Geometric shapes, geodes + jewel tones are all the rage which is why I'm SO excited to share Elizabeth + Casey's wedding with you today! Devon of Meet Cute Event Planning helped design the couple's day to fit their modern aesthetic into a woodsy setting. And adding a little sparkle never hurt anyone! 🙂 I am in awe of Elizabeth + Casey's DIY geometric installations hanging from the ceiling and next to their sweetheart table! Can I just have some for my house? Their love showed through in every moment captured by photographer Chad Erickson. And their adventurous spirit was so beautifully displayed when they suggested to stand on a cliff for a wedding photo! Check out all their photos below as well as exerpts from Chad about what it felt like to photograph this beautiful day…

Tell us about Elizabeth + Casey!
Chad: The couple were best friends before they started dating. They met at a camp after a time apart and started up a romantic relationship. As camp was a big part of their story, they decided on an outdoor wedding at a state park they loved.
Tell us about their vision!
Chad: Devon of Meet Cute Event Planning described the wedding as a “glamorous wedding in the woods”. They wanted to keep it intimate with a heavy focus on the natural surroundings.
What was their theme and what inspired it?
Chad: Devon's idea was to use a variety of metals and geometric shapes and themes to bring a bit of sparkle to the golden Tennessee fall atmosphere. “A night to shine for this couple who brighten each other's lives and all those around them!”.
What details were used to create the theme?
Chad: Devon used geodes as her main inspiration for color and theme. The groom, Casey, spent weeks in advance building the wooden cube and geometric shapes that were used as table decorations as well as the giant hanging art installation that hung above the cake.
Can you share any special moments or highlights of their wedding day?
Chad: I knew they were an adventurous couple, but I didn't realize how much until they told me they wanted to walk out onto the ledge of a cliff and take pictures. It wasn't super high, but the small size of the ledge combined with the tremendous size of the dress and the fall leaves had me sweating a bit. But they made it with no problems, and we got some great portraits of them.
Did they have any special requests or unique challenges that you had to work together to overcome?
Chad: Everything went off without a hitch as far as I can remember. Mostly due to an extraordinary amount of planning and an overall laid back attitude.
