Manker Patten Tennessee real wedding.
Stefanie and Jay are an adventurous and sweet couple who chose to have a wedding celebration down by the river in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Their nuptials were certainly filled with endearing sentiments and traditional flavor, but with the added burning and bold colors of a Tennessee October.
The invitation suite Stefanie and Jay chose really gave guests an inviting glimpse into their wedding day. It featured a natural concept fitting for an outdoor ceremony.
Stefanie embraced color on her wedding day. For her walk down the aisle, she chose a pair of studded emerald green shoes, which complemented her bouquet filled with nature’s heartiest of blooms, like cream roses, green pom flowers and crespedia.
Stefanie chose a chic ivory sweetheart gown with beading at the neckline and ruching throughout the bodice. Her hair was styled to the side and she accessorized with a gorgeous emerald necklace. She snuck up to Jay for a first look moment.
Jay chose to wear a gorgeous black tuxedo for his wedding day. A black bowtie with a black vest, white shirt and white pocket square made the look complete.
With a tender smile on his face, he embraced his bride-to-be in both the gardens of the venue and on a charming trolley car.
Emerald was a central element to the look of the bridal party, as well. Stefanie’s bridesmaids wore infinity wrap dresses in emerald green, so they could choose the style that fit them best. She also gifted each lady with a personalized emerald and gold bracelet.
As guests were seated, the sun began to set, creating the most epic of backdrops for the ceremony. Stefanie and Jay exchanged vows in front of a wrought iron arbor dressed with flowers. The entire moment played out right in front of the water with gorgeous fall foliage in the distance.
Before the sun set, the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. took a few more affectionate photos.
As the night set in, the party was just beginning.
At the reception, guests were greeted with framed photos of the couple. Everyone enjoyed a buffet dinner and a delectable assortment of desserts.
The reception was also decked out in the regal emerald color, splashing both the table sashes and runners. The romance was kicked up a notch with floating candles.
The couple dined and danced and really enjoyed the music and the experience. Jay even played the bass and serenaded his bride the whole night through.
Their guests made sure to send them off with a rousing celebratory farewell of bubble blowing and cheers as Stefanie and Jay made their way to the limousine.
This fall wedding encompassed more than just a seasonal theme.
