WEDDING: Taryn + Mike / by Carrie Turner

Keep close to nature’s heart
— John Muir

For two people who met in the wilderness of Western North Carolina, there could not have been a more-perfect day or location for Taryn and Mike's wedding. They were married on a glorious fall day at the Pines Country Inn in Pisgah Forest, NC. Their ceremony spot was surrounded by friends, family, and the beautiful scenery of nature. From her handmade shoes to a bright and sunny bouquet to goldfish centerpieces at the reception, Taryn's creativity infused the entire day with a fun, colorful touch. Lots of joy and laughter filled the day, and it was such a pleasure to be there to document it. Best wishes for many years of adventure, nature, and love, Taryn and Mike!
