Intimate Candlelight Ridge Wedding in Georgia | Haley & Travis | Taylor English Photography

When I first toured Candlelight Ridge, it was quickly apparent it was unlike any other wedding venue here in Chattanooga, TN. Which meant that any wedding there would be unlike any wedding I’d photographed before here in the south. As an advocate of the nontraditional and the little bit weird and unique, I couldn’t wait to capture that wedding. Fortunately, I wouldn’t have to wait long.

Enter stage left: Haley and Travis: fellow creatives, lovers of the outdoors and of all things intimate, romantic, and doin’ it for the feels. Yep, the precise couple to shake it all up!

We could not have gotten luckier. It was the kind of spring day where the sun warms your skin, but you have to stay close and cozy when the light fades and the wind picks up. The quaint English-style cottage made for the most lovely of wedding suites. Haley could not have looked more angelic than if she had fallen to earth that same day. And next to Travis, these two looked as though they had just stepped out of a magazine.

There was no shortage of happy tears - from the first look, to the vows, to the speeches. They danced their first dance as they receded back down the aisle - nontraditional and a little bit weird and unique, definitely one of my favorite moments of the day. As the creators of the Flikr Fireplaces (go check these out! You’ll want one!), each table beneath the boho rustic tent was lined with the personal fireplaces so each guest could warm their hands and toast their marshmallows. They danced and lip-synced the night away beneath the stars, surrounded by their most loved ones, what I would call - The Perfect Wedding Day.
