Since Mary and Michael had recently moved to Waynesville, we decided to adventure around their new hometown for their engagement photo session. We wandered around downtown and local parks, and got to know each other a little bit more while talking about their wedding and life.
As the big day neared, her mom was not feeling up to being at the venue, so a plan to have a small ceremony at mom’s house was put into action. With a few family and dear friends in attendance, they gathered in the living room to have the most heartfelt ceremony. After so many happy moments, lots of hugs and well wishes and with an overjoyed mom resting, we gathered everything and headed to Brahma Ridge for the rest of the wedding day celebration. Brahma Ridge is a lovely mountain wedding venue tucked in a cove in Candler, North Carolina. I have adored getting to capture weddings there over the years, but this one was extra special in all the ways.
