Cherokee Creek Farm | Jordan & Zak's Winter Barn Wedding

Jordan and Zak's wedding took place at Cherokee Creek Farm in Jonesborough, TN on November 18, 2023. Jordan had hoped for a snowy winter feel for her wedding day, but in Tennessee the weather is usually the opposite of what you expect it to be. It was a fairly mild winter day with the wind being the biggest chill factor.

Their day started off very relaxed with just a few close friends and family getting ready in the historic farmhouse. I gathered their details for photos. One of my favorite details was a gift to Jordan from Zak. He had a shoe box with a note saying "You danced away with my heart. Thought these would make dancing tonight a little more comfy! Don't worry, we'll be matching!" Inside of the shoebox were brand new Nike Dunks in the color of their wedding colors, "varsity green." It was the perfect gift at the perfect moment.

We took bridal portraits, portraits with the bridesmaid and some family portraits outside. Jordan wanted a first look with her dad. That was a tear jerker! There is nothing like a father seeing his little girl all dressed up on her wedding day. We hide the bride back in the house and started the grooms photos. Their wedding was small and intimate so we were able to get a lot of photos out of the way before the ceremony.

Then, just like that, it was time for Jordan to walk down the aisle. Both of their reactions were precious. You could tell they were both so excited to finally see each other.

We took some final family photos with the bride and groom both, then headed to the courtyard for their couple photos. One of my favorite things to do with this venue is incorporate all of the beautiful features into their photos, especially the aspects they love most about the venue. One of the most popular things is the historic farmhouse. It really does make the perfect back drop. We had a gorgeous sunset and these two were absolutely killing it! I put them both under that veil and they knew exactly what to do....and so did the sun. It was so awesome. I was definitely squealing with excitement! We then jumped on the 4x4 with the venue owner and took a ride into the cow pasture....ok, I know what you are thinking...a cow pasture in a wedding dress? Yes, because the views are amazing. We even had an audience.

Another super sweet detail Jordan and Zak incorporated into their wedding was his papaw's vintage purple Ford F-100. They would late drive off in it for their exit, but we made sure to get some photos with it beforehand.

They danced the night away, their first dance being an Elvis classic. "Love me tender, love me sweet, never let me go." and sped off ready to start their new adventure - hand in hand.
