Smoky Mountain Elopement – Melanie and Eric

Melanie and Eric – July 23, 2020

Smoky Mountain Elopement

Melanie and Eric joined us for our second Smoky Mountain elopement on July 23rd all the way from Mississippi for a sweet and simple experience. They were married to the roar of thunder and the pitter patter of rain drops. These two are blending a family of 7, and they snuck off this week for some alone time and to make things official. They looked so classy in the traditional black and white. He snuck in a vest covered in fleurs-de-lis to show off his love for the Saints. They had such wonderful personalities, and we really enjoyed spending the afternoon with them!!

From the Bride:

We met at a bar during a night out. The first date was just to dinner at at steak house. He proposed on the beach We chose East Tennessee for our wedding so it would be easy and stress free. We are most looking forward to the pictures of the wedding day.  We love hanging out with friends. We love music. We love being on the water.
