Lauren and Andrew’s wedding may have taken place on New York’s Long Island, but their love story started in Atlanta, Georgia.
They met through friends, fell in love, and he swept her off her feet so far….they landed in Maryville, Tennessee!
To say we were ‘excited’ when we received the call to be their photographers would be the understatement of the year! We were elated!! My team of Knoxville Wedding Photographers was so excited to pack up our gear, and head up north!
Lauren and Andrew wanted their engagement session in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and I’m so happy we were able to accommodate that! Having the licensing to work within the GSMNP borders has opened so many wonderful photo opportunities for us…we consider it a huge blessing to be official Smoky Mountain photographers. Check out these two love bird’s engagement session…you’ll be happy you did! Lauren & Andrew :: Winery Engagement Session
This New York wedding day flowed perfectly. From getting ready at Hotel Indigo Long Island, to the party van transport to The Vineyards at Aquebogue ! When Lauren stepped into her Pnina Tornai bridal gown, the bridal suite went silent… Lauren’s mom looked on her with such happiness, the whole room could feel it! If you’re a crier like me, you may want to grab a tissue before you look at the First Look photos… don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I encourage everyone to check out the stellar video by Axel Marrero Studios, that crew was a blast to work with!
This venue will leave you speechless, I know it did me! Those that know me know that for me to be speechless is HUGE! Once we regained composure from the breathtaking venue and it’s kind, professional staff…we got blown away AGAIN by Barattini Productions !! I loved all of these guys! The sax player made his way around the dining room, serenading each table! The drummer was ON the dance floor! If you know me, you know I have a soft spot for drummers….my own daddy being one 🙂 I’ll just confess…I was not ready for this level of reception entertainment! Multiple times throughout the evening Steven had to tell me to close my mouth…my jaw dropped too many times to count!
I know you will enjoy these images!! We loved every minute of capturing them!!
