Happy Crazy-East-Tennessee-Thunderstorm-Monday morning to everyone!!! The torrential downpour held off long enough for us to have a beautiful Saturday filled with a beautiful wedding! But that will come later! I have been dying to show you all Lauren and Dane’s big day!!! I absolutely love it when I get to shoot at someone’s home! It makes the pictures mean so much more…at least to me, when I know that they can look back one day and know that a place so familiar and comforting played such a big role in making their day so special! Lauren’s parents loving gave up their home one beautiful September Saturday morning for quite a few people to run around in! Here are just a few of some of my favorite moments!




Their first see was so cute and incredibly sweet! Lauren started bawling just before she saw Dane. But once they saw each other, it was all smiles from there on!




Beautiful stone porch, beyond awesome weeping willow, and two people who are insanely in love…of course I got the perfect shots!!





Gotta love those Groomsmen!! 


Lauren and Dane’s priest was by far my favorite of the year!! He was so exuberant and vivacious and his love was contagious!!! He had the entire congregation cracking up at his stories and and jokes! Definitely a great way to start off a life together!

Adore his face here... just as they are about to kiss...

A little through-the-viewfinder action at the church... shot with a Brownie Hawkeye and my D700.


On to the party!!! Lauren and Dane…they know how to dance, well, maybe!


 Who says I can't have a little bit of fun?!

These next three series are some of the best!

Lauren’s brother treated the bride and groom (and the rest of the guests) with a beautiful and also hilarious song. Lets just say there wasn’t a dry eye in the place!

Perhaps..the funniest bouquet face catch EVER!


And even though I am a huge Vol fan, I have to give it to Dane. Being one of a few Gator fans in a room full of Volunteers takes some guts…and getting them to eat Gator cake…even more!


Lauren and Dane…you made my day by asking me to be there for your big one! Congratulations! Ya'll are super dang lucky to have each other!!

Check back tomorrow! I can't wait for you guys to see what I'm working on!
