Summer Wedding The Vineyards at Betty's Creek : C + J

Updated: Jan 29

If you’re looking for a little summer wedding inspiration, then look no further than Josh and Casey’s wedding day here at The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek! Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains that we are blessed to call home, The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek is another one of our absolute favorite wedding venues in WNC! Located just an hour west of the always popular Asheville, NC, The Vineyard’s at Betty’s Creek is such a dreamy location for photographers and couples alike. The combo of vineyards & mountain views make this setting hard to beat but throw in all the character of their lodging and variety of their landscape and it’s easy to see why so many of our couples fall in love with this venue!


Josh and Casey initially contacted us about 16 months out from their big day! It was apparent from the get go how special this day would be to them. Especially since a lot of Josh’s family and close friends would be traveling from the UK to be in attendance. It was going to be a multi day celebration with a rehearsal dinner, welcome BBQ, and finally their wedding day! We always love when our couples have this option to really make things last for a few days and soak in all the quality time with friends and family. Having been on the opposite end of that for our wedding day, we know the stress that can come with not being able to spend enough time with your loved ones who traveled hours to be there. When the day of their welcome BBQ finally arrived, we were just getting settled back in from being in Wyoming all summer. It was a stark contrast from the dry dessert coming back to the lush greenery and oh yeah rain! It felt like there was a stretch of time where every wedding in NC had rain for a couple months. Thankfully things stayed clear for the majority of Josh and Casey’s wedding weekend. The BBQ was also the first time got a chance to connect with Josh and Casey in person which is always exciting for us! Casey welcomed us both with a big hug and instantly made us feel like one of the crew. We could tell from the overall vibe and energy that we were going to be in for a fun celebration with her and Josh. As the wine flowed, live acoustic music hit the air, and generations of family laughed together, we snuck these two away for a few couples portraits as the sun was going down. Instant chemistry on camera and we were stoked for the next day!


That same feeling carried over into their wedding day and the good times continued to roll! Even with the weather giving a bit of a scare just prior to their ceremony, I don’t think I ever saw Casey or Josh get stressed once! The little bit of cloud cover made for a perfectly soft lit wedding and before you knew it, these two said I do! It was one that we were sad to see end but one that we are so grateful to have been a part of! We hope you enjoy following along and big congrats to Casey and Josh and their families!
