The series of epic, adventurous, joyful love stories we got to document this summer pretty much makes me want to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming! Seriously, so much awesome. We are SO excited to share more today from Denise and Korry’s Fall Creek Falls adventure elopement. When I first talked with Denise, she told me about how they had been planning a big wedding, but as they got into it, they knew deep down that what would be the most them was a calm and private day in the peace of nature, with just a few people. I love so much that they listened to that tug on their heart and made it happen!
They traveled from their home in NYC down to an amazing AirBnB in Cookeville, where they got ready before we all headed out to Fall Creek Falls! They were joined by Denise’s dad, sister, brother in law (who performed the ceremony!), and nephew. Chris and I had gone out to Fall Creek Falls a few months earlier and scouted a few general areas that met their wish list (trees, hills, and water!), but we were mostly all in for the adventure together! We had been concerned about the potential for August heat, but the day was unseasonably cool and rainy, which made it even more beautiful as the clouds and mist came through the Tennessee hills. They chose the overlook for the main falls for their ceremony, which was so perfectly sweet, emotional, and true to them. They were also joined by a small crowd of onlookers who cheered as they were pronounced husband and wife! After the ceremony, we adventured around and explored. These two are so full of joy, and it was so inspiring to watch them take in the views and soak in being newly married!
On to some of our favorites of the day!
Checking out the falls and picking their ceremony spot!
I just adore this candid moment of Denise taking in the view! <3
The smoky clouds through the trees is just such an iconic Tennessee thing to me. So beautiful.
Congratulations, Denise and Korry! We are so happy for you both, and it was such a joy to be on this adventure with you and document all these amazing moments. You both are so sweet, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness and adventure ahead!
Thank you all for stopping by the blog! If you’re a couple looking for an adventure, natural photos that look like you, we’d love to chat more with you!
