Karis + Stephen: Sweet Chattanooga Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Our dear friends over at Paper Antler sent over this sweet, sweet Tennessee wedding the other day.  We are totally in awe of Karis and Stephen’s unique meeting and we can’t get enough of the beautiful and natural simplicity of their oh-so-happy day!   Read more down below:

Karis is one of seven children, and grew up in Ireland.  Stephen, who is one of three children, grew up in Chicago but has been living in Nairobi, Kenya for the past four years.  Karis + Stephen were introduced through a mutual friend in Kenya, and after dating long distance (very long distance) for the majority of their relationship, and after a proposal atop the summit of Mt. Kenya, they wed in Chattanooga, TN, surrounded by friends and family from all over the world.  Their reception took place at a quaint bed and breakfast, and featured some serious dancing, lawn games, and fireworks across the pond, which were a surprise from Karis to Stephen.

Karis + Stephen exhibit a joy and a love that is contagious.  Their smiles light up a room and it was rare to see either one of them not on the brink of laughter.  We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of their day and we wish them all the best as they continue their journey back to Nairobi, Kenya!

(P.S. If you haven’t heard.. Jonny and Michelle are currently booking weddings around the country for their 2012 Fifty Nifty tour!  They’re aiming to photograph 50 weddings in 50 states during the year… and $1,000 from each wedding will go directly to She Dances, an extraordinary organization working to rescue young girls who have been trafficked and sexually exploited in Honduras.  Seriously, you should book Paper Antler… not only are they extremely talented, but they’re also some sort of crazy awesome). ♥
