Whitley + Darius

August 29, 2020

Whitley + Darius’s Wedding day was such a beautiful and cooler August day. After many years of being together and pushing their wedding day back because of COVID this day was long awaited for.

This venue was such a stunning and unique place. It was so spacious and had the most distinctive style + design. The stone details were to die for! Their day was filled with laughter and sunshine. Their first look was filled with tears and smiles from ear to ear. We ventured down to the venues creek and took their bridal portraits. The prettiest little butterfly landed right on Darius’s finger and didn’t want to leave. It was such a sweet detail from the day. Their ceremony + toasts were filled with the sweetest words form their loved ones. They ended the perfect night dancing the night away celebrating Darius + Whitley’s lovely Wedding Day! We wish you all the best!

Lindsey + Brian Summer Wedding

July 30, 2020

Lindsey + Brian summer wedding

It was a super hot beautiful day in July, preparations were made for preventing covid and the guest list had to be cut due to govenor’s orders. Despite the list being shorter their day was so special and filled with joy. Everyone celebrated their love for one another and it truly was such a special day.

The day was perfect, Lindsey got ready with her gals and laughed all morning. She was so relaxed and you could tell she was just so happy to be marrying Brian.  They got married in the most beautiful little chapel hidden in Louisville, Ky, and the venue was just a few miles away in Simpsonville at a cute and whimsical barn. Their colors for their wedding was a mint & peach summer color, it all went beautifully together. All Guest had to

wear mask to enter the chapel, so after the ceremony all guest lined up and the Bride and Groom ran through the train of their family and friends. Their chapel ceremony and the walk through was so beautiful, and such a great way to say hello to guests. It was all so special. Only immediate family and bridal party attended the reception. They are hoping to have a bigger reception this Fall to celebrate with all the special people in their lives. All in all their day was so beautiful and their love for each other was shown throughout the day. It couldn’t have been any better.

Allison + Jared

October 24, 2019

October 12th, 2019

Allison and Jared’s wedding was so emotional and sweet, I literally cried about five different times capturing their day. Part of it was because I’ve known Allison since she was young. She was a lifeguard at our subdivision pool, and her mom was a teacher to my kiddos at Science Hill. She’s sweet and quiet and really laid-back.

She and Jared met at Western Kentucky University, even though they both grew up in Somerset. They are both still students, with Jared working toward becoming an estimator and Allison planning on attending grad school to become a behavioral analyst for children on the autism spectrum.

Jared first asked Allison out on an ice cream date, which ended up lasting five hours. Wow! After that, they were joined at the hip and got engaged when Jared kneeled down by a waterfall at a botanical garden and proposed. So romantic! A year and a half later, here we were upstairs and in back rooms of Oak Hill Baptist Church taking pictures of everyone getting ready.

Jared didn’t want to see Allison before the wedding, but they were still together before the ceremony. They each stood with their backs against either side of a pillar and held hands and prayed together. Jared looked handsome in his tux and Allison’s dress was simple and perfect. Her flower crown was so gorgeous!

Allison did do First Looks with her dad, her bridesmaids and her grandparents. Talk about tears! Her dad was crying, calling her “my baby” while he hugged her, and Allison nearly bawled in her grandparents’ arms. So very sweet. Everyone just kept saying, “Happy thoughts, happy emotions,” after someone would tear up. Ha!

When it came time for the ceremony, Jared was the one who teared up when he saw Allison. They seem crazy about each other.

The reception took place in Russell Springs at The Barn at Goose Creek, which was lit up beautifully with golden lights. The evening was also really clear, so we got some great shots of just Allison and Jared together outside. There was dancing — Allison loves to dance, though it’s not really Jared’s thing — and the night ended with a send-off with sparklers.

I am so thankful I got to be part of this special day. Allison and Jared, I wish you so much happiness in the future!

Ben + Emily

February 3, 2019

Happy one week anniversary Ben & Emily! Their day was the most beautiful winter fairytale wedding. Everything was perfect! There was so much love throughout the day!  Ben and Emily did not want to see each other before the wedding which is always a challenge for winter weddings because it gets dark so early. We lucked out and the sun shined and we were able to capture some photos right after the ceremony!  Emily’s family were a big part of my husbands life (Jeremy) growing up from his home town, they were like his family. So with that being said it was such an honor when Emily called me and asked me to be there for her special day!  Emily was just a little girl at our wedding 16 years ago and it brought back so many memories. She has become such a wonderful young lady and we are so happy for her! We can’t wait to see where Her and Ben’s life lead to!

Mackenzie + Seth

Mackenzie + Seth’s dreamy wedding day!

My great photographer friend, Creative Images by Jennifer, referred me; Tonya Lynn Weddings to Mackenzie. I had not met Mackenzie until the day of the wedding, I fell in love with her and her family!

The venue was perfect! Jessica was wonderful to work with at The Springer House in Centerville, TN.  This Venue was near and dear to Mackenzie’s heart as this land is her families 7 generation property and has stayed within the family. It meant so much to all!

Every moment of the day was breathtaking, every single detail had been thought out.  I am so happy for Mackenzie and Seth and hope for a very long marriage of so much happiness. Thank you both for allowing Jeremy and myself to be a small part of your special day.

We adore you and we loved every minute of our day spent with you and your family.

XOXO, Tonya & Jeremy

Kalli + Kevin

This past weekend we met Kalli & Kevin in Cincinnati, OH at their wedding venue.  This location is truly a dream, I can’t wait for their special day!!

These two met while working at Disney World, Orlando. How cool is that? The cutest love story ever!!

Can you believe that it was 90% rain at this moment? I have to admit I was skeptical about driving three hours with such a bad forecast. We got to the location and the sun came out.  It was a gorgeous evening, what a blessing.

We may or may not have gotten kicked out of a wedding reception, haha!! Lets not mention what my husband did for a ring shot!! We will keep that between us, right Kalli & Kevin?  It really was a fun evening!!

Kalli & Kevin, It is such an honor to be able to photograph one of the most important days of your life!! We are very grateful for you all!! See you all in September!!

Remember all you brides, book your 2019 wedding by July 1, 2018 to secure 2018 pricing!!
