Iconic Sunsphere Wedding


January 7, 2020


The Sunsphere is one of my favorite wedding and event venues in Knoxville for many reasons. It is our city’s most iconic landmark, it is centrally located, and it has an amazing view of downtown, UT campus, and the Smoky Mountains. The event staff is top notch and spoils each guest. Ariane and Aaron booked a last minute affair for their iconic Sunsphere wedding, I was thrilled to have the date available for them!

Bride Tribe

Ariane recently finished law school at the University of Tennessee and was honored as the first female to give the commencement speech. How’s that for some go girl power? Her daughter and 3 sisters helped her with finishing touches. They were the perfect bride tribe and showered her with compliments and well wishes. I have young daughters and hope they adore each other like that too. Well, maybe they will one day.

Sunset Ceremony in the Sky

Ariane and Aaron married overlooking the Knoxville skyline just as the sun set behind them. They were surrounded by family and friends. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. Congrats on a great iconic Sunsphere wedding, Mr. & Mrs. Hookman!
