This wedding on the Appalachian Trail is one of the most memorable moments revolving around love in my entire life. The wedding took place off the Appalachian Trail at the Wayah Bald Lookout Tower. As you will see in the pictures to come, the overlook of the trail was breathtaking and served as the most amazing backdrop for these wedding pictures.
We started the day at 3am since we had to be ready for the ceremony which was right at sunrise for this Appalachian Trail wedding. The girls began doing hair and makeup in one of the 2 cabins that we were staying in. From the start my wife and I began shooting the wedding details while the girls got ready. After the details, I took a trip down to the grooms cabin to watch him get ready.
It was such a fun experience watching the girls get ready, they even broke out a game of UNO while they got ready. Since there was no planner we all had to keep our eyes on the clock. After the girls got hair and makeup done, we got the bride in her dress and put her veil on. At this point we all loaded up in cars and took off to Wayah Bald Lookout Tower for this amazing Appalachian Trail wedding.
As soon as we pulled up, we all jumped out of our cars and rushed to the lookout so we could get the wedding started right before sunrise. The colors from the sky during the ceremony were gorgeous! Every few minutes during the ceremony, more and more colors revealed themselves. This beautiful Appalachian Trail wedding was small and intimate, only family and close friends attended.
After the first kiss, I took a few shots of the bride & groom and then we took off to a cabin to rest and eat brunch. This was such a fun time being around these awesome people. After brunch, I took the bride & groom out to take a bunch of pictures off of the Appalachian Trail. I doubt anyone else will have as beautiful of a wedding off the Appalachian Trail like this one.
