Emily and Jon's Mountain Weddings

When two people fall in love it seems like the whole worlds stops. And that was the case for Jon and Emily! I have known Jon for almost 10 years and was blessed to meet Emily at the beginning of their relationship. After a few years THE question was asked (even though we knew she was a keeper from day one) and the wedding began to take shape.  Jon and Emily had a day planned of a courthouse wedding so they could be legally married in the USA before they left for their beautiful destination wedding in Cancun Mexico.  However, Jon being the thoughtful guy he is, he planned a more memorable experience for his bride, a wedding at the Top of Grandfather Mountain, NC. Being on top of Grandfather Mountain you feel like you can see the east coast. The winds were blowing that day and but the sky was as blue as it could be. It could not have been a more perfect place for them to be that day.

 When their intimate wedding started of just family and a few very close friends it was like the world stopped just to see these two!  Between her light flowing dress and his constant need to put his sunglasses on it was a perfect way to join these two families. 

It was such an honor to be able to capture this moment for Jon, Emily and their families and to not only be present as a photographer of the event but to also be there as a friend. 

Weston and I wish you both all the happiness in the world!
