If I could shoot a wedding every weekend like Anna and Anderson’s I would be a very happy woman! Their wedding day was everything you could expect from a wedding day, and more. The weather was perfect, everyone seemed so so happy, there was ample time for the bride and groom to chill and enjoy every part of their day. What more can you ask for? Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC was a fabulous venue. They have everything from an on site restaurant, to newly renovated rooms, a spa and tons of outdoor exploring options.
Anna and Anderson decided to do a first look on the Blue Ridge Parkway before their ceremony. We had the overlook to ourselves that afternoon, which was super ideal. Anderson’s reaction to Anna in her wedding dress was something I will never forget. The tears instantly started running down his face, he was speechless. He just hugged and kissed her and kept saying how beautiful she was. I cried, they cried, we all cried!
Once the hard part was over, the day just flew by. The ceremony was held under a beautiful weeping willow tree. The reception was right beside that where everyone danced, ate great food and roasted marshmallows by the fire pit. Does this day sound dreamy? because it totally was.
Anna and Anderson are such genuinely sweet people. I had the best time photographing their day!
Also, shout out to Jesse Roberts for being an amazing second shooter! He captured everything I needed him to, and more!
