Child-Free Micro Wedding
Katie and Andrew – September 10, 2023
Katie and Andrew created an intimate micro wedding at Chapel in the Hollow, celebrating their love in a child-free ceremony filled with warmth and elegance. The chapel was adorned in enchanting blush and black fabric, beautifully complemented by our blush and bashful florals, setting the stage for a day filled with love.
Katie, a vision of grace, wore an off-the-shoulder dress that radiated sophistication and style. Andrew looked equally dashing in black pants, a crisp white shirt, and suspenders. Their attire was a reflection of the simplicity and elegance that defined their special day.
Katie chose to walk down the aisle by herself, a powerful statement of her independence and strength. She wore a locket that held his mother’s ashes close to her heart, a touching tribute to their shared connection and the memory of a loved one.
Surrounded by their closest friends, Katie and Andrew each had four best friends stand up with them during the ceremony. Their bond with these dear friends added a layer of warmth and support to their union. To sweeten the celebration, they brought a cute cake and set up a table with refreshing lemonade and sweet tea for their guests. It was a delightful touch that added a sense of camaraderie to their micro wedding.
From the Bride:
Andrew and I met when we were 13 when i transferred schools. We had mutual friends and he ended up being the only person I knew going into the new school year. We hit it off pretty quickly and started dating September 14, 2015 and we have been inseparable ever since. You could say we are “high school sweethearts” but we really have been together since the middle of middle school, when we were 13. We both turn 21 this year so nearly 8 years in total. Together we have created a beautiful life and have a love that is one of a kind. We are defying all the odds and proving that just because you are young, you still know when you know. We truly are two peas in a pod and everyone around us has always known that we are in this for life. Marriage is something we’ve always looked forward to and we are so happy to finally be taking that step.
We decided on having an East Tennessee micro wedding because some of my family lives local to the area, so it just made more sense for us to travel rather than for them. For fun, we both are definitely homebodies, we enjoy staying home and watching tv on our couch. We enjoy being home in the peace and quiet with one another.
