Nevada Falls and Half Dome provided the backdrop for the ceremony which was at Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park in California. The Rev. Autrey Nassar officiated and the couple was surrounded by their parents, the bride’s brother, John Brock of Empire, and Judy Terry of Tennessee.
Amy wore a blue wedding gown made by her mother. The full length gown had a scooped neck, sleeveless bodice of blue bridal satin. The softly gathered skirt was a blue embroidered sheer over a cream satin underskirt. The dress was accented with a cream sheer wrap. She chose a simple, colorful bouquet of flowers.
Following the ceremony, the wedding party attended a breakfast brunch at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley. The couple spent their wedding trip hiking and enjoying Yosemite Park, Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Parks and the surrounding areas.
The couple will live in Chattanooga, where Amy will join the Geology Department as Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga. Kevin will continue working as a Geologist for Mala Geosciences.
The newlywed couple will be honored at a come and go reception from 2 to 4 p.m. July 31, at the Empire Community Center.
