North Carolina Mountains Wedding Photography: Anne Marie and Joey


I always welcome a trip to the North Carolina mountains in the fall and Anne Marie and Joey's wedding was a perfect reason to travel to the Banner Elk Winery on a spectacular fall afternoon.

I had the pleasure of working with this attractive, athletic couple during their engagement session at Jetton Park in June.

We had ample opportunities for photography in the beautiful surroundings from the unique ceremony setting to the amazing views of the upper vineyards.

Many thanks to the incredibly organized Cortenay Munn Matters of Carolina Wedding Design, who along with her colleague Elle Allen had everything running like a well-oiled machine. Lingky Sugg of Flowers by Lingky created the beautiful florals and the staff at Banner Elk Winery was a pleasure to work with.

Company photographer Laura Mueller made the trek up the mountain as well and she helped capture all of the wonderful moments throughout the day.

Congratulations to Anne Marie, Joey and their families!
