Vintage Micro Wedding – TaLena and Parker

Vintage Micro Wedding

TaLena and Parker – May 29, 2024

TaLena and Parker celebrated their love with a beautiful vintage micro wedding this May at Chapel in the Hollow, perfectly nestled in the scenic backdrop of East Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains. The chapel was adorned in dusty sage and peach fabric, setting a soft, romantic tone enhanced by our wildflower florals.
The morning was overcast, casting a gentle light that added to the intimate and serene atmosphere of their special day. TaLena looked stunning in a cap sleeve dress that exuded Bridgerton elegance, paired with floral heels that perfectly matched the day’s theme. Parker complemented her look with light tan pants, a white dress shirt, a tan vest, and a wildflower pocket boutonniere that tied his ensemble into the floral decor.
Her mom and sister played significant roles, helping TaLena get ready and adding a familial warmth to the preparations. Her mom had the honor of walking her down the aisle, a moment filled with emotion and love. Adding to the family-centered ceremony, TaLena’s uncle proudly performed the wedding, making the occasion even more meaningful. Her sister and Parker’s friend stood up with them as their wedding party, with her sister carrying a flower basket that mirrored the chapel’s florals.
While Parker was visibly nervous before the ceremony, TaLena radiated excitement, their emotions painting a complete picture of the anticipation and joy that comes with such a meaningful commitment.
TaLena and Parker’s wedding was not just a celebration of their union but a perfect blend of vintage charm and natural beauty, marking the beginning of their new life together.
Congratulations, TaLena and Parker! May your journey be as beautiful and filled with love as your wedding day.
From the Bride: 
Finding Parker on Facebook Dating was like spotting someone across the room at a concert and realizing they’re singing your favorite song too. It was an instant connection, like the universe conspired to bring us together. Our mutual passions and jokes created an immediate bond, and it felt like we had known each other for ages. The ease and comfort of our interactions made it clear that we were on the same wavelength.

We decided on Ruby Tuesday’s for dinner for our first date, hoping for a casual yet enjoyable meal. Little did we know, it would become a story we’d recount with laughter for years to come. From the salad bar not having ranch (GASP) to the card reader malfunction, every mishap seemed to add to the charm of the evening.

Despite the less than stellar dining experience, we didn’t let it dampen our spirits. Instead, not wanting our time together to end, we decided to take a stroll at the local park. This provided the perfect backdrop for our budding romance. Amidst the laughter and lighthearted banter, we discovered shared interests and dreams.

Looking back, our “typical” first date may not have been picture-perfect, but it was undeniably memorable. It showed us that even in the midst of unexpected hiccups, what truly matters is the bond we share and the laughter we create together. And as we continue to walk hand in hand through life’s ups and downs, that’s something we’ll always cherish.

What I anticipate above all is the moment I stand at the altar, gazing into the eyes of not just my partner, but my best friend. It’s the culmination of countless shared moments, inside jokes, and unwavering support—a celebration of the bond we’ve nurtured and cherished.

We combined our birthdays. His is the 16th and mine is the 13th. So we picked May 29th because we wanted the trees to get some more green on them haha.

First and foremost, our furbabies hold a special place in our hearts, and any activity involving them is an instant joy (minus having to chase Dottie around the neighborhood). From playful romps in the park to cozy cuddle sessions on the couch, their presence adds an extra layer of warmth and happiness to our lives.

But our fun doesn’t stop there. We’re avid documentary enthusiasts, always on the lookout for the next intriguing story or fascinating topic to dive into; whether it’s unraveling the mysteries of the universe or exploring the depths of human nature.

And when we’re craving a change of scenery, we hop in the car and drive. Drifting along tranquil waters, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, we find peace and serenity in each other’s company.
