Foothills Parkway Fall Wedding

Fall colors, an amazing view, and a gorgeous sunset on the Foothills Parkway. This is how Ashley & Brett celebrated their wedding. She said “the Smoky Mountains are my happy place. As long as we are together in the mountains, that’s all I want.” And that’s exactly what they got!

Ashley and Brett decided they wanted an intimate wedding celebration with their two children. So, they went to the courthouse and got married, and then they met us at the Foothills Parkway for fall wedding pictures. It was a chilly day with constant wind, but the sunset was totally worth it!

With a gorgeous orange and purple glow, Ashley and Brett sat together at the Missing Link portion of the Foothills Parkway and watched the sunset with their children. It couldn’t have been any more beautiful or perfect for this sweet family!
