Today I’m sharing Hannah + Matthew Collins’ wedding at First United Methodist Church in Morristown, Tennessee! I’ve never photographed a wedding in this sanctuary, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Stained glass windows get me every time!
I met Hannah in my first semester of college. (P. S. We met when I was still an elementary education major – how things have changed! I eventually changed to business before graduating.) She is such a sweetheart, and I was so excited when she and Matt messaged me last year and asked to meet to discuss my wedding photography packages. Their engagement session at Knoxville Botanical Garden + Arboretum was one of my favorites I have EVER shot. They were so comfortable sharing both their goofy side and their romantic side in front of the camera. (If you want to see it, click here!)
I started their wedding day at the cabin that Hannah and her bridesmaids stayed in the night before. I IMMEDIATELY had heart eyes when I saw Hannah’s gorgeous dress and veil. (So romantic and feminine!) After the girls were ready, we traveled to the church for Hannah to put on her beautiful gown. Hannah and Matthew chose to see each other for the first time as Hannah walked down the aisle, and Matt had the biggest grin on his face as he saw his future wife for the first time that day.
My favorite part of their day had to be driving out on the golf course in golf carts (note to self – have someone else drive next time instead of myself) to take some sunset portraits of the new husband and wife. Near the end of this blog post, you’ll see a series of images where Matthew came up from behind Hannah and wrapped his arms around her waist, causing her to burst out in a fit of giggles. It was the cutest thing!
Hannah and Matthew, I am SO grateful to have met you both. Capturing this special season in your life was such a blessing to me, and I wish you all the best in your marriage!
