There’s something undeniably special about intimate weddings. And, that’s exactly what I experienced when I had the pleasure of capturing Hope and Michael’s fall mountain wedding at the Magnolia House in Hot Springs, NC. When I arrived, I was immediately wrapped in the warm embrace of cozy fall hues and the noticeable love between Hope, Michael, and their close family, most of whom had traveled from Florida to celebrate this beautiful day. Come see more of their beautiful wedding day below to get inspired for your intimate day next!

Hope & Michael’s Fall Mountain Wedding Day

The couple chose to spend the morning together, breaking with tradition in the most beautiful way. Imagine the laughter, the glances, and the comfort of being with your loved one on the morning of your wedding! It was a serene and intimate start to the day, which only heightened the anticipation for their first look once Hope was in her dress.

Now, let me take a moment to tell you about that first look! In her stunning wedding dress, Hope took Michael’s breath away. Their eyes met, and in that moment, the world stood still. It was as if they were the only two people in the universe. The tenderness of that moment was simply indescribable. What followed was a long cocktail hour, a testament to Hope and Michael’s desire to spend quality time with their guests. This wasn’t just a quick hello, but rather a chance to create lasting memories with their loved ones. The laughter, the stories, the clinking glasses – it was all a demonstration of the joyous occasion and the couple’s commitment to their family and friends.

And the cake! Can we talk about the cake? In a delightful twist, Hope herself made the wedding cake. Each layer was a reflection of her love, skill, and attention to detail. It was not only delicious but a beautiful centerpiece that added a personal touch to the celebration.
