2 on the Roof
After catching each other’s eye on a group blind date, where they were with different dates, Jeanna and Cameron began their two year romance. They dated each other during their last years at Covenant College on Lookout Mountain.
Cameron dazzled with his sentimental proposal in January of 2016, and the couple was wed just six months later. On a drizzly day in July, they promised their lives to each other at Cameron’s home church, Lookout Mountain Presbyterian. Jeanna wore a delicate tulle gown with the faintest hint of blush, which was mimicked in her bridesmaids’ gowns and the sumptuous pink garden roses in their bouquets. Cameron donned a charming vintage outfit of slate gray trousers and brown suspenders with a champagne bow tie.
Following the ceremony, family and friends traveled to the fresh, airy and elegantly understated 2 on the Roof in Northshore for the couple’s colorful reception. “It was the perfect taste of Chattanooga for all of our out-of-town guests! The second story views of downtown and the mountains from the wrap-around balconies were great!”
The couple decorated with bright natural tones of white and pink hydrangea and greenery for a touch of color, with string lights and candles to add ambiance. “I loved how the venue didn’t require a lot of decorating. We wanted to preserve the simple beauty of the space,” Jeanna says. “It strikes a good balance of modern and rustic, but it’s great because you can tailor it to whatever you want. The high ceilings and huge windows make it feel spacious and let in a lot of natural light.”
Through all the dancing and delicious grub, Jeanna says what she remembers most is the surreal feeling of appreciation she was struck with as she looked around and saw all of her loved ones in one place. “It was so special. Not only did I get to marry my love, but everyone we loved was there. It was perfect.”
