Jordan and Tim got married with us in 2019, and they brought their little family to us today for some spring family photos! They braved the chill of the morning with their kiddos, and I had so much fun catching up! We can’t wait to have them back again!
Casey and Chad joined us for an early spring mini wedding in the Smoky Mountains. They dressed the chapel with sand and peach fabric paired with our blush and bashful florals and lantern package. Her lattice styled dress was lovely, and he looked stylish in his navy suit. Congratulations, Casey and Chad!
From the Bride:
How we originally met, he was a substitute teacher at my school when he was in college and I was in high school. When I was working as a nurse at one of the facilities in our area he worked the same shifts as me. The unit I worked on was right by the ambulance entrance so he would always come in and speak to me in passing. We both ended up getting divorced a few years later and ended up finding each other again on facebook and began talking once we realized we were both single, and we have been together since. For our first date we went to lunch at Chick-fil-a, nothing special.
Chad proposed. I said I did not want it to be anything big or to be proposed to on a holiday. He brought the ring to me the Friday before Mother’s Day. He had been mowing the yard and I was cooking lunch. I said I didn’t want anything over the top and for it to be a complete surprise and random time, and he delivered. We had planned to go out that night for a date night for Mother’s Day before he left for a golf trip to Arizona.
I know a woman that was married at Chapel in the Hollow and saw some pictures, and I absolutely loved them and thought they were so stunning. I ran across some of the pictures on Pinterest, found the website, and when I saw her pictures on the website I knew this would be the place I got married. I wanted to get married at Chapel in the Hollow before I was even planning on getting married haha. We decided on the date, March 18th, because my maternal grandparents were married on this date. Of course having a wedding with our family there is something I cannot wait for, and just finally being married is at the top of my list. But I am so happy to get to experience it in such a beautiful venue, and get to showcase these pictures in our home for everyone to see.
Jess and Hunter joined us for a super secret March vow renewal. They dressed the chapel in sand and raspberry fabric with our moody florals. She was dressed in a gauzy gorgeous concoction, and he was enamored. Congratulations, Jess and Hunter!!
From the Bride and Groom:
We met in our teen years and through Jessica’s brother. Then being reunited years later. Our first date was to Waffle House then Mexican. Hunter proposed during an ice bucket challenge. Coldest time ever! We had decided on an East Tennessee wedding and after looking at venues and seeing nothing that suited us, we stumbled across the Chapel in the Hollow online and both fell in love with the venue.
I am looking forward to seeing his face! We were married to each other before. Our first time getting married was in a court room, I was an hour late. Now the second time we got married secretly in our friends bar. Our family still doesn’t even know. They still think we are divorced from each other. We decided to have our vow renewal on the date our divorce was finalized. Our original date for our first marriage was 11/14/2014, then remarried on 11/14/2022. This is show yes you can be broken but you can rebuild and truly come back stronger than before. For fun, Mexican is for our date nights. We both love to ride the motorcycle and travel to new places. Spend time with our boys and watch them grow.
Sarah and Tyler joined us for March mini wedding. They dressed the chapel in blush and white with our blush and bashful florals. They were the first to use our new getting ready suite — more to come on that soon. She looked gorgeous in her sleeveless dress and long veil, and he was extra dapper in the black suit. This local couple was super sweet and so much fun — they even brought pups for us to love on!! Congratulations, Sarah and Tyler!!
From the Bride:
We meet in high school, 6 years ago. The first date was with his parents to a hockey game. The actual first date, just us, was Wendy’s. Tyler proposed at Sunrise on a beach in SC, with his family taking family photos. I am looking forward to the feeling, after the kiss and being official. Tyler is just looking forward to being married. For fun, we like to go to the arcade or go swimming in the river.

From the Bride:
We met when we were 16 years old, we always had a crush on one another. Our best friends were brother and sister, so we crossed paths many of times and always hung out, & we did have a moment but we were young so it didn’t go any where, years later here we are! Our first date was like we never had any time apart, we instantly picked up where we left off and couldn’t be separated afterwards. Randy proposed to me, he rented a beautiful cabin in Elijay, GA & planned to ask me in the field of flowers where you pick your own, unfortunately they weren’t in season when we were there, so he improvised and used our daughters chalk and wrote on the driveway of our cabin will you marry me in a big heart.
We decided on an East Tennessee wedding because we absolutely LOVE Tennessee. It’s basically our second home. Several times a year we vacation here and we hope to one day buy a home here and start a life in the mountains of TN. I am looking forward to marrying my best friend one month, exactly, after our dating anniversary.
We our business owners, we own our own HVAC & Home Repair business so it does take up a lot of our time but it’s ours and it’s something we have built from ground up with one another. When we aren’t working, we our traveling with our children, hoping to show them how beautiful it is outside of where we reside, there’s so much to see and do! We just love giving our children what we weren’t able to have growing up.
