Ayla & Brinton’s woodland wedding in Burnsville, NC was fantastic!

Burnsville is quickly becoming one of my favorite little towns in North Carolina! It’s small, sweet, but has everything you need to feel welcome in this cozy little town!
 
Ayla & Brinton are a big reason why it’s so welcoming. From the moment I met Ayla at the Burnsville Bridal Expo, there was an instant connection. Since then, the four of us bonded over dinner and were welcomed to their wedding like we were long lost family. We love weddings where we feel “at home” with everyone. It’s so special.

Planning can be overwhelming

When Ayla first started planning her wedding, I remember how overwhelming it was for her. Trying to find the right vendors who were kind & helpful was actually pretty hard. I remember several phone chats where we discussed location, how many guests to invite, and how not to throw up in the middle of her ceremony!
 
You see, Ayla had a lot of anxiety leading up to the day. And I find that this is more common with our brides than it use to be. It doesn’t have to do with their grooms, they’re set on getting married. It’s he idea of all of those eyes during the ceremony that is so terrifying.

Unique & Perfect!

Happily, you’d never know that Ayla was nervous on her wedding day. From the moment we saw her to the walk down the isle she was calm & collected. Most of that was due to her hard work in finding the right people & vendors to surround herself with. She made the schedule the way she wanted and everything fell into place perfectly! One of my favorite parts of the day was when Ayla & Brinton walked down the isle as husband & wife. The first thing Ayla said was “I didn’t throw up!” Everyone laughed and clapped for her success!
 
I loved how different and meaningful everything was for Ayla & Brinton. They chose to get married in the most beautiful field at their home. Social Grace Events did an incredible job marrying the decor for their wedding. Book page runners for Ayla’s love of literature & antlers for hunter Brinton. It all came together so elegantly! Pigs & Grits provided the exceptional brunch. I LOVE my breakfast food! My oh my!
 
I can’t stop grinning when I think back this sweet little wedding. Thank you Ayla for trusting your gut & booking Daniel & I. We were so honored and just adore you & Brinton! I can’t wait till the next time we all get to hang out!
 
XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Nu Wray Inn Burnsville, NC

Last winter, Daniel and I attended the Burnsville Bridal Expo as vendors. It was a last minute decision since we’re not big into the mass chaos that comes from Bridals shows. However, Burnsville knows how to do it right and we had a great time meeting so many fantastic brides!
 
We also took the Bridal show as an opportunity to give back. 2017 marks the 10th season that I’ve been shooting weddings! Can you believe it?! So in celebration for 10 years of weddings, we decided to give away a wedding collection to one lucky couple at the bridal show!
 
Margaret & Jackie were the very deserving winners of that giveaway! They chose to get married right in Burnsville at the Nu Wray Inn. Their wedding was a perfect blend of old Burnsville charm and whimsical details! Most of the details were hand made by Margaret & her family! Just look at that wedding ceremony background?!
 
The rain held off long enough for us to get through the ceremony & formal pictures. A light sprinkle settled over the day, which was perfect since Jackie’s last name is Sprinkle! Everyone had a blast dancing in the rain and cheering Margaret & Jackie on! There were sprinkles in abundance! Rainy sprinkles, human sprinkles, and CANDY sprinkles! What wedding have you attended where there was a sprinkle battle commencing on the dance floor?! It was SO MUCH FUN to photograph!
 
As the event wound down, friends and family helped clean up and warmed up inside the Nu Wray Inn. We said our goodbyes and drove back down the mountain with giant smiles on our faces. What a wonderfully unique and beautiful day! Congrats Margaret & Jackie! We’re so excited for this next chapter in your adventure of life!
 
XOXOXO,
Mabyn
