Real Wedding: Mary Christin and John

Today’s Real Wedding submission comes to us from Heather Durham Photography. Mary Christin and John had a perfectly intimate wedding for just family members in November at Mountain Chapel. We love small weddings like this that focus on the meaning of the day.  The best part is that the couple had time together for beautiful golden light photos to be made at Aldridge Gardens after the ceremony. The fall colors create a beautiful natural backdrop for stunning images that instantly caught our eye. We love this simply chic Nicole Miller dress paired with an elegant headband for a refined bohemian look. Of course, even for an intimate wedding like this you must have at least a two-tier cake – one for sharing with guests and one for the one-year anniversary. Some wedding traditions can be broken, but we encourage sticking to any rules that mean more cake – especially when it’s from Olexa’s! Congrats Mary Christin and John!
