NANCY + JOHNSON - Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Wedding

Nancy + Johnson's wedding holds a special little place in my heart. You see, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is where my husband and I got married. : )

Their ceremony was held at First Presbyterian Church and the reception was at DSBG. I got all KINDS of teary-eyed (more than usual!) when shooting Nancy + Johnson's portraits around the gardens. They were such a joy to photograph (read: LOVE cuddly couples!).

I know Nancy from high school, and I'm so, SO happy she wanted me to shoot she and Johnson's wedding. Nancy looked so gorgeous (pretty much was obsessed with photographing her dress...you'll see), and Johnson was so warm and welcoming (the wedding day was my first time meeting him!). Everything went pretty flawlessly. I loved the stained glass windows of the church, and the florals were just breathtaking. Congrats to the newlyweds! And, Go Deacs and Vols! ; )
