This looks like an awfully nice backdrop for a wedding, right? Well, that’s exactly what it was in October 2019 when Rachel’s brother got married. I got to hang with Rachel’s family during that trip to Tennessee.
I’d already briefly met her family before that, but this was a special trip for the wedding. Rachel’s brother (Mike) held his wedding ceremony in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee.
It was October, so the autumn leaves looked beautiful (as you can see). We stayed in a cabin in Gatlinburg, which is a big mountain resort town and close to the hometown of Dolly Parton (Tennessee’s patron saint).
It was a great trip, and Rachel and I hope to make it back to her home state down South soon, depending on the COVID-19 situation this winter.
