Maddie + Derek were introduced by a close friend in college, and immediately hit it off, shortly into dating, Maddie was moving to Nashville to accept a nursing position, and Derek took the leap and moved with her! They chose to get married in the gorgeous Smoky Mountains in Chattanooga, at Howe Farms. It was the most beautiful venue + the sunset over the mountains could not have been more perfect!
This was truly one of the most well-done wedding days which started off very relaxed, everyone was ready early and just enjoying their time with friends and family. Maddie shared a beautiful first look with her dad down the grand staircase, then a first touch and private vows with Derek. The letters they wrote each other were so touching and brought tears to many eyes.
As the guests started arriving they came out to the ceremony location on the back patio to the most gorgeous view of the Smoky Mountains. Maddie + Derek stood next to their closest friends
