Emily + Derrick {A Christmas Wedding | Cleveland, TN}

It’s official, I (Alan) am getting old!  I have now photographed a bride whose birth announcement I can remember…yikes!  Meet Emily and her husband Derrick.  Emily’s family and I go way back.  Her father Ron was my Sunday school teacher way back when at First Baptist Athens.  I still remember Emily as a child…pigtails, freckles, and as cute as can be!  Where does the time go?  Instead of pigtails, Emily has no grown into a beautiful young lady, and I was honored recently to photograph her Christmas wedding.  It was a perfect December day in Cleveland, TN.  Temps in the 60s, a bit windy (ok, maybe a LOT windy), and the incoming rain held off just long enough for Derrick and Emily’s big day.  Thanks guys for allowing us to be a part of your wedding; we had a blast!

While Jenn was off celebrating Christmas with her family, I was joined by my friend and fellow photographer Marcey Allen to help capture Emily and Derrick’s wedding.  I loved the different angles she was able to capture throughout the day;  thanks friend!

 

 

 

After grabbing some details at the Lee University Chapel, I swung by the Old Woolen Mill where the girls were getting ready.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love this sequence of Emily giving letters and bridal portraits to her mom and dad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#WeddingSelfie Love it!

Such perfect colors in the bridal bouquet.

 

 

Derrick putting the finishing touches on his letter to Emily.

 

Fantastic shot by Marcey as Emily is just about to show her bridesmaids the wedding dress.

 

 

About a week before the wedding, I met up with Emily to do a bridal session.  The next several images of her are from that day.  She was an absolute trooper!  It may not look like it, but believe me…it was COLD that day!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back to the big day.  This was such a great moment between father and daughter!

 

 

And Marcey was able to capture mom sneaking a peek!

The exchange of letters before seeing each other.

 

What a powerful moment!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few of the groom looking quite good.

 

Derrick and the guys.

 

While I was away getting pictures of the gentlemen, Marcey was getting Emily and her bridesmaids by the Christmas tree on Lee’s campus.

 

 

No groomsmen  Only one groomsman was harmed during the making of these pictures!  Ha!

 

 

Instead of a book, guests signed and then hung Christmas ornaments on a tree.

 

 

 

As the ceremony begins.

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the cell phone grab in the background; love it!

As I was finishing the ceremony, Marcey was getting the reception details before everyone arrived.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first dance.

 

 

 

 

Such a great moment between father and daughter!

And the party begins!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A first for me…the football garter toss.

Yes!

 

As the Vestals leave for Jamaica; congratulations!
