On May 20, 2017 Valerie and Andrew embarked on the next phase of their lives together by getting married in the majestic St. Johns Neumann church located in Farragut, TN one of the largest and most beautiful Catholic churches in our area. The weather was perfect, blue skies and moderate temperatures. They declared their love and commitment to each other before God and many of their friends and family during a traditional Catholic Mass magnificently conducted by Father Doug Owens (St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church). The timeless features of the church greatly added to the significance and power of the event: A beautiful ceiling mural of epic scale, hand painted by a devout European artisan, and some exquisite stained glass art work brought in from older St. John’s churches around the country. Afterwards the newly married couple joined their guests at Sundance Farms for a lovely reception which included some great food, dancing, a trip to the lake for some romantic portraits and finally an energetic sparkler exit!
The church was beautifully decorated for this special event with flowers from multiple florists (see below).
A few days before the wedding, Andrew and Valerie recorded private messages to each other which were to be only revealed to the other in their wedding film. During this I learned why the couple was getting married and how beautiful and profound their relationship was and became deeply inspired to not only capture and reveal the physical beauty of this moment in time for them but also show the genuine and deep feelings they have for each other.
Many thanks to the following creative team for ensuring the day was perfect for this deserving couple.
