A Handmade Mountain Wedding by Perry Vaile Photography


mint green bridesmaidsCorinthians 13:4-8 “Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails…”

From Perry Vaile Photography: “Britney & Logan’s sweet DIY wedding is the perfect mix of Southern lovin’ and mountain livin’.  We’re lucky here in North Carolina to get to enjoy this special vibe, where a bride can say “I do” on the side of a mountain, and sit down to her reception table with mason jars.  These two love birds worked tirelessly to put together their wedding and to make it uniquely THEM.  Logan made the wooden signs by hand that pointed out the way to the ceremony and reception.  In a super sweet show of love, he made a full set of signs that read the bible verse (1 Corinthians 13:4) to line the aisle as Britney walked down.  Britney made an apple pie instead of a wedding cake because it was the first thing she ever cooked for Logan.  With heartfelt details like this, and such a truly kind and amazing (not to mention gorgeous) couple, I’d love to shoot their wedding over every day and twice on Sundays!”  We hope y’all love this handmade mountain wedding as much as we do!

    I love seeing Brit’s creativity and hard work along with Perry’s amazing photography skills featured on this site. If only people knew the time and thought that the couple put into EVERY detail of their special day. Thank you Perry for capturing it all so that they can remember it forever! I may be biased but this was the most beautiful and love filled wedding I have ever been a part of! Best to Britney and Logan in their long happy life together! <3

  • […] I love this photo. I think this is SUCH a super cute idea for any photographer to take. Not ONLY for the bride and groom to have as part of their photo collection, but because I think it’s a cute photo to somehow send over to the groom to see before everyone walks down the aisle. Pretty cute. This photo was originally pinned from this blog. […]
