Toni and Neal – May 20, 2020
Smoky Mountain Elopements
We’re so excited about all of the Smoky Mountain elopements coming our way over the next few months starting with Toni and Neal. These two joined us for our first wedding since Tennessee has started opening back up. We had a little bit of sprinkling, but it was so lovely and cool. The lighting was beautifully moody and showed off Toni’s gorgeous look! These two are laid back and so much fun!! Congratulations Toni and Neal!
From the Bride:
Neal and I grew up in a small town and had many mutual friends. We first met when we were much younger, and reconnected after I divorced in 2017. We talked for several hours and went to lunch the next day and we were inseparable since our first lunch date. Our first date was very casual and relaxed. We had lunch and talked just like old friends. We were so excited we planned a date for the following week, but couldn’t wait and went on a more formal dinner date the next evening. Neal proposed to me on our back porch on a beautiful evening under the stars.
Choosing to have one of the Smoky Mountain elopements seemed like the way to go since we enjoy spending time in the woods riding our side by side. We found your venue and thought it was perfect for our wedding. I most look forward to celebrating with our children and our parents, and of course to have lots of awesome photos to remember the day. We love to ride our side by side with friends. We have six children all from my previous marriage, but Neal is adopting our three younger babies who are 4 and my three year old twins! So we enjoy family time at our house with the children and our three dogs. We love to cook and spend time together as a family.
