Next up on our day of Brett Heidebrecht, we’re headed to the North Carolina mountains for the ultimate autumn “I do”. With a backdrop of golden leaves and pinch-me views, this couple tied the knot amongst so much natural beauty it nearly stole the show. Fall brides, The Vault is officially your inspiration goldmine.


From the photographer, Brett… The North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains provide one of the most breathtaking views for a ceremony I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing. What started out as a rainy morning turned into a sunny, blue skied day out on the beautiful High Hampton Inn lawn with the face of Rock Mountain and Hampton Lake in the background.

It’s one of those views that seems too good to be true. All eyes on the majestic mountain, that is until Shepard made her way down the aisle in her showstopper of a gown by Monique Lhuillier.  

From the lawn we moved to a beautiful tent out on the golf course. The Retreat out of Atlanta serenaded as Brendon & Shepard shared their first dance on the black and white checkerboard dance floor. After dinner the band played one of the liveliest dance parties I’ve seen and even included an impromptu cameo by one of the guests on saxophone. We closed the night with sparklers, the bride and groom charged through as their friends and family wished them a cheery goodbye.
