An October wedding – Southern style!

Last month I was privileged to attend and photograph my partner’s son’s wedding near Kingsport, Tennessee. The wedding was organised and styled by April and Jon with lots of help and support from their families. It was held at lakeside venue run by the venerable Katie and was a stunningly beautiful day, with the sunshine and location bringing many and varied photographic challenges!

A fun celebration of love, joy and family, the entire day was brimful of laughter. I even managed to slip into a couple of the group photos but most of the day was incredibly busy as so much happened – processionals, dollar dances, cake-cutting, group dancing and a host of other moments – many traditions completely new to me. Hospitality was typically Southern with delicious food and drinks flowing throughout the evening. Favours and gifts were very personal and included jars of handmade apple butter, a local speciality. It was a delightful day and a pleasure to photograph; my very best wishes to April and Jon for a wonderful life together.
