Parkside Resort Wedding Pigeon Forge - Kara + Ajay

The first time that I spoke to Kara on the phone, she stressed to me how important it was for her and Ajay to have amazing photos throughout the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and we were more than happy to accommodate that request. You’ll see glimpses of the Elkmont area as well as the beautiful Magnolia Venue and Parkside Resort’s Sky View Lodge and Pavilion through this snapshot of Kara and Ajay’s big day.

This sweet couple found us and traveled all the way from Milwaukee, where they met and dated for 8 years, to get married in the midst of this beautiful mountain backdrop. The two insisted on an intimate wedding with only their closest friends and family, and they wanted a very comfortable and laid back atmosphere. They chose the mountains because of their love for the national park and because of all of their fond memories hiking and exploring the area. Since Kara and Ajay didn’t have a bridal party, we knew it was super important for them to have an abundance of couple’s photos together in a variety of settings but to also let the gorgeous setting speak for itself while creating new memories together, only this time, in a custom-made classic suit, and gorgeous flowing gown.

Despite Ajay’s proposal not going according to plan (as he was supposed pop the question on a romantic trip but instead proposed after the ring delivery was delayed on a random Tuesday night), everything on their wedding day from the weather, to the decor, to the guests was simply perfect. We couldn’t be happier to have been part of this special occasion for such a kind couple, and we hope you enjoy this mountain wedding as much as we did!
