On September 13th 2014, Crystal Connelly married Allan Smith on what was absolutely one of the most amazing and beautiful days ever.
Crystal is a Professional Photographer (Check her out!) based out of Florida and Texas. She has shot so many weddings, I knew hers would be a truly unique experience. Not to give too much away before the wedding images are released but wow-not only was it a blast to photograph; Crystal had meticulously put together every single detail imaginable to create a one of a kind celebration of love.
We had talked about how she wanted to ‘Rock the dress’ a few days after the wedding and that she wanted a waterfall.
If my bride wants a waterfall, you bet she is getting the best one there is!
Cummins falls in Cookville TN is the eighth-largest waterfall in Tennessee and one of Travel and Leisure magazine’s top 10 swimming holes in the country. You remember when that wise aunt or uncle used to tell you ‘nothing good is easy?’
3 hours of driving, 3 miles of hiking down to the river only to have to cross the river a few times, climbing over slippy rocks with about $3.5k strapped to your back in equipment, not to mention all the other odds and ends (you know, like a wedding dress and suit) that Mr.Smith hauled down the mountain and across a river! *Wheew!*
So….without further ado…..The story of two wonderful people who fell in love <3
