Anna & Zack met in California’s Napa Valley over a bottle of wine. After dating for a few years they took a weekend getaway in Chattanooga, they fell in love with this antiquated city and decided to tie the knot there.
The festivities started perched atop a mountain with a rehearsal dinner at a venue called Grandview Lookout Mountain, which had the most amazing views. After some great speeches, I already knew how much love and laughter this crowd would be sharing the next day.
The couple along with the wedding planner (Shaun Cox, of Cue the Champagne) was all about the details. There was everything from custom coloring books for the kids to t-shirts and socks for the bridal party… and what a bridal party it was. This wedding set the record for the largest bridal party I have ever photographed! At a point, I simply lost count but I believe the final number was 35. The bride and bridesmaids got ready at a house that was pretty much straight out of a Pinterest board and the groomsmen had a creative artsy loft. I arranged the dresses and shoes to be photographed and got all the right reactions. From the mother’s emotional tears at seeing her daughter getting ready for her big day to all the friends excitement.
EXCEPT WHERE DO YOU TAKE 37 PEOPLE FOR PHOTOS? Why the streets of course! It sure was fun stopping traffic on Main Street in Tennessee, bet they never expected that!
The band was outstanding along with a cameo by the brother of the groom who stole the show with his performance. It was a real tearjerker that everyone in the crowd felt, including myself!
The party is full on now with everyone feeling great! Then some delicious burgers in customized boxes gifted by the MAG (Most Attractive Groomsmen), Aashish Varma. As everyone expected a great cake to be next they were surprised to find that along with the cake there was BACON!!!!! YES BACON FOR DESERT!!! ERMERGED!!!
