On Location, Ocoee River, TN

Yesterday I photographed a session on the Ocoee River with Stephanie. We couldn't be very daring because we wanted to keep the dress clean, but hopefully I'll get a chance to do a couple session with them once they return from their tropical, destination wedding. She has an elegant one shoulder gown and a beautiful long veil. I love veils!

My friends Tiffany and Randy just celebrated their third anniversary. The couple had a destination wedding in Gatlinburg. The ceremony was held at one of the many little wedding chapels in the area, and the reception was at a mountain cabin that they had rented for the weekend. Before getting ready for the ceremony, Tiffany presented her children with wedding day gifts. Her son received a pocket watch, and the girls were given rings to commemorate the day. They're a great family, and I've been fortunate enough to keep in touch with them even though they live in Nashville. Last fall they all came to Knoxville so that I could do a few family photos and senior photos with Rachel.

Tiffany's son Austin was so proud to walk his mother down the aisle.

This particular venue ushered all of the guests into a closed room after the ceremony so that we couldn't disrupt their photos with the couple. I snapped one through the window anyway.

In 2005, I photographed the garden ceremony of Elizabeth and Robert at Riverwood Mansion in Nashville.

Riverwood has beautiful gardens and a few different locations for outdoor ceremonies. Elizabeth's father is deceased so her brother walked her down the aisle.

It is surprisingly common for someone to drop one of the rings during the ceremony. Robert dropped Elizabeth's ring, but then she mistakenly put his ring on the wrong hand.

I'm not a big fan of long lists of formal group photos, but I usually do a photo of the couple with their immediate families and one with their extended families. The extended family photo doesn't include every possible relative though. It includes parents, grandparents, siblings, and the siblings' spouses and children. Elizabeth has a lot of siblings which made for a large group!

Last year I photographed the wedding of Sandra and Ryan at St Mary's Catholic Church in Oak Ridge. After the ceremony and formal group photos, I spent some time at the church with the couple alone and then drove to the reception at Rothchild Catering and Conference Center in Knoxville where the guests enjoyed a live band and sit-down dinner.

Sandra's mother Sharon sewed this beautiful gown for her daughter's wedding!
