Listen, I’m going to go ahead and put this out there before I dive into this freaking gorgeous wedding. If you want to fly me and my second photographer to another state or country to photograph your wedding, I will happily oblige!
Now…living in Orlando, FL means no mountains. It means no seasons, either. So when Chelsey and Charlie asked me to photograph their wedding in the mountains of North Carolina, you better believe I said yes without thinking twice! And I will say…the moment we stepped out of the Atlanta Airport and got a breath of the cool, fresh air, I knew it was going to be a GREAT weekend.
When I met these two lovebirds for their engagement session in Baldwin Park, I like to think it was photographer-client love at first sight! We hit it off immediately, and their session was just beautiful. I mean…look at them. Love just oozes between them. How can their photos be anything but magical?!
Their wedding at Hawskdene in Andrews, North Carolina was something out of a fairy tale. This venue has it all. I am pretty sure that all but a handful of guests stayed on property (such a great option, especially for a destination wedding!), and we found ourselves an adorable Air BnB just 10 minutes down the road.
My absolute favorite part about this venue, among MANY, is that during cocktail hour, they take you up to a beautiful viewing point on the mountain. We went up there for gorgeous sunset photos, and the views were just breathtaking!
I could go on and on…and ON…about this wedding. The couple, the guests, the vendors, the owners of the venue (amazing), the weather…this wedding had.it.all. And Katelynn and I were so thankful that Chelsey and Charlie put their trust in us, flew us up for it, and allowed us to share in their most joyous occasion with them!
Enjoy this gorgeous wedding, and I hope you can feel the cool North Carolina air and abundance of happiness as you look through them!
