Sunsphere Wedding Shoot | Knoxville, TN

Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, stayin’ aliiiiiiiii-iiiiii-iiiiii-iiiive….

Thinking of having a theme for your wedding day? This shoot featured 1970s disco in a modern icon, the Sunsphere in Knoxville, TN. It was created for the 1982 World’s Fair and, until this shoot, 1982 was the last time I was in it! I remember my dad took me up in it when I was eight years old. The fireworks started going off and I could barely see them because of the crowd of people. The World’s Fair was a huge event!

Needless to say, I had much better views when I got to return in 2021!

Thanks to Simple Elegance Events for putting everything together and to Sunsphere Events Venue. It truly is “Knoxville’s Most Iconic Event Venue”!


We shot from the eighth (top) floor of the Sunsphere and the views were beautiful.
