A Mountaintop Proposal in Black Mountain | Asheville Adventure Wedding Photographers

beautiful rainbow in the mountains pintopinterest You guys, I had SO much fun capturing this amazing mountaintop proposal! Admittedly it was a bit of an adventure before everything came together perfectly for these two. Matt had to be so very patient because mother nature had other ideas in her head and her own timeline in mind. You see, when Matt originally contacted me the plan was for him to propose at sunset on top of beautiful Max Patch. The weather forecast was a bit iffy for that evening but we texted back and forth and decided to take a chance. As I hit the road the weather looked a bit more promising, we had sunshine and even a few beautiful puffy clouds. I was excited… This was all going to come together simply perfectly for Matt and Sarah! As I got exited I-40 and made the turn north into the mountains the sky opened up… I mean, serious torrential downpour. I quickly pulled off the road and texted Matt an update. He and Sarah had just hit the road and we decided to continue with the plan in the hopes the storm would blow on through. The further I drove up the long windy dirt road the worse the weather got. I made it up to the parking lot and jumped out of the car…. Rain, wind… I waited a few minutes, hoping for some sign that the weather might decide to cooperate. No such luck. We opted to come up with a Plan B… montreat college hiking trails pintopinterest To make a long story short, mother nature didn’t exactly cooperate with Plan B either… Sunrise up at Craggy Garden’s was gusty, foggy and rainy. We decided to touch base after breakfast and I got to searching for a place close to Asheville with a beautiful mountain view. I found Lookout Mountain in beautiful Black Mountain. It was a short hike up to a craggy top with gorgeous mountain views. It sounded perfect! The sun was out and finally things were coming together for Matt to pop the question! black mountain lookout trailhead pintopinterest I hiked up about a 1/2 hour ahead of Sarah and Matt so I could get into place inconspicuously before they arrived! This also gave me time to shoot a few scene setting images! lookout mountain in black mountain nc pintopinterest The view from the top of Lookout Mountain was gorgeous! black mountains near asheville ncpintopinterest a mountaintop adventure engagement pintopinterest When Sarah and Matt first arrived there were quite a few people lingering on the summit..
