Outdoor Elopements in the Smoky Mountains – Jessica and Ricky

Jessica and Ricky – January 2, 2021

Outdoor Elopements in the Smoky Mountains

Outdoor Elopements in the Smoky Mountains are so much fun! Jessica and Ricky joined us with her grandparents for a sweet ceremony performed by her grandfather–our first ceremony of the new year. She looked gorgeous in her lacy white dress, and his navy suit was very fetching. Together, they warmed up the day. We can’t wait to see the video from Yugen Productions! Congratulations, Jessica and Ricky!

From the Bride:

We met at a Christmas party at the school I work at. I work with Richard’s sister and he came with her to the holiday party to help. We locked eyes and he winked and a year later we dated and got engaged. For the first date, we stayed out way too late laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Ricky proposed at the place we had our 1st date. We chose TN for our elopement because we both love it there. We love our 2 kids, traveling, and doing activities on the water

Outdoor Weddings Near Knoxville – Jessica and Ryan

Jessica and Ryan – December 22, 2020

Outdoor Weddings near Knoxville

If you are looking for outdoor weddings near Knoxville, you are going to love this one!! Jessica and Ryan are Tennessee natives. They live locally in Knoxville — which is a great place to visit while you are in the area!! They brought their families and friends to us today to celebrate big by going small. Jessica’s dress showed off her curves to perfection, and their daughters looked gorgeous in their burgundy bridesmaid dresses. Congratulations Ryan and Jessica!

From the Bride:

We met through work and hit it off on the first date. He proposed. He took me on a carriage ride downtown Nashville. He had the carriage drop us off in front of the train station, and then he popped the question. We chose East Tennessee because we live here and thought it would be perfect. We are most looking forward to sharing our love with our friends and family. For fun, we love going to the Tennessee Titans football games and taking weekend getaways to Asheville, NC or downtown Nashville.

Christmas Micro Wedding – Rebecca and Brandon

Rebecca and Brandon – December 19, 2020

Christmas Micro Wedding

Brandon and Rebecca joined us today for a Christmas micro wedding with some gorgeous holiday overtones. They decorated the chapel up super cute! They incorporated a sand ceremony into their celebration which is a great way to symbolize the joining of two lives. Rebecca looked SOOO gorgeous in her dress, and I love the faux fur wrap — so elegant! Congratulations, Rebecca and Brandon!

From the Bride:

We actually met through old friends. It was funny because we actually didn’t like each other at all when we first met then developed a friendship that turned into love. Our first date was out to dinner. We were both quiet because we were so nervous then eventually got to talking and we soon warmed up.

Brandon proposed. He took me out to a very nice restaurant and in the middle of the meal he asked. I was totally surprised. We are most looking forward to being MARRIED 😍! We chose our date because we both love the Christmas season. 

For fun, we both love going to new restaurants or museums as our usual date.

Winter Elopement – William and Stacy

William and Stacy – December 19, 2020

Winter Elopement

William and Stacy joined us this morning for a super cute winter elopement. She got crafty and set up a gorgeous cake table — I’m loving the minty greens she used!! It was a little chilly, but the scarf she brought added the minty green flair into her ensemble.

From the Bride:

We met online the dating site of Plenty of Fish. For our first date, we went bowling and had drinks and appetizers and had a great time! We are both shy, so it took a little extra “oomfph” to get us to talk, but we had a wonderful time and got to know each other!

William proposed. We were in Savannah, Georgia over fall break. We went out to dinner and then headed back to the hotel to change and get ready to go walk the town. We were out on the hotel balcony just people watching and I went inside for a minute and when I came back out, he had wrapped his arms around me from behind and whispered that he loved me, turned me around and got down on one knee and proposed! There wasn’t hardly any light out on the balcony, just from the street lights, so I could hardly see it happen, but it was still so so special and I loved it!

William’s brother and wife, as well as their grandparents live outside of Knoxville, and we just love going up there to visit. We love to be in the mountains. It’s just a refreshing, peaceful place!

We are most excited about it just being the two of us. We had originally planned to do a small family and close friends only wedding, but we decided to be spontaneous and just elope!

For fun, we like to go out and enjoy dinner together having drinks, maybe going bowling or on a stroll through downtown.
