Holly & Dennis

Spence Cabin Wedding at Elkmont

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!).

Mountainside BrideHolly’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.

Weddings in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Weddings at Spence Cabin, Appalachian Clubhouse, Cades Cove, the Primitive Baptist Church and other areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are gorgeous! Especially in the fall. The leaves and the colors changing in the mountains are amazing! Wedding photography and other professional photography within the national park (bridal portrait sessions, engagement sessions, etc.) requires a special photography permit, and JoPhoto has a commercial use authorization permit to provide professional photography in the park. If you’re interested in getting married in the park, and you’re looking for a wedding photographer who has the required permit to photograph your wedding, contact us!
