High school sweethearts Samantha and Jack were married at Twin Cedar Farms near Maryville at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains. It was the fairytale wedding that Samantha had been dreaming of her whole life.
“It was a fantastic day” says David Payne, Tennessee Wedding Photographer at Dave Payne Photography in Knoxville TN. “It was such a pleasure to share this special moment with such a down to earth and friendly couple. Realizing a dream is what makes what I do so special.”
David was kind enough to share some photos and details about the day and also a sweet story about the couple:
Samantha and Zack’s wedding was held at Twin Cedar Farms in Rockford TN near Maryville at the foot of the Great Smoky Mountains. The day was perfect for photography with the sky being somewhat overcast, and then clearing just as the ceremony ended. The sun shown through on the then married couple. A fairytale for Sam who had dreamed of this day since she was a little girl playing with Ken and Barbie. Her whole life she wanted a wedding with a big puffy dress and a horse-drawn-carriage. Sam and Zack had been dating since they were in High School. Sam was 14 and Zack 16 when they met. Sam had been at a party with friends when Zack arrived delivering a pizza from a local restaurant. The two hit it off when they met, and they had their first kiss a few weeks later while watching the movie “Top Cats” at the house with parents in the next room. Over the next 9 years they frequently would share a McDonald’s vanilla shake, or dine at Applebee’s when Zack could afford it. The two saved their money for years so that Sam could have her dream wedding, and Sam says it was everything she wished for on that special day.
