Owusu - Baafi / Evans Wedding July 17, 2010

Shallow Ford Baptist Church, Erwin, TN

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Erwin is a little town in the middle of the Cherokee National Forest near the North Carolina border. I had never been there before, but I enjoyed the drive last weekend as we made our way to Shallow Ford Baptist Church for Afia and Paul's wedding. After the ceremony, everyone headed over to Johnson City for a reception at the Holiday Inn.

Afia and Paul have a couple session planned with me, and I am really looking forward to seeing them again. Since I will be sharing photos of them later, I decided to do something different with this post and am just focusing on one little part of the wedding day.

Weddings are about many things, from the dress and cake to the actual ceremony, but one very emotional and important aspect is the relationships. Family and friends were a very important part of this wedding day. Even though the members are scattered in different states and continents, it was obvious that these are very close, loving families. Many guests came out to support and celebrate with the couple, and they were all so very nice. As a wedding photographer, it is important to document the special little moments between people, and here are a few from Afia and Paul's wedding.

A creative (and pretty) wedding idea to copy:
Although many modern brides are skipping favors in order to save money, if you ARE going to give your guests a gift then edible options are always popular. This wedding used the tulle-wrapped favors as part of the table decorations with several different variations. The tall centerpieces had the favors tied to branches while others had them placed around the bottom of a flower arrangement or inside a fish bowl vase with a pillar candle.

The emotion you captured in all of these pictures is incredible, but the first picture is simply amazing!

Dear Nancy,

Thank you so much for posting the favors i made for Afia and Paul's wedding on your site. I was very excited and love to buy any pictures you took of the favors. Would that be possible?
These pictures are just splendid. Thanks very much for the publicity as well.
