Elopment in Valle Crucis, North Carolina

What a delight to travel to Lazy Bear Lodge, near Blowing Rock, to meet a wonderful couple so very much in love. It was going to take more than a little bit of snow to keep John and Wendy from getting married!
 You certainly can't predict the weather but how nice when it cooperates. 
February 16th could not have been more perfect for a mountain wedding. Just enough snow for a great atmosphere but not too much to keep the minister from arriving safely!
Wendy and John were so very excited that their wedding day had finally arrived.
Their ceremony took place in the parlor and then the happy couple moved to the dining area for a private reception.
Doesn't this cake look delicious?
Cutting the wedding cake
symbolizing a shared future. 

And did you know... feeding cake to each other (tender sharing of a sweet morsel) symbolize the couples commitment to provide for each other with loving care.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance unto you and give you peace.

Best wishes to a wonderful couple!
