Wedding :: Jenny Franklin and Andy Henry are Married!!!!

Jenny Franklin and Andy Henry got married on September 26, 2009
At Twin Cedar Farm in Rockwood, TN.

Id love to say that it was a picture perfect day but I had doubts the day before when there was a 100% chance of rain. I was still shocked at how hard the rain came down all day. Guests were shuttled in to the wedding facility because the property was flooded. It was unbelievable.

Regardless of the weather, something really wonderful was taking place that day.
Jenny was marrying her best friend Andy
and the significance of that overshadowed everything else.
Rain or shine ... wedding days are always beautiful!

My assistant for the day was Lauren ... always a calm presence for me
... and a consistently thoughtful eye for details.
Im going to start with two of her shots because this pair is just lovely.
Well done, Lauren!

It poured and poured all day and finally around 7pm the clouds eased off and the rain stopped. As a result, the most amazing rainbow and sunset happened. I have never seen a sky so pink.
I was so thrilled when I saw this image - even with zero editing I thought this image was worth all that stormy weather.

The line-up for the day with some comments from Jenny:

The wedding coordinator: Michael Cannon

The venue: Twin Cedar Farm in Rockford, TN

The flowers: Tammy Phillips
I met Tammy through Anderson Rental (who I also used for my linens ) I saw Tammy's work and just fell in love immediately. Tammy was such an amazing person. My flowers were more than I dreamed of. I loved working with Tammy throughout our wedding process, I felt like she was more a friend than anything. I can honestly say anyone who has the chance to work and meet Tammy Phillips will be amazed at all she can do for you.

The Videographer: Ryan's Videography
They were amazing! They were there every step of the way the whole wedding day!

Andy and I met about three years ago through mutual friends. The first thing I noticed about him was his beautiful smile and charming personality. After meeting we immediately started talking all the time.

It wasn't shortly after that he asked me out on our first date, I remember being so nervous. After our first date we were inseparable, We spent all of our time together.

It was about a year after dating that we started talking marriage. On October 4, 2008 he asked me to marry him at Krutch park in downtown Knoxville. We were in Knoxville shopping for a jacket when I noticed he was acting so strange. I was turned away from him to look at something when I turned around to see him getting down on one knee. He was so nervous he dropped the ring! The proposal was so unexpected and so perfect!

We have been together for almost three years. When I was younger I always thought about my husband and my wedding day, I got exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be any happier I married my best friend!

The Photographer: Julie Roberts (of course)
After becoming engaged one of the first things I did was set out to find the perfect photographer. Before meeting with Julie I had met with several photographers. One night I happened to stumble across Julie's website, and I knew she was the one I wanted by looking at her blog. I could see the passion she had for pictures. After meeting Julie I knew I made the right decision. Our engagement session with Julie was just the most amazing feeling ever! We laughed and talked and I felt so comfortable. Our pictures were amazing just as our wedding photos will be. I can say Julie has a special place in my heart and I will look forward to using her in the future.

The cake: Angel Cake & Confections
I met Angel about eleven months before our wedding. The very night we met we designed our wedding cake. She is so talented. When I saw our wedding cake the day of the wedding I was overjoyed! Angel took our ideas and made us the perfect wedding cake and not to mention so very good!!

The food: Our food was catered by O'Charleys! They did a great job with the amount of food we ordered!

The Pour Guys from Maryville were the bartenders for the night.

Chip Fuller from Fuller Lights N Sound was our DJ. Chip was so much fun to work with he kept our guests happy and dancing all night which is the one thing we wanted!
