A Mountaintop Homespun Wedding: Allison & Scott

October 30, 2012

Allison & Scott were married at 4,629 ft, at their favourite place – the top of Max Patch Bald, NC. They hosted their reception in their own home. “The décor of the ceremony was the panoramic view of the Smokey/blue Ridge Mountains and the wild buttercup flowers”, they began. “At the reception, drinks were served in mason jars, farm tables were used for dining, and the flowers were roses and hydrangeas mixed with sunflowers in mason jars. Vintage plates and napkins were used and little jars of local Tennessee wildflower honey and dippers were at each table setting as favors. Our home was built in the 1800s and we wrapped the columns in garlands and roses.”

The whole wedding had a really personal feel and everything they included was significant.  A keen hiker, the groom and his best man camped out the night before near the ceremony site, and the bride and her bridesmaids stayed at a cabin just a mile up the road. The groom, his best man and all the guests were already on top of the mountain the morning of the wedding.

Allison and her nine bridesmaids then climbed the mountain together (0.7 miles) singing songs along the way. Friends sang ‘Home’ by Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes as the bride and her father made their way to meet Scott to be married. There were about 70 guests at the ceremony, who were all lead in a group meditation before the vows and the ring ceremony.

Simple, effortless and beautiful. Thank you to Allison & Scott and their fabulous photographer Tara of Dixie Pixel Photography for sharing with us today.
