I love blender weddings, what I mean to say is a wedding that is a base of this, a sprinkle of that with a dash of a little something else. Nestled sweetly into the Tennessee mountains, Tayloe Steedman & Chad Locke beautifully blended a few wedding notions into their barn wedding starting with a base of southern preppy. The vista view barn setting at Myers Point perfectly lent itself to a rustic affair, while the mountain ranges surrounding them gave a pop of the air up there feel. The result is a beautifully rustic preppy wedding that fully embraced its natural surroundings all while showing off its barn wedding roots. Natural wood centerpieces, complete with bark, were focal points while a soft palette of navy & pale pink injected a youthful flavor as well as paying homage to breast cancer awareness, something dear to couple. In true prep form, Chad, along with his groomsmen donned baby blue seersucker suits while Tayloe embodied the perfect southern bride complete with hair whipped into a chignon and a simple strand of pearls around her neck. This wedding vibe mashup is a delightful spin on barn weddings, something that was all beautifully captured by wedding photographer Cortney Smith Photography.

The idea of boudoir tends to get a way from us from time to time and drift into our own private versions of a Victoria Secret campaign. What I mean by that is they become overly drenched in light, effects, photoshop to extreme and filter like qualities. We drift from what these sessions are truly about, the essence of the person who is at center of the boudoir shoot itself. Lena Peterson Photography is one of the photographers actively seeing a way back to the true roots of it all, capturing beautiful perfect moments of real life boudoir that truly shine a light on who a person is. Perhaps its the home environment, a bit of attitude that shines through, even special moments of spontaneity that equal magic. The dreaminess here is in the beauty of the moments, the natural light, the raw beauty to it all, each of which is pretty hard to argue with. Real life boudoir is enchanting for its true story and when handled with care by someone that sees the beauty like Lena, the filters come off, the photoshop is put away and we become helplessly captivated.
