Whitestone Country Inn Wedding :: Knoxville TN Wedding Photographers
I admit, I have wept during ceremonies. How could you not?! When someone is admitting their love for one another in front of the ones that mean the most, how do you not shed a tear or two (or in my case several)? This Whitestone Country Inn wedding was a different story. My heart broke several times throughout the day, and I feel as though I cried the whole day. Luckily (I think), I was also sweating like crazy so no one knew 😜. These two & their families sure know how to love!!
The day was HOT! The lovely coordinator even thanked Jess several times throughout the day for having an indoor wedding. Imagine it being 90 degrees with absolutely no wind. Yeah, I am sure you get the picture. Still, nothing could have dampened this day with how much outpouring love there was.
As the girls prepared for the day ahead, Jess re-wrote her vows to Zach. It was so amazing to witness how much support, love, and encouragement the girls had for Jess. They lost it when they saw Jess in her gown for the first time! That is what true friendship should look like. It was so amazing to witness their love for Zach and Jess, and celebrate what the day was really about.
After a few heart felt tears, it was time for the gawgous bride to see her future husband for the first time in her gown. If you are considering a first look but are a little hesitant about it, be sure to check out this first look. Zach melted when he saw Jess for the first time. Ugh, their love for one another is incredible! I can’t get enough of these two.
So, obviously I cried during their vows. There is just something so special when a couple writes their own vows to one another. What I didn’t expect, was to also cry at their reception. The whole day was about Jess & Zach. All together, there were about 6 speeches. Each speech reflected on the years of Jess & Zach together, and how amazing their love is to witness. At one point, Zach even raised his glass to his mom for everything she has given him. My heart melted again and again!
Jess & Zach, I can’t say thank you enough!! You are ONE amazing couple and I am so honored to know you!
