Welcome to this Leatherwood Mountains Resort wedding! You may remember these two from their adventure session at our new property or from Kelly’s rustic bridal session at her farm. We’ve already had such a blast with this sweet couple, capturing some major milestones. But their amazing wedding day, takes the cake!
This spot is not only a beautiful and remote place to get married. It also has a huge creek running through the mountains, rustic cabins to stay in, beautiful pastures, forest trails, and horse stables. All surrounded by gorgeous nature.
The main reason these two chose this venue was so Kelly could bring her beloved horse, Cheyenne, along. Kelly got to live out every little girl’s wedding dream by riding down the aisle, horseback towards her handsome groom. Talk about a real life fairytale!
Seth & Kelly also had to bring along their three amazing Australian Shepherd pups. Spending time with the bride while she got ready for the day was such a treat for everyone. We loved having them in front of our cameras again and could tell the Aussies loved getting to sniff around the cabins as people shuffled in and out. We know first hand how much Aussies love being apart of adventures, so we think it was perfect for Seth & Kelly to include them.
Seth came and joined Kelly at her cabin for their first look and these two were so cute together standing in front of the stables waiting to get a glimpse of each another. Before heading down the mountain for the ceremony, we took advantage of the high elevated backdrop and the mountains peeking through the trees.
We headed down the mountain to begin the ceremony. A gorgeous spot nestled under the trees, sitting next to an old cabin from the 1800s. Seeing the rustic, vintage vibes and hearing the creek just outside was so peaceful for a wedding ceremony. They had a huge twig harbor where Seth & Kelly took turns reading their shared vows back and forth to one another. It was such a clever twist on traditional vows and we adored hearing their shared promises to each other.
We were obsessed with the AMAZING Autumn day. The weather felt perfect, not too hot or too cold, and made the day even sweeter. Stealing Seth & Kelly for some one-on-one time after they were hitched was the perfect opportunity to venture down to the creek. Seth popped down his truck bed and we hopped on and rode around to some fun spots around the property.
Their reception spot was held under a huge horse barn and we loved the equestrian vibes. Our favorite touch was seeing Kelly’s horse, Cheyenne, in the pasture right next to their reception spot. Kelly even had a table setup with treats for her guests to come and feed Cheyenne in between dance numbers. It was so cool that Cheyenne got to be apart of the entire Leatherwood Mountains wedding day.
Seth & Kelly, we enjoyed being with you two for your special day and feel so lucky to know you both! Thanks for choosing us and allowing us to witness these amazing moments.. Love you guys!!
Mark & Kelly
