Elopement in the Mountains – Kayla and Tyler

Kayla and Tyler – April 23, 2021

Elopement in the Mountains

Kayla and Tyler brought all the cuteness today at their elopement in the mountains! I don’t think they took a single bad picture together — they get an A+++ in chemistry! He had a hard time keeping the smile away when his eyes landed on her. They chose the blush and white fabric with our white florals to dress the chapel, and she brought a dried flower bouquet that had soft, lovely colors. Her little pops of Tiffany blue looked great agains a spring nature backdrop. We had so much fun spending time with these two and getting to focus on them for some epic wedding pictures. Congratulations, Kayla and Tyler!

From the Bride: 

We met through mutual friends. For the first date, we spent a quiet evening together at a cabin next to the white river. We had a few drinks and got to know each other and immediately hit it off.  Tyler proposed at the place we had our first date. We chose East Tennessee because of the beautiful views and it’s a place we’ve both always wanted to visit. We’re most looking forward to getting to spend the rest of our lives with the person we’ve always waited for. We both enjoy the outdoors and being in nature. We like to spend time with our families and friends. The typical date night is trying new places to eat or going out with friends and spending the weekend at places we enjoy.

    Morning Elopement – Elise and Alex

    Elise and Alex – April 22, 2021

    Morning Elopement

    Elise and Alex joined us for a morning elopement and got that fun, glowy lighting. They used the champagne fabric with our blush and marsala florals, and she made the bouquet to match. This gorgeous dress came from an Etsy store, and they did a fantastic job — the back was especially stunning. Congratulations, Elise and Alex!!

    From the Bride:

    We had mutual friends and had known of each other for a while due to living in a small town before we met. For the first date, we went to a haunted house! He proposed to me on the ridge in front of all of our friends! We had been riding four wheelers day so we were covered in mud lol WV love story at its finest. I am in my last semester of nursing school & we have 2 kids so honestly we just didn’t have time to plan a wedding! Also I loved the idea of it being just me & him so we decided to elope! I’m most looking forward to him seeing me in my dress for the first time! For fun, we do anything outdoors! Fishing, riding four wheelers, hunting. We do it all!

      First Responder Wedding – Jenna and Adam

      Jenna and Adam – April 21, 2021

      First Responder Wedding

      Rain didn’t stop Jenna and Adam’s first responder wedding — and her smile was bright enough to warm even this chilly day. He’s a police officer, and she is a paramedic. They brought this into their details with touches of navy — even in the rings! They went all out and had a bubble dude instead of a flower girl, and he did he job wonderfully. Jenna used our navy and white fabrics but brought her own ombre pink florals — and she has generously gifted them to the chapel for future brides to use!! (More pics of these later.) She brought pink into her look by having the underlayment of her dress dyed pink and leaving the beautiful ivory lace on top–epic gorgeousness. Congratulations, Jenna and Adam!! We’re so glad you chose us for your big day!

       

      From the Bride:

      Adam is a Police Officer, and I am a Paramedic. We worked side by side for many years in the same borough. We had both taken an interest in one another but not at the right times in each other’s lives. A few short years later the interest had sparked again after reuniting on an emergency call. Since then we knew our lives were meant to be together.

      We are both huge fans of Halloween. For the first date, we went to Field of Screams, a local scream park, and enjoyed four haunted adventures together.

      Adam proposed to me at Hickory Run State Park in White Haven, Pa, in front of the beautiful snow covered Hawk Falls.

      Jenna has been visiting Pigeon Forge since she was born. Tennessee is our second home. We always feel so welcomed when we arrive here and decided we couldn’t choose anywhere else.

      I’m most looking forward to sharing our incredibly special moment with our best friends and family and marrying the man my heart belongs too

      We chose this date because he asked me “stay with me please” on this day. His way of saying be my girlfriend.

      We love to go camping and enjoy escape rooms.
      We have a herd of eight guinea pigs, one dog, one fish, two frogs plus four kids amongst us. 🤣

      Military Micro Wedding – Eileena and Adrien

      Eileena and Adrien – April 17, 2021

      Military Micro Wedding

      Eileena and Adrien brought their families to us to celebrate their relationship in a military micro wedding. She styled everything beautifully with a little help from Diana with Custom Love and our new chapel helper, Elizabeth. The look on his face when he first saw her was super sweet. Eileena looked like a fairy princess in her gorgeous dress so it was a must to use our new-ish fairytale creek spot–you are going to love these!! They also brought some photo smoke bombs to let us get some extra fun images. (You can see Diana working hard with the smoke bombs in the background of the closeup, lol. Working that magic!) As always, we can’t wait to see the video from Austin with Yugen Productions! Congratulations, Eileena and Adrien!!

        Spring Tennessee Vow Renewal – Penny and Billy

        Penny and Billy – April 16, 2021

        Spring Tennessee Vow Renewal

        You may remember Brooklyn and Bailey’s elopement from 2019 — she is the cover girl for our wedding e-magazine. She told her mother about our little place which led to Penny and Billy choosing Chapel in the Hollow for their 10 year spring Tennessee vow renewal! We are so excited to be part of such a big day! Penny’s sweet, southern style looked amazing against the spring forest backdrop. Congratulations, Penny and Billy!

        From the Bride:

        I was working at a local barber shop in our home town of Hamilton, AL cutting hair, and he came in for a hair cut. It was pretty much love at first sight. He came in each week for a cut or shampoo or something just to have a reason to talk to me. We hit it off and started hanging out and dating. Billy had two boys, Camron and Clay. I had two children as well, Brooklyn and Austin. We have been in love ever since. We later had a daughter together, Chloe Zaine. We have been through so much in the past 10 years. We almost divorced 2 times, but God saw fit to bring us back together. Through it all, our love has only gotten stronger. We have endured beautiful happy moments like the birth of Chloe and our three grand children. But, we have also endured lots of heartache with the lost of Clay, my father, and my step father. Through all of the heartache, tears, and laughter, we have found a way to remain strong, and we are stronger today than we have ever been. Our love has grown for that reason.

        For the proposal, I was working. He and Clay picked me up from work, and Clay said, “Pen Pen” (what he called me ) “Daddy didn’t buy you a ring today.” As soon as he said it, Billy looked at me and said, “Well, will you marry me?” It was the sweetest ever not what he had in mind but ended up being the best proposal I could of ever asked for.
