Elegant Forest Intimate Wedding | Ely’s Mill, Gatlinburg, TN

I was totally blown away by how beautifully Dwone and Tierney put together their little mountain elopement. They thought of every little detail and it 100% showed.

We had their ceremony at Ely’s Mill under the pavilion and then followed a little path that went by the river for their bride and groom portraits. The weather was warm and a little cloudy so the light was stunning and diffused.

It was such a pleasure to work with them and to witness such a beautiful connection between the two of them. I could just tell the whole world melted away when they were with each other. Like they were in their own little elopement bubble.

At the end of their portraits, we left for a little candle-lit reception dinner in downtown Gatlinburg at The Park Grill that was so special and intimate. It definitely was a nice way to incorporate the mountains while also having close family and friends present to celebrate with them.
