We started off trying to do pictures of her and with her bridesmaids and family, but mother nature had other plans and it started to rain 2 hours before the wedding. It would rain hard, then slow down, but never really stopped. Heather surprised me. She was still happy and didn’t let the rain bother her. Starkey-town-cove-wedding-venue-photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Gatlinburg-TN-Sevierville-Knoxville-Smoky-Mountains-national-park-outdoor-ceremony-newlywed-bride-groom-14Starkey-town-cove-wedding-venue-photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Gatlinburg-TN-Sevierville-Knoxville-Smoky-Mountains-national-park-outdoor-ceremony-newlywed-bride-groom-15

Closer to time for the ceremony, she had an option. She could do the ceremony under the pavilion or have the guest with umbrellas and do it at the original site. She made a comment that I loved hearing “I would stand in the rain to marry him” and she did. All the guest had umbrellas and came closer to the site while others stayed back. It was such a beautiful wedding and made for such special memories.Starkey-town-cove-wedding-venue-photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Gatlinburg-TN-Sevierville-Knoxville-Smoky-Mountains-national-park-outdoor-ceremony-newlywed-bride-groom-16Starkey-town-cove-wedding-venue-photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Gatlinburg-TN-Sevierville-Knoxville-Smoky-Mountains-national-park-outdoor-ceremony-newlywed-bride-groom-17Starkey-town-cove-wedding-venue-photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Gatlinburg-TN-Sevierville-Knoxville-Smoky-Mountains-national-park-outdoor-ceremony-newlywed-bride-groom-18

When it came time that David could kiss his wife for the first time. He said “THANK GOD!” and grabbed Heather for the sweetest kiss!
