Brittany and Stuart

Chattanooga garden wedding

Brittany and Stuart celebrated their wedding day at The Venue in Chattanooga.
The clouds intermittently floated by as the bridesmaids got ready inside the garden house. It wasn’t supposed to rain -much at all. We all hoped it would wait until after the ceremony. And it did! Stuart waited at the garden patio for Brittany. He took a deep breath just before he turned to see her and at the sight of each other, they melted into each others’ arms.

The wedding day was filled with love from their college buddies (they fell head-over-heels at University of Alabama), and hilarious speeches from family members. Everyone celebrated Brittany and Stuart, making the wedding a day everyone would remember.

The day ended with couple of bonus night time photos at the garden patio and then a sparkler exit!

One of my favorite parts was how fabulously executed the sparkler exit went. Later some of the guests said they’d never participated in a sparkler exit before. Experience or not, they did great!

Brittany and Stuart, thank you for inviting me to share in one lovely wedding day! I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon in Greece and come back even more in love. I wish you many years of happiness together.
Thank you for the pleasure of being your wedding photographer.
Love, Nelya
