Rainy weather couldn’t diminish the bright-eyes and smile of this sweet bride, Kristen. Between her stunning nature, Tim’s laid back eagerness, and the incredibly gorgeous mountain wedding setting, the day was actually quite perfect. We started our day at Kristen’s childhood home in Blowing Rock and all caravanned over to Linville for the ceremony + reception at The Camp at Eseeola, which was so gorgeous and rustic it blew my mind. It was our first time working with Katrina, owner of Come + Together Events and The Bloom Room, and WOW did they nail it! The design of the entire event was breathtaking!
I had three favorite parts of the day, which of course I’ll itemize for you:
1. When Kristen and Tim, along with their parents, joined the band on stage for “We are Family”. There is something really meaningful in seeing two large families come together in community, because of two people. It was symbolic and also pretty crazy!
2. Releasing of the lanterns at the end of the wedding reception. Honestly, nothing can describe the beauty of watching dozens of paper lanterns floating into the quiet universe.
3. Our own dinner time w/ Geoff & Cheyenne Shultz. Gosh, these two are super fun photographers and extremely kind people! We enjoyed every minute of working alongside them and getting to know them professionally + personally. Hooray for new friends!
Hope you enjoy the film we created for this dear couple…
