Best of 2019 Weddings + Engagements | Bristol Virginia/Tennessee Wedding Photographer | Kellie Holden Photography

You may be wondering… “Um, Kellie it’s the middle of March and you’re just now sharing your favorite Best of 2019 Weddings images?!” Well… Yes, yes I am! I say it is never too late to share some of best of the best wedding, engagement, and bridal photos!! I love spending time scrolling through my portfolio gallery and reflecting on a fantastic year! It’s an honor to capture wedding days and I never take it lightly!

2019 honestly felt like a blur to me… But in the best possible way! Once April hit, I didn’t have a single free weekend until mid-August! On top of that, Steven and I started the home buying process right after the bulk of wedding season was finishing up, and we bought our first home at the end of September. Not to even mention that the second round of busy season hit with fall AND we celebrated our one year anniversary in November!

This is a HUGE post!!! Make sure you grab a cup of coffee and enjoy my wedding favorites from 2019!

A bonus I wanted to share is a surprise PROPOSAL!! Steven and I got a huge privilege of traveling to Asheville, North Carolina for Herb to ask Teá to be his wife! He planned the ultimate surprise for her!! In order to keep it even more of a secret, he had us take the ring! And yes, I checked every two seconds that I still had it! He asked her at Battery Park Book Exchange in Downtown Asheville!
