I have known Brooke since she was a junior in high school. That is when I shot her senior school portraits. It is always a cool feeling when you get a phone call a few years down the road asking if you can do another photo shoot for someone. Especially when it was one of your seniors who is now going to be getting married! Which in this case would be the beautiful Brooke!
Brooke & Justin were married on August 4th 2017, at Tennessee River Place . It was a perfectly beautiful day. The forecast was calling for rain but luckily we never saw any the entire day. There was beautiful sun shining down in the valley in between the mountains along the rivers edge. Everything was lush and green around the venue. There was laughter through out the air as the day unfolded.
Brooke and her bridesmaids were the perfect image of bohemian, whimsical land mermaids. They all wore their flower crowns and each dress accented the next perfectly with the colors ranging from pale blushes, creams, tans, whites and greens. Justin and his groomsmen were tucked away in the grooms sweet hanging out and having fun. Each one wore bright colored fun socks. Before Justin and his groomsmen went out to take photos they said a prayer and all gathered around Justin. You could feel a peace come over the groom and a calmness as if God had his hand on everyone in the room. It was such an awesome moment during the day just to stop and pray and thank God for all he has done for Brooke and Justin through out their lives and leading them up unto this point.
The ceremony was in the early evening. Flower petals aligned the chairs that were sitting in the grass along the walk way. Verses from the bible were written on wooden signs all along the isle. Guests arrived and took their seats and the ceremony started. The brides maids and groomsmen were flawless. The flower girls were so effortlessly adorable and Brooke was breath taking. As soon as Justin put his eyes on her he lit up like the morning sky line. Their vows were exchanged and I do’s were said. Broke and Justin sealed it with a kiss and their adventure as husband and wife had begun.
The reception followed after the ceremony and it was memorable for sure! The mother son and father daughter dance was a huge surprise to all guests when they had a choreographed routine to music. It was so fun! Dinner was served and open dancing began. Laughs echoed into the night air while music bumped late into the night. So many memories were made on that wonderful day. The night ended with a sparkler exit into a limo. Congrats Brooke and Justin! May you live happily ever after!
