A moment of prayer during the small church ceremony.

Fatima and Fernando are both from Mexico and decided to elope as they were visiting Fatima's mother and father who lived in Pigeon Forge. Fatima's parents had been together for many years but never married and decided to just have one ceremony for both couples.

In the spur of the moment, they called the officiant and me to perform the ceremony and photograph their beautiful elopement. It was a unique elopement with two couples instead of one but it made for wonderful memories for this family.
