Beth ~ this gorgeous bride ... Chris ~ a McDreamy kind of groom ... four fabulous maids ... a to-die-for-dress ... and Kristin Vining ~ their sensational photographer! Doesn't get any better than this.

from the lovely bride, Beth ...

Our wedding was truly a celebration about our love for each other, our family and our friends. We tried to put a personal touch on every aspect. We didn't care about what was traditional or expected.

Chris and I love the outdoors and knew right away we wanted to have an outdoor wedding. We found the perfect location at the Lake Lure Inn. It had everything we wanted ... small town charm, the mountains, a lake, and the ability to have all of our guests stay in one place. One of our best friends was our minister! There were guests traveling from nine different states so that was really important to us. We had an intimate guest list of 78, wedding party included, meaning we truly got to spend quality time with each and every one of our guests.

One of my bridesmaids sang “We Are Man And Wife” during our sand ceremony. Karaoke was involved in our reception so that our minister, our bridesmaids and Chris could all sing. They were ALL amazing. This was a huge hit with our guests.

All in all, when Chris and I look back on the weekend, all we can say is ... it was perfect! It genuinely represented us as a couple, and we wouldn’t change a thing.

Kristin asked Beth, "What was the best thing about your wedding day?"

Beth answered, "How natural it felt. I was never nervous, it just felt right. Chris said the same thing. We were truly at ease knowing we finally got to commit our lives to each other."

As we said early on in this post  ... it just doesn't get any better than this!
