Urban Downtown Knoxville Wedding


Carly and Chase's wedding was super special for us for a few reasons:

1. These two booked us SO LONG ago. Like seriously, they were one of the first couples to ever book us for a wedding. They rescheduled their wedding from last fall to February and we were just so excited for them to FINALLY get married!

2. This was our very first wedding shot at The Standard and I am 100% biased when I say it is my favorite venue in Knoxville because that is where Chris and I got married ourselves back in October 2019! It was such a sweet day being able to photograph a wedding at this venue and reminisce in our heads about our own wedding day.

3. Carly & Chase are currently living in Indy, but had their wedding in Knoxville, where all their family and friends came together to celebrate them. I am a sucker for weddings with a lot of out of town guests because it makes the day feel that much more meaningful!


Their wedding day was pretty rainy all day. Luckily The Standard has an AMAZING rain backup plan for all pictures. There are so many amazing spots in the venue that are filled with character and charm. The rain really gave us the opportunity to showcase how truly beautiful the venue is! And even though it was drizzling pretty consistently, not one time did Carly or Chase show disappointment. They were both just so excited to marry each other that nothing could bring them down! We definitely did make sure to grab some clear umbrellas and take a few rainy just married portraits after the ceremony, which I'M OBSESSED WITH!!


And lastly, the reception that these two had is 1000% my kind of reception. I don't think anyone left the dance floor the whole night! Carly was a dancer her whole life so not only was the dance floor packed, but it was packed with GOOD dance moves. The day ended with a silver streamer exit (which was so fun) out the front of The Standard. What an amazing day and we couldn't be happier for Mr. and Mrs. Messersmith! Congratulations to the beautiful bride and groom and please enjoy a look into their perfect day!
