In the summer of 2013, Lisa and Dominic contacted us about their 2015 wedding, nearly 2 years away. In November of 2013, Lisa said that their plans had changed, and asked if we would be willing to come for a weekend wedding in Gatlinburg, TN….three months from then….in February of 2014. A slight change of plans. Originally, they were going to wait to have a big wedding until after Dominic returned from his third deployment with the Army. But in the end, they decided they’d rather be married sooner, and have a small and intimate wedding. We’ve never had so much fun at a wedding! We spent the entire weekend with Lisa & Dominic and their 12 guests. The first day we went exploring the woods near their cabin, where a fresh blanket of snow laid for us to play in. We played on zip lines, went down slides, discovered turkey tracks, and even tossed a few snow balls. The next day we witnessed a gorgeous wedding, in the cold winter air, as both Dominic and Lisa shed tears as they said their vows. It was simply beautiful. From there we returned to the cabin we all shared, and had a an amazing meal created by an incredibly talented chef. Toasts were shared, and the night was spent celebrating this beautiful union.
