December 30, 2017 Church Wedding in Baxter, TN

E+K wedding blog 2 21.jpg

What better way to close out the year than to celebrate love! We got to travel over the mountain to capture Kristie and Ethan's December vows and though it never got above freezing, the warmth of this couple's happiness was almost enough to forget the chill. 

Impressively, with the help of family and friends, Kristie and Ethan put together an almost totally DIY wedding, even including all the delicious food! It was obvious from all the care each person put into making their day special, just how loved and in love Kristie and Ethan are. Thanks so much to everyone who helped make their beautiful day such a success - I can't wait to share more photos!
