I discovered the artistry of photographer Tec Petaja years ago, and this wedding he photographed at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee brings to mind simplicity, nostalgia farmhouse wonder, and a pared-down slow living vibe.
Ever visited Blackberry Farm? Here’s the scoop:
“In 1939, Mrs. Florida Lasier of Chicago snagged her silk stockings on a wild blackberry bramble while exploring the idyllic Smoky Mountain foothills, and the name Blackberry Farm was born. Forty years later, the Beall family invested their hearts and souls in the same romantic site that has become their family home and lifelong passion. Today, one of America’s most celebrated intimate luxury hotels beckons discerning guests who aspire to escape modern-day frenzy and slip into a Blackberry state of mind. Situated on a pastoral 4,200-acre estate in the Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry will show you the many reasons why it is one of the top rated properties in the world.”
Let’s tour a gorgeous farmhouse style wedding.
