Elizabethton, TN: Sarah + Brandon's Intimate Summer Wedding in the Valley


36° 21' 29'' N           82° 11' 16'' W


Sarah and Brandon are such a sweet couple! Their paths originally crossed at a meetup where phone numbers were exchanged! They started texting and finally went on their first date for dinner and a movie! Their second date had been a hike on Roan Mountain, which is also where Brandon would propose to Sarah later on! Sarah told me that Brandon got down on one knee at the overlook where the rhododendrons cover the mountainside and he had the most gorgeous ring she's seen! Of course, she said yes!

We kicked off their wedding day at the Carnegie Hotel, where Sarah and her bridesmaids were getting ready! My second shooter, Jeremy, met the guys at the ceremony location. As it grew closer to ceremony time, we all packed up and headed to meet the guys! Sarah and Brandon had the sweetest ceremony nestled in a beautiful little valley, surrounded by family and friends. The weather was beautiful- not too hot and not raining, for once! The creek babbled and gave us a bit of a breeze for portraits. I just loved their classic details!

Sarah & Brandon-- Congratulations, you two! I am so happy for you and wish you many years of happiness together! 

Big thanks to Jeremy Gouge for second shooting and helping out on their day!
