Moody Wedding at The White Crow in Banner Elk, NC

Maddie + Austin.

These two are SO fun and their love and happiness with each other beyond evident. I couldn’t count how many times “I love you” was said if I had to. Since they love the highlands so much and it holds so many memories for them, it only made sense that they would commit their lives to one another in these mountains. This moody wedding at The White Crow in Banner Elk, NC was a dream. I absolutely LOVE photographing Boone weddings, but here in the mountains, you never really know what the weather is going to do. Even as the clouds rolled in, they still hoped for an outdoor ceremony – and an outdoor ceremony they had! The rain cleared up and moved out just 30 minuted before the ceremony.

Maddie and Austin shared a private moment before their ceremony where they exchanged letters and vows, right on the edge of the property. I really love when couples choose to incorporate a “first look” – or a “first touch”, like this! Not only is the privacy great for photos sake, but most importantly, the couple has this chance to release and discuss any anxiety they were feeling. Afterwards, they ALWAYS feel so much more at ease and ready to tackle the wedding day head on! There is no comfort that compares to finally hearing your partners voice.

Photographing this day was truly so special. It couldn’t have happened without this amazing vendor team!
