Elkmont Wedding – Spence Cabin & Appalachian Clubhouse
As you know, we’re suckers for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well as forest weddings. Chris and Morgan’s autumn wedding in Elkmont at Spence Cabin included both of our favorite things, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to share their nuptials with you today!
Morgan and Chris have one of those unforgettable love stories. When they started dating they lived across the country from one another. Then, as their love continued to grow, Chris packed up and left his family, friends, and life in California. He moved across the United States to be with Morgan in Tennessee, and they started their life together as Mr. & Mrs. on October 12, 2017.
And as unique as their love is for each other, Morgan and Chris chose not to have wedding bands. They made their vows to each other, not to wedding rings, and so it was not a part of the ceremony and they do not wear wedding bands.
These two also centered their wedding day around the people who mean the most to them. Morgan’s mother was the matron of honor, and Chris’s parents catered the reception with his father’s specialty he brought all the way to Tennessee from California – slow roasted beef tri-tip.
