We ended up just talking at a rooftop bar for over four hours,” Lauren explained. “And, since he didn’t know his way around downtown Knoxville very well, I chose the longest route possible when he offered to walk me to my car.

I just didn’t want the conversation and laughs to end.

Quickly, I knew John was someone I wanted to have around, and I could tell that he was just plain good. 

I never felt confused,

nervous,

or rushed.

We’ve grown a beautiful friendship over the last two years, and I finally get what the big deal is about falling in love with your best friend!”

Beginning with so much surprise and unexpectedness, Lauren + John’s love grew so beautifully over the years; she saw him not only as the love of her life, but as a friend, and companion.

Their sweet wedding unfolded on a beautiful day in November. The location they chose for their wedding was Lauren’s grandparents’ old riverside home in the beautiful mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia. In the first couple of emails Lauren and I exchanged together, she explained how dear this riverside home is to her. She told me,

“When John and I marry this fall, we will do so on the same site where my parents married forty years earlier. None of my grandparents are alive now, so I love knowing that all four of them have walked on that piece of earth and that they would love to see John and me laughing and celebrating our love with family and friends.”

And, Lauren + John did just that: they were surrounded by loved-ones, good friends, constant laughs, smiles and hugs. Their wedding was filled with so much warmth, and joy, and perfectly portrayed just how down-to-earth, kind-hearted, and genuine Lauren and John are. They’re as sweet as homemade jam, and serve as a constant reminder of just how amazing my job is.

Lauren + John,
I just want to express how thankful I am that I got to be a part of your story. Thank you for welcoming me and allowing me to capture one of the most intimate times of your lives. I wish you both so much happiness and adventure in the years to come–you deserve nothing less.
Much love and appreciation to you both, 
– Kayla
