Swinging in Chattanooga

THE STORY:

Katie and Nathan had a swinging wedding - with swing dancing, that is.  Nathan is an alumnus of Vanderbilt University and it is a tradition in his fraternity that members learn how to swing dance.  So, forget the chicken dance, or the cha-cha slide - at this wedding, Big Band music was playing and the ladies were getting twirled, tossed, and dipped!

After getting married at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Katie and Nathan picked a wonderful venue for their reception, the Bessie Smith Cultural Center.  It provided the perfect spot for a wedding in an urban setting - and afterwards, the Walnut Street Bridge was a wonderfully romantic place for bridal portraits.
