How do your images make you feel? Is there a favorite?
"We love our pictures! There is not a bad one in the bunch. We love looking through them and reliving the day. Our favorites are hard to choose but as a whole, we love the fact that there were so many candid shots of the people who attended our wedding because we didn’t get to see everyone and so it was good to have photos of them and see everyone having a great time smiling and laughing." - Brock and Savannah
How did the two of you meet?
"We met through Facebook technically a little over 2 years ago. I’m from the Blountville area, currently living in Kingsport. He is from Pennington gap, Va. we were friends on Facebook for months before he messaged me. We had some mutual friends. I didn’t date much... like didn’t date or go on dates with anyone for 6 years before I met him. I wanted to buy a house and career establish and was waiting for the right guy. His message was sweet and grammatically correct which stood out from other guys and so I responded. We went on a dinner date on a Thursday. I thought it would be about an hour and was a 3.5-hour date and was so easy and flowed. I work in Big Stone Gap which is close to where he grew up so it was like God’s hand at work. My family instantly loved him and I love his mom and family so much too." - Savannah
"My favorite detail was a sweet detail most wouldn’t have noticed. I had my necklace intertwined in my bouquet that was from my papaw Jerry that he had given to my mamaw on their 25th wedding anniversary. It had her initials on it and a message from him." - Savannah
What was your favorite moment or moments on your wedding day?
"One of my favorite moments was waiting to walk down the aisle and seeing a packed cathedral with all the family and friends we love there to celebrate us. Also together, we feel like the Vows we wrote and delivered to one another were a favorite because we had not shared anything and just hearing them and delivering them in front of everyone was a sweet moment." -Savannah
Describe how you felt & what was racing through your mind when you saw one another for the first time.
"We both were a little nervous and anxious as we had not shared any details about what Savannah was wearing, makeup, or how the hair would be for that day. All the anxiousness built up but when the doors opened it was a relief and just excitement to get married."
-Brock & Savannah
"My favorite moment was seeing Savannah when the cathedral doors open for the first time as she walked down the aisle."
