Vanessa and Pat – December 12, 2020
Rainy Outdoor Weddings
So many people are afraid of the idea of rainy outdoor weddings, but not these two! Vanessa and Pat were our second wedding on December 12th. These two sweethearts didn’t let the rain faze them, and they were so sweet! Vanessa chose a long veil that was a lot of fun to play with, and they looked so adorable cuddling together. Congratulations, Vanessa and Pat!!
From the Bride:
He actually had added me on Facebook and we chatted back and forth for awhile and finally got to hang out at my house. It took 2 long years before we ever got to become a thing. The first date was in a tow truck working a wreck! He’s a tow truck operator and this has become much of our date nights and lives with food to go, no sleep etc but I wouldn’t change a thing because it’s made us closer.
He proposed. We went on a morning drive to get breakfast and ended up going to the lake near where we live which we frequent a lot. We got out and walked around by a dam talked awhile got back in drove down to an actual hiking spot and found this awesome little hidden spot that goes right down to the lake with a beach area. There was a downed tree that we decided to sit on. We sat and just talked and relaxed and it began to lightly rain, he turned to me and asked me to marry him and slid the ring on my finger!! It was straight out of a Nichols Sparks book.
We knew we wanted something small and we love Tennessee. We got online and found Chapel in the Hollow and absolutely fell I love with every picture and every wedding post we saw!
We are most looking forward to finally becoming one! We have waited for this for a long time and to finally have this day here is surreal and we can’t be more excited. There is no significance we wanted December around Christmas which is the brides favorite holiday so we chose the best date that worked for us.
We aren’t the typical couple. The husband to be is a tow truck operator and that’s how our date nights go and the bride absolutely loves it. To us helping people when they need it most brings us closer together.
