Dancing together has been known to spark love connections in movies and in real life, and Austin and Emily are a great example of that. Although the two met at a housewarming party, their reconnection two years later was solidified by their excursions to country two-stepping bars in town. After several successful dates and plenty of dancing, Austin took Emily to the airport to visit family, and asked her to be his girlfriend. To his surprise, Emily said no, but took it back and accepted his proposition a week later. One year down the road, Austin and Emily went hiking, and once Austin again offered a proposal. When he got down on one knee at the top of Lookout Mountain, there was no way Emily could refuse.
Austin and Emily’s Historic Hearn House wedding was a celebration of their joy and love for each other and for their shared belief in God. The ceremony was an intimate backyard affair, with string lights dangling from trees and a romantic red and pink color scheme. Family and friends gathered to celebrate the pair and witness their bond with each other and in their faith. The two washed each other’s feet during the ceremony, a unique religious tradition that represented their servant’s hearts and their desire to follow in Jesus’s footsteps throughout their marriage. They also wrote their own vows, which inspired tears and laughter during the ceremony, and left guests with full hearts and watery eyes.
After sealing their union with a dramatic dip-kiss, which was captured beautifully by Nate Bowman, the couple and their entourage proceeded to party the night away, with plenty of dancing and lots of custom-made donuts.
