Cades Cove Elopement
This Cades Cove Elopement is brought to you from Ryan + Jason. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park was the perfect setting for their nuptials. Ryan + Jason are from Louisiana but have traveled through the Smokies on numerous occasions and just fell in love with its natural wonder. They settled on the LeQuire Overlook and Field, which has all of the best things that Cades Cove has to offer: a view of the mountains with a solitary mature tree, which was the perfect altar. Following their elopement ceremony, I traveled with the newly married couple to photograph them on the beautiful Hyatt Lane, the Methodist Church, and Tipton Place. We even caught a little bit of a sunset at the clouds parted ways at sunset.
How did these two meet, you ask? Jason was celebrating his birthday with friends out in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans the same night Ryan was meeting up with a friend for drinks. As Ryan and his friend were catching up, they ran into Jason, whom Ryan’s friend knew. He introduced the two and unknowingly played matchmaker as they decided to join Jason and his friends for the rest of the night. A few dates later, Ryan and Jason had made it official, and they embarked on the next six years together. After countless vacations, one coming-out story and one dog adoption, it was time for Jason and Ryan to tie the knot! And I guess when you get a dog together then the next thing is to live happily ever after together. Right?!
I want to thank this lovely couple for choosing me as their Knoxville elopement photographer. I wish them nothing but the best as they continue their lives together as husbands. #muchlove
