If you love the Great Smoky Mountains, this one’s for you! Dennis and Holly’s fall wedding at Spence Cabin in the historic Elkmont district of the national park and reception at the Appalachian Clubhouse was full of trees, boulders, and some stunning shots of the newlyweds in the Little River! Plus, our associate photographer, Erin, and second shooter, Clint, photographed this Tennessee mountain wedding!
Holly and Dennis first met while hiking on the Appalachian Trail (Charlies Bunion trail) in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He proposed to her on a canoe trip, and their Tennessee mountain wedding could’t have been any more perfect! Dennis and other family members dressed in 1920s prohibition era style, and the couple even rode off in an old antique car. Don’t miss the vintage group shot with the car below (Erin is the master of assembling group shots!).
Holly’s wedding gown from Wedding Wonderland had a gorgeous lace overlay that looked like a waterfall of leaves! Her wedding bouquet and floral arrangements were by Lisa Foster Floral Design, hair and makeup was by Southern Belle Beauty, and Margaret from Ruffles & Rouge Events was their wedding coordinator. Linens were from The White Table, and catering was by Miss Lily’s Catering.
