Most wedding photographers (including myself) get a little break in the month of December. It’s typically not a popular month to get married but this year we had THREE December weddings and LOVED every single one of them! Our first one was at Chestnut Ridge with Lizzie and Wesley! They were blessed with a stunning day, lots of sunshine and perfect temps! This summer we were asked to be one of the preferred vendors at Chestnut Ridge, a new timeless wedding venue in Canton, NC. When I first saw this venue my jaw dropped to the floor, y’all! I had viewed a lot of photos but photos truly can’t do it justice. As soon as you arrive at the venue you are surrounded completely by the blue ridge mountains. Taylor didn’t miss a thing when designing Chestnut Ridge – every detail is perfected! We are truly honored to be a preferred vendor and LOVED our first wedding here!
Lizzie and Wesley are full of life, energy, and love. It’s clear that they are rooted deeply in their family and cared for by so many. Some of my favorite moments for their wedding day include:
Lizzie’s long-sleeved laced dress – just wow!
At the end of the ceremony, I loved witnessing guests praise and worship by raising their hands in gratefulness just before they were pronounced husband and wife.
Witnessing the traditions between each family – particularly Lizzie’s side. After dinner Lizzie and Wesley walked to each and every table to thank them for coming and each table/family hands them a card with their congratulations. By the end, Lizzie’s hands were full of cards!
The food! There was a FULL course meal including an entire lobster for each and every table! The food just kept coming and it was amazing!
The heartfelt speeches by so many friends and family!
Lizzie and Wesley, it was such an honor to capture your stunning day and we are so happy to share your wedding day!
Thanks to all of the amazing vendors who made this day so great!!
