Jessica & Adam were married at The Stables in LaFollette, TN. With their friends, family, and 5 year old daughter as the flower girl, Jessica and Adam said “I do” under a beautiful stone trellis as a waterfall trickled behind them. It was such a gorgeous fall day! Loads of sunshine and bright blue skies…the perfect weather to vow forever ❤ ❤
I loved Jessica’s choice of flowers and OH THOSE SHOES!! I kept telling her that if those sassy heels end up missing, don’t come looking for me! (And they were my size too…just a testament to my willpower and general distaste of theft) =0)
After a precious ceremony, photos, and a yummy dinner courtesy of Ramsey’s catering, the couple ran through sparklers and took a few minutes to ooh and ahh at the fireworks that graced the southern sky in their honor. What a send-off!
Jessica was kind enough to share her thoughts about planning and vendors with me so I could pass her knowledge on to you! Enjoy!
- “I purchased the bridal gown(Enzoani Blue), bridesmaids dresses (Bill Levkoff), and flower girl dress (the owner hand maid her dress) from Wedding Wonderland in Knoxville, TN.”

"Hairdresser and name of salon: Crystal Daniels from Hair Etc in Tazewell, TN"
"Tux Rental: Tracey's in Middlesboro, KY"
"I would have to say the budget was best spent on the photographer (of course!) and the cement pillars that we stood in front of for the ceremony. We purchased those in Corbin, KY and had them shipped in and assembled at the location because they weighed around 5,000 pounds!"
"My most memorable moment was definitely seeing the smile on Adam's face when I stepped outside..It made all those nervous butterflies in my stomach go away, and I just couldn't wait to get down the aisle to him."
"...our daughter dancing throughout the whole ceremony..Everyone loved that!"
"Caterer: Ramsey's Catering out of Knoxville." "Cake/Bakery: Bobbi Mangus from Ewing, VA"
"Having the photobooth was also a good choice..All the guests loved it!"
**I had to do a Christa collage! She was such a trooper and made her mommy and daddy very proud!**
Thanks, Jessica! Here is some additional advice from today’s beautiful bride:
Your favorite and least favorite part of planning? “My favorite part of planning would have to be the planning itself..I liked being able to see the results from all the hard work! My least favorite part would have to be all the stress, it can make you crazy!!”
What you would change, if anything? “I would have used a different florist!! Although everything turned out beautiful, he was very unprofessional and unorganized!! Also, I would have changed the position of the sun, lol..It was brutal!!”
Any advice for future brides? “My advice for future brides would be to slow down and just enjoy the whole experience! Also, don’t let the little things get you stressed out because in the end it will all turn out great!”
