Ethan and Hannah originally planned for a wedding ceremony and reception, but with COVID numbers continuing to rise, the couple decided to cancel their plans. They agreed that it wasn’t about the big party or luxury of a wedding — actually getting married was the top priority. So they decided on a Chattanooga, Tennessee Elopement.
Prepare yourselves, because this one is a beauty.
After starting their day with a relaxing brunch, Ethan and Hannah exchanged vows on their own, tucked away in a precious and private location in downtown Chattanooga.
The bride and groom both said the moment was sweet, incredible..
and completely u n f o r g e t t a b l e.
To add to her flawless white gown, Hannah decided to wear a veil passed down from generations. Every woman in her family wore the same *gorgeous* veil on their wedding day.
Don’t you just love a sweet family heirloom?
For the next few hours of this special day, I chased Ethan and Hannah around the city for the perfect Chattanooga, Tennessee elopement photos. I made sure to capture their endless love, each moment of true excitement and all of the city’s beautiful scenery.
From the shots by the water in Coolidge Park to beautiful moments shared on the Walnut Street Bridge, this gorgeous Chattanooga, Tennessee elopement clearly did not disappoint!
The couple’s love and laughter continued to shine through with the perfect pops of color in Umbrella Alley and some incredible sunlight outside St. Pauls Episcopal Church.
Just look at those smiles!!
And look at that golden light!!
Needless to say..
Mr. & Mrs. Baker took Chattanooga by storm.
The Baker’s and I ended our time together under twinkle lights in the middle of the city. With a dip and a kiss, they drew an enthusiastic and smitten audience before they headed to celebrate with a lovely dinner and a stay at The Read House.
The couple agreed that this Chattanooga, Tennessee elopement was the sweetest and most fun way to seal the deal..
and much more perfect than they could have ever dreamed.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Baker!!!
I loved celebrating your Chattanooga, Tennessee elopement with you!!
