Daniel & Leigh // Intimate Blowing Rock Garden Wedding
Daniel and Leigh are one of those couples you meet and you know you’re with people who care deeply, love well and emanate kindness. The wedding was at Leigh’s parents home in Blowing Rock NC, the home of her upbringing, with only family present, before heading over to the legendary Gamekeeper restaurant for a relaxed evening meal. Being with Daniel and Leigh, a carpenter and an artist, and their family, felt like I was with family too. There was creativity and reverence for nature everywhere. I felt I was able to take in the day slowly, receiving images instead of taking them. I will always remember this wedding as one of the most gentle days with people who know what it is to love deeply.
*Side note on the bourbon - I learned that it is a southern tradition to bury a bottle of Bourbon in your yard to keep the rain away on your wedding day. You may dig it up after the ceremony. It worked! We were forecast a dreary day and lo, it was absolutely gorgeous. And so was the bourbon!
