british mountain wedding inspiration

From Sarah: “For this styled shoot, we envisioned a British Groom marrying an American Bride at a family lodge set in the mountains of North Carolina. Keeping British traditions in mind, it was important to keep a classic feel in the rustic setting. Using a palate of copper, navy, and champagne with glimpses of deep red and aubergine, the wedding comprised of English garden flowers, loose natural style, green plants, flat cedars, taper candles and many unique decor pieces from their families personal collections.”

From Sarah:“The bride wore a flowing gown adorned with heirloom lace and wore antique family jewelry. Her bridal portraits were set among the trees and near a romantic waterfall hidden in the woods. Two young flower girls, dressed in ethereal dresses, walk hand in hand with the sweetest ring bearer. The ceremony takes placed tucked in the trees and the natural steps in the hillside topped with oriental rugs made for a cozy setting. The breathtaking mountain scenery of Lonesome Valley is a striking backdrop for the incredible evening reception.”

Sarah tells us: “After the ceremony, guests head inside to be welcomed by the fire and a Pimms specialty cocktail before being seated for dinner. Glowing candles reflect off copper pots full of glorious smelling flowers, blue and white antique china, and linen runners. They dine on scrumptious bites of local trout and summer salad handcrafted by the chefs at Canyon Kitchen. The wedding cake is a nod to the traditional English fruit cake and sits atop a bold traditional floral print, just waiting to be devoured!”
