biltmore estate bridal portrait pintopinterest This beautiful lady got married at the end of June at the gorgeous Lioncrest at Biltmore Estate. I’m so excited to share the bridal portrait session we did just a couple weeks before she and German walked up the aisle and said “I do.” I think many brides would have awakened to the rainy weather we were greeted with and thought “Heck no, I’m not taking my wedding dress out in this!” Not Alyssa though… She happily put her wedding dress on and we headed over to the Biltmore Conservatory where we found the driest ground possible. bridal portrait in the biltmore estate rose garden pintopinterest Alyssa rocked her bridal session in the Rose Garden at the beautiful Biltmore Estate. How beautiful is she?! rose garden at the biltmore estate bridal portraits pintopinterest I love the back of Alyssa’s dress – the buttons and lace detailing were stunning. bridal portrait at the biltmore estate conservatory pintopinterest This is one of my favorites from our session.

Vineyards at Betty's Creek a luxury NC mountain wedding venuepintopinterest Oh, you guys…. Matt and I have photographed at many amazing wedding venues over the years…The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek left us saying “WOW!!” The amazing combination of rustic beauty, elegance, and privacy the property offers is unparalleled. Tracy, the event manager for Vineyards at Betty’s Creek, gave us a tour of the property and we got to see inside the four stunning buildings that couples (and their wedding party/family) have access to when they book their event at VBC.

Set near the Great Smoky Mountains in the heart of Nantahala National Forest, The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek offers a quintessential (and luxurious) mountain wedding experience. A stunning north carolina mountain wedding venue pintopinterest During our tour Tracy shared with us so many amazing facts about the property and how it came to be. The property consists of hundreds of acres (I believe Tracy said over 600 acres) of land that have now been placed under conservation. There are hiking trails on the property for guests to explore. You can see a map of the property in the image above – the brighter green section on the lower map is the part of the property utilized for weddings.Everything else is beautiful mountainous conservation land. The inside of Bettypintopinterest The Honeymoon Cottage at Betty’s Cellar is the home of the property’s original 1900’s wine cellar. The upstairs features a spacious loft area with a beautiful king-sized bed and luxurious ensuite bath with a giant clawfoot tub! Outside Betty’s Cellar is a beautiful stone patio where ceremonies can be held! The view from inside the lodge at the Vineyards at Betty's Creekpintopinterest The view from the Dunkard Barn Lodge is stunning as you look out over the onsite vineyard and surrounding mountains of Western North Carolina. cute outbuilding at Vineyards at Bettys Creek pintopinterest This little building is one of the many original outbuildings on the property that make the perfect background for wedding party or bride and groom photos! This building is set right next to a stunning trout pond which is home to some of the healthiest looking trout I’ve seen! The beautiful Vineyards at Bettys Creek pintopinterest The Dunkard Barn Lodge hosts the main (and I might add – very luxurious) accommodations onsite for wedding party + families. Tracy shared with us how the barn was built originally in Pennsylvania. It was then moved in sections to North Carolina where it was reassembled on The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek Property. Set at the top of the vineyards and just a short walk from the main reception pavilion, it boasts stunning views of the Great Smoky Mountains. The inside of the lodge is striking, featuring custom-built furniture made from reclaimed lumber. The lodge patio offers space for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours or simply a quiet place to gather with friends!

brown mountain beach resort wedding photospintopinterest We had a blast photographing Jordan and Fernando’s quintessential fall wedding at Brown Mountain Beach Resort. You might remember these two from their fun Craggy Garden engagement session or from the recent post I put together featuring Jordan’s bridal portraits at Brown Mountain Beach! As wonderful as those two sessions were, their wedding is even more amazing and I’m so excited to share some favorite images with you all today!!!

BMBR is an amazing venue set at the base of Linville Gorge, about an hour from the mountain towns of Boone and Blowing Rock. It’s a pretty wonderful place for a destination wedding because it has the most amazing little cabins on the property for family and friends to stay in. There is a gorgeous river out back for swimming in and relaxing by… On wedding days most people have their ceremony on the sandy beach by the water.

She is still as cute as ever – just like… 5x her original size! These are a few favorite images from a little adventure we took this past winter, as our family ventured to nearby Dupont State Forest for some fun waterfall exploration! If you haven’t been to this gem in Western NC – go! It’s stunningly beautiful! In the wintertime icicles line the falls. In summertime the river and even the base of popular Hooker Falls offer great swimming!! We head there often for walks in the woods and waterfall exploration!
