When couples inquire about small intimate weddings, I usually mention Kate and Luke’s wedding at Cataloochee Ranch last Fall. Not only was their wedding during one of the peak leaf weekends, but it was an adorable diy and cozy wedding. With only around fifteen guests, the atmosphere was cheery and light. Every few minutes we ducked into the tent to avoid the drizzle, but the few hours we had were incredible. Kate and Luke are adorable together. Truly. Their happiness, giggles, and smiles really shown through.
Kate and Luke’s wedding was the tip of the ice burg for small weddings that I photographed last fall. [Justin + Allie’s and Caleb and Lindsay’s were a few of the others.] There’s such a sense of calmness when there’s only a handful of people. Suddenly, the wedding becomes a celebration of marriage instead of just a large party. You can literally feel the love. (Yes, I’m a total sap about these things.)
Before I continue to gush, here’s Kate and Luke’s wedding day. Enjoy!
