Kat and Peyton had a beautiful Tennessee wedding day celebrating their love surrounded by beloved family and friends. When thinking about their wedding photos, Kat and Peyton knew that they wanted to genuinely enjoy their wedding day and allow the photographer to capture the natural, organic, beautiful moments from the magical day. Documentary wedding photography was the perfect style for the lovely couple. After meeting incredible documentary style wedding photographer, Jay Farrell Photography, it was clear that they all had the same vision for the wedding photos, and the results are incredible. Jay Farrell Photography also captured Kat and Peyton’s engagement session, which you can view here!
Kat and Peyton first met in high school through mutual friends and had been dating for six years before saying “I do.” They had such a beautiful, joyous wedding day despite the wild Tennessee spring weather that was not willing to cooperate on their wedding day. There were several small rain showers during the group photos and first look, but everyone remained optimistic! They found out later that there would be a major downpour, but nothing was going to dampen the joy on Kat and Peyton’s special day!
The beautiful wedding took place at a newer Tennessee venue, Tomlinson Family Farm, in Lebanon, Tennessee. The venue provided the perfect rustic setting while also letting the elegance of the wedding design shine through. We love the simple, elegant whites and greenery throughout the wedding design. There is nothing more timeless than white and green décor with beautiful, romantic elements, like the gorgeous bouquet with touches of soft blush and pink flowers. Couples have been loving this classic look for 2017 weddings, and we love how Kat and Peyton chose to incorporate these timeless elements into their Tennessee barn wedding!
Jay Farrell Photography loved spending the day capturing the beauty and love between Kat and Peyton that they so naturally exude. He also enjoyed having the opportunity to spend a little time with the couple after the ceremony to capture the romance and love from the moment. These were the only few posed photos after the ceremony before diving into the fun and excitement of the beautiful reception. The happiness and joy from the day are present in each beautiful photo captured by Jay Farrell Photography.
“It’s these magic moments I watch for, nothing here would have worked if I tried to orchestrate it. Documentary / photojournalist wedding photography hinges on an un-posed approach and using the real moments that happen. It’s beautiful. Everyone enjoys the day and it all gets captured behind the scenes.” – Jay Farrell Photography
