Hannah + Edward decided to put their love and marriage first by choosing to let go of their original wedding plans and celebrate with a beautiful intimate elopement at Tennessee Tiny Weddings. Keep reading to hear their story and check out the sweet details of this beautiful intimate elopement filmed by Autumn Bailey Shrader with ABN Film.
Here is a little bit about their story in Hannah’s words:
“We have all lost something during this COVID-19 pandemic, and one thing that Edward and I lost is our May 10th wedding plans. We had been planning and dreaming of that day for months, but we said throughout our whole relationship that God’s plans are better than ours, and that came true on March 28th when I got to marry my best friend 44 days earlier than planned. It was the most perfect and loving day surrounded by our parents and Edward’s brother at TN Tiny Weddings, and though we missed being able to celebrate with family and friends, we are grateful for this extra time together as husband and wife and are enjoying our “quaran-moon”! #LoveCantBeCancelled”
From Autumn with ABN Film:
Both Hannah & Edward decided last-minute that they wanted a videographer but had pushed their original wedding date of May 10th forward because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since I was a last-minute hire (just two days before the big day), I wasn’t able to get to know Hannah & Edward as much as I would have liked beforehand. However, I can say with full confidence that they were so relaxed, kind, and understanding from the beginning to the end, even with all that’s going on now!
Hannah’s parents drove down from Minnesota just two days before the wedding and were staying in an AirBnB in Nashville with her. Edward’s parents, along with his brother, came up from Lewisburg, TN. Hannah’s brother wasn’t able to make the drive down with her parents, but we know he was there in spirit! At Tennessee Tiny Weddings, there was so much joy and love surrounding the two of them, and I know they are so happy they decided to elope!
While Edward’s job had halted production, and Hannah continued her schoolwork online, Hannah said, “We decided our honeymoon phase will be in phases, ha! I’ll be done with school in a few days and Edward will hopefully be back to work soon, so we’re enjoying this little time off together! I’ve had a hard time focusing on my schoolwork with the whole pandemic PLUS being a newlywed, but the idea of receiving all of our pictures & our video kept my focus in gear!”
It was so precious to see Edward’s big smile each time the photographer and I asked him to give his wife a kiss! I know most grooms I’ve worked with tend to be a little camera-shy, but Edward knew exactly what he was doing and was always ready for the next pose! Hannah looked like a queen in her wedding dress and the best part? It had pockets! The way the wind blew against her during her photo shoot, it was like something you would see in a movie- dramatic and stunning! I have since enjoyed getting to know them during the film-editing process and keeping them updated on how soon they would be getting to watch their film. Each time I gave Hannah an update, I could tell she was getting more and more excited, ha! Everything went so perfect and smooth, and I know they are having fun reliving the one of the most special days of their lives!
