Caitie and Jon’s Knoxville Wedding
at Graystone Presbyterian and The Foundry Reception
May weddings are some of my favorite. And maybe that’s because I was married in May, or it could be that typically, it’s finally getting warm here in east Tennessee. Either way, Caitie and Jon’s Knoxville wedding at Graystone Presbyterian Church and The Foundry was a lovely one.
Match.com Wins Again!
Caitie and Jon met on Match.com where so many of my couples are finding luck meeting their perfect partner. Caitie says that she and Jon are a great team.
“We share so many of the same interests and at the core of who we are, we value all the same things. Jon is everything 1 Corinthians 13 says love should be. When you marry someone like that, it’s easy to feel loved and it’s easy to love. And while our story isn’t a wild, crazy, riotous one, it’s ours.” -Caitie
While out on a date, the two went for a walk at World’s Fair Park. Jon distracted Caitie by asking her how tall she thought the Sunsphere was. As she pondered, staring up at our big gold ball in the sky, Jon dropped to one knee holding a gold sphere of his own. This one just had a diamond attached!
“All he could get out was, ‘Amy Caitlyn, will you marry me?’ He said he had a speech planned, but the words couldn’t come out. I said yes and completely freaked out. The man of my dreams had the ring of my dreams in a tiny red box.” -Caitie
The Big Day
Caitie and Jon’s wedding day was full of sunshine both literally and figuratively! Caitie had 3 first looks: one with her father, another with her bridesmaids, and finally with Jon. They were all so touching in their own way. After their traditional church ceremony and family group photos, I had a few minutes with them alone to capture some really cool church photos before we headed to The Foundry for the reception.
Overall, it was a perfect day to promise forever. Congrats, Mr. & Mrs. Horton!
