Chapel of Rest, Inn at Ragged Gardens, Blowing Rock, NC // Wedding Photography

You've likely never heard of it, but Happy Valley is an appropriately named little town in Caldwell County, North Carolina, not far from the City of Lenoir and Blowing Rock.  Right in Happy Valley is the beautifully historic Chapel of Rest.  If you're a history buff, the chapel is on the Historic Register of Deeds, and its cemetery dates back to around the Civil War era. Like many of the places I have the pleasure of working, this spot is a photographic gem. Combine this wedding location with a reception at the Inn at Ragged Gardens in downtown Blowing Rock and you've got yourself a perfect destination wedding.

Amanda & Mike, you were a pleasure to work with! Warm wishes on your journey of life!

Fall Mountain Wedding at Twickenham House, Ashe County, North Carolina / Destination Wedding Photography

A late fall wedding at The Twickenham House in Ashe County, North Carolina. Not very far from Boone, NC and the town of West Jefferson, this private, luxury, mountain home location is the perfect spot for a small-to-medium sized, destination wedding event in the mountains. And naturally, of course it lends itself to great photography. Congratulations to Melissa & Joel who left these beautiful mountains for a Honeymoon in India. Cheers!
