It is always a pleasure to get to photograph at Forrest Hills Mountain Resort. They always have gorgeous backgrounds for wedding pictures as well as the horse and carriage ride for the bride and groom. Who doesn’t love that?!
But we got nervous when we got there and found out the bride wasn’t getting ready in the building next to the ceremony site, but instead she was getting ready in the basement area of the office which is no where near the beautiful, picturesque area around the ceremony site. Not to mention it was about middle of the day when we arrived with the sun high in the sky and nearly no shade to be found anywhere for pictures.
But God was good to us as he always is. Just as soon as the Jennifer was in her dress, ready for pictures, and no sooner had she stepped outside some cloud cover rolled in and it remained overcast long enough to get in some great portraits. These photos, the ones with Jennifer and the flowers in the background and the ones with the fence in the background would not have been possible had it not been for God blessing us with some cloud cover just exactly when we needed it. Thank you, God!
Forrest Hills Mountain Resort has some wonderful cabin rentals making it a great wedding venue for those needing lodging for out of town guests. We photographed her dress hanging up over the bed in one of these cabins. The room was wonderfully decorated, we flower petals thrown on the bed and around the hot tub, hinting of a romantic night awaiting the newlyweds later that night.
We shot the shoes on the railing of the porch and also inside the cabin utilizing some wonderful window light.
The wedding was delightfully decorated with a sunflower theme. I think the bumble bees enjoyed them just as much as we did. 🙂
Their little boy was hysterical. He had us in stitches for much of the day.
The horse and carriage ride is a fabulous perk for anyone having a Forrest Hills Mountain Resort wedding. It’s so romantic hearing the clop clop clop of horses hooves as it comes around the bin.
We love the emotion on everyone’s faces as the bride walks down the aisle.
