Kevin and Alexa’s wedding was a dream. It was a very cold, windy dream ūüėČ But I would rather re-live that feeling where I truly believe my fingers will fall off of my hands again and again if we could also re-live the love that took place that day. Friends and family gathered in Roan Mountain, TN for a relaxed, fun weekend with the couple and their bridal party. Guests stood and watched the ceremony from a distance as Kevin, Alexa and their bridesmaids and groomsmen stood on an overlook with the Tennessee mountain landscape. Vows were exchanged in the chilly mountain air, and the laid-back celebration was held at a nearby cabin. Not a moment went by that wasn’t heavy with genuine happiness from all in attendance! Enjoy a few of our favorites below from Kevin and Alexa’s rustic Roan Mountain wedding day!

Kris and Emily’s wedding could not have been more picturesque! Beautiful weather, beautiful venue, beautiful light, and a beautiful couple: all ideal ingredients for a beautiful wedding! This couple chose the gorgeous Chetola Resort in the mountains of Blowing Rock, NC for their big day- a gorgeous setting that we could not wait to photograph! We loved Emily’s spring-inspired color-scheme and had an absolute blast photographing this gorgeous couple and their bridal party during sunset! There was a lovely pond with wild swans swimming in it, and we made it our goal to catch the swans in the background of at least a few shots. Unfortunately, most of the swans kept their distance, except for one who honked in Emily’s direction during bridal party photos (we’re thinking he must’ve thought she was another swan in her white gown- hehe). But thankfully that swan glided into a few romantic shots just as the sun was setting, which made for a gorgeous portrait of the newlyweds! And of course we loved all of Emily’s meticulously planned details- as a teacher, she was so organized an on-the-ball throughout her planning of every aspect of her and Kris’s big day. The whole event was an absolute blast for us to have been a part of.¬†Enjoy a bunch of our favorites from Kris and Emily‚Äôs wedding,¬†and see a complete list of their vendors at the bottom of the post!
