Revolution Springs is a vineyard in the beginning stages located in Thompsons Station, Tennessee. The planting of the vineyard began in 2013, but the property and old homestead have been around a lot longer. The original homestead (still standing) was built in 1792. Joel's grandparents bought the homestead in 1952 and farmed it. Joel's dad, Joe, lived there and moved back after graduating college to continue farming the property. Joel's parents built their home on the property in 1982. Joel told Katherine about the vineyard before their first date and actually took her to it on their first date. In the back of Katherine's mind, she thought about marrying Joel on the property one day. Little did Katherine know that Joel was thinking the same thing! They were both thinking this on their FIRST DATE! Talk about meant to be.

There are many cabins on mountain tops in Tennessee, but I've never seen one quite as remote and beautiful as the setting for this wedding. The route to get there was an adventure. I got off the interstate onto a little two lane road. Then, I got off a little two lane road and merged onto what looked like a wide logging trail. Then, I turned onto what looked like "The Oregon Trail". The elevation kept going up and the road kept getting narrower. Lindsey told me the property overlooks four counties. The view was breathtaking! A storm was predicted to blow in about an hour before their 6 p.m. ceremony, but we were all praying it wouldn't. Unfortunately, the thunderstorm arrived and there was no sign of it letting up until late into the night. What happened next was beautiful! Family and friends recreated Lindsey's dream wedding under the cabin wrap-around-porch. Candles were lit to create a beautiful ambiance. Guests lined the sides of the porch to create an aisle for Lindsey to walk up and meet her prince, James. I think the wedding was more special on that wrap-around-porch with the rain beating down on the tin roof because so many people pulled together to make it work.
The ceremony was performed by her father and followed by their first dance. Their friend and hit songwriter, Jason Matthews, played and sang his hit song (recorded by Billy Currington) called "Must Be Doing Something Right". The cabin was little, but the love was over flowing.
The first time I sat down with Ken + Hope was over sushi at a local Asian restaurant. When I meet with bride and grooms to be, I like to sit back and watch their chemistry. I could see so much love for one another as they decided what to order together. I listened to their story, what they envisioned for their wedding, the love their families have for them, and I knew I couldn't wait to capture their big day!There was rain predicted, but only a handful of drops fell.... praise the Lord! The weather was a true blessing, as they married under gorgeous mature trees at Rippavilla Plantation in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Hope's son, Brooks, walked her down the aisle and gave the 'thumbs up' approval of his Mother saying "I Do" to Ken.
