Eleanor and Steve’s Backyard Mountain Wedding

Eleanor and Steve’s Backyard Mountain Wedding

Eleanor and Steve have been together for a while… 10 years! They met in college and share a love of music, travel, cooking and the outdoors. When Steve (finally!) proposed on their 10th anniversary, it was time to plan a party to celebrate!

Eleanor + Steve currently live in Boston, but as lovers of the mountains and with family in Asheville, they decided to host their wedding on family property in North Carolina. They wanted their guests to have fun and to celebrate their marriage in a relaxed setting. The ceremony took place on the lawn with the autumn-colored mountains as the backdrop.  A light mist welcomed guests, but didn’t dampen anyones spirits. Officiated by the brides uncle, the ceremony incorporated personal touches. The joy between the couple and their guests was bountiful! We incorporated farm tables and exposed wood combined with rustic, simple decor for the reception. With a palate of blues, green, cream and touches of gold, local seasonal flowers with colorful jars brightened the tables. Signature cocktails, local beer, cornhole, bocce and horseshoes entertained the guests during the cocktail hour and after a wonderful BBQ dinner, the guests packed the dance floor and danced to the amazing Dickens band.
