Carlie and John celebrated a very special wedding day at the Golden Horseshoe Inn on a sunny late November afternoon.  I loved everything about this beautiful event, an afternoon tea full of delicate handmade details and tones of blush and deep blue.  Carlie was an absolutely gorgeous bride, with her curls pinned back with a […]

We were honored to host an elegant and cozy wedding day for our sweet (and stunning!) bride Victoria and her handsome groom James.  I loved being near the gentle energy of this lovely couple as they navigated their wedding day together.  Victoria and James chose a sparkling color scheme of turquoise and silver, with hints […]

Warm socks.  Cozy Sweaters.  A chilly breeze in the air. Oh, and a herd of tame deer.  This was an unforgettable day!  I was so excited to join Sara and James on Skyline Drive for their engagement photos.   Little did we know that we’d have a few unexpected visitors joining us for the shoot!  We […]

We had the pleasure of celebrating the most wonderful wedding day with Cassie and Will, and their close friends and family.  It was the perfect November day, with lots of fall color still on the tree’s and a chilly breeze perfect for cocoa sipping!  Guests arrived to find that cocoa waiting for them just inside […]

The first week of November is always my favorite wedding week!  The hustle and bustle of October has passed, but the leaves are still so beautiful on the trees… even more so this year with a later than usual color change.  So last Saturday was the perfect day for the beautiful autumn wedding of Rachel […]

Destinee and Jonathan had a beautiful autumn wedding at the Golden Horseshoe Inn.  Their color palette of rust and cognac was perfectly in line with the beautiful changing leaves just outside the door.  Destinee and her mom and bridesmaids enjoyed a wonderful morning of pampering as they had their hair and makeup done in the […]

We celebrated a beautiful fall wedding day for Ashley and Brandon this past weekend.  Rain was gently falling as our morning preparations began, but Ashley said “I just feel like the sun will come out for our ceremony” and sure enough she was right!  A lovely outdoor ceremony, complete with a mountain wind and drifting […]
