Sarah & Aaron's Wedding - Knoxville Tennessee - Michael Allen Photography

Last weekend we traveled to east Tennessee to photograph Sarah & Aaron's Wedding in Knoxville. Seems like this year I've been all over the country, and the Caribbean photographing lots of fun weddings. Sarah & Aaron were a joy to work with, and the hospitality that their families and friends shared with us was simply amazing. One of my personal highlights (outside of the wedding) was the 2:30 a.m. hotel fire alarm that had about 300 hundred guests standing out in the street in our jammies. We were all half asleep, but definitely made some memories with this "after-after" party. Fortunately, it was a false alarm, and we all climbed back up the 9 stories in the stairwell and crawled back in our beds and went fast to sleep. The next day I had a little "jet lag" from my interrupted sleep, but the weekend was a great adventure. We drove to Knoxville a few days early to explore the mountains, took our daughter to a real gold & gem mine where she panned for gold, spent two days with our dear friend Dolly Parton in Dollywood, and I got a chance to hike the Cumberland mountain trails and zip across five 1000 ft zip lines at blazing speeds in my repelling gear. That was about as much fun as my shark diving adventures in Little Cayman a few years back. Anyway, back to the wedding! We had great weather, a beautiful blue sky day, and perfect temperatures in the 80's. The wedding day was a pretty fast paced day, but Sarah and Aaron were game for some adventure, so we took a quick little tour of downtown Knoxville's downtown outdoor Market, which made for some great photo backdrops. As you can see, Sarah & Aaron, and their entire wedding party had an incredible wedding day! Enjoy!
