The country music singer Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland recently tied the knot in a small chapel in the Great Smoky Mountains
of Tennessee. We’re still unsure of where in the Smokies the wedding took place but we’re certain the wedding was a beautiful ceremony in our Smoky Mountains
! Nettles married longtime boyfriend Justin Miller and wore Alexander McQueen down the aisle. Guests included Nettles’ bandmate Kristian Bush. The intimate wedding was held at sunset in a small chapel.
For all you Twi-hards out there who might be getting married in the near future you may be excited to hear the great news about Bella’s wedding dress in Breaking Dawn. Her wedding gown can easily be your wedding gown as well! Alfred Angelo has created an official replica of the beautiful long-sleeved gown Bella wears to marry Edward. The best part? The dress sells for $799! A designer style dress for a portion of the price.
The dress Kristen Stewart wears in the movie is a Carolina Herrera designed dress for the much-anticipated wedding scene. But the replica boasts “a dramatic plunging cut-out illusion back detailed with a soft Chantilly-inspired lace appliqué trim and full-length lace trimmed sleeves, self-fabric-covered buttons and a Chapel train,” according to a press release.
The gowns, available in sizes 0 to 30W, will be available in Alfred Angelo Signature Stores and independent retailers worldwide.

Plan Your Trip to Pigeon Forge Today!
Back on the radar that is, Bell Island, a project that has been long delayed is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2013!
After many delayed and cancelled opening dates the Belle Island property is now in new hands! Darby Campbell and Bob McManus, partners in LeConte Village LLC., purchased the property from Regions Bank for $10 million dollars Monday afternoon. The developers got the property for a deal since the original investors had already put $80 million dollars into the property.
Campbell and McManus plan to open “The Island at Pigeon Forge” in Spring 2013. They will start gathering entertainment and retail businesses to occupy the property. One proposed highlight of the new development would be a 200-foot skywheel with heated, cooled cars.
One thing that will not be a part of the new Island at Pigeon Forge will be the Debbie Reynolds museum. They plan to tear down the building that was originally built for this museum to build a new road. After the first Bell Island bankruptcy the actress auctioned off much of the memorabilia that was planned to go in the museum.
The Great Smoky Mountains were reported as one of the Top 10 best Holiday Light Displays in the U.S. by Mainstreet.com
. They report the “Great Smoky Mountains are a national treasure in and of themselves, but when the surrounding areas light up their towns for their Winterfest celebrations, the region is even more magical. Pigeon Forge
lights up its city with over 5 million holiday lights, bringing hundreds of thousands of visitors.” We couldn’t agree more! The Smokies and Pigeon Forge are definitely a magical place to be during the holidays and we hope each of you can join us for this Winterfest season
