Last year some of our friends got married in a small ceremony in Asheville, NC not far from where we had taken their engagement photos at the Biltmore. You can take a look at their engagement pictures at my earlier post last year, here. This post is to show some of the friends that celebrated in Knoxville, TN where they held a reception a few weeks later. The reception was held at Cherokee Mills, a historic building that has been here since the early 1900’s and is currently undergoing a full restoration and renovation, transforming the property into Knoxville’s premier office campus destination.

It was a pleasure to capture many memories of friendships and relationships of Jennifer and Cade as not only is their last name Long, but so is their list of friends!! Stories were shared by family and friends alike, cake was cut and food was eaten and the entire evening was a reflection of the depth of their relationship with others. Here are a few of my favorite images from the evening. There is much to share!!
This took place while Jenn and Cade greeted all of their guests
I loved the elegance of these flutes and their smiles that just radiate joy!
The cake was amazing from what I heard! It looked delicious from my perspective.
Jenn and Cade heard friends and family share stories of them in their 3 year relationship. Some of the stories were a hoot!
Friends and Teachers in ESL. Jennifer you are radiant! Deanna you certainly don’t look like you just had a little one!
And more good friends. Ladies you are truly beautiful, inside and out!
And more great friends, Elissa and John Boltik, who’s art is displayed behind the couples.
Well, that’s all for now! I’ll have more pictures up later this week of a few more friends and pictures from the reception. Thank you Jenn and Cade for the honor of capturing not only you and the beautiful memories of the evening, but for your blessing and example of a couple who has sought the Lord for so long (no pun intended) and are now beginning a new journey together! It is a blessing to watch your journey. May God bless you both richly!
Until next time…
