Congratulations to Whitney and William!!!
This was one gorgeous event!
The ladies got ready at The Regency Salon in the Marriott Hotel
The guys were ready a bit early that day - believe it or not! So Lauren ran the town with them to get some fun shots.
Meanwhile ... the girls were still getting ready!
But once they were ready they were looking gorgeous and ready to hit the town too.
We passed through the Old City on the way to the church and couldn't resist.
These lovely dresses are from White Lace and Promises
Also, Whitney and most of the girls' make-up was done by the fantastic Claire Turner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I told the Whitney and the girls that we might end up stopping traffic ... and we did just that! A fire truck to be exact!
Thanks fire-men! You are awesome!
The stunning flowers were done by Leonard with Always in Bloom
William was the one who wanted to wait and see Whitney for the first time at the ceremony. I love this moment.
This next gorgeous shot was taken by my new intern Sara. (Yes I have a Sarah and a Sara - don't confuse the two!)
Whitney and William's ceremony was held at Washington Pike Methodist Church.
Everyone was in a hurry to get to the gorgeous reception which was held at The Foundry.
So how fast can I take family and bridal party portraits?
Real fast, people.
The reception table linens were done by my friends at The White Table. Love those ladies!
Okay, so lets talk about The Foundry http://www.foundonfair.com/
That place is gorgeous.
The reception was DJ'd by the super fun Jim of Ogle Entertainment
Not only did Jim provide awesome music for a fun party atmosphere but he also did the reception lighting. This is something that many people may not consider for their wedding and I am here to say consider it!!! Good lighting makes all the difference in the world when it comes to great photos. I think Jim's lighting makes the photos just come right to life.
Another unexpected and super fun piece of Whitney and William's reception was the photo booth done by
Photo Booth of Knoxville
And because I think you guys need a formal introduction to my second shooters ... here are some photo booth portraits of me and Lauren:
(please forgive the quality, they were scanned)
And me and Sara (well Lauren is actually in those too but she kinda got shoved out - sorry Lauren!).
Here is just a really fun sequence of shots showcasing how Lauren and Sara and I work so great together. You can tell whose shots are who's by their name on the logo.
