As a wedding photographer, I had the pleasure of photographing a stunning wedding at The Woodlands venue at Howe Farms, located just a short drive from Chattanooga, TN. This new venue is truly a gem with its Italian villa-inspired architecture and large stone fireplace, making it a perfect location for a romantic wedding. The Woodlands venue offers both indoor and outdoor ceremony options, allowing for couples to tailor their wedding day to their specific desires. With the venue’s black and white facade, any color palette is sure to pop and make for amazing photos.
Inside, the venue boasts a stunning main hall with tall ceilings and plenty of natural light pouring in from the large windows. The hall is decorated with elegant chandeliers, hardwood floors, and white-washed walls that provide a neutral canvas for any wedding theme or color scheme.
For couples who want to exchange their vows outdoors like Kinsey and Cole, the Woodlands has a beautiful ceremony space that features a wooden arbor draped in greenery and flowers, with a backdrop of rolling hills and fields as far as the eye can see.
Although the venue is beautiful, what really made this wedding special was Kinsey’s vision for her big day. She chose a jewel tone color scheme that looked incredible against the backdrop of The Woodlands. The bride’s stunning bouquet incorporated deep reds, purples, greens, and golds, which were carried throughout the wedding decor, from the table settings to the bridesmaids’ dresses. It all looked absolutely stunning!
Kinsey and Cole are the epitome of a perfect match. They met in high school and dated long distance while in college, so seeing them tie the knot was such a joy. Their love for each other was evident throughout the day, and it was a true honor to capture it on camera. One of the most unique aspects of Kinsey and Cole’s wedding, and one of my favorite parts of the day was their exit. Instead of a traditional sparkler exit, the two Bulldog fans opted for Georgia Football spirit shakers. This made for one of my favorite exit shots of my career! It was so fun to see their guests cheering them on with these shakers as they made their exit.
Overall, The Woodlands at Howe Farms is an exceptional venue that offers couples the perfect blend of elegance and rustic charm. The stunning architecture, coupled with the surrounding natural beauty, provides an ideal backdrop for any wedding celebration. And Kinsey and Cole’s wedding was an exceptional wedding for me. Between the bride’s vision, the beautiful couple, and their incredible wedding party, it truly was a photographer’s dream come true.
