#lifewithteamrickards : weekend getaway in tennessee

Recently, Jason and I had the pleasure of visiting Pigeon Forge, TN, to attend the wedding of some friends of ours, Mark and Jessica Williams!  We were fortunate enough to be able to make a weekend getaway out of it and rented a lovely, cozy little cabin with two other couples.  Check out this adorable place!

The owners had baskets like this with cozy blankets in both living rooms!

They had a checkers table, a pool table, and even an air hockey table in the downstairs living room!

And y’all … the VIEW from our back decks (yes, plural – there were 3 decks!) … mountains as far as you could see!

On Saturday, we got to share with Mark and Jessica one of the most special days of their lives!

Mark works with Jason at Eagles Nest Regeneration Ministry.  There were almost 30 Eagles Nest guests that traveled from Virginia to share the day with Mark and Jessica!  I really enjoyed snapping some quick candids of so many of our Eagles Nest family!  : )

In fact, two young members of our Eagles Nest family caught the bouquet and the garter!

Love this shot of Jessica glancing back at Mark … looking beautiful and happy!


Loved Mark & Jessica’s canvas guest book!

The happy couple… Mr & Mrs Williams!  : )

aaaand thanks to my lovely friend Megan, I was able to go home with a couple shots of me and the hubs with an early morning “mountainscape” in the background!  Yay!  : )

CONGRATULATIONS again, Mark & Jessica!  We had so much fun and are so glad we were able to share your wedding day with you!
