Sawyer Family Farmstead Wedding

Photographing a Sawyer Family Farmstead wedding is a wedding photographer’s dream. The Farmstead is located in the Western North Carolina mountains. After 10 years of being a wedding photographer and working throughout the South, I have learned that the fall in Western North Carolina very special. On this trip, as soon as we got to the mountains and saw the warm fall colors and perfect weather, we knew it was going to be a great wedding weekend, and it certainly was.

Sawyer Family Farmstead did an incredible job making their property perfect for weddings. The Farmstead is located in the charming mountain town of Glenville, North Carolina.  It sits on a plateau overlooking the mountains and nearby Lake Glenville. The most spectacular part about it is that they have one of the prettiest ceremony locations we’ve ever seen! The lake view is visible during the ceremony and they have a really beautiful wedding arch. The sun sets perfectly over the mountains and lake behind the arch and all of the action.

This mountain destination wedding was so well planned by our bride and groom, Corrie and Matt. Corrie and Matt live in Tampa, Florida but wanted to give their family and friends a unique experience, so, they decided to host their wedding in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. Everything went off without a hitch and everyone had an amazing time. Thank you to the wonderful wedding vendors that helped put this wedding on! A special thank you to Sawyer Family Farmstead and their incredible staff lead by Nicole (who took amazing care of the bride and groom as well as their guests). And, thank you so much to Corrie and Matt for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day! Congratulations!!

Enjoy the wedding photos!

Fairyland Club Wedding on Lookout Mountain

I am so excited to share Kyra and Tom’s gorgeous Fairyland Club wedding on Lookout Mountain! Being asked to photograph the wedding of a former bridesmaid and/or groomsman is probably the greatest compliment one can receive as a wedding photographer. I’m honored that after watching me work and seeing the final result, another bride and groom would entrust me to do the same for them on their most important day. Kyra and Tom were in the wedding party of the wedding of one of our former couples, Alex and Wells and I remember them well from the wedding. They were such a cute couple and I was hoping they would call me when the day came. When that day did come and they did contact me, I was ecstatic, and the wedding they had planned only made me more excited!

Kyra and Tom were married at The Fairyland Club in Lookout Mountain, Georgia on a beautiful Spring day. As the name hints, there is definitely something magical about Lookout Mountain, as well as the surrounding area of Signal Mountain and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga is an awesome little city set on the Tennessee River and surrounded by picturesque mountains with tons of great restaurants and breweries. They also had a ton of great local vendors to help make the everything come together. The beautiful floral arrangements were provided by Humphrey’s Flowers. The amazing cake was provided by Dan Carrey at Cake Makers. The Malemen Band provided the entertainment. Christine Scott was the wedding planner and made the day wonderful for everyone.

Kyra was stunning in her Martina Liana wedding dress from LeRaine Bridal Boutique in Atlanta. Her makeup was done by Jessica Eubanks and her hair by Devin Baker. The bridesmaids dresses were purchased at Azazie. Everyone, from the bridal party to the guests, looked great and had an amazing time. The best part about it was working with Kyra and Tom. From their engagement session, to the planning, to the wedding, Kyra and Tom could not have been nicer. I loved getting to see this couple I had met a year ago at a wedding say their own vows to each other. It was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful Fairyland Club wedding! Thank you Kyra and Tom!
