This is the wedding of Jenna and Joel, a dear couple who got married at their home church in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Joel and Jenna have been together for over 8 years and have a beautiful daughter named Bella. Joel is from Honduras and Jenna was born and raised in Tennessee.

They met and fell in love in high school. Their dream of getting married finally became true and they celebrated with immediate family and friends only in a very intimate small wedding. The room was filled with so many emotions from both families. You could tell that everyone there had waited to share this special moment with them for a long time. Even though Jenna speaks fluent Spanish, the wedding ceremony was hosted by the church's pastors in both English and Spanish so that everyone present could understand. It was quite a beautiful experience.
