The Side Porch


The Side Porch in Gray, Tennessee is one of our favorite eastern TN wedding venues. It's seriously just a little piece of paradise tucked just a few minutes from the main highway. We had our first opportunity to shoot their last October when we photographed Jade and Titus tie the knot. When I first met Jade, we had found one another through Instagram and connected for a couples session. The two of them had only been together for a month or so and I knew immediately they were meant to last. Sparks flew in front of my camera and I was so happy to have been apart of their journey from the start. Shortly after, I had the pleasure of shooting their surprise proposal (in the pouring rain, I might add). From there, nothing but love and happiness- and lots of wedding planning.


Tennessee Wedding Venue


The Side Porch is an East Tennessee wedding venue located just a few extra minutes past Johnson City. It's a boho wedding venue that sits right by the creek, making it the perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony.

When I talked to Jade about her wedding planning, she said nearly everything. they had gotten was thrifted. She had planned and searched for months for all the right items to make a perfect Boho budget wedding. And it was absolutely stunning! One of our favorite parts of the night was the vintage carpet lined dance floor. It felt like something out of a magazine (scroll down to see it for yourself!). As they danced underneath the string lights, the sun set behind them and it was one of the most magical scene we've ever photographed. The Side Porch is truly such flexible venue and we loved working with them so very much. We can't wait to be back soon!
