So you want to get married in the mountains.
Driving from Asheville into the mountains, even just 30 minutes up, you will see the weather change. The temperatures drop and the wind picks up.
How do you plan around this?
One solution is simply surrendering. Getting married outside with nature surrounding you can be a risk. A risk worth taking. The views around here are unmatched, the cool air in mid-summer is gracious and the beauty of the greenery enveloping you is magical.
A few sprinkles never hurt anyone and wind can add to the magic.
Know that your wedding day is an ADVENTURE!
It’s about loosing sleep the night before because you’re so excited. It’s about jumping in the car before the sun rises to beat traffic on the Parkway. This is the magic of eloping, only worrying about the two of you.
I truly believe what I’m saying here, BUT(!) there are weather conditions my little camera won’t thrive in, so I get it.
I get it so much that I build in a back-up plan with you. If you’re planning your ceremony for 8am sunrise overlooking Mt. Craig, we will do everything we can to make this happen. Waterproof camera cases, sexy ponchos, adorable umbrellas, rain boots, you name it.
BUT(!) if the rain is fierce, the snow is deep or the lightning is striking, I’m likely to suggest our back-up plan. The back-up plan could simply be for later that day. It could be for the next day. It could be for the following week. No matter, we’ll find a solid plan because I understand how important the setting is. I get it.
