Spence Cabin Spring Wedding

We always love going to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for weddings, and Natasha and Dane’s wedding at Spence Cabin in Elkmont was nothing short of a perfect mountain wedding. They got married in May, and Natasha’s boho details perfectly paired with their outdoor ceremony on the bank of the Little River.

Natasha and Dane are big travelers, and they love taking photos, so Elkmont was the perfect place for them to get married. With the babbling river, winding trails, and ancient forest, their Smoky Mountain wedding was full of the most beautiful things found in the national park.

And can we just say how much we LOVED Natasha’s boho style! Her gown was jaw-dropping, and her cascading bouquet was amazing. All of the details seamlessly flowed together and made for a beautiful day.

Congratulations Natasha and Dane!

Spence Cabin

Two of our favorite venues in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are Spence Cabin and the Appalachian Clubhouse. Spence Cabin is perfect for wedding ceremonies and is on the bank of the Little River. The Appalachian Clubhouse is great for receptions. With a quick 2-minute drive between the cabin and the clubhouse, many couples choose to reserve both venues for their wedding day. You can reserve them online at the following links: Spence Cabin, and Appalachian Clubhouse. Located in the Elkmont Historic District of the national park, the cabin was built in 1928 and the clubhouse was built in 1934.
