Intimate MountainTop Wedding \\ Alex & Craig

I've been so excited to share Alex & Craig's sweet intimate wedding with you all! It was definitely one of my favorite highlights of 2017. The love these two share is so genuine and I truly enjoyed being able to watch them express it through marriage in front of their closest friends and family.

To begin the day, the ladies got ready in one cabin and the guys got ready in another. It was the perfect balance of peacefulness and excitement, all at once.

You all probably know by now that I am a SUCKER for pups. Craig and Alex's pup was an important part of their day & I ate up every second of it.

Together, everyone hiked to a peak of Black Balsam knob to enjoy one of the most intimate, heart-felt ceremonies I have ever experienced. Not only was the view breathtaking, but the words that were spoken and the love that was shared was even more beautiful. There's something so special about having a small, sweet ceremony with the ones you love most.

Their ceremony was so incredibly beautiful & filled with meaning. Alex and Craig had everyone choose a stone to hold during the ceremony and then put into a container for the bride and groom to keep so that they would have the energy from each person with them in the collection of stones. I absolutely loved the way they decided to incorporate their guests and people they love. Some people read, some gave a toast, and some helped with the practical stuff! Everything about this ceremony was unique, collaborative, and absolutely beautiful.

Alex & Craig concluded the evening with a lovely outdoor reception beside their cabin in the woods. The candlelit table and the strung lights made for the perfect romantic setting. Their guests showered them with love and kind wishes, then sent the happy couple off into the night.
