Oops. It looks like I’ve been missing from the blog for a while. I definitely need to do better, and a wedding post seems like a great way to start. Claire and Adam were married this month at Trinity United Methodist Church in Knoxville. It was a beautiful day with truly wonderful people, and I was very honored to be a part of it.

Claire’s makeup was just the right mix of sophistication and drama without being overdone. I also loved the orchids in her bouquet. Beautiful!

Possibly the most anticipated moment of the day is when the groom sees his bride coming down the aisle. Whether it’s a look of awe, shock, or just complete joy, it’s always fun to see his reaction.

Adam’s mother performed their ceremony with a heartfelt service which included communion and a foot washing.

I had never seen a foot washing done before, but I found it to be very romantic. It was a powerful symbol of their commitment and love – definitely something that more couples should consider including in their own ceremonies. There was even a lighthearted moment at the end while Claire struggled a bit to slide Adam’s sock back onto his still damp foot.

After the service, the guests enjoyed a sit-down dinner and dancing at Rothchild Conference Center. As always with Rothchild Catering, the food was great.

After their honeymoon in Blowing Rock, NC, I met back up with Claire and Adam for a photography session. I was so excited that we were able to go to Dara’s Garden for the photos because it is such an incredible venue with lots of cool photo opportunities. Amazingly, her bouquet had even survived the week fairly well and could be used in the photos.
