Kourtney + John’s Neutral Rustic Outdoor Wedding – Amber Lowe Photo – Knoxville Wedding Photographer
Kourtney and John have a joy that’s simply contagious. Between Kourtney’s catch phrases and John’s constant grin, you just can’t look at them without smiling right back. Their love story sounds like it’s been lifted right out of a rom-com movie. They met in high school, became friends, and were even interested in each other at different times. But things never lined up for them and they lost touch. Then, years later, a friend noticed they were both single at the same time. They reconnected, and the timing was perfect. It wasn’t long before John gave Kourtney a one-of-a-kind ring, custom designed by his father.
The most beautiful part of John and Kourney’s joy is their generous spirits. They both wanted an intimate wedding, but they love their family and friends. So they split the difference. They opted for a small, intimate ceremony on John’s parents’ property, with a large, laugh-filled reception at the local country club.
There were so many sweet moments throughout the day. While she got dressed, Kourtney shared hugs, laughter, and snuggles with her mom, bridesmaids, even her niece and nephew. But the sweetest moment was when her daddy first saw her in her dress. She handed him a letter she’d written him, and they shared a special moment before it was time to walk down the aisle. And when she did, John was beside himself. He couldn’t hold back his tears of joy as his future bride walked toward him.
Of course, the decor was simple and sweet. Swank Floral created the loveliest white arrangements and bouquets with lots of greenery. Classic, neutral, rustic details filled the ceremony and reception venues. Their floral white layer cake was gorgeous, and a fun highlight of the reception was the Auntie Ann’s pretzel wall. Kourtney and John danced the night away with their loved ones, and at the end of the night they walked through a path of sparklers toward their joy-filled future together.
