looking glass falls wedding

When your first look is at a waterfall, you know it’s going to be a great afternoon. I could write a novel about these two and probably will at a later date. For now, here’s a small glimpse of an incredible day.

We began our ascent as the morning overcame the night. This was no ordinary hike. This was an off-the-beaten path adventure that left us breathless as we climbed to Shay + Tony’s secret spot off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. There wasn’t a trail to guide us, but the trees and rock formations marked the way.

Covered in morning dew, humidity, and sweat, we made it to the pinnacle. We were welcomed with a view of blue mountains and watercolors of the sunrise in the sky. Everyone changed into their wedding clothes, and the ceremony began.

Shay and Tony exchanged vows in the presence of two of their closest friends. Each friend emotionally expressed their love and affection for the couple. Elle held the bouquets made of foraged flowers from the day before. Joe handed over the rings while Shay + Tony made forever promises. With a kiss to seal the deal, everyone celebrated with a shout and champagne.

As we made our way down the mountain, we were showered with a morning thunderstorm. The forest felt enchanted as the rain found its way through the canopy of trees.

It’s been a few months in the making, but I’m excited to finally introduce Lucy on the blog! She’s been a wedding videographer for the past few years and is trying to transition into still photography. She has an incredible eye and is the kindest person. Here’s a little bit more, from Lucy:

“I grew up in a culturally diverse blended family where the exploration of art and photography were encouraged. I took my first photography class as a summer camp in 3rd grade, and have been sort of obsessed with photos and videos ever since. That said, it has only been in the last 3 to 4 years that I had the confidence to pursue photography as a career. In a previous career, I studied psychology and worked as a research assistant at UNC with children and families with developmental differences.

I am fascinated by light, and by the study of human behavior, development, and relationships. These are the elements I am drawn towards and tend to capture most in my photographs. My goal is to serve you by witnessing your story and aiding in the construction of your legacy.

When I don’t have a camera in my hands, you can probably find me listening to a podcast, and drinking tea with my pup Stella nearby.”
