Tellico Plains Community Center Wedding

They met in high school through a mutual friend.
On a field trip, Tater told her she looked lonely and he knew a lonely boy. Linda sighed, and said OK but I won’t text him first! Within 2 hours Kaleb texted her.
Two weeks later they went on their first date.
It didn’t take long for them to fall in love and know one day they would get married.
Last week they They said I Do in front of their friends and family at the church Linda went to as a child and later taught bible school at. The wedding reception was held at the Tellico Plains Community center just off of the Cherohala Skyway

Linda and Kaleb,
I can’t believe it was already 8 years ago that you welcomed me to Tennessee with a loveable friendly tiger striped kitten that we creatively named Stripe. He was one of my first models when I started photography.
Thank you for choosing to serve our country. I hope you have safe travels and are enjoying your new adventure to Texas right now.
Thank you for the honor of documenting your love and I wish you only the best  Much love, Nelya

They chose to do a first look which always makes me so happy because they get so many special photos to remember their wedding day with.
