Rustic Elegance = Kaitlin+Jared

Photos by Justin Wright Photography

Kaitlin Carnes and Jared Carlson met in sixth grade, started dating as high school sophomores and have been together ever since.  A love like this is pure – a natural attraction that blesses a rare few early in life.  It is a gift of an inevitable bond between two people.

When our design team met with Kaitlin and Jared to begin planning their August 7 wedding, their definition for the day was specific: laid back atmosphere, rustic, natural design and surroundings, elegant yet simple. Perfect! We loved helping create this celebration!

Justin Wright Photography shot some amazing photos of Kaitlin and Jared in luscious afternoon light at Cedarwood. We think their  love lightshines right through, too. We are sooooo enthusiastic about Justin’s images of Kaitlin and Jared, we will share three posts on this wedding.  Here’s part one. Let us know what you think!


Justin and his guys look dapper in their suits from Joseph A. Banks – we love the fresh summer fashion. Kaitlin is stunning in her Marisa Bridal gown, from Monica’s Bridal in Chattanooga.  Her hair and make-up is by Rhea Reeves of Ecco Salon in Franklin.  The look:  understated, elegant, natural beauty, PERFECTION!
