Haynie Wedding / Martha Stewart Weddings

We had the honor of being asked to shoot the wedding of Liesl Menning and Kevin Haynie. Very thankful that the fabulous wedding planner Tara Guerard asked me to shoot the big event. She is very talented and very sweet. Tara has some amazing books out for all the brides to be and you can find them on Amazon here.

Liesl is the personal assistant of Martha Stewart and Kevin plays guitar for Josh Turner. They actually met while Josh and his band were performing on Martha’s TV show. The wedding was planned very quickly over the summer and Martha wanted to feature it in her wedding magazine, and also have it filmed for a one hour special on the Style Network. They had another photographer there for the magazine from San Francisco that you will probably see in the video.

Although I was not there to shoot for the magazine, Martha loved the photos so much that she fought to have some included in the feature. The story as it unfolded and relayed to me by Liesl was exciting and inspiring to say the least.

There is a sneak peek of the special on YouTube that Martha showed during one of her segments.

    I am searching for wedding venues in Middle Tennessee as I currently reside in Memphis. Was this event on private property or is it open to the public?

    All of your photographs are simply stunning! Flipping through each of the weddings in your portfolio makes me feel like I was actually there. You seem to capture the emotions of the day, not just details… Though the details in this wedding are amazing! To be so blessed to have THE Martha Stewart helping you out!

    Wow! What a beautiful wedding. The candied apples are such a cute touch and I LOVE the way they are used on the cake. It really ties the color theme of the wedding together. Also, the last shot of the barn is amazing. It makes me miss those Tennessee skies.
