The Bright Place
Yesterday I posted on
James' bday bash and the fun.
I hinted about James and Julies
amazing homestead and how as
a photographer I was jealous...this
place is a photographers dream!
About 4 years ago James and Julie
started Tennessee Tiny Weddings.
These tiny weddings usually range
from 2 (the couple) to maybe 25 or 30.
James and Julie have made the most
adorable place to these tiny
weddings. Both can also
perform these weddings.
My eyes went straight to this site.
one of my best friends.
On top of the cute platform for
weddings there are some of
the neatest items just sitting around,
fantastic backdrops that a photographer
It seems that every corner and bend
in the property are decorated in
the cutest of ways.
Lights hanging on trees.
Great places to stop and rest while
you enjoy the views.
I can see a senior in a prom dress
sitting here to have her pic made.
Or a new bride with hubby standing
Check out this cute spot, maybe
a couple sitting here with a glass
of wine while they talk about the
I am a sucker for barns, wood structures and
old rustic buildings.
Julies potting shed just called me right
over so I could look around through
Doesn't Julie have this area fixed
up in such an adorable way?
Another great item for photos.
This would also be a great
A child sitting down next to
this area would make a great
Oh this....this is amazing.
Such hidden joys everywhere you look.
And check out this swing!
Propped here and there you can see
just the smallest, simplest and
Chandeliers in the trees.
There were candles in this that were
lit later in the evening.
Have a seat, enjoy an evening
out with the company of the one
Check out the fire pit
and the stumps to sit on as
you enjoy a cool evening
out with friends.
But the trucks and tractors are
what I think is the most fun.
This one being my fave!
This is also one of the first things
I noticed as I parked,
mailbox in the center of a field
with a pathway.
Julie was telling me that one side
of the mailbox said Lovers Lane and
the other side said North Pole.
Even weeds which I love
for back drops.
Another great photo op.
Coming back from Julies potting shed
I glanced to my left and saw this site.
The bubbling water just
makes a great shot.
These are some of the ladies at
James' bday bash.
Remember the interesting story about
me realizing I knew Julie from years....years...
yep years ago? Well hear is another interesting
You see the woman in the very back, behind the
lady in the yellow top?
She got married by Julie at the TN Tiny
Weddings in Nov. right after my
daughter got married by Julie...
Didn't my daughter just get married
Yep she did but only after she was
married in Nov.
The week after the "wedding" Amber
and I went to the Social Security
office for her to have her name changed.
The guy behind the glass asked to see
the license, Amber produced this from her
purse already in a frame.
Now, I might miss somethings but
others I don't.
I know Amber, there was NO WAY
that she would have that framed in
a week. So I reached for it only to have
her pull it away. HAHA
I said nothing, just went home
and thought it through.
A few days later I asked her,
" Amber so when are you going to tell
me when you actually got married"?
She was shocked and wanted to know
what I was talking about.
I just proceeded to tell her that I
was not stupid and I figured it out.
Then she told me they decided to
get married but then still go through
with the wedding.
She thought it was funny to then tell
me who married them!
You see, James being a postman he
knows people and it just so happens
that the vet where Amber works
is on his route. That is how Amber knew
about Tennessee Tiny Weddings!
Seems what goes around comes
Now check out this cool shot of
all of us sassy ladies!
Hands on hip and reflection
in the water.
Now you see why I call this place
a photographers dream!
Which reminds me, Julie is passing
my name on to couples for
their photographer during their
weddings at The Bright Place
and TN Tiny Weddings.
Here are a few pics that
I made in B&W~
I love B&W photos.
Hoping you enjoyed this post.
