This is the wedding of Justin and Natalia. The wedding took place at Gatlinburg's Little Log Wedding Chapel which is a tiny chapel on one of Gatlinburg's backroads. Justin and Natalia decided to have a very small and intimate wedding with only 7 of their closest friends and relatives. The couple had been together for a few years and they decided that it was a great time to make their dream of getting married become true.

After the ceremony in the small chapel, the couple headed to the top of a mountain at Hippensteal's Mountain View Inn which has fabulous views of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They had their reception in one of the rooms at the Inn. One long table, food, and family is all this couple needed to have a wonderful time in such a beautiful place.
