Ryan + Heidi | The Barn Event Center Of The Smokies | Townsend, TN Photographer

Ryan and Heidi have been engaged for over a year. They both live in Florida and love the Smoky Mountains.  They decided to have a destination wedding in Tennessee. Heidi contacted me over a year ago and we became good friends. I have saw all the planning and wedding post on Facebook for several months, so the when her wedding day came, I couldn’t wait!

Heidi picked out her wedding date over 7 years ago. She said God laid on her heart this date even before she met Ryan. These two are great people and have a wonderful love story.

The day before the wedding is was cold, 20 degrees outside. Heidi was nervous about the weather for her wedding day, but it turned out to be sunny and a cool 45 degrees.

They didn’t plan on seeing each other before the wedding, but since her wedding was late in the evening we would’t have any time to do pictures with the mountains, so they got to do a first look.

Their first look was very special. We went out to an open field with a beautiful mountain view. Her dad ran to her and gave her a sweet hug and kiss before she went to see her future husband.

They had a beautiful ceremony at the Barn Event Center. They had all their friends and family surround them as they said their vows to one another.
