In June of last year we were honored to photograph Olivia and Garrett’s wedding day at The River Place with some fantastic vendors. Olivia spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids and mother. Just like in her bridal shoot, Olivia wore her gorgeous wedding dress accompanied with her signature pearls and cowboy boots.
This summer wedding began with an outdoor ceremony on a warm, East Tennessee day. Olivia and Garrett provided their guests with cold Coke’s to sip on during the ceremony to help keep cool. During the ceremony, Olivia and Garrett did a nontraditional ceremony including Jack and Coke. As if we didn’t already love them, this confirmed it. A beautiful floral arbor by LB Floral framed the two love birds as they said “I Do”.
From the ceremony there was a short walk back up to the main building were they held their reception. The couple had their first dance followed by the father/daughter and mother/son dances. Olivia and her Dad stole the show though. Their dance started out sweet and slow and the next thing anyone knew the bride and her dad were busting a move to a choreographed routine no one was expecting. So much fun!
The reception was filled with more floral pieces from LB Floral and with the refined touch of Margaret Claire’s planning every detail, it was just perfect for our couple. In keeping with the Coke theme, Garrett’s groom cake was a massive Coke can! So neat!
The newlyweds then danced the night away with their friends and family. Everyone had so much fun including us! These two were sent off through a tunnel a sparklers and it was perfect! Congratulations Olivia and Garrett. We hope you enjoy newlywed life. Thank you for bringing us along on your journey to wedded bliss!
