The weather predicted storms for the entire day. When I arrived at Arrington Vineyards in the early afternoon, not a drop had fallen yet. We all had our fingers crossed. As Benji + Ayn Marie walked hand in hand to the the ceremony site, the sky let go of a few rain drops. Benji + Ayn Marie's wedding was intimate and timeless. Family surrounded them as they said their vows under a huge, oak tree that provided much needed shade.
They met at their jobs. Benji teaches Wellness and Ayn Marie teaches kindergarten. They both attended the University of Tennessee, but they didn't know each other when they attended. Benji + Ayn Marie love bluegrass music. Of course, Rocky Top was played a few times. The barn was packed with friends and their students' families during their reception.
