Leah and TJ’s emotion-filled wedding at the Hunter Museum of American Art, an incredibly gorgeous wedding venue right by the beautiful Tennessee Riverfront in downtown Chattanooga was a dream job for us. Beautiful, classy couple filled with love for each other, a cultured celebration with incredible families, bi-lingual wedding vows, an art museum filled with natural light, stunning floral arrangements, and delicious cuban faire, what more could we have asked for?
Leah and TJ stole our hearts from the beginning. Their connection was incredible to photograph during their engagement session, so we knew that their wedding day was sure to be a beautiful and ultra special event.
As wedding photographers, we are always in heaven shooting at the Hunter, with it’s visually interesting architecture and loads of natural light pouring through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Did I mention the natural light? Because, really, it’s just that wonderful.
Leah and TJ chose to have a first look before their ceremony, so we had enough time to sneak away and capture some intimate and fun moments! We enjoyed using the nearby glass bridge, and we definitely took advantage of the overlook with the walking bridge in the background. Downtown Chattanooga and the art district are just dripping with inspiration as the setting for romantic weddings!
Our favorite moment of the day would have to be when Leah surprised TJ by saying her wedding vows in Spanish and TJ’s reaction was pure gold. Crying behind the camera makes our job a little more difficult but it’s also a sign that we are blessed with the best clients and are truly honored to be part of such meaningful moments!
With an emotional ceremony behind us, we began to document Leah and TJ’s beautiful reception, complete with absolutely stunning floral arrangements by the team at MayFlowers (be sure to see the collage below), authentic cuban cuisine by the ever talented team at Events with Taste, a masterpiece of a cake by the Yellow Cake Co; and as always, the ladies at Soirees kept the day running smoothly and professionally!
As always, credit is due to a group of talented vendors who make our jobs easier, more enjoyable, and more beautiful! Basically, these people rock!
