Waterstone Venue Bridal Portraits | Sarah Jessee + River


I joked over on the gram that I now require dogs at all bridal portrait sessions. It was a joke but if every bride from now on brought a dog with her, I would certainly not be mad about it! River - despite still being a puppy - was so well behaved during all the photo shenanigans. Just look at that sweet face!!

This particular afternoon was extremely warm, sunny, and bright at the beautiful Waterstone Venue in Johnson City, Tennessee. If you have never been to the Waterstone it is absolutely a must see venue and truly a gem in the Tri-Cities.

Sarah and her husband Cody actually eloped near the beginning of 2020 after Covid canceled bigger wedding day plans however that didn't stop the couple from having a beautiful celebration at the Waterstone later in 2020. Don't worry - images from that day coming to the blog soon!

Sarah's incredible Stella York wedding gown was from Annie's Room - a local bridal boutique located in Kingsport, Tennessee.

I can't wait to share the images from Sarah and Cody's wedding celebration with you! In the meantime, head on over to our Instagram to and scroll on back to see photos from their snowy, cold, BEAUTIFUL mountaintop elopement!
