Knoxville Downtown Elopement

I met Hannah when she reached out to inquire about her wedding date. We were set for September 2021 and I could not wait! I tell every bride that I keep an open line of communication and if they think of any questions at all to reach out! Hannah was not shy and I loved it! We talked about everything from her wedding dress to which wedding colors she might choose. Before I knew it, I was shooting her family photos and I got to meet each one of her cute, spunky children! I fell in love with their family right away! Soon after, Covid came and we had to rethink our plans. Hannah mentioned the idea of eloping but keeping it a secret and surprising her family. I was so down! We planned her elopement for months and set a date right after the new year. I could not wait, I scouted downtown multiple times looking for the best locations for their first look and other moments. When the day finally came it was pure magic! Being able to see every detail we planned together come to life was such an incredible feeling. I love the aesthetic of downtown and the cool colors of January. Hannah made the most beautiful bride. Hannah also had a surprise for Alex. Alex loves whiskey so she decided to end their elopement by stopping at Knox Whiskey Works for a quick drink to celebrate their marriage. Cheers to these awesome newlyweds! I am forever grateful to be apart of such a memorable day.
