I hope you’re all staying warm during these January temps. We expect our first snowstorm in the south this weekend, and I am so excited! This will be Tux’s first time playing in the snow, and I can’t wait to see it. Before I log off for the weekend, I wanted to share my wedding photos from our outdoor ceremony at The Greystone Inn in Lake Toxaway!
I have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding. Being obsessed with greenery and flowers, it couldn’t be more fitting. I was a little nervous since it had been raining all day, but just a half-hour before walking down the aisle, it stopped raining, and while Kyle and I were exchanging vows, rays of sunshine came poking through the trees. It felt so magical.
Thank you, Amanda Castle, for capturing our wedding day! 📷
Our ceremony was at 6 pm on a summer night of June 9th. We had our intermediate family there to celebrate with us, and everything was so special. Our wedding ceremony overlooked Lake Toxaway, and it was simply dressed with white rose petals down the aisle and gorgeous bouquets designed by The Blossom Jar. I purchased these beautiful large honeycomb vases at Ballard Designs to go on the pedestals my dad had built.
These photos of Kyle made me smile so hard while looking through the album. Our photographer, Amanda Castle, shot our wedding so beautifully.
This was such a happy moment! My dad was such a champ helping me straighten out my train before walking down the aisle. My dress is from Winnie Couture in Charlotte.
All of the women wore a beautiful blush pink. Because I didn’t have bridesmaids, I thought it would look so nice if the guests were matching, and everyone looked amazing. Kyle and I bought blush ties from The Tie Bar for all the men and put them in the welcome bags. With an intimate wedding like this, the matching guests made the photos turn out stunning.We had the sweetest officiant, and I can’t recommend her enough! She was such a blessing to work with, and she made our ceremony so special. She sent us the script of our ceremony so we could have forever. I highly recomend asking for this so you can print it in your wedding album. My husband ❤️
After the ceremony, we dove straight into family portraits.
Before heading to the reception, we spent some time taking portraits with our photographer. It was so nice to get a moment with Kyle alone beore celebrating the rest of the night.
I love these photos so much. It was a dream day.
And then we were off to our dinner! I’ll be sharing all of the photos from our dinner and night of celebrating in the next wedding blog.
