We had no idea how amazing Mountain Magnolia Inn was until we were able to photograph Serena and James’ beautiful wedding there!
There is so much to say about this wedding. What stands out most are the many, many, many details that went into it. James, the groom, (yes, the groom) seemed to have spent a lot of time and effort into making this wedding super detailed and meaningful. He even made the chandeliers people! How cool is that? And Serena was so cool and laid back. She was seemingly happy to let him do his thing even though I am sure she helped plan some of the details as well.
In the 13 years they have been together Serena and James have lived all over the country. They invited their closest friends and family from all of those places to the inn for a destination wedding. I loved how they incorporated each area they have lived at into the details.
Cortney from Asheville Event Company did a fantastic job of helping pull everyone together to make this a flawless event. Everything went so smooth. We love Cortney and her up beat personality. She even went a little crazy in the photo fun center.
I am going to let the pictures do the rest of the talking. Enjoy a glimpse into this incredible day.
The beautiful inn. Doesn’t this make you want to stay here?

Serena and James rented River Magic Cabin near the inn for this dress shot and the first look shots.

I have never seen a hornet’s nest as part of the decor at a wedding! I loved it. So detailed and intricate. Props to Flora and their mad floral design skills!
One of Serena and James’ friends drew this cartoon from a photo of the couple. I loved how they incorporated this in the details.
More Flora magic!

One of our favorite moments. Pure. Joy.
