From the bride Breyna:
We did things a little differently than normal and made our rehearsal dinner more like our reception. We invited everyone over to Alexander’s parent’s home and celebrated outside under string lights as the sun went down.  Early the next morning, we were married in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where we first fell in love. Alexander’s dad married us while we were surrounded by our immediate family and breathtaking views.

Our favorite things to do in the Smokies are taking hikes and having picnics.  So that’s exactly what we did after our ceremony – we had a picnic reception. We had our favorite spread of snacks – cheeses, fruits, bread, honey, and of course, wedding cake. Won’t that attract bears, you say? Why yes… in fact it does!
