Rachel + Tyler's Johnson City, Tennessee Wedding

The Gallery Johnson City Wedding Reception

I had the honor of second shooting Rachel [of Rachel’s Rendition on YouTube] and Tyler’s wedding last year with Rachel Wells.  This was my first time photographing a wedding in a catholic church so I had butterflies in my stomach as I drove down to Bristol, Virginia on the interstate in pouring rain.  Thankfully it ended up being painless, not a single church lady fussed at me! 

Their ceremony was held in Johnson City, Tennessee – visiting there was yet another first for me and I kind of fell in love and am dying to go back for another look.  The reception location was called The Gallery – a former industrial space that has been adapted into a beautiful loft with a fireplace, exposed brick, exposed beams, hardwood floors, and chandeliers.  If you know me well, you know that I have grand dreams of having an industrial space reconfigured as a venue space one day so needless to say, I was in heaven.  I love the aesthetic of this wedding, it was so dreamy!  The soft colors, the candlelight from beautiful vintage candelabras juxtaposed with modern glass candelabras.  Truly stunning.
