Rebecca and Adam love the outdoors and wanted their wedding to reflect their laid-back style. While Adam was biking on Lookout Mountain one day, he stumbled upon Boettcher Mansion. "I loved the idea of getting married at the top of a mountain because Adam had proposed to me on a mountaintop during a hike," says Rebecca.

After an outdoor ceremony held on the patio, the couple and their guests moved inside the mansion, where, in lieu of a first dance, Rebecca and Adam dedicated Ray LaMontagne's "You Are the Best Thing" to each other. The couple's friend Heather Luttrell and her father, along with friends from local band Oakhurst, performed bluegrass music. "We're not big dancers, but there was some spontaneous dancing that took place!" says Rebecca. "At the end of the night, I remember looking at everyone laughing and enjoying themselves—exactly what we wanted."
