Barn in the Bend Wedding
For Sarah and Chris’s wedding, their could be no better venue for them than the Barn in the Bend. With their rustic-boho style, this couple is perfect.
Chris and Sarah have actually become wonderful friends over the past few months since their engagement. In fact, in November of 2015, I drove out to Crossville, TN to shoot their engagement at Cumberland Mountain State Park. After that, Sarah and I were in constant contact, and I was able to watch their love grow as the wedding drew nearer.
The Day Of
Finally, the day of their wedding arrived, after a much anticipated arrival. May 21,2016. The week of the wedding, the weather was gloomy, stormy, and rainy, but on this day, the storm clouds rolled away and left the perfect wedding weather in its place. Sarah was very giddy (as she always is), and was so excited to see Chris. The two of them planned on a first look because they could not stand the thought of having to wait all day to see each other! After the two were ready, they eagerly went to their meeting place, and told each other how much they appreciate one another. And, as Chris said, “He is glad he found someone to put up with him.”
As the day went on, they had to separate from each other so that they could begin the ceremony. From the start of the musicians (Sarah’s brother) first note, the ceremony began. First, the crowd watched as Chris and his groomsmen came down. Then the Bridesmaids, and the flower girls. Finally, everyone stood, and watched as Sarah came down the isle and the two locked eyes, grinning from ear-to-ear.
It was a wonderful ceremony, and as the two stood there listening to the officiant, and repeating “I do,” Chris was finally given the words: “Chris, you may kiss your bride.”
The rest of the day was a blur, for sure, but one thing was very evident throughout the day: Sarah and Chris have an undeniable love and affection for each other, and I want to wish them a happy, and wonderful marriage. Congratulations.
