Spence Cabin Wedding in the Smoky Mountains

Today, we’re taking you all the way back into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for Brittany and Jeyson’s destination mountain wedding at Spence Cabin in Elkmont. One of our favorite venues in the Smokies, Spence Cabin is a pink and green cabin nestled in the woods on the bank of the Little River. From the Elkmont parking lot, you can’t see the cabin tucked away in the forest, but when you find it, you never forget it.

Brittany and Jeyson are high school sweethearts and they traveled from Georgia to Tennessee for their wedding. They’ve been together for more than a decade. When Brittany reached out to us, she said, “We are high school sweethearts. We both had mutual friends and became very close. We both had very similar music taste and that is one way we really connected. Now, 12 years later, we have a 7-year-old daughter and ready to make the forever commitment and I am so beyond excited!”
