Wedding at the Greystone Inn Lake Toxaway NC | Photography By A Castle Photo
It felt like Christmas yesterday when Amanda sent me over some sneak peeks from our Wedding day. This is not the official wedding blog post because I’ll need about a week to write that one up, and I’ll want to share all the photos from the wedding with you then. But I wanted to share the photos she sent over yesterday because they are so magical and really tell the story of how the night went. I’ll include some details that I was asked over on Instagram as well.
The night before 🖤
We had the sweetest man take us out for a ride on his wooden boat before our rehearsal dinner. I can’t wait to blog and share all the details from this night! We had our photographer capture the night before so we could be in the moment without phones, and I highly recommend doing that! Once I get those photos in a few weeks, I’ll write everything up! This summer is going to have some exciting blogs! I have wanted to write about so much like finding the perfect dress, our mini trips to Lake Toxaway, designing the wedding table, choosing a photographer, and so on!
We had our dinner at the Lake Toxaway Country Club (food pics coming soon)I spent the morning of the wedding relaxing. I had oatmeal and berries for breakfast, drank coffee, and took a long hot bubble bath. Before any big event, I love to be alone, listening to podcasts, reading, or writing.
I got ready with my mom in the Rockefeller suite. It’s such a historic Inn with all the cozy vibes. 🖤
My dress is Winnie Couture. It had a detachable train that was my favorite part.
The Greystone Inn was the perfect wedding venue. The inn’s event coordinator, David, was so easy to work with, and I felt as if we aligned on so many ideas. It’s important to work with people who see your vision as clear as you do.
Guest could stay busy by kayaking, canoeing, tennis, the pool, fishing, golfing, pickleball, hiking, horseback riding, and so much more.
It’s the coziest place that Kyle and I love to visit. I can finally share those old travel blogs! It’s located on a tall hill overlooking Lake Toxaway and the gorgeous mountains.
All of the women wore blush pink, and all the men wore black. If I’m being honest, that idea stemmed from me having a dream about people showing up in neon yellow and red. To avoid that dream coming to life, I decided to pick a color scheme, and I’m so happy I did because the photos turned out so beautiful, and I love when people match in photos, espically when it’s a small group of guest. It’s as if all the women there were my bridesmaids.

A few cell phone shots I took from my mom’s phone. But the cake was one of the most delicious cakes I’ve ever had! It was almond flavor, and each bite was pure heaven. It’s from Blue Ridge Bakery in Brevard.

Floral Design / Party Rental We had a farm-to-table style dinner, and it was absolutely delicious! I danced with Kyle and then my dad 🖤 The best night ever! I cannot wait to share the whole story and all of the other photos with you! If you have any questions you want me to include in the next wedding blog post, leave them in the comments below! ♥️
