While a rainy forecast might have stressed some brides and grooms, Alexis and Chase didn’t seem to mind the downpour on their Castleton Farms wedding. Instead, the couple laughed, kissed, and danced through their day, sometimes beneath a pair of clear umbrellas, but often just embracing the droplets as they fell. Regardless of the storm, an emotional vow exchange ensured that there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience of Alexis and Chase’s outdoor ceremony. The Image Is Found captured the entire day, from the couple’s first look under the trees to the simply beautiful wedding decor in neutral hues.
Alexis and Chase
Castleton Farms, Loudon, Tennessee
The first look was the most incredible part of our day. I will never forget walking towards Chase and all the emotions running through my mind. It was so peaceful and quiet and we were outside in the forest and it was just unforgettable. I loved our embrace after he turned around and there is just nothing like seeing your groom on your wedding day without the pressures of everyone else watching you. We were able to spend an hour together before the ceremony and just soak in what the day meant to us and get the nerves out. Also, we couldn’t forget the downpour during our ceremony right after my dad handed me off to Chase. That was definitely a memorable moment and something we laugh about all the time now.
I really wanted the wedding to be simple, but unique to Chase and I. We both grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee and we both love the outdoors so we really wanted everything to be outside with a beautiful view. I’m obsessed with greenery and eucalyptus so I feel like I used that in every aspect of the wedding.
The day went by so fast! I learned after the wedding that many of the details I spent so much time planning before the big day ended up not even being a big deal. We all had to take cover in a pavilion and everything that was planned outside for the reception was soaked so we couldn’t use it. The best advice that I could give is that at the end of the day all that matters is celebrating the love that you share, the love of Christ, and having all your friends and family together in one place so take in those moments during the wedding day because that is what matters!
