MARRIED: Kate + Chazz / by Carrie Turner

So much of Kate and Chazz's wedding day was drawn directly from who they are as individuals and as a couple. They chose a beautiful outdoor venue, nestled in the mountains, where friends and family could camp along the creek, just steps from the ceremony site. The whole day was colorful and bright, with flowers from Blue Ridge Blooms, floral and vintage-inspired attire, and a fantastic dessert table (including macarons!) from 50Fifty. Their reception was decorated with paper heart garlands cut from maps and their guest book was a set of vintage postcards, thanks to their fondness for travel and exploration. Their love of nature and the outdoors infused their favors - packets of wildflower seeds - and even their choice of footwear: they changed into bright blue Chaco sandals during their reception. The groom's cousin had the sandals custom made just for the event. Even their wedding bands include leaves representing trees native to the various parts of the country in which they have lived. All of this, plus warm, friendly people and dream-like lighting, made this wedding day a photographer's dream. It was such a joy to share in their day and to create some beautiful images for them to remember it. All my best wishes to you both!! xoxo
