Smoky Mountain Weddings – Michelle and Scott

Michelle and Scott December 31, 2019

Smoky Mountain Weddings

The last of our 2019 Smoky Mountain Weddings was Michelle and Scott. They brought their children to combine their families as a surprise. The girls were SO excited when they found out!! Michelle looked like a total runway model working that dress on the road, and these two now get to start the new year out as a married couple! Happy New Year and congratulations Michelle and Scott!!

From the Bride:
How we met… Our kids were in the same class together. Scott volunteers at the school where Michelle works. For the first date, we spent the day at the Magic Kingdom. It was Magical. 🙂 We spent a week at the beach together and Scott proposed with a message in a bottle. It was super cute! We had planned a trip to Tennessee for Christmas for our 5 kids. At the last minute, we decided to make the trip even more meaningful. It sounds ridiculous, but the date we chose was really based on the weather. We were hoping for snow. We thought it would be amazing for the kids to be at our wedding and see snow for the fist time. We are very involved with our children and creating memories for them. When we do get time alone, we love to camp, go to the beach, and just relax.

One of the Best Places to get Married in Gatlinburg Tennessee – Mandy and Sean

Sean and Mandy December 21, 2019

Best Places to get Married in Gatlinburg Tennessee

Mandy and Sean brought their friends and family to Chapel in the Hollow – one of the best places to get married in Gatlinburg Tennessee – on December 21, 2019 to celebrate their love for our second wedding of the day. Mandy’s baby bump and the love of her family made her glow brighter than any Christmas light. Her grandpa was a hoot–super sweet, a little quirky, and so much fun to be around! We had beautiful weather and wonderful lighting to capture great memories for them to cherish for years to come, and I hope we get to see photos when the baby comes!!

Mandy’s beautiful DIY bouquet was made with greenery from Hobby Lobby. Do it yourself florals are a great way to save a little money in your wedding budget if you have a creative eye. Hobby Lobby has a great selection that is usually half off. We’ve also found some beautiful and inexpensive options from afloral.com when we put together some of our faux chapel florals. They  have some tutorials to help you make your bouquet extra fabulous. HGTV and Zola also have some neat tutorials. The all greenery look is so elegant and can really elevate your look, and there are lots of photos you can find on pinterest to use for inspiration.

Congratulations Mandy and Sean!!

Gatlinburg Elopement – Rachel and Jason

Rachel and Jason December 21, 2019

Gatlinburg Elopement

Rachel and Jason joined us on the morning of December 21st for our for their Gatlinburg elopement and our first wedding of the day. She looked radiant in her gorgeous asymmetrical one shoulder dress while Jason was stylin’ in his grey suit. They said their vows with just Ian and myself as their witnesses in the woods on the porch of our little mini chapel, and they added a little Christian flair into our interfaith ceremony to make it their own. Congratulations Rachel and Jason!! May you have many happy years together!

From the Bride:
Rachel couldn’t sleep one night and decided to browse the online dating world in the hopes it would scare her enough to just leave it all alone. Unbeknownst to her she has accidentally clicked on Jason’s profile. Jason started messaging her, she looked at his profile and decided to take a chance and talk to him. We talked for four hours that night and several times the next day. It was an instant connection.

We lived two hours away from each other and decided on a meeting point somewhat in the middle. We met at Starbucks for a mid morning coffee to see how things went. This was Rachel’s first “first date” in a very long time and Jason was new to the dating scene as well. Jadon called me as I was driving to the date and said I know you’re nervous, and I know we get along great in conversation…let’s talk while we drive to Starbucks and that way when we get there we can just continue the conversation! He won me over at that moment! Our coffee date went so well it turned into a little shopping (where he tested my knowledge at a sporting goods store😜) and lunch.

Jason proposed. I had the day off work and Jason wanted us to go somewhere we hadn’t been. We drove to Staunton that Wednesday afternoon. It was a beautiful little historic town. He had picked out a restaurant to eat at but we needed to kill some time before it opened. We set out on a walk around the town and discovered some cute shops. We ate a wonderful dinner and decided to re-visit one of the shops to a purse that I liked. On the way back to the car Jason stopped and did a fake “the office” Jim and Pam proposal. I said at least I have the purse as a consolation 😜. We continued walking towards the car and got to the street corner where we were to cross the street to get to the car. I went cross the street and Jason pulled my hand back and said wait a minute. I turned and saw him getting down on one knee and pulling a ring out of his pocket. He asked me to marry him and all I could say in that moment was “you’re kidding me!” He got up and asked me if that was a yes and of course it was!!

We decided on Tennessee for our Gatlinburg elopement because we were looking for a beautiful Mountain View and the area offers the perfect place for our mini-moon after our wedding.

What I look forward to most….I am looking forward to being able to have Jason as my husband, blessed to be called his wife, and to spend the rest of our lives loving each other. Jason says ditto😜😜

We wanted a time where it could be just us and this worked out perfectly. The venue, the timing, the dress, everything just fell right into place. Much like how we met. All in God’s timing.

We enjoy going to the lake, where we enjoy spending time with our family fishing and riding on the pontoon. Jason has introduced me to hunting which I enjoy getting to do with him when time permits. We really enjoy spending time with each other and making the most out of any quality time we have.

Micro Weddings in Tennessee – Emily and David

Emily and David December 20, 2019

Micro Weddings in Tennessee

Emily and David joined us on a gorgeous cloudy December for one of our favorite wintery micro weddings in Tennessee. She brought the cutest faux fur shrug for photos, and they looked fantastic together!! They brought a unity candle for their ceremony and surrounded themselves with their families for their big day. Congratulations Emily and David!!

From the Bride:
We met on Social Media. We are from neighboring counties, and had some mutual friends. Our first date was at Applebee’s in Columbia, TN. I was 5 minutes late, but David was even later. He says I was late, and I say he was late. We both ordered sweet tea to drink, but got unsweet tea. Neither of us would say anything about our drinks until the end of the date, and we still laugh about it. 

David got the ring, and couldn’t wait to propose. So he sent her to the store for some needed grocery items while he romantically decorated their room with rose petals and tea light candles. We decided on Tennessee because we are Tennessee locals! No better place to get married than in our home state. I was most looking forward to finally saying I do and becoming one. We want a simple but memorable day to cherish forever. We were already planning a trip to the mountains close to Christmas, and after the proposal we just thought why not go ahead and get married while we are there. And then the planning began! 

For fun, we just enjoy spending time with each other whether it be shopping, going out to dinner, playing games, deer hunting, or being with our families. We make the most with whatever we are doing.
