Pines at Genesee and Lookout Mountain Wedding
The Nelson Wedding was very dear to my heart. Ryan and I had known each other since our Lifeguarding days at the Apex, which was our summer highschool job. Ryan and Sarah had met on the job (after I had departed) and grew a beautiful relationship together the years to come. Sarah called me last year regarding my photography, and I Ryan and I didn't even realize the connection at the time! Small world!
For their wedding day, we started at Lookout Mountain for their first look, private exchange of vows, and a few stunning romantic photos. I loved that these two picked a first look and a few minutes to themselves before the wedding so they could relish in some downtime together. My favorite moment of the day is when they broke out their handwritten vows, whispered to each other softly, and made each other tear up with broad smiles.
From there we joined the rest of the wedding party at Pines at Genesee. Ryan's emotions were on display as Sarah walked down the aisle. He was completely choked up as he saw the rest of his life approaching him. See ladies! A first look doesn't mess your man's expression as you walk down the aisle.
The rest of the wedding was a complete blast! We snuck off for some intensely light golden hour photos, had a great time dancing, and stuffing our faces with cake. Did I mention these two are some of the best swing dancers I've ever met? I had no idea that Ryan had those moves! Their friends were also great swing dancers, which made for some stellar dance party photos!
Congrats Sarah and Ryan! Thanks for having me capture your special day! You both are absolutely adorable! I loved every minute of your wedding day!
