Destination Mountain Wedding – Jennifer and David’s Lake Lure Inn Gardens Wedding

Jennifer and David were married in the newly renovated gardens at the 1927 Lake Lure Inn in Lake Lure, NC.  It could not have been a more beautiful day for this deserving couple!!  The roses were blooming, surrounding the ceremony site, red and white rose petals running the sides of the aisle, perfectly complemented by huge silver lanterns.  An English Flower Cottage on Fleming Street did a great job with the floral and also with coordination for their big day.  The Lake Lure Inn staff always make weddings that much more special.  I want to say a big thank you to all the vendors and staff that make our jobs easier!!  We love capturing breathtaking weddings surrounded by the mountains in Lake Lure!!

The couple has overcome so much in their relationship and lives that their wedding day was even more of a joyous celebration than most.  It is hard to believe that Jennifer was in a horrible car accident that almost took her life and claimed part of a leg only a year before the wedding.  She was in a coma and they thought she would never walk again.  Her enormous spirit and drive did not let any of that stop her and worked hard with her doctors and physical therapists, got fitted with a prosthetic and started walking, running and dancing again.  If I had not shared their story and the photo that shows her prosthetic (fitted with dancing shoe none the less!!), you would never guess!!  Jennifer is happy to have me share her story to help inspire others that may be facing some huge challenges to show that with the right attitude, you can overcome anything.

We felt so inspired getting to work with such an amazing woman, her adoring and supportive husband, her awesome sons, and capture her loving family and friends that were overjoyed to not only celebrate the marriage but also her life.  Jennifer, David and their favorite people have so much fun together!!  We were in awe of this woman taking on all she does!!  My husband and I are in awe of Jennifer and all that she does – all with a huge smile!  We will always be inspired by the fact that she danced more and enjoyed her day more than almost any bride we have had the honor of capturing!!!!

Jennifer and David, we cannot thank you enough for letting us be your wedding studio and to be there for you during such an important time in your lives!  We are changed for the better after meeting you all!!  🙂     THANK YOU!!!
