Some weddings just stick to you like feathers and glue. Whitney and Reece’s Chattanooga, Tennessee wedding is one of those. Maybe it isn’t the wedding. Maybe it’s the two of them, actually.
I couldn’t wait to capture their love story. We’d met for beers, we’d had an incredible summer engagement session in all of Chattanooga’s iconic locations since they had moved here from Alabama. I knew on the day of their nuptials, it would be filled with beautiful love (I mean look at these two), impeccable style, and a down and dirty good time. We had high expectations, so to speak.
They exceeded all of them.
It was a blistery and rainy January winter wedding. So you know I loved it. The girls got ready in an East Chatt Airbnb, where Whitney blew everyone away in her Lela Rose gown. She and Reece shared a first look in the gardens at Patten Chapel with Whitney wrapped up in an heirloom fur shawl. Patten Chapel was decorated minimally with candles and classic white blooms and greenery - leaving the architecture to wow their guests.
After she and Reece sealed the deal with a kiss, we hopped in Chattanooga’s free shuttle to hitch a ride over to the Church on Main, where they’d brought in a band, a caricature artist, black leather couches for an ultra modern statement, and Wildflower Wedding Planning ramped up the party with glow sticks and foam lights. There was no shortage of fun and dancing, and so many ways for their guests to be involved in the experience of their contemporary classic winter wedding!
