Knoxville Wedding Photographer – 2 Hodges Photography
Rachel and Fletcher had a rustic Knoxville wedding at Marble Springs Historic Site focusing on love, marriage and family, followed by a reception at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. We always love weddings coordinated by Absolute Wedding Perfection, and this gorgeous wedding with florals by Echelon Florist was no exception!
While Rachel is an only child, Fletcher comes from a large family and even has a twin brother. So, Rachel and Fletcher decided to forgo a traditional wedding party and asked Fletcher’s twin brother to officiate their ceremony. Fletcher’s dad performed a knot tying ceremony, and a friend gave the couple marital advice. We loved the unique, special touches for this wedding ceremony!
Rachel and Fletcher love nature, animals and art, so their reception at the Emporium was filled with unique artistic touches including adorable prints of wild animals used as table markers. They had a plated dinner by Bradford Catering including chicken cacciatore that was beyond delicious, and Jim Ogle with Ogle Entertainment Light and Design had the dance floor rocking.
This wedding day definitely had special moments we will not forget. Right after Rachel put on her dress, she mentioned that she knew it was the perfect dress because Fletcher loves stripes. Not only were we impressed because of how unique Rachel’s dress was but also because of the thoughtfulness she put into choosing her dress. We also loved seeing Fletcher stop to hug his dad as he and Rachel entered their wedding reception. Mostly, we love seeing the love and respect in Rachel and Fletcher’s eyes when they look at each other and hold each other.
Rachel and Fletcher: We have loved getting to know you and see how you love and respect each other. The way you look at each other gives us goosebumps! Thank you so much for letting us capture your beautiful wedding day as your Knoxville wedding photographers! We are so thankful for your friendship, too, and we are excited to see where marriage takes you!
