New Year’s Eve Wedding – Meg + Jason – Athens, TN Wedding Photographer


It was my first New Year’s Eve Wedding, and though the cold outside was FRIGHTFUL the warmth of the love Meg and Jason have for each other radiated from within…which was good because their outsides were FROZEN…just.like.my.hands! 😉

When life keeps tossing you curve balls, but you know you’ve met the person God designed just for you then you make the decision to just breathe…put the grand vision on the back burner and go with sweet and simple.

That’s what happened with this beautifully happy newlywed couple on December 31st, 2013. I got the call a few weeks before their new date, and I was in from the start! We started talking photography, and then onto silk flowers…she’s allergic to Poinsettias and her mother, who would be one of two Ministers to marry the couple, is allergic to Roses…silk was an obvious choice 😉

She got her J.Crew Wedding Dress from a friend, and with the help of her brilliant bestie/neighbor, Beverly and her husband, we descended on Hobbly Lobby two weeks before the big day to buy flowers and sash material to bring in some Burgundy to the classic Ivory gown.

They were married on one of the coldest days here in Tennessee at Keith Memorial United Methodist Church in Downtown Athens.

It was a sweet, intimate ceremony of close family and friends all tucked away in one of the quaint upstairs sanctuaries that had gorgeous light flooding through the stained glass windows.

Her dad couldn’t make it so we represented him in her bouquet with a tiny framed picture of the other most important man in her life. The Bride’s Mother, a Minister herself, had a very special set of “vows” for Meg’s precious daughter Paisley which was truly one of the most special moments I’ve ever witnessed in a wedding!

After the ceremony everyone headed outside, and braved the frigid, breezy courtyard for a group picture of all those who were able to help them ring in their new life together. The Bride’s friend, Bev, brought her grandmother’s Vintage Fur Coat which turned out to not only warm the Bride, but to be pure beauty on camera!

We ended the day as the sun was going down shooting images of the Bride and Groom in front of our McMinn County courthouse…too bad there wasn’t any snow that day 😉 And then finally topping it all off with the Bride re-donning her friend’s grandmother’s vintage Fur Coat for a few last minute Bridal Portraits.

Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Johnson for allowing me to not only capture this spectacular day for you, but to take part in the start of your happily ever after! XOXO, B
