Simple Micro Wedding – Amanda and Andy

Amanda and Andy – May 7, 2022

Simple Micro Wedding

Amanda and Andy got a gorgeously moody morning for their simple micro wedding. They dressed the chapel in white fabric with white florals, and her beaded dress was amazing. He looked extra dapper in his black suit. We were able to get some great misty mountain photos thanks to the drizzly day. Congratulations, Andy and Amanda!
From the Bride:
We met in the summer of 2015 at a disc golf course. My boyfriend (at the time) and I joined up with Andy and his friends to finish our round of golf. Over the next two years we became good friends as we found it very easy to talk to one another and we had a lot in common. After my daughter, Kylee, was born her dad and I decided to go our separate ways. On May 4th, 2018 we officially started dating. 
On our first date we went to a local Mexican restaurant and then afterwords he took me to the beach where we took a walk on the boardwalk and talked. Andy proposed to me. It was our three year anniversary (May 4th, 2021) and he took me to a really nice restaurant. When we got back home he pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him. It was already known between the two of us that we would be getting married but, it was official now.
We knew we wanted an outside wedding and we knew we wanted to keep it small and simple. I searched around for a beach wedding initially because we live so close to the beach (literally minutes) but, nothing really stood out to what I was envisioning. I then mentioned to Andy that my sister got married fifteen years ago in Gatlinburg, TN and it was simple and nice. We have been wanting to visit Tennessee again so, we decided to kill two birds with one stone. I began searching and I came across The Chapel in the Hollow and it was perfect all the way around and it fit our budget. I showed it to Andy and he agreed. We wanted a date that would be easy to remember. Since our anniversary is on May 4th we were going to set the date for that day. However, to ensure our family would be able to come we decided on a weekend date. My favorite number is 7 so, it just fit that our wedding day be May 7th.
One of the many things Andy and I have in common is neither one of us like attention on ourselves. So, to be honest, we are both looking forward to the ceremony being over with (lol). We love playing disc golf together and we try to get out to play whenever we can. We enjoy going to the beach, fishing, trying new restaurants (we love food) and going to Busch Gardens-Williamsburg. We like to be active and take my daughter along with us whenever/wherever we can. We love to give her life experiences.

    Stormy Spring Micro Wedding – Mikayla and Riley

    Mikayla and Riley – May 6, 2022

    Stormy Spring Micro Wedding

    Mikayla and Riley joined us for their stormy spring micro wedding. I won’t lie. The weather was pretty icky for a while, but it thankfully calmed down shortly before they arrived leaving us with just a few scattered drops here and there. They dressed the chapel in sand fabric with our blush and marsala florals. She looked elegant in her flowy dress, and they looked oh so happy together. Congratulations, Mikayla and Riley!
    From the Bride:
    We both went to the same high school where we went together to two homecomings. We had some mutual friends that we talked to. Ever since meeting we always kept in contact and are now getting married. Riley proposed on the top of a hill in our cattle pasture with one of the prettiest views with all the cattle around us. We live on the family farm so it was appropriate because I love the location and the cattle. We didn’t want anything big or fancy but I didn’t want my dad not to walk me down the aisle so this was the best choice for us. For fun, we collect animals since we live on a family farm. We like to ride side by sides and go on dates to our local Mexican restaurant. Typically a date night is getting Mexican and going to the local farm stores. Lol!

      May Micro Wedding

      Maci and Trent joined us for a gorgeous May micro wedding in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. They dressed the chapel in blush and champagne with our new blush and bashful florals. She looked so gorgeous in her Essence of Australia dress with elegant hair and makeup by Southern Sirens. We were on a bit of a time constraint, but we were still able to have a beautiful ceremony and get some great couple photos of the two of them that they can look back on for the rest of their lives together. Congratulations, Maci and Trent!!
      From the Bride:
      We met through mutual friends and love music. The first date had food, drinks, and lots of laughs! Trent proposed at home with me and Zoe there. We love the mountains and we are excited about the entire experience. Cinco de mayo! We will always remember.

        Dark and Sultry Spring Elopement – Amanda and Matt

        Amanda and Matt – May 3, 2022

        Dark and Sultry Spring Elopement

        Amanda and Matt joined us for a dark and sultry spring elopement. They dressed the chapel in blush fabric with our moody florals. She was wearing a gorgeous black dress with lace sleeves, and he was casual chic in jeans and a dress shirt. They looked so cute!! The pollen count was high here today, but it made it look like fairy dust in some of the photos! Congratulations, Amanda and Matt!!
        From the Bride:
        I met him at my old place of employment in 2015 and we reconnected in 2017 when he asked me to do an art commission. Our first date was very awkward. He recently had a prosthetic eye put in and I picked a movie where the guy lost an eye. Matt proposed in January on a piece of plywood that his kids unveiled. Sprayed in John Deere Green, per the song. We wanted to go to Tennessee in 2020 then the pandemic hit, so we decided to finally go there to get married. We are looking forward to the whole experience, just Matt and I, laid back and by ourselves. For fun we collect dogs. lol (3) We go to car shows, work on remodeling our house, love to watch movies and go out to eat.

          Personalized Micro Wedding – Detra and Luke

          Detra and Luke – April 30, 2022

          Personalized Micro Wedding

          Detra and Luke joined us today for a micro wedding with lots of personalized style. They dressed the chapel in champagne and white then brought their own lovely boho florals and a few extras that looked fabulous! These two were sweet and fun, and they looked amazing! Congratulations, Detra and Luke!
          From the Bride:
          Detra is originally from Oklahoma and Luke is from Indiana and met in Louisville Kentucky in December 2019. Detra moved to Louisville after living in Alaska to be close to her sister and family. Luke and Detra met via online dating and planned to meet Christmas day after spending time with their families. It was a couple days before Christmas and Luke couldn’t wait any longer. He had just got back into town from working and told Detra he wanted to meet her tonight if she was available. She said yes and greeted him with a big smile at the door. Their first night out was New Years Eve and with a kiss started 2020 together as one.
          Our first date was at Luke’s favorite Mexican restaurant. We had great conversation and found out we had similar family backgrounds, and we just hit it off from there. We shared many laughs and flirty smiles that night. And found our mutual love of margaritas and chips and salsa. Luke proposed May 27th 2021. Luke told me he had picked out a ring with his brother about a week before, he told me that it could be 3 to 4 weeks to get it back from the jeweler. We were planning a weekend getaway to Indianapolis the first week of June so I was thinking he would propose then. He proved me wrong and proposed one night before we went out for date night. I was totally surprised and he even pulled off secretly filming it on his phone. We celebrated afterwards at our favorite Mexican restaurant with dinner and margaritas!
          The Smoky Mountains have been on my travel bucket list for years, I never would have imagined that I would be getting married there. Growing up, Luke’s family regularly vacationed to Gatlinburg so it has sentimental value for both of us. We are looking forward to bringing our families together, celebrating and creating a memorable day for everyone. 
          Luke and I both enjoy traveling, trying different restaurants and cuisine. We also love to get outside and enjoy drinks by the pool and go hiking together.
