Mountain Fall Weddings

We live in Florida and are quite accustomed to beach weddings, which are beautiful. Since my heart is with the mountains, I love a mountain wedding. Sweet Man and I were just riding away last fall in North Carolina. No real destination. We are notorious for a day with no plans at all and see where we end up.

Such was a day in October of 2012. We saw a beautiful area that we thought was a park. Turns out it was a subdivision but at the front of the subdivision was a beautiful old farm house. It is actually a glorious business. They not only provide a magnificent location for weddings but they offer artisan food and farm kitchen culinary classes. They even have a package where you can spend the night in one of their lovely suites. It is called the Inn at Little Pond Farm. The owners invited us in for a tour, the kitchens are a dream! There was to be a wedding that was set up for the afternoon. The  bride graciously allowed us to take a multitude of pictures ( I sent her copies of), at which I am going to include each one because it was such a charming, simple fall wedding and reception. Simple yet with just right touches that made you warm. I was wishing at this point I was a guest at this joyous occasion. I am sure by the time we left that they were ready to call security to come get us. I seriously could have spent all day there. Please enjoy all the pictures. I hope you can envision yourself sitting under the trees with your blanket and a large cup of hot tea or cocoa.
