Colorful Spring Wedding near Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Amber and Sean had an absolutely stunning spring wedding at one of our favorites venues in NC; The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek

Ya’ll, if you’re recently engaged and you haven’t checked out this venue drop Tracy and the team there a note. If you’re looking for a beautiful mountain wedding venue that as you drive onto the property feels like you’re entering your own private oasis. This is it!

Anyways, when Amber first contacted me we immediately bonded over the fact that her sister in law was pregnant with twin girls and due around the same time I was. What are the odds?! We quickly bonded over other stuff though, such as a love for Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. In fact the Biltmore is where they got engaged and we immediately decided that it was the perfect place for their fall engagement session! Eventually I’ll get around to blogging that but I just had to share their beautiful wedding first.

Amber and Sean are two of the sweetest, most beautiful people we know. The kept their wedding party intimate and chose to do a first look so that after the ceremony we had minimal posed pictures which gave them the chance to relax a bit more throughout the day!

The Dunkard barn sits close to the reception lodge and has the most gorgeous view of the mountains. It’s a great place for your wedding party to be able to stay throughout the weekend and beautiful backdrop for photos as well!

If you follow my blog you know I love a good silhouette!

The honeymoon cottage at betty’s creek makes a gorgeous backdrop to shoot the brides details! It’s also beautiful inside and I love arrive to photograph getting ready knowing that I have such a photogenic location to work with!

Amber’s flowers were gorgeous. Perfect for the season! Lauren with Sweet Stems Flower Bar is amazing – If you’re looking for a florist for your vineyards at betty’s creek wedding you should give her a call!

The guys had fun exploring the property
