I think every last one of my peers in the photography field have been so sick and tired of rain this season. It seems like every weekend, there’s rain! Well, these two found the solution – just get married on a Thursday and you’ll have beautiful weather! It was blistering hot in Kingsport on their big day and I’d just like to go ahead and say in advance to all of my future brides THANK YOU for putting up with me looking a hot mess during your summer wedding. It might not seem like it, but photography is hard work especially when you are holding your breath, bent over some important details trying to get a focal point sharp in 90+ degree weather.
When Sarah’s mom contacted me earlier this year about shooting their wedding, I knew it was going to be a special one, but I didn’t know how special. The love that Sarah and Cole share, not only for each other, but for their faith, is so evident in everything that anyone who looks at their photos can tell that every detail was planned with this very love in mind. These two met in Sarah’s mom’s classroom at the local high school while she was helping him write a sermon. Sarah told me that Cole had a reputation of someone who was very faithful and that was something that stood out to her.
Their wedding was beautiful! Watching these two say their vows and proclaim their love for each other in front of their friends, family and God was something truly special. Their ceremony was perfectly timed for some gorgeous sunset photos on top of the parking garage in Kingsport and then later we headed to the Social Event Facility for their reception, which was a true party complete with not one, but three special dances, a delicious dinner and cake from Petite Sweets, and great music to dance along to!
Sarah and Cole, I wish you a world of happiness in your marriage! Your wedding has been one of my favorites yet!
