Jordan + Ian’s Gatlinburg wedding was full of love, family, and fun! With the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as the perfect setting to top it all off, it wasn’t hard to have an amazing day.
This fun loving couple (and their adorable 3 kids) is from Ohio and found me through instagram – gotta love the power of social media! They had visited Gatlinburg before and loved it, so it seemed like the perfect choice for the location of their wedding. They’ve been together for a long time and it was so great to be a part of this celebration of their family.
This Gatlinburg wedding
had to include wedding photos outside showcasing how gorgeous the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and surrounding area is. I love this area because there’s so much to do around there, for couples and families alike. From exploring the national park, to Dollywood, to restaurants and shopping, the location definitely matches how fun and stunning this couple is!
It’s hard to believe,
but Jordan + Ian had never been professionally photographed. They were amazing! I loved how much Ian loved the camera – nothing better than a groom nailing his portraits!
The involvement their kids had in the wedding was so special. The first looks between them and their parents were so sweet. They got so emotional!
The prep and the ceremony were beautiful, but afterward is when Jordan + Ian’s Gatlinburg wedding really took off. The party was crazy! They had money guns, a rowdy crew, and the wedding party entrances were amazing. Also, they had the best guestbook – a phone that you talk into and leave messages for the couple. So fun!
I have shot weddings in Gatlinburg before, and this one didn’t disappoint. I’d love to get back there again, so let me know if you’re planning a Gatlinburg wedding, and let’s do it!
