Morgan + Mike // Sacred Heart Cathedral Wedding

Today’s blog post features photographs from Morgan + Mike’s wedding at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Knoxville AND their reception at RiverView Family Farms! Morgan + Mike actually became boyfriend and girlfriend after he asked her by the playground at Sacred Heart, so they actually got married just steps away from where their relationship began! How cool is that?! I think that is the most full-circle moment I’ve witnessed in my ten years of shooting. Here are my top three favorite moments from their wedding day:

  1. Morgan + Mike had a first look outside the front doors of the cathedral, and afterward they read private vows to one another. Morgan got emotional during her vows, and Mike stepped over to give her a hug before she continued. It was such a simple sweet moment, and it reminded me why a first look is so special beyond having the extra portraits before the ceremony!
  2. Their dogs Rusty + Jack made an appearance before the ceremony for a few photos with Mom + Dad! As a dog mom myself, this was DEFINITELY a highlight of the day for me.
  3. Because Morgan + Mike have been together so long (getting close to a decade at this point!), the members of their wedding party are close with both of them. I loved hearing stories from the best man and maid of honor during their speeches that showed just how special this couple is to all who know them.
