Check me out, two blog posts in one week!? Well when you have gorgeous weddings just waiting to be shared with the world… it makes this whole blogging thing much easier. Today I am thrilled to share these gorgeous photos of Leah and Tim’s Mt. Pisgah wedding by Aaron Courter Photography.
It was raining the morning of their wedding, and I was a little nervous. Leah wanted to keep the ceremony outside so we went ahead and set up all of the chairs outside. It continued to rain lightly all afternoon while we prepared the reception in the pavilion, but about an hour or so before the ceremony, the rain stopped! It was perfect.
Aaron did a phenomenal job of capturing everyone’s emotions in these images… you can really feel the anticipation, excitement, and joy that filled that day in August! Enjoy the photos and read on to hear more about Leah and Tim’s big day.
I LOVE first look photos. How adorable are these two!? And can we please take a moment to recognize Tim’s amazing blue suit? love it.
The emotions I was talking about? Here is a great example… so beautifully captured!
One of the things I loved about Leah and Tim’s ceremony is how they had attendants of both the bride and groom standing on either side of them, instead of the traditional bridesmaids on the left and groomsmen on the right. I genuinely love it when couples do things a little differently to fit what’s right for them rather than following the traditions perfectly. Whenever one of my brides asks me if they “should” do something I usually tell them it’s their wedding, and it’s totally up to them! Don’t feel like doing a garter toss? Don’t do it. Don’t feel like wearing white? Don’t do it. It’s your wedding, after all. Uh oh… I feel another blog post coming on. You might here more from me about this later. ;)
Leah, along with her two sisters (pictured above) were all engaged at the same time! How fun is that!? Leah was the first to get married, and now she gets to be matron of honor in her sister’s weddings just like they were for her. :)
Leah and Tim’s reception decor and flowers were natural and simple, yet elegant and I loved how perfectly they tied in with the natural beauty of Mt. Pisgah. Their table names were locations that they had traveled to together. Such a great idea!
Cornucopia provided the delicious food for the evening, and Market of Choice provided the tasty cake.
So the rain came back a little later, as guests were eating dinner. Plates helped keep the rain off of guests until we set up a couple of tents out on the patio. Thankfully, it stopped again in time for dancing! :)
Nik with a Sound Choice Entertainment kept the dance floor full all evening, and it was clear that everyone had a fantastic time!
Leah and Tim both live in Seattle, so I didn’t get to spend a ton of time with them outside of their wedding day and rehearsal…but let me tell you — these two are SO in love and have incredible families to support them. I am so happy for you both and wish you all of the best! I am so glad I was there to coordinate such a special day and to see it unfold so beautifully. Thank you so much, Leah and Tim!
And thank you to all of these fabulous folks who helped the day go so smoothly:
