Chestnut Ridge Wedding: Taylor + Tyler

Updated: Mar 11

Taylor and Tyler’s wedding was the last day we visited Chestnut Ridge this year! If you haven’t stumbled upon this beautiful venue yet, it’s nestled beautifully among the mountains of western North Carolina about 30 minutes west of Asheville! It’s always a pleasure getting t0 come visit but Taylor and Tyler made it that much better! In truth this was our first time getting to meet them on their big day! Like many of our wedding clients who live states away, we don’t always get a chance to meet in person but after meeting with Taylor’s mom and connecting with them both on the phone, we knew we were going to be in for a fun wedding day! The moment I walked in the groom’s room it was a healthy dose of college football and cheers, or jeers depending on who you were rooting for. (full disclosure my gators won that one lol). It was bit more calm in the bride’s suite and as Brittney from Flawless made sure these beautiful ladies looked their best, we documented the lovely details of the day accented perfectly by the florals of our friends at Stargazers Designs!

Taylor and Tyler decided to have their wedding ceremony in the beautiful pavilion which was a great call as it was an exceptionally cool fall season this year for the area. After the short intimate ceremony as well as the swarm of love from the bridal party afterwards, our friends at Mingle Events helped us fly through the family photos just in time to capture some golden hour portraits for Taylor and Tyler! (Thanks Caroline!)

Taylor and Tyler's joy was infectious, and it was most evident by observing those around them. They both had the sweetest easy going demeanors with constant love and energy being reflected back to them by their friends and family. Any time we get to visit Chestnut Ridge it’s a pleasure, but getting to be a part of such genuine and kind people like Taylor and Tyler’s wedding make it truly special!

Big thanks to all of the amazing vendor's who helped make this day AWESOME!
