Jill and Ryan are celebrating their second anniversary today. After a ceremony at Springview Baptist Church in Maryville, the couple had a reception at Rarity Bay Country Club in Vonore.

Tip: If you are planning a bubble or night exit then you need to walk slowly and even take a moment during the exit to just stop and kiss or look at each other. If you run through the crowd then I will only have time to snap off 3 or 4 photos at most. Once you throw out any blinks or blurs, you may be left with one good photo of the exit. It's a fun moment so slow down and enjoy it like these two did.

Their son thought the cake smashing was hilarious, and he loved the balloons floating over the dance floor.

The Kahns just celebrated their first anniversary. Surrounded by friends and family, Barbara and Gary were married last year in the studio at Butterfly Gap Retreat. Here are a few pages from their album.

My husband Marcus and Jim were coworkers. When he heard that Jim and his fiancé Colleen were looking for a wedding venue in Maryville, Marcus recommended that they look at Butterfly Gap Retreat. They did and apparently loved it as much as we do since they were married on the BGR peninsula last Sunday. They also used All Occasion Catering and Mulberries Flowers, two excellent vendors.

It was a beautiful day! I thought this was a really great idea, especially for an outdoor wedding... The couple had the ceremony programs hanging in little folders on the end of each aisle.

It was very sunny for their afternoon ceremony so we did a few photos and then later, once the sun was lower, did a few more outside the reception.

James and Colleen had a special choreographed waltz prepared for their first dance. It was really beautiful.

I was at Butterfly Gap yesterday for a wedding, and the owner reminded me that I was at the retreat for a wedding this same weekend last year. The weather was just as warm and beautiful last year for Kelley and Austin's outdoor ceremony as it was yesterday.

I know it can be uncomfortable to dance in front of everyone, but try not to talk too much during your first dances. Especially with couples turning, it can be impossible to catch a decent photo without someone having their mouth open talking. This photo of Kelley with her dad is a perfect example of the sweet moments you can have if you just relax and enjoy the dance.

The same little girl who decided to join Kelley and Austin on the dance floor later decided that she should be the DJ.

Mandy and Johnathan are celebrating their first anniversary this week. Happy Anniversary, guys! I posted some album spreads from their wedding a few months ago, and I'm just going to post the rest of them here. If you want to see the actual book you can visit Butterfly Gap or set up a meeting with me. Butterfly Gap is a peaceful retreat in Maryville and one of my favorite wedding venues.

After helping with so many weddings at Butterfly Gap, Mandy knew exactly what she wanted for her own wedding. It was a beautiful day with great vendors all around.
