Bethany & Tom . An Amazing Love Story . Chattanooga Wedding Photographer
What an amazing love story…
Tom is one of those incredible compounding Pharmacists who actually create drugs, mixing the components himself. As owner of Solutions Pharmacy he hired this really lovely woman to work for him a few years ago – her name is Bethany. Bethany is gorgeous, kind, loving, nurturing, sweet, genuine, witty, sarcastic, and she’s one of those people who can light up your day with one sentence. How could Tom not just fall head over heels in love with her? And how could she not be drawn to his kind, gentle, and brilliant personality? They’re perfectly matched.
After a year or more of planning their beautiful, intimate ceremony at The Grandview on Lookout Mountain their perfect wedding almost didn’t happen. Tom and his groomsmen went to Amsterdam for Toms bachelor party and were unable to leave because of airline closings due to the volcanic ash from Iceland. Incredibly they were able to get a flight and make it home just in time. The outdoor ceremony and reception were nearly moved indoors because of the 80% chance of thunderstorms (and the staff of Blissful Moments and Grandview did a phenomenal job planning and setting up just in case). It rained once, all day, for about 30 seconds. A vase of flowers stood in the place of Tom’s father, his best man, who sadly passed away before the wedding. We decided that the 30 second burst of rain, right as we were posing the family formals – was his way of letting us know he was there.
Thankfully, the wedding did happen and it happened perfectly. Few weddings go quite so well. All the guests and family were wonderful and had an amazing evening celebrating the marriage of Bethany and Tom. We ended the evening at Stone Fort Inn where the couple stayed the night before heading off to spend their two week honeymoon on a private island in Fiji.
A mix of photojournalism and Fine Art images is what you’ll see here… the real moments and the art that tells their love story. One of my favorite images was captured by Cristie – where Bethany is loving watching as Tom dances with his mother -gorgeous! Definitely more Fine Art images than we normally show – but they suit the day, the couple, and the moments.
