Through the process of photographing their engagement session last fall (click here to see highlights from their session!), I got to know the bride and groom many months before their wedding.

Their wedding day was gorgeous - a sunny day, at a venue filled with natural beauty, with family and friends all coming together to witness the nuptials.

After arriving and taking a few scene-setting photos of the area, I photographed the bride's wedding dress, bouquet, shoes, and other wedding day details. My favorite item was a handmade quilt she the bride brought. She had been working on it since before her engagement to K, and it was now to become their first family heirloom. So sweet. ❤️   I used the quilt as the backdrop in some of the bride's detail photos and ended the day with a photo of her and the groom wrapped in it.  

J and K's ceremony was simple and lovely. They exchanged vows under a tulle-wrapped wooden frame under a huge tree at Spruce Pine Lodge. It was quiet and peaceful and everything a wedding should be.

There were many picturesque spots for post-ceremony family formals and portraits of just the bride and groom together afterwards. While guests mixed and mingled, we did portraits and then headed in for the reception.

The photos above are but a few of the highlights from this sweet and special day.
