On the morning of Dec 7, 2013 at 4:30am I was woken up by my alarm. If you know me, you know I like to sleep until the last possible second. As I snoozed, and kept sleeping, I was awaken, not by the alarm clock but by the sound of our wedding song "White Dress" by Ben Rector.
Andy was wide awake, playing our wedding video that he had received just a few hours ago from our videographer.
I didn't even put on my glasses, as excitement filled my body.
I cried seeing my little cousins, I smiled seeing my father in law praying with andy before the ceremony, i giggled as i saw all the girls seating on the bed singing this song, i got goosebumps as i saw the car approaching and knew i was about to walk down the aisle, i laughed when andy had to run to get water for the plant in the middle of the ceremony. So many great moments captured.
Andy had the idea of doing a music video as our wedding video.
Our bridal party thought we were a little weird making them sing a song they had never sang before...but they played along and it turned out exactly how we pictured it.
You can see the video here
I spent so much time describing that moment because it was the start of our anniversary trip. It was the most memorable moment for me.
A few minutes later we were dressed and ready to get on the plane to Chattanooga, TN and then drive over to Knoxville, TN. Knoxville was so pretty. I loved the vintage style and taste the city was surrounded by. I felt right at home.
I loved the brick buildings, the thrift stores right next to each other, the small, comfy coffee shops, and the views that left you speechless.
We ate a lot, explored, climbed hills, entered abandoned cabins (well andy did), took pictures by a cemetery, and most importantly enjoyed each others company.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the first part of our trip. There are a lot...so sit tight and enjoy
The next part of our trip was to Mobile, Alabama to visit Andy's awesome & super sweet grandparents! Don't worry, we took less pictures!
