January snow Engagement on the Cherohala Skyway

Cherohala Skyway Snow Engagement | Elena and Tyler

Cherohala Skyway snow Engagement

One cute boy caught her eye her freshman year.  She confided in her friend who took matters into her own hands right away -with Elena’s best interest in mind of course.

A few years later while on a hike in the Colorado Rocky Mountains overlooking spectacular views of Nymph Lake and Emerald Lake, Tyler proposed. Her parents were in on it. As Tyler and Elena climbed up a large boulder for the best view of the lake her mom had said that she wanted to take a picture of the two of them with the beautiful backdrop. When Elena turned around Tyler was on one knee asking her to marry him! She may or may not have actually said yes but it was written across her face with her amazing smile that Tyler can bring out in a heart beat.

Elena and Tyler will have a 2018 wedding at Smoky Mountain Wedding and Party Barn in Wears Valley TN.
They knew they wanted to have an outdoor ceremony and reception. Tyler had one request when it came to wedding planning, and that was that there be a barn. When they found The Smoky Mountain Wedding and Party Barn they knew they’d found the perfect place for their wedding! Smoky Mountain Wedding and Party Barn has multiple outdoor areas for an outdoor ceremony.

Elena and Tyler, Thank you for being two amazing and wonderful people with a heart for adventure! you guys are the best!. I’m so happy to have had this opportunity to document this part of your journey together. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both!   Much Love Nelya

After weeks of weather watching and waiting for snow, the 4″ blizzard’ of 2017 came! Most of it melted by noon on Saturday but we found snow on the edge of Cherohala Skyway in Tellico Plains TN and Robbinsville NC! Now, I do not like being cold, but when you tell me about gorgeous mountain light with snow in 16 degrees I think its a brilliant idea! Thanks to these two adventurous hearts, I have a feeling these snow engagement photos were completely worth all the cold fingers and trips back to the jeep to warm up!!
