I was so inspired by Heidi and Dave’s attitude when their wedding day arrived with constant rain. I can’t imagine all the envisioning and planning of the wedding for that previous year and then it be ambushed with such wet weather. However, they were in such great spirits! I was proud of them for keeping the main goal in mind amidst the other potentially disappointing factors. Without a doubt, rainy wedding days also provide unique moments for photography and they weren’t shy about braving the weather for some of them.

The ceremony was moved inside but it certainly did not hinder the beauty of it. Firefly Events really showed off their strengths by helping the many behind the scene changes in this day go smoothly.

Heidi and Dave’s first date included a trip to Ultimate Ice Cream. So as a signature item in their wedding they had them prepare an ice cream bar along with the cake. Yum!

Mattie and Justin were married at one of my favorite places in the world… Cataloochee Valley! Cataloochee is an old settlement from the late 1800s. It is now a National Park here in the Smokey Mountains complete with mountain views, old homesteads, barns, a church, a school house, and even elk!

Mattie and Justin were high school sweethearts and a lot of fun to be around on their big day! Happy one year anniversary to these two wonderful people!

Happy one year anniversary to this beautiful amazing couple! Yes, I know I am a bit late in blogging their wedding but all I can say is first trimester happened and blogging fell by the wayside as I was super sick during that time. But I couldn’t let this wedding go “un-blogged!”

I met Miranda as I was shopping one day. She worked as a store manager and we hit it off. I happened to notice her ring and since I love all things pertaining to weddings I asked her about her big day. Little did I know she would contact me years later and ask Michael and I to photograph her big day!

As we got to know Miranda and Ryan we knew we would be kindred spirits. We know a lot of the same people and she even invited me to her bachelorette party!

Miranda and Ryan were married at the Crest Center and Pavillion on a BEAUTIFUL Autumn day. We adored their sunny wedding and their warm spirits.
