The Barn at Young Harris Wedding http://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/7/thebarnatyoungharriswedding I have been truly blessed to be able to do what I love! I love being able capture a couple's wedding day. From their vows to each other, to their first kiss as husband and wife, and then finally to send them off on their honeymoon. Each wedding day is filled with so much emotion. Being able to witness and be a part of that is truly an honor.


The Barn at Young Harris  is one of my favorite venues to shoot. It always provides breathtaking mountain views for wedding ceremonies and this past weekend was no exception. 


This view is an incredible place to exchange wedding vows!

The Hackney Warehouse: 50th Anniversary Celebration http://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/6/the-hackney-warehouse-50th-anniversary-celebration Meet Jenny and Alan. In June 1968 this couple pledged their love to each other. This June 2018 marks 50 years since their original wedding vows. As you will see from the photos below they are still very much in love.


Together with their family and friends, Jenny and Alan had their 50th wedding anniversary celebration at the beautiful Hackney Warehouse in downtown Murphy, NC.


I hope you enjoy this preview. I will admit, this is the first time I have had the pleasure to capture a couples "vow renewal". I'm known for being very tenderhearted and tearing up at some point during each wedding that I photograph. However, just watching this couple all evening, realizing that this is what can become of all the "newlyweds" that I photograph on so make occasions.. I stand in awe.


I just love this shot while they are holding their original wedding photo.

Jenny's wedding dress on display. What a neat idea!

Another beautiful cake by LaMuir.

Look at these two! 50 years and they still can't keep from grinning at each other!!

Willow Creek Falls Wedding: Kaitlyn and Charlie http://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/6/willow-creek-falls-wedding-kaitlyn-and-charlie I can't believe it's already been a week since Kaitlyn and Charlie's wedding! This couple said their vows under the beautiful willow tree at Willow Creek Falls. Due to the amount of rain all week, there was a last minute change in the ceremony site, but I can't image it being any more beautiful! Here are a few of my favs from the day.

I loved the long walk that Kaitlyn and her Dad had to take. Made for such a grand entrance!

Hooked on Bryant http://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/4/hooked-on-bryant "Hooked on Bryant" was the theme of Natalie and Lucas's wedding this past weekend.

This couple wasn't going to let a plummet in temperature or rain get in the way of the perfect wedding day that they had anticipated for such a long time!

I'm so glad that they didn't, because their wedding was wonderful. The setting, so serene, made an awesome backdrop for Natalie and Lucas to begin their forever.

Handmade by Natalie's Grandfather.

As the night went on, we made sure to warm up next to the fire!

Brasstown Valley Resort Wedding; Ashley and Jeff http://willowwindphoto.com/blog/2018/2/brasstown-valley-resort-wedding-ashley-and-jeff You can't tell the story of Ashley and Jeff without first talking about Ashley's adorable mini-me. When asked who her favorite princess is, she simply replies "My Mommy".

This sweet couple and their families traveled from Florida to have this amazing view as the backdrop for their wedding ceremony. All day, the clouds were heavy, and we feared rain. As everyone began to walk down the aisle, the sun began to beam down.

Congratulations Ashley and Jeff!
