wedding day to make sure everything goes according to plan is invaluable.  Lori and her team are sweet as pie and did an incredible job!

More amazing florals by Lisa Foster.  Julie is an amazing potter.  She spent months making all of these vases at the Knoxville Fine Arts and Crafts Center, over 70 in total!! She added their tree symbol and gave them away as gifts at the end of the day.  Can you believe it? Quite possibly the coolest thing ever.

For the table runners, Julie´s mom used burlap and floral fabric.  Simple and so so lovely! Also, I really love the slabs of tree trunk!

Childhood photos were hung for guests to see.

Tables and chairs were provided by Rentals Rentals.

I think this flag bunting is just so darn cute!  Julie made it herself!

Angel Adkins of Angel Cakes and Confections did a fab job with the cake as always.  Her work blows me away every time.

The reception food was provided by Julie´s best friend from college, Jamie, and her mom Sheila.  I have to give them an extra special shout out because the food was divine – guests snacked on gourmet breads and cheeses, pesto, spreads and fruit!

Julie’s good friends, The Sheets Family, played bluegrass for the reception, they rock by the way.

Jill Andrews sang “Pretty Flowers” for their first dance.

Friends and family gave their speeches.

Julie’s mom´s was especially sweet and emotional.

Getting their twist on!

Isn’t Ramsey House such a beautiful outdoor venue?

One of their guests searched the lawn until she found a four leaf clover for the two lovebirds, isn´t that the sweetest thing?

I loved loved loved this wedding!!! Julie is one of my best friends and it was such a special day for both of them, I felt so incredibly honored to photograph it for them. I want to THANK them so much for flying Martin and I home for it :) I also want to thank their incredible families for being so sweet to us, we love all of you!
