North Carolina mountain wedding | Photo by WE Photographie | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=80420

Wesley & Emma, the duo behind W&E Photographie, say they’ve never seen rain ruin a wedding. And if you happen to be exchanging vows next to a lake surrounded by mountains and trees in North Carolina, a little drizzle may actually sweeten the day a bit.

About the venue, c/o W&E Photographie, Cashiers, NC is nestled deep in the blue ridge mountains and it’s full of amazing views, tasty eats, and quirky antique shops. High Hampton Inn & Country Club gushes rustic charm and has the feel of a camp for grown-ups… Dirty dancing, anyone? The foggy, crisp mornings, mountain views, and sprawling dahlia garden were enough to get us scheming about how we could stay at the inn permanently.

Lauren and Alex enlisted the talented Jacki Gil of Salt & Paperie for many of the graphics: Invitations, programs, bar menu, flower toss, glowstick send off, polaroid, cornhole coards, the writing on the time capsule, this directional sign, and more.

One of Lauren’s favorite memories: When the sun came out during our ceremony. Alex and I both exchanged looks during hoping that it wouldn’t downpour on everyone! When the sun came out just as we were getting pronounced, it just felt perfect. So many people were involved in making our day shine, and Alex and I are so grateful and so thankful to all of our vendors and for all of our family and friends who traveled in.

On their color palette, c/o Sebesta Design: The milky mint green color not only stands beautifully on it’s own, but also makes everything around it pop. The rich purples, the raspberry tones and the gold all played off the mint green creating a delicate balance drawing your eyes up and down, in and out and back and forth.

Feeling something vibrant and sparkly today? Of course ya are. For this art gallery shoot, photog Christina Karst and teamed up with Taylor of LIGHT Art+Design and collaborators from all different cities to create an artsy vignette with industrial vibes and the best kind of details (killer sequins and florals, we mean!).

Taylor says, Emily of Emily Triplett Jewelry took my concept board and ran with it; the custom bands she created are so beautiful that I am now having her work on my own for my wedding!

Becky of The Wilding Collective wanted the florals to be works of art in themselves. They sure are!

So many custom made elements went into this shoot. Taylor tells us, Ele Annand and Beth Schiable combined their killer letterpress and calligraphy skills to create an invitation and place card set that is beautiful enough to frame. HAAND created a custom cake stand specifically for this shoot! Their work can easily transfer from centerpieces at a wedding right into the newlyweds’ home… Sweet Little Something listened to our needs for the cake and macaroons and gave all of it an extra dose of style.
