Allison + Chaise’s Smoky Mountain Wedding Film

A gorgeous early-fall wedding film in the Smokey Mountains

Hey there, lovers! Grab your virtual popcorn because I’ve got a story to tell that’s bound to leave you utterly captivated. I had the incredible honor of documenting the heartwarming wedding day of Allison and Chaise amidst the breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains. Picture this: an end-of-September intimate wedding at The Parkside Resort in Pigeon Forge, TN, where love, nature, and celebration merged into magic.

The moment I stepped foot at The Parkside Resort, I knew I was in for a videographers dream location. Nestled in the hills of the Smoky Mountains, the venue was an blend of rustic charm and modern elegance. The air was crisp with the promise of fall, and the leaves were just beginning to cast their enchanting hues, transforming the landscape into a painter’s canvas. The mountains stood tall, as if bearing witness to the love that was about to unfold.

But that’s not all – let me take you on a tour of the venue’s most unique feature. Imagine a cluster of charming cabin houses, seamlessly connected through a central space that doubled as the ceremony and reception area. Yes, you read that right! Allison and Chaise’s wedding was a celebration of togetherness in every sense. Their family and guests were nestled in these cozy cabins, creating an intimate atmosphere that felt like one big, joyous family reunion.

As the sun began its descent, casting a warm golden glow, the ceremony commenced. Against the backdrop of the majestic mountains, Allison and Chaise exchanged vows that tugged at heartstrings and brought tears of joy to everyone present. The central space, adorned with delicate decor and natural elements, added an air of enchantment to the day.
