For these two lovies, there was no place more fitting to share their vows than the North Carolina mountains they grew up in. Surrounded by their nearest and dearest and gorgeous scenery for days, they enjoyed the celebration of a lifetime made even more gorgeous in the hands of Rebecca Rose Events and Amy Lynne Originals. Laura Gordon was on hand to capture the bliss and don’t miss the film from Kenneth Price below.

From Rebecca Rose Events…I’ve known and worked with Sara, and called her a friend for long enough to know that when she asked me to style and coordinate her wedding day, it would not only be an enormous honor, but a wonderfully fulfilling process for me as an artist as well. Each detail was purposefully chosen, created and/or styled to reflect their playful personalities and delight the senses. Justin and Sara’s only wish was that the day be full of joy and free of distraction from what mattered most – their love and commitment to each other. What’s not to love about that?!
From The Bride…Justin and I grew up in separate North Carolina towns not too far from the mountains. We knew when we got engaged that there was no other place we could promise ourselves to each other than the mountains we grew up in.
Our ceremony was small, family only, at the Old Sherrill’s Inn outside Asheville, a charming place that suited us perfectly and that Justin found through a Google search two months (to the day) before our wedding after our original venue fell through. It couldn’t have been more of a happy accident.
My favorite part of our wedding day wasn’t a moment, necessarily, though seeing all the haphazard design ideas my mom and I dreamed up come together through Becca’s hands was pretty magical. The best part was truly how present I felt all day long. I remember the vows I said, and the way husband looked at me. I spent quality time with my family and his, watching our two families become a family. I laughed, cried, and spent time with my husband. That was the best part of the day for me.
As a photographer, having amazing pictures of the two of us on our wedding day was really important to me. We were so lucky to spend almost an hour with Laura taking photos together after the ceremony. It was definitely something we had to make a priority when planning our day, but amidst the all toasting and well-wishing, it was wonderful to have some time just for us.
