From the Photographer:
It’s always a little extra special when a couple brings us with them to photograph their destination wedding. Brianna and Martin chose the beautiful Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure in North Carolina. It’s right on a huge lake at the base of Rumbling Bald Mountain. The scenery was just gorgeous, much different than Florida.
The ceremony was at the bottom of a tiered pavilion with the lake and mountains as the backdrop. Martin may have had a little tear as Brianna walked down the long pathway to meet him as Tom handed of his daughter. I love destination weddings, especially since I have my very own officiant that I can bring with me that I can also room with, aka my husband, David:-) Martin is hilarious, and always cracking a joke or laughing, so he is in almost all of his photos, which I love.
Brianna and her mom created all of the reception details from the lantern centerpieces to the birchwood heart cut out candle holders. Martin even cut the trunk of a huge tree and made the wood planks that the cupcakes and cake sat on! Everyone had a blast and before we knew it, it was time for the sparkler exit!
