Wedding Spotlight: Shelby and Nathan

This month’s wedding spotlight: October 16th, 2020. It was a beautiful Fall day. It was also the day that Shelby and Nathan chose to get married at Hidden River Events. The weather in the western North Carolina mountains that day was as breathtaking as the wedding.

Getting Ready

The bridal party prepared for the special event in the Quartz Room. The Groomsmen were on-site, getting ready as well at the White House. Accordingly, the father of the bride escorted her in a white, horse-drawn carriage. The wedding site was a beautiful spot in front of an old sycamore tree.

Wedding Spotlight: The Ceremony

The wedding began promptly at 5 pm. The couple stood before an arbor of flowers created by Hidden River’s own florist, Meagan. The colors of the wedding decor had an emphasis on white and greenery for an elegant look. The couple exchanged vows in front of 100 guests, all captured by their photographer, Maddie Kay of Maddie Kay Photography.

Following the ceremony, guests moved over to a beautifully decorated white tent for cocktail hour and the reception. Accordingly, the bride and groom took the white carriage for a “just married ride” before arriving at the tent to meet their guests with their dog in tow.

Wedding Spotlight: The Party

Following cocktails and appetizers of meatballs, fried mac and cheese, and hot cider, the reception kicked off with speeches and dancing. Dinner was a traditional Southern affair catered by Anne’s Custom Catering. Afterwards, guests dined on Southern favorites like pulled pork and collards. Following dinner, there was a DJ, speeches, and lots of dancing.

Wedding Spotlight: The Cake

The wedding cake was a beautiful white with fresh flowers and white icing. Additionally, inside were layers with delicious strawberry filling and almond buttercream in between.

The End

At the end of the night, guests saw the couple off with sparklers and well wishes. Shelby and a beaming Nathan left after their dream mountain wedding to start their lives as man and wife.

Vow Renewals
We Specialize in All-Inclusive

At first, we thought all-inclusive meant just having all the infrastructure ready to go for the couple, so what looks like such a simply beautiful, largely outdoor wedding could be as clean and simple as the lines of the tent.  There should be no hassles about getting in all the infrastructure and having it ready for your wedding. We did not want to witness a rental truck showing up at the last minute and a mom or bridesmaid, or the couple themselves, setting up chairs and tables–even mowing the yard–on the morning of the wedding.  These were all things Jeanne witnessed repeatedly over the years. No wonder people were exhausted before their wedding even began…
