My Top 5 Destination Wedding Shoots, #4: Smokey Mountains, North Carolina

The Smokey Mountains provided an amazing backdrop that was the perfect reflection of this country couple. There was a charming vintage vibe that contrasted beautifully with the lush green mountain range.

The bride had been facing health challenges leading up to the wedding and the wedding had been postponed numerous times while she was recovering. The couple had originally planned a large formal wedding and decided to forgo that in favor of an intimate destination affair. They wanted to be in their favorite place with just their closest family and friends.

When the big day finally came the bride ditched her sparkly heals and wore white cowboy boots under her dress. The groom decided to leave the suit jacket behind in favor of a relaxed button-down shirt. I tried to reflect the wedding’s warm and relaxed vibe and vintage country location in the photographs I captured. It was one of the most loving and sweet weddings I have ever had the privilege to capture as a wedding photographer.
