Destination Mountain Wedding – Robin and Adam’s Lake Lure Wedding


Robin and Adam’s Lake Lure Wedding day was full of bright, colorful moments.  The shades of blues throughout their day were more vivid and varied than I have captured in one day – steel blue clouds as I started shooting, bright azure blue sky appeared during their ceremony and the magic hour twilight was yet another spectacular range of blues from cobalt to sapphire.  It was almost too perfect as peacock feathers were a big part of the inspiration of this Lake Lure wedding.  The ladies were dressed in different shades of blues and greens holding purple flowers and parasols.  Robin wore the most breathtaking Vera Wang gown with a lace accented top that her dress fit over, adorned with her matching empire veil – just stunning.  She really let her personality shine with her turquoise and cream Corral boots under her gown.  The men were in tan vests and pants with a classic white shirt with peacock blue ties – and turquoise Vans!!  Adam’s bowtie proved to be a bit of a learning curve – and the power being out made finding a how to video online a little tricky – but the guys figured it out in time.  This wedding party was so much fun to work with – high energy throughout the day as they celebrated!!

I knew Robin and Adam were an awesome couple by how much fun we had planning for the big day and on their engagement session.  I learned that they were even more amazing than I had thought when I showed up to start shooting on their wedding day to find the power out in the entire area and they were not freaking out.  (The power outage may or may not been related a dearly departed grandmother of the bride that has been known to cause the lights to flicker since she’s passed…)  No one was too worried about it and they were having fun just being together – power or not!  Moments after the bride put on her dress, the power came back on and everything was back on track.  The Lake Lure Inn staff are amazing and always go above and beyond – and are probably the reason why no guests were stressing!  Lake Lure is a great place to celebrate with family and friends because it is a wonderful destination for everyone to get away and really spend time together before the wedding.

The skies cleared and everyone made their way to the gazebo for the ceremony that was one of the sweetest ever!  Fun fun fun reception and stunning little photo walks – tons of gorgeous shots I want to share!!  We’ve narrowed to our favorites and hope you adore them as much as we do.  Robin and Adam are so in love, are hilarious and have the best family and friends! – they were truly a blast to work with!!  Loved being their wedding photographer!!
