Outdoor Wedding with Five Bridesmaids

If there were a prize for Most Attendants in our little outdoor wedding chapel, this one would win --hands down. Ten! Imagine! In our tiny chapel!

And I have to say, it was beautiful, it was wondrous, it was magical - to see the forest adrift in women in lovely gowns accompanied by tuxedoed gentlemen. They each emerged from the top of the clearing, floated along the stone path by the pond, down the steps, and followed the curving pathway to the altar. One would be approaching the alter, as the next was in the middle, just coming down the stairs, and another appearing from deep within the forest. Again, and again, and again.

Like a dream.

Sunny day in Maggie Valley

We had to move this couple's wedding to their reception site because it was raining like mad. The ceremony was still lovely, the friends and family and celebration just as warm, but OH how wonderful that they wanted to come the next day for their photo shoot on the property! All the guests at Timberwolf Creek had checked out, and we had access to everything. The bride and groom were so happy to be in the sunshine, that they climbed right down to the edge of the creek for the shot of the year. Doesn't this one just take your breath away?! And they had lots of fun coming up with innovative ideas, like the bride up in the balcony of the upstairs gazebo, with the groom standing on the ground below. "What light through yonder window breaks? Tis the East, and Juliet is the sun." Sigh! Such romance.

Handsome Groom in Smoky Mountain Wedding

Well, of COURSE all our grooms are handsome men, and we do enjoy taking their pictures. But there was no way I was going to let this one get away without a tip of the hat. I do wish all our grooms would wear hats, sigh! This one is timeless.

Mountain Elopement filled with Laughter

We never laughed so much with a wedding at Timberwolf Creek.  Ever.  This entire event was wreathed in smiles and overflowing with the sound of laughter!  My very favorite moment?  When the somewhat nervous bride murmured to her new husband that she wasn't sure how to cut the cake.  The groom was overheard quietly reassuring her that she could slice it any way she liked, and it would be just fine...  Until she actually touched the knife to the cake and he cried out, "No!  Not there!"

What a great day.  What a wonderful, warm, fun-filled beginning to a lifetime together.  Congratulations, y'all
