If there was an award for most excited facial expression on your wedding day, Kate would win. This gal could not stop grinning -- like over the moon, I can't believe this is happening, grinning. She and Ben were married last July at the Tennessee River Place, surrounded by family and friends that were equally as thrilled to see these two tie the knot. It was obvious that everyone there had been encouraged by, prayed for and loved on by this beautiful couple. And even though the weather put a damper (get it?) on their lawn-game reception, it didn't stop folks from celebrating. Also, fun fact : Kate and I communicated for about a month before we realized that her Ben and I went to elementary school together! #smallestworld
We really couldn't have asked for a better venue with the rain -- The Tennessee River had plenty of lovely balconies and alcoves which allowed us to enjoy natural light and stay dry at the same time. The only comment the two made about the rain was how nice it was to not be hot (Tennessee in July, remember). That's the kind of wonderful optimistic folks I get to work with.
