Elizabeth and EJ have a wedding scheduled with us next October and came out for some Smoky Mountain engagement photos! We had so much fun with them, his mom, and their pup, Barkley. We can’t wait to see you again next year!!
Brittany and Tyler brought family and friends to Chapel in the Hollow for a fall mini wedding. They dressed the chapel in champagne and white fabric with our white florals. Her off the shoulder dress was lovely, and he teared up a bit during their first look. Congratulations, Brittany and Tyler!!
From the Bride:
I started a new job when I met Tyler on day 4. He had been working there for years and he chose me out of the group to work with. He made a joke saying I wouldn’t last a week, but jokes on him because I lasted a year! Haha.
Our first date was pretty spur of the moment. We went to a restaurant for dinner one night after work and it was so much fun. I remember I smiled the entire time, he probably thought my face was broken.
Tyler proposed. I actually think I ruined the proposal haha. I would ask him every day, “Is today the day?” as I would hold out my left hand. The answer was always no, but this one morning while I was still laying in bed, I asked the same question. His response was, “Do you want it to be?” I thought he was joking and I didn’t believe he even had a ring. The most honest man i’ve ever met got up, grabbed the ring from his little hiding spot, gave it to me, and asked me to marry him. He had an actual plan to propose, but he didn’t want to lie to me haha.
We decided on East Tennessee for our fall mini wedding because it’s beautiful.
What are we most looking forward to on our wedding day?
Tyler’s response: Having the woman of my dreams and mother of my child become my wife My response: I’m looking forward to spending the day celebrating love and life forever with my best friend. The dinner afterwards sounds pretty exciting too hahaha.
We enjoy playing video games, fishing, bowling, and mostly loving on our son, Bentley. We collect magnets from places we visit, in hopes to collect many many more throughout the years. Our typical date night consists of going out to eat together.
Patricia and Larry joined us for a country boho elopement. They dressed the chapel in white fabric with our white florals and lantern package. These two found love together for a second time, and said their vows outside with gorgeous midday lighting. Congratulations, Larry and Patricia!!
From the Bride:
We married in 1984 and was married for 35 years. Life happens we grew apart divorced in 2019.
Found our way back to each other in 2021 and just knew it was always meant to be. We have jokingly and teased each other about getting married for several months but neither one ever ask in a serious way. I told I was going to ask him and he said that’s not the way it goes, I said it does in this day and time. He said he wanted it to be special. So I booked this venue and he doesn’t know anything about it. 😂😂 yet. I told him he had until September 12, then I would ask.
We are looking forward to getting married in the special atmosphere of East Tennessee. Our first wedding was outside, on September 15, 1984, so it’s a special date. For fun, we love anything outdoors, camping, boating, hiking (not big hikes), beach, road trips to new places, treasure hunting, gardening, enjoy having card night with friends and loving life to the fullest at this stage in our life.
Steve and Jennie joined us for an edgy motorcycle club wedding. They dressed the chapel in burgundy and black with our moody florals and lanterns.

Venue Associates: Ian Parrott and Elizabeth DeCoursey
Venue: Chapel in the Hollow

Dallas and Tyler joined us for a relaxed micro wedding filled with tons of fun! They dressed the chapel in lavender and white with our bohemian florals. She brought bouquets for herself and her bridesmaids. Dallas has to be one of the coolest brides we’ve ever had — she’s an airforce pilot! She and Tyler met in the airforce, and their preacher was retired airforce, too. They had a beer boy to dance down the aisle, locked letters to each other in a box to be opened on their future anniversaries, and had a Modelo toast after the ceremony in honor of her grandfather. Such a fun time — and they’re so cute together that I had a terrible time whittling down the photos to share. Fingers crossed that I can talk them into coming back for a photo shoot in their flight suits! Congratulations, Tyler and Dallas!!

Tyler and I met in the military! He remembers it being back in 2012… But in my mind I didn’t meet him until 2016! We started off as best friends and then started our relationship! We really do get to marry our best friends!! Our first date we just went to an Italian restaurant when Tyler got back from his deployment to Germany. He says that he vividly remembers me wearing a red dress. He now loves it when I wear the color red! Tyler proposed. He had the house all set up with rose pedals all over the floor. When he proposed he was kneeling in a rose pedal heart in our living room! He even used the security cameras to record it al! We picked East Tennessee destination wedding, because we both have visited the area and LOVED it. We thought it was one of the prettiest places we had ever been! We wanted to go somewhere different and special to us! We love spending time together with friends and family! For dates we are always up for new adventures! We are both in the military so we love traveling around together!! 🙂
