Karli and Blayne tied the knot at Lenoir City, Tennessee at the WindRiver Golf Club. Since their wedding was on May 1 and outside, they wanted to go with a light color scheme and ultimately decided on light purples, pinks and grays for their color palette.

Q: Why did you choose this place to get married?
“When we visited WindRiver for the first time, we fell in love with how gorgeous it was. Our ceremony was on a lawn overlooking Tellico Lake and our reception was a few steps away on a brick patio under a tent in front of a beautiful lakeside restaurant.”
Q: What was the most memorable part of your big day?
“It’s so hard to pick just one thing! The whole day was amazing. Things weren’t perfect by any means but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Some of my favorite memories from the day were my dad’s surprise father-daughter dance idea, then watching my grandparents dance to their wedding song that they danced to 64 years ago and then having them give my new husband and I marriage advice in front of all our guests.”
Q: Why did you choose Azazie for your bridesmaids dresses?
“I decided to go with Azazie for our bridesmaids because there is a wide variety of styles and colors. I picked the color and length of the dresses but let my girls pick what style they wanted because I wanted them to love their dress, feel comfortable in it and pick one they could afford! The dresses at Azazie are affordable, yet high quality.”
Q: Any tips for those getting married soon?
“My advice would be to not stress over the small details. Your big day will go by so fast that you won’t even notice those small details. The day is about you and your significant other’s love for each other. Celebrate, don’t stress!”
Q: Did you enjoy planning your wedding?
At times I enjoyed the wedding planning but most of the time I did not. I had never really thought about my wedding before we had gotten engaged. While planning a wedding there are a lot of decisions to be made that at the time seem like a big deal but really aren’t. Plus my indecisiveness didn’t help the planning process!
