Styled Shoot at Lonesome Valley in Cashiers, North Carolina | Part One

Three times a year I attend and photograph at the esteemed Engage Luxury Wedding and Business Summits, held at luxury resorts all over the world! The last one I attended was at The Kimpton Seafire Resort on Grand Cayman, and it was simply amazing! The time before it was on Cayman at The Ritz Carlton and it was there that I had the opportunity to meet Sarah Jennings from Lonesome Valley in Cashiers North Carolina. She raved about her mountain property and encouraged us to come visit. So, being the doer that I am, I set the wheels in motion and created a team of trusted creative professionals from all over, all of which, I might add, I met at the Engage Luxury Wedding and Business Summits in the years prior! We all flew or drove down to Lonesome Valley and once we unpacked and got settled, we set off to tour the property and figure out which spots are the ones that moved me to photograph in them! The image above, shows the couple in a little steam complete with adorable little wildflowers, I mean, COME ON! What a sweet spot this is for photos, and I could not resist creating a few here! OK just kidding the entire POST features the work we created here, in this little streamy waterfall nook! Wait until you see what we did at the boat house- stay tuned, that got it’s own post entirely!
From our stylist from this destination styled shoot, beth Chapman from Beth Chapman Styling, “This luxury mountain wedding inspired photo shoot was a dream to collaborate on! It not only involved some of the best wedding vendors in the country (see the list below), but it was shot at the most stunning location! Lonesome Valley is a rustic, elegant venue nestled in the blue mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina. The views and ambiance are beyond epic. Owner and stylist, Beth Chapman, felt the only way to match this location was to find an epic gown! And we think that she fit the bill with this unique floral wedding gown by Gustavo Cadile. Coupled with a 3-dimensional floral veil by Sara Gabriel, it oozed Southern charm, which was just perfect for this romantic photo shoot!”
