Basic Invite :: Custom Wedding Invitation Company

When it comes to planning your wedding - the details are truly what will bring your vision together for you. After shooting hundreds of weddings over the past 8 years - I definitely have a few favorite moments of the day... with the time for details shots being one. I love seeing what couples chose to bring their wedding day together, and I always love styling the invitations. Believe it or not, these items will get misplaced over the years, but my job is to capture everything and preserve that detail forever!

So when Basic Invite asked if I wanted to use their creative wedding invitations in a styled shoot - I couldn't wait!

I asked my friend Anna with Rose Moss Designs to help with some loose florals for styling, and I am loving how classic and sophisticated all the white anemones and peonies look (and you already know I love Ivy)! 

The Quarry Venue in Knoxville was the perfect location to match the style of this set. Although we didn't get to shoot at The Quarry for these photos, it was the perfect venue for the style! If you haven't found your wedding venue, definitely go check out this unique and beautiful location! 

As one of the very few companies that is truly custom, they allow you to change any element of the design to over 180 different colors! You can easily change even the individual floral elements, and customize it for your wedding season and wedding colors. And with overy 40 different colors of envelopes, you can make your invitations stand out before they're even opened.

Each of their wedding invitations is part of a set. You can create a custom collection of stationery matching your wedding vision in your marriage invites, corresponding insert cards, matching save-the-date cards, even a wedding website, ceremony programs, reception menu cards and table seating place cards! 

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed sample of your actual invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.

All of the envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed. Or choose this envelope option above - where everything is easily folded into the envelope itself! 

They also just rolled out a new clear collection, added rose gold to the available foil line, and just introduced foil place cards!

Now you can plan your entire wedding stationery to correspond; From the Save-the-Date cards, invitation suite, wedding website, guest book, programs, place cards and menu cards! 

This company and the options available are truly amazing! I hope you'll go check them out and order a sample of your wedding suite to see it in person! The quality and paper used are top of the line, I know you'll love them too! 

If you go visit their website now, they have a free printable wedding planner available! 
Have fun customizing! 

Peter + Tisha Nelson :: Intimate Wedding at The Lodge At Brother's Cove :: Sevierville, TN

Married on a perfect early spring day, with redbud trees starting to bloom, Peter & Tisha chose a mountainside venue to celebrate their marriage with their closest family and friends.

The views were breathtaking, and the ceremony and sentimental moments scattered throughout their day were absolutely darling. It was truly an honor to be the one to capture all these sweet moments.

Tisha's Mother and Father were able to watch out the window as Tisha & Peter saw each other for the first time on their wedding day!

Instead of the traditional "bouquet toss," Tisha wanted to present her bridal bouquet to her Mother. I'm positive anyone else watching was in tears as well. Such a touching way to honor her Mother! 

Tisha also chose to change into a Reception gown. They even did a second "First Look" with more portraits in the second gown after the ceremony!

Myly, Jana & the ladies over at 3M Creative Consultants helped the couple create their dream wedding from helping with all the planning, setting up for the day, coordinating/directing on the wedding day, and cleaning up afterward - They're truly amazing!

Gage & Savannah :: The Emporium Center :: Knoxville, TN :: Downtown, Urban Wedding :: Knoxville Engagement & Wedding Photographer

We couldn't ask for a more perfect day for a wedding! Savannah and Gage are probably one of the sweetest couples I've worked with, and I am so happy for them! It's absolutely clear that they want to honor God with their lives, and in their marriage! Savannah and Gage - It was an honor to capture your day for you!

Cayci & Michael :: Knoxville Engagement :: Spring Engagement Shoot :: Knoxville Botanical Gardens, The Historic Bleak House, and Downtown Knoxville

If I've never said it, (at least a hundred times) I love Engagement sessions! I love spring, and I love downtown Knoxville. So this session was a dream for me! 

We started out at The Knoxville Botanical Gardens, where their wedding will be this summer. Jessie at The Historic Bleak House was awesome enough to let me know that the purple Wisteria was blooming, and we could come there for a bit to incorporate some of their wedding color into the session! Then we headed Downtown to some new spots for me, which I couldn't be more excited about! 

This couple though! Throughout our time together, they laughed and talked and kissed the entire session. My cheeks literally hurt from smiling with them all morning! I love what we captured, and I cannot wait for your wedding this July!

Allison & Scott :: Downtown Knoxville & World's Fair Park :: Spring Engagement Shoot :: Knoxville Wedding Photographer

Need a reason to do an Engagement Session? THIS. We had an amazing evening together, just talking about wedding plans, walking around downtown Knoxville and getting to know each other... In the cold! brrr! It's been in the 70's for 2 weeks, and the day of their session, it drops down to the 40's! But we still had a great time, and this sweet couple is getting married in just 4 short months! 

The Engagement Session is a great chance to take your time and get some casual photos of the two of you enjoying just being together and being engaged! (It's also a great chance for your photographer to see how you interact, how you are in front of the camera, and give you a little coaching for the best photos on your wedding day!)

Allison & Scott, I cannot wait to photograph your wedding at Candoro Marble in July! If it's half as perfect as you two are together, it will be an amazing day! Not to mention, it's a gorgeous & unique Wedding Venue! I cannot wait!
