If you’re really lucky you know people like Troy and Elaura. And if you’re super lucky you were at Allenbrooke Farms for their June wedding! The day was incredible! Not a cloud in the sky and the legendary southern humidity failed to make itself known for the entire day. Jamie started the day in the new venue with Elaura and her bridal party and I spent the early day with Troy and 15 of his groomsmen!! Sadly the 16th groomsman, Bono, was unable to attend the ceremony. Regrettably, Bonnaroo was unwilling to reschedule U2’s headlining show.
The ceremony itself began promptly at 5:00 on the Certified Organic Allenbrooke Family Farm and wedding venue. Elaura’s Scottish heritage was on full display during the wedding! The gorgeous bride was preceded down the aisle by a terrifically kilted bagpipesman. Then she walked down the aisle with her father who was also rocking a traditional kilt that Sir William Wallace himself would have envied! After the ceremony we raced around the gorgeous Tennessee countryside with Troy and Elaura, capturing some wonderful little moments and creating images we’re super proud of and can’t wait for you to peruse. We were even able to have the newly weds sneak off during the reception for a few quick minutes as the sun was setting. The light was incredible and the densely covered rolling hills served as the quintessential Tennessee backdrop. We felt so lucky to be photographing these incredible moments at such a beautiful location!
We just want to thank Troy and Elaura for allowing us to be a part of their big day. If you ever get a chance to meet these two you will not soon forget it! We’ve been lucky enough to count Troy as a close friend for a number of years. He is charming and hilarious in quantities that seem unfair, a super talented musician, loves all the fried chicken the South has to offer, and has a really kind heart. In that order 😉
Elaura is everything that comes to mind when someone says Southern Belle. Super sweet, warm and inviting, terrific conversationalist and lover of all things feline. We’re so happy these two finally found each other, seeing how happy they make each other absolutely makes our day. All the best to Troy and Elaura as they start on this great new adventure together!
