01 Jul Jessica + Jethro | The Venue at Birchwood | Spring Hill, TN
The Venue at Birchwood is a new wedding venue in Spring Hill, TN and Jessica and Jethro’s wedding was our first time getting to visit it! I just love how all of the details paired perfectly with the natural decor making it all so much fun to photograph. This is definitely some great wedding inspiration for anyone planning a wedding in Tennessee! The Venue at Birchwood is unique in that it is really two venues in one. The chapel is connected by a breezeway to the large barn style reception space. This makes it really convenient for guests and the space between the two is perfect for cocktail hour!
Jessica and Jethro are both very thoughtful people and you could definitely tell in how they planned out the day. Many of their guests are deaf so they had a sign language interpreter for their ceremony so everyone would be included. If you don’t know the sign for “love” you will by the end of these photographs <3
The couple chose to read their personalized vows privately to each other in the chapel before all of the guests arrived. This created such a beautiful moment to photograph and a really special and intimate time for the couple. The fact that they had decided to do a first look and take photos before the ceremony also helped us out with the weather! We were able to take photos inside and run out during breaks in the rain. The storm clouds created some really dramatic photographs. I always tell couples not to worry about the weather since it is something you can’t control. I spend a lot of my time worrying about it for them and obsessively checking radar and weather apps. The best advice I can give is to have a great venue with indoor options and be flexible on your day. Jessica and Jethro were and it resulted in some really great photographs.
At the end of the night Jessica and Jethro shared a private last dance while their guests lined up for the sparkler exit. This was the perfect way to cap off a wonderful day. Enjoy these beautiful moments from their wedding day and join us in wishing them a big congratulations!
