Lauren + Jonathan | The First Chattanooga NotWedding.
I seriously cannot imagine a better way to celebrate my birthday (which is indeed, today!) than to finally be able to share some photos with y’all from The First Chattanooga NotWedding! From the very first moment I found out Photos By Heart was selected to participate in this event, it’s been an amazing experience. The two cuties you’re looking at in the above photo are Lauren + Jonathan (anyone remember their lovely SAVE THE DATE shoot?); the marriage commitment, love and admiration they possess for one another truly is inspiring — it was an honor to witness their vow renewal (and y’all know I got all teary-eyed behind the camera!)
In addition to these two, so many more beautiful and talented people came together to make this event spectacular. It was an absolute treat to work alongside some of the best wedding vendors Chattanooga has to offer; I’m not exaggerating when I say that with everyone we met, it felt as though we were talking with long-time friends — and you can’t ask for any better than that.
LAUREN. You’re a knockout!
