A Blindfolded First Look & The Sweetest Wedding Day

Raquel and Garrett tied the knot at a gorgeous church in downtown Knoxville and had their reception at Jackson Terminal. They rented a loft in market square for the girls to stay the night in and get ready the morning of the wedding.

As you’ll see below, Raquel and Garrett decided not to do a “typical” first look. Often, when couples decide not to see each other, they will reach around a corner and hold hands, talk through opposite sides of a door, or sometimes they will have blindfold first look where the groom has an eye mask on the whole time.  The latter is what Raquel and Garrett chose to do and it was perfect!
