fireworks and mountain weddings

I’ve been to a lot of weddings, but this is my first corgi themed wedding and I kind of hope it isn’t my last.  The fourth of July has become kind of a road trip holiday for us and we’ve pretty much had the knack of landing in a different place every year.  We were pretty ecstatic when we saw that Jamie, my cousin, sent out her invitations saying that she would getting married in Cades Cove, in the Smokey Mountain National park, and it is probably one of the prettiest places I’ve ever seen!  To top it off, Jamie was a really beautiful bride and I am so excited for them!

Tennessee is usually like the rest of the south in July: oppressively hot.  The announcement said to dress light because the church was built in the early 1900s and didn’t have electricity.  Miraculously, after a week of weather in the 90s, it was literally in the 60s the whole day.  I decided mountain weddings are the best!

Also, their wedding reception totally had a grits bar and that kind of deserves a paragraph of its own.
