Wedding at the Lake Lure Inn and Spa / Dawn and Ty

There are so many things about Dawn and Ty's wedding at the Lake Lure Inn that I want to share, but I can't post hundreds of photos! So I am going to just have to settle with these favorites to tell their story. I started photographing the weekend with an "engagement session" even though it was a day before the actual wedding. They wanted the beautiful scenery around Lake Lure and Chimney Rock so we made a little time to play. I just love photographing down by the river. That night was the rehearsal dinner and a bonfire beach party. Yes that was a blast! I highly recommend doing that if you are getting married at Lake Lure Inn. Everyone loved it!!!!! The wedding day arrived and it was a perfect sunny day! The ladies looked fabulous! I love the cranberry red of the Bill Levkoff dresses!
A beautiful ceremony by Jacqueline Weiks of Your Perfect Ceremony. I love how she is always smiling!
Someone was very happy about this kiss!
Love the flowers and decor of the reception by Mandy of An English Flower Cottage. Not only is she a talented florist, but she also was the event planner making all this flow smoothly.
Dawn in her Nicole Miller gown and Ty in his Vera Wang grey vested tux looked quite stunning together! In fact the entire bridal party looked incredible! Love the kids being so darling for the camera.
Now this is an entrance!
What is a delicious dinner without dessert? How about pie? No "cake" cutting, just pie cutting. And how cute to have individual pies for the guests in multiple flavors!
Of course, one of my favorite moments is the mother/son and father/daughter dance.
The dances followed by a packed dance floor because Johnny White and the Elite Band were incredible!
And a perfect sendoff…sparklers!
One other vendor that I must give props to was Crown Alley Films. I love working with videographers that know their stuff and we can work in tandem, allowing each of us to get what the couple is expecting from both video and photography! Alan was awesome! Thank you to everyone that made this day possible, especially Dawn and Ty. I wish you two all the love and happiness that this world has to offer for you and your family!
