Real Gatlinburg Wedding: Sara and Barker Got Married in The Mountains!

Sara and Barker got Married in the Mountains near Gatlinburg.

When they were married it was a great day for a great couple and their families and friends. We’re excited to share some of the photos of this real mountain wedding here.

Their love story as told by Sarah:
“We met in kindergarten when he had my mom as a teacher, and then when we met and actually started “talking” and liking each other it was in Walmart haha. Our first date was to Riverbend to see Sam Hunt and then to steak and shake and I wanted to kiss him so bad but he didn’t and I got worried.

But we went on another date the next day to El Metate and he did 🙂 he later told me he wanted to respect me and that’s why he waited until the second date<3 🙂 he popped the question in our old apartment when I was completely not expecting it and I was so excited. I laughed and cried all at the same time and I couldn’t stop kissing and hugging him! :)”

Sara’s bouquet was designed by Gaynell at Flowers of Gatlinburg. She’s a real artist with flowers.
