I'm originally from upstate New York but have lived in Florida for the last 11 years and my FH is born and raised in FL. My FH and I met out at a bar one night and have been inseparable ever since. I miss having the changing seasons (fall is my favorite time of the year) so that was my big deciding factor on when and where to get married. We Chose The great Smoky Mountains to capture the cool crisp air, changing leaves and as a bonus its a half way point for both families (all of his are in GA/FL and mine are all in NY/VT/NH).
